My strange dream

A couple of nights ago I had a dream.  This dream was so real that it took me a while to adjust to the fact that I had been dreaming. 

In my dream I was standing at the edge of lake.  As I stepped out to the lake my feet were held fast on the surface of the lake.  I took step after step expecting to sink at any moment.  The more steps I took the deeper out into the lake I went.  Eventually I got to the point where I began to realize that my faith was not going to give out and that I was not going to sink into the deep lake.  At this my faith swelled and I walked confidently on the lake.  At one point I stopped and lay down on the lake like one would lay down on the floor prostrate. 

My faith being bolstered by the integrity of the surface of the lake, which I could see down into, I got up and took off back to the shore.  On my way back I jumped over a small fishing boat, startling the fisherman in the boat.  As I approached the shore a crowd started to build because of their amazement and curiosity.  However, I found that people were more willing to hear what I had to say about the gospel for now I had some kind of authority to command their attention to hear the validity of what I had to say.  Then I awoke.

I do not know if this is just a random dream or if it is one of those promised in the book of Joel, but it gives me hope that my faith will not fail.  Maybe someday God will work in my life and my message something no man could believe.
