Dream of Old Pastor

Post by Desiree (Starpop) on Thu May 28, 2009 6:04 pm

I remember being in this large gymnasium (the floor was shiny) and seeing my pastor from years ago there (I was saved at the age of 10 under his ministry; so this is where I received my foundational-biblical teachings). I also see this large white-colored truck near the center of the gym floor and my former pastor was sitting on the driver's side. I am just observing the truck from far away and wondering why he's just sitting there. He looked sad and didn't want anyone to come near him for advice (I knew this because everytime someone would come up to the driver's side window, he would shew them away). :huh: I haven't seen this man or his family in over 14 years.

Is this a call to pray for him?
Sounds like he is burnt out and thinking of quiting the ministry, but God has bigger plans for him.
You know I'm new, but thats what it sounds like to me.

I kinda felt like you should call him too, but I wasn't sure if that was me or not.
I remember Dwight Thompson came to our church and he was so burnt out that he was ready to give up, He stayed in our bosom for 3 months, that was in 94 and he is still going strong today.
I have a real heart for our preachers, If you think of the trash they have to deal with from the congregation its mind numbing.
God lift them up.
Theres a refreshing coming and its coming soon.

I'm in agreement with True Flight and Dreamster - I felt like he was discouraged/burned out. It is challenging being a pastor, from counseling people who remain stuck and don't heed your advice to being under intense scrutiny...without a good support system and steadfast faith, one can get discouraged easily. Over time, burn out can set in...

I thank you all for the responses.

I'm just trying to figure out if the pastor in the dream is him or representative of someone else? My dreams sometimes happen like that!

"stopped playing the game" makes sense Dreamster! I will definitely pray!

Maybe I should have the confidence to say, all that is on my heart in the first place.
