Hi everyone,

Do you ever find yourself dreaming about

what you wish for in the future? Do you

remember your dreams when you wake up?

Our story this month comes from the Old Testament.

This is the part of our Bible which tells the stories of

God’s people, the Israelites, before the time of Jesus.

One of the books there, the book of Joel, says:

“God said, I will give my Spirit to everyone. Your sons

and your daughters will look to the future, your old

men will dream dreams, and your young men will

see visions.”


The story on these pages this month is the

very famous one about Joseph. You may

already know this story as ‘Joseph and

the amazing technicolour dreamcoat’. This

time we are thinking especially about the

part of the story where Joseph had dreams

about the future.


Joseph’s dreams were strange, but he learned

how to work out what the dreams meant.

Over time Joseph became wise and, guided

by God, was able to plan for the future. He also realised that things were not always going to be easy for him, but he trusted God through all the ups and downs in his life.


I wonder what you dream of?


The videos on this page tell the first part of Joseph’s story, the links on the next

page are about dreams! Enjoy!
