Dreaming of God

Dreaming of God

”And he dreamed that there was a ladder[b] set up on the earth, the top of it reaching to heaven; and the angels of God were ascending and descending on it.” Genesis 28: 12

I enter a thin space,

alone, in my home,

alone, except for God.

In my reverie, I picture

angels climbing up and down:

Jacob’s dream ladder.

God’s omnipresence knows

my every thought

before I receive it;

for He is always within me.

I cannot live solely by human nature;

the Holy Spirit offers me

eternal life, eternal salvation.

I live among the peoples of the world;

yet my disappointment and fretfulness

I am assuaged by the knowledge

that when by body returns to the earth,

my soul will be reaped by God

into eternal being and deliverance.

My dream of God is absolute!
