Sundays with Stassi: Forbidden LOVE -The Friend pt.2

For years prior I had been praying with my prayer partners about various life issues: finishing graduate school, finding a career, relocating to a nice, safe city (specifically a city with tall buildings and an airport LBVS), finding a church home, and characteristics of my husband. Those traits were very specific spiritual characteristics of a Godly Man. On the night of the dream I went to bed with a heavy heart about my relationship. While I was sleeping I began to have a dream. In that dream a voice called out each characteristic that I had previously prayed about. Every time a different characteristic was called out, the same name and face appeared…but it was NOT my current boyfriend. That was the moment I knew the answer to my prayers. That was the moment that I knew it wouldn’t work anymore. I woke up in tears because I knew that dream meant the end of that relationship…
We found ourselves both single and hanging out one day about 8 months after that dream. My “good friend” lived nearby. I wanted to tell him, but didn’t know how to confess that not only did my relationship end because of a dream that I had, but also that he was the person in that dream. Things were just too complicated. I mean he almost married one of my friends and acknowledging that dream meant breaking every girl code…every friend code imaginable. I couldn’t do that, but I couldn’t hide it either. We were always open and honest with each other so I knew it had to be said. I fear the consequence in that conversation because I really didn’t want to lose a dear friend. One day I casually told him that we needed to talk, but of course never really set a day or time for it to happen. Well, one evening we went to this big talking event in the city. I walked and it was dark by the time it finished so he drove me home. As we pulled up to my place, it was kind of late but I reminded him that we needed to talk. He immediately switched off the ignition and looked at me. I got completely nervous and pulled a wimpy move. I recalled all of the juicy parts of the dream, exactly how it occurred as if it happened only the night before instead of over 8 months earlier. I detached my seatbelt and reached for the door handle as he asked if I knew the person whose name and face repeatedly appeared in the dream.
I stepped out of the car.
I replied, “Yes, it was you.”
I closed the door and walked off into the night…
