Dream 1 of 3


dreamed that my mother (Maisie) and I were on a line at a fast food chain. I had a coupon for a discount. A woman was in need and so I gave her the coupon without much thought. After a while, she had paid for her meal and I began to think about what I had done. I started to feel that my decision was not wise because then I was not going to be able to use the coupon for myself. I began to become resentful.

The woman who had received the coupon who was ahead of us in line I saw when her order was rung up and the cash machine registered .44 in red numbers. At this point I had a vivid thought in the dream—creation with increase.

She came back. She told me that she let the cashier know to use the balance on my order. I had saw the .44 and did not believe I would get much of a discount for she had used the bulk of the coupon.

My mother placed her order. The cashier said to her, “I want to make sure you get the most from your order.” She then packed 2 burgers, 2 fries, 2 shakes on my mother’s tray. My mother only ordered for herself. I then told my mother that I would just take one of her French fries because that is all I wanted.

My mother had gotten double of everything even though she ordered only one thing.



Child of Light

Child of Light

The meaning of this name is Child of light, pearl, wished for child, rebellion, bitter. It is a nickname for Margaret or Marjorie. Maisie come from Hebrew origin wished-for child. Famous bearers of the name are for Miriam and Mary Jesus’ mother, Mary Magdalene the root of their name means “their rebellion.”

The Number 4

The number 4 represents creation. It reflects the creative works of God. For on the fourth day the material creation was finished according to E.W. Bullinger. It is the number that represents material completeness or a world number.

The Number 2

According to E.W. Bullinger the number, two means difference (as in the two covenants), another (something different), division (as in the Lord separating night from day), and the second thing (what comes after the first).

It also means double or increase as in what Elisha asked Elijah for in 2 Kings 2:9.

And it came to pass, when they were gone over, that Elijah said unto Elisha, Ask what I shall do for thee, before I be taken away from thee. And Elisha said, I pray thee, let a double portion of thy spirit be upon me.

Likewise, in the dream the number 2 represents something different from the norm. When you place your order in a restaurant you usually only receive one order not double. In the dream, the balance of the coupon Michelle invested opened the way for Maisie to receive a double, which also blessed Michelle as well.

Fast Food Restaurant


Fast (junk) food: Wrong doctrine, not doctrinally sound, convenient food.

Restaurant: heart, church, communion and fellowship, heaven, confidence of someone.

*Above meanings are from The Divinity Code by Adam F. Thompson and Adrian Beale.

When they are put together, it is a place of communication and fellowship where one receives food. This was a convenient meal for both the woman and for us. She was fed on two levels—spiritually and physically. The coupon blessed her—, which she received freely. And she got the meal, which she invested her money and time in to receive. Time because she stood on line. Money because she paid for the meal. Therefore, in a sense she put in the work and the investment to get the physical food. But for the coupon, she did not ask for it, it was just given to her because she had a need.

Heal the sick, cleanse the lepers, raise the dead, cast out devils: freely ye have received, freely give. Matthew 10:8

In the beginning, I gave the coupon without any negative feelings but with a spirit of generosity. That was a sound act. I gave her what she needed. Similar to giving the of physical food which would benefit her body if she were starving, giving her shelter if she was homeless, or telling her of Christ if she were dying in her sins, or visiting her in the hospital and anointing her with oil if she was locked in the prison of her body due to disease.

Then I started to change my view. My feelings and emotions changed about it. It began to become corrupted. It started to turn into the wrong doctrine—one of self and selfishness. It was not a message of Christ. At its root was the notion that if I help her I am robbing or shortchanging myself.

I however, did not ask for the coupon back. Nor did I start to grumble to my mother—the child of light who was with me. But the seed was there and it could have blossomed into something more. Still could if not properly addressed.

Waiting on Line

I was waiting on line for my turn to be served to get what I wanted. I did not get to give my order but I was blessed through the child of light. I made the initial investment but the blessing went to the one who stood firm in the light of Christ. Maisie was not corrupted. She did not utter a word except to place her order. Therefore, her meal represented the uncorrupted portion that we will receive from the Lord when we stand firm and upright in the totality of our being.

She received double without asking for it or expecting it. The investment that we make will reap great rewards when we stand erect before God.

Significance of Mother and Daughter

The significance here is the training that an offspring gets from its parent. Maisie represents the child of light whose life is patterned after that of Christ. Therefore, we are to follow his nature and his lead. We are to be groomed in his ways and reflect his character inwardly and outwardly.

I believe that I was going through a test where I was given an opportunity to work this out in myself and for myself under the supervision of God. There were options available to me.

  1. I could have asked for the coupon back
  2. I could have started to grumble to my mom and complain that it was not fair
  3. I could have made a fuss with the cashier
  4. I could remain silent
  5. I could have started to regret and become bitter over blessing her with the coupon

I thought it was not fair but I remained silent. This was an act of resistance.

Submit yourselves therefore to God. Resist the devil, and he will flee from you. James 4:7

I resisted the devil and so I was able to partake in the double blessing that my mother received.

I could have openly spoken to the devil but it would not have been the right time or place to do so—on a line at a restaurant. This shows that there was an element of discernment at play. Being able to rightly discern the time, place, season, and proper action is the work of the spirit of Wisdom.

Therefore, it is evident that Michelle, the one “who is like God”, gift from God, or close to God possessed a wisdom after the likeness of God which was being fashioned and the corruption in it was being exposed by the Child of light (Maisie).

French Fries


French fries are that which clogs the arteries, the flesh.

*Above meanings are from The Divinity Code by Adam F. Thompson and Adrian Beale.

For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. Galatians 6:8

In the natural French fries are harmful to us. It is as eating food given up to idols for those whose conscience is weak thus becomes defiled.

Howbeit there is not in every man that knowledge: for some with conscience of the idol unto this hour eat it as a thing offered unto an idol; and their conscience being weak is defiled. But meat commendeth us not to God: for neither, if we eat, are we the better; neither, if we eat not, are we the worse.  1 Corinthians 8:7-8

There is only one God and when he blesses food, the harmful effects of the flesh and worldly conventions are neutralized. This does not mean we should feast on junk food. But if we do we are to partake by faith and in balance with the spirit of God and with our conscious active and alert in the Lord.

As concerning therefore the eating of those things that are offered in sacrifice unto idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world, and that there is none other God but one. 1 Corinthians 8:4

On a spiritual level, we are to be wise how we allow our flesh to dictate or influence our reactions. We should be aware for the corrupting impact that our flesh can exert over our spiritual growth and advancement in the Lord.

Not all fleshly things are corrupting but not all are of benefit. This is why we need to discern what is good and beneficial for us long-term.

All things are lawful for me, but all things are not expedient: all things are lawful for me, but all things edify not. 1 Corinthians 10:23

Implications for Believers

Each of us is in training. We are learning how to be children of light after the likeness of Christ. As we continue in the way of God, eating the food he provides and doing what Christ would do with the right attitude and disposition we will become brighter lights. Thus moving from glory to glory.

But we all, with open face beholding as in a glass the glory of the Lord, are changed into the same image from glory to glory, even as by the Spirit of the Lord. 2 Corinthians 3:18

Each of us is online in a sense waiting for our time to receive from the Lord. But what we reap is linked to what and how we sow.

But this I say, He which soweth sparingly shall reap also sparingly; and he which soweth bountifully shall reap also bountifully. 2 Corinthians 9:6

God is able to tell which thoughts are our own and which ones come from the enemy. If we resist the temptation of the enemy, we will reap well. But if we allow the enemy to corrupt us with perverse doctrine of self, selfishness, bitterness, resentment, deception, falsehood etc. then we will not reap well before the Lord.

Awesome! I really like the way you explain dreams and enlighten us on their meanings. God is indeed a wonderful savior.
