I have been through many ups and downs in my life like everyone else and it seems when things are the bleakest, that's when god directly reaches out to you-whether it be in a dream or feeling his words in your mind and heart. I have seen his work in my life, I have had prayers answered and not always what I asked for or in the time frame I requested, but always what was best for me.
One dream I remember was when I was twenty two years old and going through a lot of turmoil from a bad relationship and also making a mess out of myself with my constant heavy drinking, I was depressed and always considering suicide and then I had this profound dream - so vivid and real I remember it like yesterday although it's been eight years now.
In the dream, I was in my bed when I felt a hand gently touch my foot and as I looked up I saw a white gown, but this gown was so clean and perfectly pressed and I remember thinking how can it be so white? It's hard to describe the perfection and radiance of this gown, the most purest cleanest white. I then noticed the shoulder length wavy light brown hair but when I reached the person's face it was blinded with light and I just KNEW I was in the presence of Jesus, as soon as I had this realization he spoke to me, but not in words, it was from his mind to my mind and I absorbed his words at lightning speed and he said, Everything will be all right. All of a sudden I saw dark shadows behind him and I heard a horrible wailing and enraged shrieking from these demons, I woke up very afraid.
I realized that it was symbolic because these demons were angry that Jesus was there for me, they are out to take as many people down with them as they can and they know they are powerless against our lord.
