So I had this dream 2 nights ago.
I was back in college and I had to ride my bike to classes. But then my tires on my bike got bent and so then I was walking through this busy city street coming to an intersection. There were people all around me.
I had heard that there was going to be a demonstration by a white suprematist group, but was only concerned about getting to and from my classes on time.
Suddenly as I was about to cross the intersection I saw the group spread out into the crowd. They were dressed in all white, but didn’t cover their faces like Klu Klux Klan members. Instead their faces wore looks of anger and intimidation. I tried not walk and not look at them, everyone continued to walk but was totally silent. I had initially glanced at one of them and could feel his intimidating , and angry stare follow me.
Suddenly I heard the voice of God speak to me. He said, “Sing.”
I was like, “What? What do I sing Lord?” He said, “Just sing something.” So I started singing the first thing that popped into my head.
“Jesus love the little children. All the children of the world. Red and yellow, black and white, they are precious in His sight. Jesus loves the little children of the world.” And I kept singing that.
Suddenly everyone around me started singing too. Everyone on the street started singing together and the ones that had come to intimidate were stopped in their tracks, and there was great power and beauty in everyone singing together. Because the song was so profoundly true. I was in awe, because it was just the perfect song. It was just so simply true.
Then I woke up. What an amazing song. What the world needs now, is a song. A song of love.
