Am I Dreaming
Janae D Anthony


If only I would have taken the time to listen when the stranger walked up to me and said, "Would you except Jesus today Miss."
"I am late for work," I said, "I don't have time.
As I walked further on, another stranger came to me and said, "Miss, will you let Jesus save your soul."
"Not, now, I am late for work." I said running away from this person, only to be stopped by another.
"Mam would you like to donate something to feed the hungry," she said dangling a cup in front of my face.
Pushing her hand away, I said, "You need to be feeding me." Then I rushed off to my final destination, so lost in my own thoughts, that I didn't even see it coming.
Wow what a head rush, why is my head hurting so bad, could some one turn off the bright lights. My eyes went wandering, looking at the strange place I am in, they suddenly focus on a man that stood before me. I tried to move but couldn't. Who is this man, and why is he crying. He reached out his hand to me. Should I take it, should I scream, hoping someone would hear me. I reached for his hand and stood on my feet, the pain was gone. I looked at him, and he only pointed.
My eyes followed the direction he pointed, realizing I am standing looking up from my part of hell, at all the beauty that left me behind, that joy of life that was promised to me. My mind reflected back on my life…these words echoing in my ears.
"Which of you will come today and accept the living water of God."
"Which of you will come and be born of the spirit. Except Jesus today."
It was always the same thing at the close of every church service. In my mind I would always say next Sunday, I have time… I remember one Sunday mama would say "girl you better get out of that bed and give the Lord his day."
I would say "Mama can I stay home, I don't feel like going to church today."
She would look at me with tears in her eyes, and say;
"Honey, I'm not going to force you to take Jesus hand, I'm not going to force you to except his spirit, It will be your choice, but remember honey, Jesus love you."
She would kiss me on the forehead and walk out the door. The minute she was gone, I was jumping around to rock and roll music, enjoying my life, as if I didn't have a care at all in this world.
 I remember another time, when I was reading the bible, 'Everyone who eats my flesh and drink my blood is in me.' "yuk I thought, drink blood, eat flesh."
I read on, 'Jesus stands at the door and knock.' "Well I'm not answering," I remember laughing.
As I looked back at the man who was standing there, I beheld the beauty of the Lord, and all his glory, standing as a man does when he is ready to propose to his wife. I could only bow my head in shame, because I didn't take the time to say "I Do Lord, I Do" I looked toward His kingdom, which was filled with the glory of God, and glowed like a precious gem. I turned and looked the other way, there I saw what appeared to be darkness, with a red glow, pearl drops of fire danced in the air. I quickly turned and looked back towards the Lord who now stood with tears in his eyes. I finally knew my fate, I kept looking from one place to the other, wondering where did I go wrong, frantic is what I became, I started pleading to my Lord, but I knew all my tomorrows were to late, I could have looked upon His beauty forever, but I knew, after looking at the darkness that I am doomed to the hell I created for myself, Why, O my dear Jesus, Why," I heard myself scream out." I accepted you,"
He turned his back on me and walked away with tears in his eyes.
"Jesus, I cried out, Jesus don't leave me." I felt my body began to shake, fear came over me, the only thing I could think about was that dark place, I don't want to go there.
 "Noooo Jesus I screamed out once again."
Only to be waken by my mother. "Girl you better get out of that bed and give the Lord his day"
I jumped up, "Mama, Mama," I hugged her, please mama please"
"what's the matter baby, "she said
"Mama please take me to Jesus."
