Running along a wavy sidewalk made of vertical cinder blocks of various widths. Thankfully, there was a black metal handrail on either side, albeit thin. As my sister and I continued running while gripping the rails, the earth shook violently, causing the blocks to give way under our feet. We persisted, however, following the precarious cinder block path along the side of a building and up to an elderly woman's home...
The lady was sitting on her front porch, smiling and seemingly unaware that the ground was crumbling to pieces beneath all of humanity. Strangely, my sister and I knew that if we could just make it into her house, we would be safe. And so, my sibling went first. However, just as I was climbing the last two steps to the entryway, the earth began to completely give way underneath me. I made one final leap and landed on my stomach on the threshold with half of my body dangling into the black abyss below. With my last bit of strength I clawed my way into the house and did not look back. I knew everything else was gone.

This is the dream I woke up from this morning. It's also the most vivid one I've had in a long time. The dream dictionary Curious Dreamer claims that earthquakes denote "a shake-up in your life, such as in your beliefs, finances, relationship, job, routine, etc." Dream Forth elaborates on this notion further by saying "If you dream that you find shelter from the earthquake, then you will succeed in rising above these difficulties."
Oddly, I was just thanking God last night because this chapter of my life (i.e., being in debt, living with my family, working at my current job, etc.) finally appears to be coming to a close and was rejoicing in what I anticipated to be wonderful changes ahead. Whether this dream was confirmation of my prayers or coincidence, it certainly made me think twice.
