I've had a hard time of it lately: I've been taking a summer course and I'm getting married in less than a month and I have some anxiety issues and the stress from everything lately has made it worse. In a desperate state of mind last night, I prayed to God after reading how he sent dreams to Joseph -- I know his situation was a lot more important than mine! I asked God to send me a dream that would show me what I needed to do to stop being such an anxious, sad, stressed person. It seems that when I pray awake, I'm not always open to God's voice, so I thought maybe I would be forced to listen if God sent me a dream while I was asleep. My reasoning was that maybe what God wanted to say to me was something I wouldn't like.I did dream last night. I had a horrible nightmare. It involved my fiancee cheating on me claiming that lots of good people cheat -- ridiculousness. I went into a desperate panic, realizing that I had to stop the wedding, but that I was more heartbroken than ever in my whole life. After waking up in a panic, I went back to sleep only to continue the same dream. What a horror! That hardly ever happens to me.So now, I am deeply disturbed and wondering if this horrible dream was from God. My fiancee is a very faithful man, and has never cheated on me. But it seems that I am always arguing with him lately, and I worry.It may be useful to add that I don't dream every night, but when I do it is usually a nightmare.What about you? How do you know if God has sent you a dream or if it is just a figment of your own imagination?
