I Dreamed about…
In the Bible we read about some of the many dreams people had, special visions which God sent them. Many of the people who received these dreams were people in leadership positions. Often these dreams troubled the minds of those receiving them, especially those who did not know the God who sent them.
Along with these dreams, God would send someone to tell the meaning of such dreams. Joseph interpreted the dreams of Pharaoh and his servants; and Daniel interpreted the dreams of Nebuchadnezzar.
With these dreams God was providing warnings about things to come or promises of good to happen.
But what about our dreams, does God still communicate through them? God certainly could still use dreams for his good purpose. But everything we need to know from and about God is already available to us in his recorded Word. Certainly, some dreams trouble our minds, we wake up and can’t get back to sleep because of the dream. But do those things come from God to perplex us?
I know one thing for sure. God is in control of everything and there is nothing that can take us out of his hand. He commands his angels to guard us and protect us. His promises surround us. His love provides for us and calms our troubled minds. He reminds us that we have nothing to fear because he is with us always and everywhere. He is going to bring us safely to our eternal home to praise and thank him forever.

New Faith Lutheran School t-shirts and sweatshirts have been designed. We are trying something new this year. You will order your items online, and pay online through CustomInk. You should have received an email last week with the links to the shirts and the sweatshirt. These items are optional for you to buy. If you would like to order but prefer not to do so online, please contact the office.
Practice continues on Tuesday and Thursday, 4:00 – 5:30pm at APU.
The printed booklets have been ordered and should arrive this week. You may start recruiting donations for your support to St. Jude’s. Our goal for this year is to raise $500 to support St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. The completed Math-A-Thon is due on November 4th due to the delay in receiving the booklets.
Please bring any BoxTops you have been collecting into school and place in the collection box or give to your teacher. The deadline for this submission is October 28th.
