I thought I would dust off a relatively old dream this morning. It dates way back to January 6th of this year, which in political terms, is the dinosaur days of the current presidential race. This was right after the Iowa caucuses, but before the first Republican primaries began in earnest. At that time, we did not know who the Republican nominee would be. Here is the dream:
Mitt Romney was at an event, trying to get to the second floor, but needed to figure out how to get up the secret elevator. He finally did, but it was cobwebby and dark. He got to the top and went to meet in a room with some small business people.
First, a disclaimer, I didn’t really care much for Mitt Romney during the primaries. I certainly believed he was a good businessman with some wonderful virtues, but I was more focused on the Christian candidates. So I really didn’t appreciate this dream back on January 6th. Whatever else it meant, I knew that it included the fact that Mitt was going to be the Republican nominee. I didn’t embrace this; in fact I did my best to forget it all through the primary season as I looked at one candidate, and then another. But finally, inexorably, Mitt found the secret elevator. It wasn’t pretty. It wasn’t glamorous, but he won the nomination and is now the Republican presidential nominee.
I’ve been thinking about this dream lately. I’m wondering if it refers to more than winning the Republican nomination. Back in January I was focused on the Republican primaries. Along with the rest of the nation, I wanted to find out who would step forward from the Republican field to win the nomination and run for president. Because of this, I could not see beyond the primaries in my interpretation. However, it could indicate that Mitt Romney will win in November.
The thing I’ve been chewing on lately is what it means for Mitt to make it to the second floor. I have assumed that the second floor was the party’s nomination, however, I have begun to question that interpretation. Mitt Romney was the governor of Massachusetts. He was the chief executive of one of our fifty states. I don’t think that winning a party’s nomination is reaching the second floor when one has been the chief executive of one of our fifty states. All that winning a nomination does, is allow you to campaign for the presidency. It is grueling and difficult (cobwebby and dark). I don’t believe just winning the nomination is making it to the second floor when one has been a governor. The next step, the next floor for any governor, is that of being chief executive of the United States.
So while I am not prophesying that Mitt Romney will win in November, I am intrigued by this dream. I believe, if I am understanding it correctly, that it may indicate that he will. If he does, it will be because small business has rallied around him (the job makers in our economy). It will also be because the prayer of the righteous is powerful and effective.
