Dreaming with Joseph


That dreamer Joseph
Dreamed sheaves of grain bowing
Dreamed sun, moon, stars kneeling
Dreamed his brothers’ worship
Dreamed himself into a pit
Into slavery
Into Egypt
Into prison
Into Pharaoh’s palace.
That dreamer Joseph
Dreamed deliverance for all Egypt
And his people.

This dreamer Joseph
Dreamed an angel speaking
Dreamed Mary, his virgin bride
Dreamed Jesus, the Spirit’s son
Dreamed the child into Egypt
Into hiding
Into safety
Into Galilee
Into destiny.
This dreamer Joseph
Dreamed salvation for his people
And all the world.

 [That Joseph:  Genesis 37, 39 - 50;
This Joseph:  Matthew 1:18 - 2:23]
