It was one of the weirdest dreams I’ve had in a while, but what I’ve learned in my short time
with God, pay attention to them.
I was in a travel trailer with Jared’s dad who passed away years ago. Bob Frazier and I had a special relationship. I loved that man. He was a lot like Jared and had such a passion for Jesus, it was evident. I think many people misunderstood him. I understand that feeling, because I have felt that way myself. Bob was one of a kind.
Now, in my dream, this travel trailer was moving and moving fast. As I recall it, Bob and I where standing inside of it, I was bracing myself on one side of the kitchen island, while Bob was bracing himself on the other side. He looked me square in the eyes and said, “Amy, you’re going to have to move to the other side of this thing so the weight shifts. It should stop this RV.” I remember saying back to him, “Ok.” But I just stood there frozen in fear. The RV seemed to stop, but only for a brief moment, and off again, it started moving.
At the time I didn’t think it was really a big deal. It seemed in my dream the RV was moving on its own, not hitched to a truck, so it wouldn’t be traveling too far. As I looked out the right side window, the trailer beside us was gone rather quickly. This time as I looked at Bob, he just said, “Brace yourself!” And we did. To no avail, we ended up crashing and hitting a ditch which caused us to flip and demolish the entire trailer.
I remember screaming, “NO!” Which woke up Jared in the middle of the night. He then asked me if I was ok. I think I said something in mumble jumble and went back to sleep.
I remember seeing the devastation and feeling so empty. I had lost everything.
I know dreams are given for a reason, especially the ones we remember. This one was very pointed.
As I was driving, later that day heading to a meeting, I realized my dream was about our lives. The RV travel trailer was an example of our outer shell, and our inward tent, our family and friends, our entire existence really. We’re all just temporary travelers.
I was traveling to somewhere, but the direction wasn’t beneficial. I needed to move and make adjustments in my dream, but I was frozen in fear. That fear cost me my life, yes quite frankly, it cost me everything.
But the most beautiful part about this tragic story and so many other possible ones if we’re not careful ……
Thank you God.
