I dreamed that I had an out of body experience during sleep. I died in my sleep for a few minutes and went to Heaven. Upon reaching Heaven I was immediately at the feet of the most powerful, light and force imaginable. It was so overwhelming, in a positive manner that I could not react, look up or move. I was frozen at the feet of my Savior and Lord Jesus Christ. I could not look up but knew it was him. He communicated with me mentally without words. He wanted me to know that I would be OK and to keep faith.
This dream occurred during a very rough time in my life where my wife and I were experiencing job loss, money issues and had two small children. I had lost my job at a company, not to be named after nearly seven years of committed service. I was betrayed at the job by an upper level manager that I trusted and had lots of confidence in. Anyways, that committed service got me released for something I truly did not do and it impacted my thoughts on humanity, who I was as a person and man.
Not being able to feed your family and find a job was so overwhelming that I had reached a boiling point in life. I had shut down and was not myself and it was impacting everyone on the household. The worst thing a father ever wants to not be able to do is provide for his family. I prayed every night for help, guidance and grace for my family and self. Once I had this dream it set in motion many more occurrences with forces that we all are yet to understand fully.
I can tell you that the glory of Heaven is unimaginable, it is glorious, and beautiful to say the least. At the time I didn’t really understand why I went to heaven, maybe it was a calling, maybe it was a warning, maybe it was a divine intervention for a normally loving, caring, and considerate person that had become something else. I thank God for giving me the dream, intervention, experience, call it what you want.
It changed the direction of my life and set me on a path to begin teaching public school exceptional children and I have never looked back. The woman that betrayed me died a few years later of cancer and it was sad. I had held onto some bad feelings about her and did not want to allow that to keep me from moving forward. Besides, she was human and we all make mistakes and do things we shouldn’t to people.
My advice would be to not let this type of thing get to you. It will eat you up from the inside out and destroy your life. Holding onto hate, anger, fear, and all those other ungodlike things will set you on a path that leads to the devil taking hold of your life and controlling you. When you get hurt, accept it, face it and overcome it. God only knows how to heal those wounds, do not try that on your own. Seek God’s grace and forgiveness before you begin to ask others to do the same.
