I recently had a strange and wonderful dream.
I dreamt that I was driving down an old black top
road one warm summer evening.It was a fine night
and with a sky full of stars to light my way, I was contemplating
to myself how majestic God’s universe really was.
With the windows rolled down and a gentle breeze to cool the
evening hours, I came to a rather large hill on the blacktop road.
As I proceeded down the hill, my headlights revealed that I was
quickly approaching an old iron bridge with another hillside just
beyond it. As I neared the bridge, the whole countryside suddenly
came aglow with the most beautiful radiant light.
I stopped my car in front of the bridge and got out to take a look.
The descending light had transformed the entire hillside
into a threshold of unparalleled beauty. God was there in all
His glory and I could feel His loving spirit encompass my soul.
I stood in the presence of our Father and although I could not see
His face, I could feel His spirit penetrate my very being.
He spoke to me through the stillness of the night and I felt the
compelling force of His Spirit beckon unto me to cross over to
the other side. I was so overcome by such a profound sense of
joy and peace that I had no desire to walk back to my car and
return home. I do not know why I dreamt this particular dream
or what significance it may have had but I do know one thing,
“God was on the other side of that bridge and I was ready to
cross over.” I now have a new perspective on life and the fear
of death has lost its grip on me.
