And then there are the dreams where I physically wrestle with wild animals. There was a huge yellow snake that I made into a lasso and whipped across a hotel lobby- I saved my children in that dream! And I was brave enough to slice a guy’s face in my dream a few nights ago. Knife violence is my biggest fear (up until moving to Uganda), so this was a pretty big breakthrough in dreamland. So, while sugarplums dance in my children's heads, I am fighting snakes and lions and scary guys for them. I always win.
I am hoping my winning streak means that God is preparing me to have confidence in the midst of trials. He is getting me ready to face some of my biggest fears. I hope I pass the test! (and find the right classroom…)
