    Well, this is it, everybody: the last day of Dreamer's Challenge!  No more semi-personal journal entries about Megan (thank the LORD!)...
    Here is my final post for Dreamer's Challenge:

     My dream last night was bizarre: in it, I had a strange disease that caused me to grow extra limbs, and I could not figure out how to make it stop.  It was very embarrassing.  When I prayed, the extra limbs vanished.
    I was wondering if the dream could have any possible meaning for my life this morning, and then it hit me--I mean, literally HIT me--I stubbed my toe (again) on a closet door, the same toe I bust open while running on pavement a few days ago.  I needed to apply a band-aide to my toe to protect it, but the band-aide box in the closet was empty.  Frustrated, I began to despair of finding a band-aide at all, when I finally, at long-last, saw it: one protective sticker peeking its nude, flat body out from beneath a bottle of medicine.  YES!  My first impulse was to actually thank God for the discovery

...and THAT is when it hit me: God wants to heal me.  He wants me to come to HIM for help, just as He declared to me in Psalm 50:14-15 for Day 6 of Dreamer's Challenge, 

"Offer to God
thanksgiving, and pay your vows to the Most High. Call upon Me in the day of trouble; I will deliver you, and you shall glorify Me.” 

I am not yet sure how this applies to my life, but now I know where I will be looking for spiritual "band-aides" from now on: Jesus.

     Final Dreamer's Challenge note: May we all not only learn to be genuinely thankful, but learn to commit our lives--both the good and the bad--into His loving hands, and allow Him to heal our spiritual wounds.

    Ardently Yours,

  1. Congratulations on finishing the long seven day challenge!!! That last dream was crazy with the extra limbs. I'm picturing a very strange image in my mind right now :) Love how you gleaned the truth about God's desire to heal through the stubbing of your toe and the band aid. Very cool. I'd love to see a separate section just for good books you'd recommend. So hard to find good books-maybe a couple sentences describing the book and the reading level? Can't wait for the installment story...
