Is Your Light Shining?
I had a dream last night where I was taken to a home by a young blond-haired boy. I am not sure if the fact that the child’s blond hair stood out to me in the dream was significant or not. I remember going into the house and then came out and started up a steep path that was heavily wooded. At the base of the path there was a danger sign of a steep cliff ahead. When I got to the top I saw a lighthouse. The light holder in the lighthouse was turning but there was no light. I remember thinking that this would be extremely dangerous at night because one could fall to their death off the cliff let alone boats out at sea could crash and become shipwrecked because there was no light to warn them of impending danger. Across from the lighthouse a man was seated. I spoke to the man and came to find out that the house below as well as the lighthouse belonged to him. I asked him if the buildings were paid off and he replied yes. He did not seem to care that the light in the lighthouse was not functioning. He seemed quit comfortable sitting across from the lighthouse unlit.
The lighthouse in this dream represents ministry. His light had gone out and he was not concerned at all. His son brought me to the house but never mentioned the lighthouse. The man seemed totally unconcerned that his son’s life was being placed in danger because the light in the lighthouse had gone out. It is a frightening thing to be in darkness and not realize it or even worse to be in darkness and not care.
This dream spoke and is speaking volumes to me about my own life. A lighthouse with a nonworking light is worthless.
