Bring It On: Dreams

I have been having alot of dreams lately, could God be speaking to me through dreams? I can't stop my distrust of others. My parents were adulterers, and I have unclean thoughts myself sometimes. My lack of trust is pushing the woman I love ... Read Transcript


Kristi: LET'S GET TO

THE E-MAIL QUESTIONS.

SOPHIE SAYS, "I DREAM A

LOT.

MOST DREAMS I UNDERSTAND,

BUT SOME I DON'T

UNDERSTAND.

I PRAY ABOUT THEM, FOR GOD

TO MAKE THE GOOD ONES COME

TRUE AND THE BAD ONES TO BE

REVERSED.

I HAVE EVEN STARTED KEEPING

A DREAM JOURNAL.

COULD GOD BE TELLING ME

THINGS THROUGH MY DREAMS,

AND HOW DO I UNDERSTAND MY

DREAMS?"

Pat: IN THE OLD

TESTAMENT, GOD DID SPEAK TO

PEOPLE THROUGH VISIONS AND

DREAMS.

BUT I THINK MOST DREAMS HAD

TO DO WITH WHAT YOU HAD FOR

DINNER.

IF YOU'RE FOCUSED ON

SOMETHING BEFORE YOU GO TO

SLEEP, THAT'S WHAT WILL COME

UP IN A DREAM.

I WOULDN'T PUT TOO MUCH

STOCK IN DREAMS.

IT'S THE KIND OF THING

YOU'RE DREAMING SOMETHING

AND IT DOES COME TO PASS,

YOU BEGIN TO THINK GOD IS

USING THOSE DREAMS TO TELL

ME.úG

Kristi: SUSAN SAYS,

"I'M A SINGLE MOTHER OF

THREE GIRLS, AND WHEN I

DATE, AND I TELL THEM MY

CHILDREN ARE ALL FROM OTHER

COUNTRIES, THEY DON'T WANT

TO DATE AGAIN.

THEY SAY THEY'RE OKAY IF THE

GIRLS WERE BIOLOGICAL

CHILDREN AND CAME WITH CHILD

SUPPORT.

WHY ARE THESE MEN ACTING

THIS WAY?"

CAN I ANSWER?

I WAS GOING TO SAY DOGS --

NO, BUT THAT IS JUST WRONG

ON EVERY LEVEL.

Pat: THAT'S NOT WRONG.

A MAN DOES NOT WANT TO TAKE

ON THE UNITED NATIONS.

THIS WOMAN HAS ALL OF THESE

VARIOUS CHILDREN, A BLENDED

FAMILY.

YOU DON'T KNOW WHAT PROBLEMS

THERE ARE.

I'M SERIOUS, I HAVE A DEAR

FRIEND, ADOPTED A LITTLE KID

FROM AN ORPHANAGE DOWN IN

COLUMBIA.

AND THE CHILD HAD BRAIN

DAMAGE AND GREW UP WEERLD.

YOU NEVER KNOW WHAT HAS BEEN

DONE TO A CHILD BEFORE YOU

GET THAT CHILD.

WHAT KIND OF SEXUAL ABUSE,

WHAT KIND OF FOOD

DEPRIVATION, ETC., ETC.,

ETC. YOU'RE NOT A DOG

BECAUSE YOU DON'T WANT TO

TAKE ON THAT RESPONSIBLE.

BUT LOOK AT TERRY.

SHE IS A MOTHER OF ADOPTED

CHILDREN, BUT SHE HAS HAD

SOME PROBLEMS WITH ADOPTED

CHILDREN.

Kristi: YOU READY,

PAT?

WHAT IF GOD TREATED US THE

WAY WE TREATED EACH OTHER?

IF ALL OF US COME WITH

BAGGAGE AND ISSUES AND

PROBLEMS AND CHALLENGES, AND

IF GOD LOOKED AT US AND SAID

YOU'RE NOT THIS, SO I DON'T

WANT TO ACCEPT YOU --

Pat: BUT YOU DON'T HAVE

TO TAKE ON SOMEBODY ELSE'S

PROBLEMS.

I MEAN, YOU REALLY DON'T.

YOU CAN GO HELP PEOPLE.

YOU CAN MINISTER TO PEOPLE.

WE MINISTER TO ORPHANS ALL

OVER THE WORLD, THOUSANDS OF

THEM.

WE LOVE ORPHANS, WE LOVE

HELPING PEOPLE.

THAT DOESN'T NECESSARILY

MEAN I WANT TO TAKE ALL OF

THE ORPHANS AROUND THE WORLD

INTO MY HOME.

OKAY, LET'S GET TO THE NEXT

QUESTION.

I'M IN TROUBLE.

Kristi: OKAY.

YOU'RE IN TROUBLE.

WE'RE GOING TO BRING YOU

BACK.

CHRIS WRITES, "I CAN'T TRUST

MY PARENTS.

MY PARENTS WERE ADULTERERS.

MY LACK OF TRUST IS PUSHING

THE WOMAN I LOVE AWAY.

HOW CAN I LEARN TO TRUST

OTHERS?"

Pat: YOU NEED SOME

SERIOUS PSYCHOLOGICAL

COUNSELLING FROM A CHRISTIAN

COUNSELLOR.

WHAT HAS BEEN DONE TO YOU?

SO YOUR PARENTS WERE

ADULTERERS, SO?

THAT DOESN'T GIVE YOU A

REASON TO DISTRUST

EVERYBODY.

IF GOD FORGIVES YOU AND GOD

ACCEPTS YOU AND GOD LOVES

YOU, THE THING YOU NEED TO

DO IS WALK IN THE LOVE OF

GOD AND REALIZE THIS

ACCEPTANCE AND HIS LOVE FOR

YOU, AND LET THAT LOVE BURST

FORTH FROM YOU.

AND THAT WILL BE THE

ANSWER.

BUT YOU NEED SOME HELP ON

THIS ONE.

AND THIS IS NOT A SERIOUS

PSYCHOLOGICAL PROBLEM THAT

YOU CAN'T OVERCOME.

THIS IS RELATIVELY SURFACE,

AND I THINK, REGARDLESS OF

WHAT YOU SAY, YOU CAN

OVERCOME THIS WITH A CERTAIN

AMOUNT OF INTELLIGENT

SPIRITUAL COUNSELLING.
