    • Dreams seem to be cryptic commentaries in to our innermost psyche, laced with leftover impressions and fleeting thoughts from our day.  

      As I worked to understand the dream, I ran several possible scenarios through my mind. All of them were plausible, but none truly resonated within my spirit. I had the distinct impression I wasn’t making it personal enough. “This is about, me, isn’t it?” I finally had the courage to ask God. With that in mind, I began to look at each element as a symbol. What did it mean to me?

      The two young lions: Lions represent leaders to me. So two young lions would be two young leaders.

      Cages: A captive audience.  

      Feeding: Needed nourishment, in a timely fashion.

      Teen Daughter: a representation of my self, avoiding duty.

      A deep knowing came over me. It was met with shame and humility. As I became sure of the dreams meaning, I also became convicted. I had been avoiding the very thing that the Lord has called me to, making disciples.

      I had confused my calling with tasks and to-do lists. It happened gradually, almost imperceptibly, as the work load grew. As the days filled with more and more activity, I also found myself looking for ways to escape into my office-but resenting the interruptions.

      “If you don’t feed them what you want them to have when they get hungry, they will eat what you don’t want them to eat.”  

      My young volunteers, my captive audience, young leaders in the making, all hungry for what God has for them. That’s where you’ll find me. Feeding the hungry young lions.

      Thanks for reading!

        • Oh, Gosh, Cindy, this one gave me chicken skin! Especially the last part about your young volunteers not “eating” what is best but what you don’t want them to eat.

          Thank you for sharing your dream. Have you thought about this writing being published in a Christian publication? Maybe even as a short, inspirational story. I believe this has a lot of merit and can be shared with a larger audience. I know it comes from your heart but I think it has journalistic quality.

        • Wow, Cynthia, thank you for your kind words! I would have never thought of that.  

          BTW, do you see how close you were on the interpretation in the very beginning? Good job! I should have just asked you! but then, it probably wouldn’t have reached in so deeply.  

          Thanks for reading, friend!

        • Wow... I was hooked onto your dream and could not wait till you revealed.  How wonderful you have this insight.  You can be the modern Daniel.
