Terrorist Nightmare



The artwork above is my own


I had this nightmare that I was in a foreign country and I was staying at this hotel. In the beginning, I reached this high wooden pier, at least a hundred feet high, with water below. I was told it was at least 500 feet deep which was to say if I fell, as I feared, I would die.

While there, I learned that the hotel had been taken over by soldiers from another country. They planned to fill the building with tear gas, unless we were out of the building by a certain time. I ran behind others, who scrambled to make it in time. I leapt entire flights of stairs while still holding the guard rail. Somehow, I found this amazing and...possible?

Just as we ran into the lobby, a few soldiers tried to stop them. A few made it past and exited, but others, including myself, couldn't. One held a gun to my chin, by the way. In this dream I am a different woman, looking to be of Persian or Egyptian descent? I told him, as he held the gun to me, that I would pray God would have mercy on him.

A few moments later, he lets go, but forces me to stay in the building with the rest.

I realized after waking that at the time, I took this dream to be real and that this is exactly how I would react to a terrorist in real life.  I would pray for my murderer with my dying breath.

All Glory, Praise, Thanks and all things be to almighty God on the highest forever and ever in Jesus name, amen. God is able to do above all we ask or think!
