Last night I had a dream about being in a house. There was a wide variety of people in this house. There were friends, coworkers, neighbors, family, strangers and more all together in one house. We ate, walked, talked and even did a dancing and singing number. But eventually everyone went back to work. This seemed symbolic of the end of covid when we all go back to living our lives and the time when I personally go back to work.
As the transition was happening a coworker came to me and told me it was time for work and we needed to leave right then. He walked out the door ahead of me and got in a box truck with a company logo and drove off. As I rounded the corner out of the garage I saw him drive away and I also saw the mess he left me. Two more box trucks were in the front yard stuck in the mud. It looked like one had tried to pull the other out and then whoever made the mess decided to just take off and let someone else handle it. Lucky me I was the someone else.
So I decided to see if I could just drive them out myself. I got my stuff and got in the first one because it was closest to the road. But before I even did anything the truck sank so deep in the mud that I could barely get out. It started to feel more like quicksand and I got my stuff and got out of there. This symbolizes the first opportunity I’ll run into as I get back to work. It isn’t going to work out well.
Once I get out and head to the other truck it’s a different story. As soon as I get in that seat I begin to see help arrive. A tow truck comes from in the house and a crew after that. Then more tow trucks come and they start teaming up on the both trucks. So I step out and let them work when I see a bunch of children playing. I tell then to step back out of the way and try to keep them safe from the equipment. Immediately one little girl that may have been my youngest daughter got into a trailer and it rolled across the street.
I took off chasing the trailer, it crashed into a tree in the yard across the street and I ran up and got the little girl. I carried her safely back to where the other children were and tried to corral them all into one spot. Of course, everyone looked at me as if I had caused all of the problems.
This is pretty much how leadership goes for me when I do it and I think it’s symbolic of me moving into a leadership position as a job. As soon as I do people who didn’t care before will try to lead in front of me, I’ll let them accomplish work because that’s what needs done. Then a bunch of disruptions will happen and everyone will blame me and think I suck as a leader as the work gets accomplished and I keep people safe and put out the fires. Leadership isn’t fun at all, I don’t know why people do it honestly. But that’s my next steps coming around the corner.
God is putting several of us into new and uncomfortable positions. It’s going to take some learning and getting used to and we are going to walk into a mess to try and fix it. You have been preparing for this for years and the time is here for you to step out of preparation and into your destiny. If that isn’t a smooth transition, don’t worry, it’s not supposed to be. Rely on God to get you through it and He will bless your work with good fruit. May you be fruitful and multiply for the Kingdom and may God bless all y’all.
