I was in a big modern cabin. It somewhat resembled the cabin from the movie grown ups (I don’t know why) and it was kind of like the one we stayed in, in Tennessee. It was a mix. I was there with a lot of people, it was probably a group trip or something. I remember specifically Isabella, my Mom, and Dane were there. We were all in the cabin and everyone was going to go swimming at a lake around the corner. It was summertime, and the lake was big, but not huge. It was sunny and really nice out. Everything was surrounded by really tall trees. It was like we were in a clearing of the middle of the forest. There was also a walking pathway in the forest, it wasn’t creepy though. It was carved out and they put bridge material down to make the path obvious and it had railings on the side that you lean on. It was a brightly lit path because of the sun shining through the trees. It was beautiful, something I wish I could find in real life honestly. Everything was beautiful. From an aerial view of all of this You have the cabin in the center, the lake was in the southwest bottom corner, and the trail was in the southeast corner. It was like a little triangle. Back to the swimming, everyone was jumping in and having fun, I was sitting and relaxing in the grass watching everyone and Dane looked at me. For whatever reason, I looked at him sadly and got up and walked away. He got out of the lake and chased me down. I kept walking because I didn’t want to talk to him, but he got up to me and got in front of me. Our interaction was the following: Dane: Why is it that everytime I look at you, you look away from me, or you get up and leave I said nothing. My face was pained though. I don’t know what I was thinking or why I was “upset” with him. He noticed that, and he put his hand on my face to cradle it or something. I took a step backwards and moved my head to the other side. We were both completely silent. Then he pulled me in for a hug. It felt safe and he just held on. And for half of a second, I let my guard drop. I closed my eyes and decided that maybe it was ok to relax. There was nothing sexual about any of it. It just felt safe. BUT, my brain decided to ruin it, it only took half a second of dropping guard and my brain put the walls back up… I pulled out of the hug, just stared at him in the face, and turned my back and walked away to the cabin. The cabin was large, and complex apparently. I went into one of the bathrooms. It has tan walls and it was about the size of the one by Bella and Vanny’s room. You know how in a lot of bathrooms, they have those mirrors on the side of the wall that you can push on and it opens up to a shelf where you can put stuff on? There was one of those in there. Note: This is the part that really confuses me… I knew about something in there that I was trying to get too. It was behind the bathroom mirror. I looked at myself in the mirror and pushed on it. It opened up to another mirror. I pushed on that mirror and another one appeared, but that one fell off the wall and broke into a bunch of pieces on the floor. I didn’t get hurt, but I gasped when it happened. It definitely scared me. But, behind the one that broke, was another one. I pushed on that one, determined to find what I was looking for. I think it was a secret room behind all the mirrors, but I didn’t know there were multiple mirrors… I thought there was only one. So I am trying to get through all of these mirrors growing a little more agitated that I can’t get away. I get to the 5th mirror, I look at myself once more, and I push. Then I wake up.

The Modern Cabin: A Biblical Perspective on Relationships and Trust,
The dreamer finds themselves in a modern cabin, surrounded by loved ones and the beauty of nature. This setting represents a place of rest and relaxation, a safe haven from the chaos of the world. The presence of family and friends symbolizes the importance of community and relationships in our lives. However, the dream takes a turn when the dreamer’s trust is tested in their relationship with Dane. This can be interpreted as a reflection of the dreamer’s real-life struggles with trust and vulnerability in relationships.

The lake and forest in the dream represent the unknown and unpredictable aspects of life. The dreamer is hesitant to join in the fun and instead chooses to observe from a distance. This could indicate a fear of taking risks and opening up to others. Dane’s pursuit of the dreamer and their subsequent interaction reveals the underlying issue of trust. The dreamer’s reaction of pulling away and putting up walls is a defense mechanism, a result of past hurts and disappointments.

In the Bible, trust is a crucial aspect of relationships, both with God and with others. Proverbs 3:5-6 says, Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways submit to him, and he will make your paths straight. This verse reminds us to trust in God’s plan and not rely on our own understanding. Similarly, in relationships, we must trust in God’s guidance and not let our past experiences hinder our ability to trust and be vulnerable with others.

The dreamer’s brief moment of letting their guard down and feeling safe in Dane’s embrace represents the beauty of vulnerability and trust in relationships. However, the dreamer’s immediate reaction of pulling away and putting up walls again shows the struggle of maintaining that trust. This dream serves as a reminder to the dreamer to continue working on building trust and vulnerability in their relationships, with the guidance and strength of God.
