Upon a Midnight Dream


Twas upon a midnight dream

To whit me own senses shall not glean.

Climbing a mountain so steep, so tall.

Life and death so near lest I slip and fall.

Pushing…pushing a huge stone up a hill so steep.


Limbs did shake and hands did bleed from the mighty, mighty weight.

Teardrops mingled with blood and fell in small puddles at my feet.

To let go, oh but to let go, and lose now forever this constant pain.

Or to press on with my eye on the prize held close in the heart of faith?

Pushing…pushing a huge stone up a hill so steep.


Choices to make as I continue to make my way.

Let go of the weight and leave, or hold on and stay.

Yet the winding path becomes steeper each and every day.

The stone becomes heavier, more burdensome in ever increasing weight.

Pushing…pushing a huge stone up a hill so steep.


I then awaken, eyes filled with tears.

my heart rapidly beating with a surreal fear.

Small beads of sweat moistened my brow.

 I reflected upon a midnight dream…

And found the withal to keep pressing on for now.

Pushing…pushing a huge stone up a hill so steep.



·        Note


Sometimes dreams mean nothing, but ever so often they reflect an event, or events in life. Mine is being with the dealing of cancer within my body and the mental anguish associated with it in light of my past dealings with it.


 I believe if we listen to those dreams and discern them, then we can learn from them. Sometimes God speaks to us in many ways. It can be through His song in our heart…the whispering wind in the trees, or even through a dream. After all He does say, “Be still and know I’m God”.  Therefore upon this midnight dream…I am to press on with my eye fixed on the prize.

Soul melting words that touched my heart! Yes, press on with your eyes fixed on the prize, claiming at all times that YOU will win the victory, not the roaring lion who seeks to destroy you! You are in my thoughts and prayers, Allen. God bless you. Joy L. Hale

This is very telling, my Bubba.. and dreams are definitely from GOD for all Believers.

Your task is monumental.. pressing against all odds, to never lose your faith, and to continue to be resolved for a good outcome.

The enemy WANTS you to dwell on and believe all worst possible scenarios.. you CANNOT be filled with doubt and faith at the same time. They are incompatible!

You know what the Good Book says, Bubba.. "CHOOSE this day, whom you will SERVE" (believe; trust; invest your time, energy and finances, etc)

I pray you receive the strength of the Tree of Life!

GOD bless you and keep your mind under His authroity.
Love you, Bubba As Ever, Sis
PS> Still waiting for the specific prayer request ????

What makes you think that that big boulder wants to be UP the mountain, maybe it wants to be at the bottom, let it make up its own mind...
