Swindoll on Dreams

“Dreams are specific, not general. Dreams are personal, not public. God doesn’t give anyone else my dreams on a public computer screen for others to read. He gives to me personally. They’re intimate images and ideas. Dreams can easily appear to others as extreme and illogical. If you share your dreams with the crowd, they’ll probably laugh at you because you can’t make logical sense out of them. Dreams are often accompanied by a strong desire to fulfill them. And they are always outside the realm of the unexpected. Sometimes they’re downright shocking. They cause people to suck in their breath, to stand staring at you with their mouth open. A common response when you share a dream is “you’ve gotta be kidding! Are you serious?”

Charles R. Swindoll, Living Above the Level of Mediocrity, 98-99
