The other morning I had a dream that I was back in my old house in my bedroom and the door was locked. Then the door between the front and back of the house was locked. But somehow I knew the front door was unlocked, so I proceeded to go out and lock it.
In real life, I was always very conscious of the doors being locked because I lived alone and there were three different ways to enter the house. After I had the dream, I didn’t have a clue what it meant.
A lot of times, God will give me the interpretation to my dreams. But sometimes I don’t get it and I will look the dream up. There is a dictionary that I find helpful. So when I looked it up I saw this definition:
To dream that you are locking the door suggests that you are closing yourself off from others. You are hesitant in letting others in and revealing your feelings. It is indicative of some fear and low self-worth.
I believe this is what God was showing me. It’s not easy to open up once someone hurts you, or shuts a door on you. Most of the time we want to lock them out of ours lives forever. The fear is that if we open up, they will do it again. At first I thought God was telling me to lock the door. But the definition gave great enlightenment
Time heals all wounds and when someone apologizes, there is always that chance to unlock a door as long as that person comes correctly.
1 Corinthians 13:4-6
New International Version (NIV)
4 Love is patient, love is kind. It does not envy, it does not boast, it is not proud. 5 It does not dishonor others, it is not self-seeking, it is not easily angered, it keeps no record of wrongs. 6 Love does not delight in evil but rejoices with the truth.
