Dream: Always a bridesmaid, never a bride


Bridesmaid and Bride

Bridesmaid and Bride

Last night I had vivid, colorful dreams. I love dreams and think they’re fascinating.

Sometimes dreams are just images or thoughts relating to past or present circumstances.

Sometimes they are just “pizza dreams.”

Dreams also can be a way for God to speak to us, as He did to Jacob about the angels on the ladder (Genesis 28: 12-13), Joseph about Pharoah’s dreams¬†(Genesis 37), a man in Gideon’s army about¬†Israel defeating the Midianites¬†(Judges 7), and Joseph the stepfather of Jesus being warned to take Mary and the baby to¬†safety (Matthew 2).

I believe my dream last night was from God. In the dream, I opened a door and there was a private wedding in the room, with the officiating minister, the groom and the bride, and just a few attendants. The groom and the bride were saying their vows. The bridesmaid was watching the bride sadly.

I then went over to the bridesmaid and spoke to her: “Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.”

I told her this is how she had always felt, but God wanted her to know that she would be married soon, that her Groom was coming.

I believe this dream is prophetic and symbolically means that our Groom, Jesus, is returning soon and to be ready, waiting for Him.

I also believe the dream represents how many people feel. Always a bridesmaid, never a bride.

Always watching from the sidelines.

Alone. Lonely. Not fitting in. Rejected. Hurting. Aching. Longing. Dreaming.

But God wants you to know you are not alone. He loves you so much. He has great plans for you. (Jeremiah 29:11)

You are His Beautiful Bride, the one He has chosen to be with Him forever.

All you have to do is say “Yes” to Him.

“If you confess with your mouth that Jesus is Lord and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved.” – Romans 10: 9, NLT
