I want to share with you all a dream I had from the Lord last year where I saw nothing but darkness, yet heard a dialogue between our Lord and someone unknown. This was right upon waking up from sleep but not fully awake yet..
I heard a man exclaiming out loud, “She is nothing…. NOTHING!” and he wasn’t referring to just me, but to all of us who have nothing to brag about before the Lord and are even basically just more a headache to God if we think about it.. yet He loves us all. This person in this dream kept on screaming to the Lord as though he knew better and could give advice to Jesus on what Jesus is wasting His time on or not.. (you should have heard his tone too.. it sounded like.. “get real Jesus.. I mean., c’mon, she is worthless.. what the heck are You thinking!”) Now the “She” this man was referring to in this dream was the Lord’s entire mystical Body of believers who are truly nothing in themselves apart from God.
Then I heard Jesus’s beautiful calm voice in reply to this person. “I build My Church out of nothing”. That left this person without anything else to say in response. And how our Lord spoke this is what I love about Him.. He is sooooo calm and collected♥ . I can visualize Him looking right into the eyes of the person who was challenging Him and not blinking an eyelash.
It is so true that our Lord cannot make us into His instruments when we have any allusions that we are anything of use. He can only use us when we come to the realization that we can’t be of any use .. then He can fill us with HIS strength, HIS power, HIS ability and desire.. and then we can be one of His little vessels…wether we are made out of crystal or dented aluminum. A crystal vessel without Him being poured out to others is totally useless. It’s Him inside of us that makes the difference., and His mystical Body- His Church, is made up of all those who have allowed Him to make them realize they are “nobodies” and even the genuine good within them comes from Him!
ps.. the picture of Jesus at the top of this post best portrays the expression He must have given the person screaming at Him in my dream when He replied to Him.
