I’m back in a dream season again and the good news is I’m remembering more of them. The bad news is some are corrective. Wait, that’s good news too, because God loves me enough to talk to me about my “stuff.” Thankfully, after I dealt with that I had subsequent encouraging dreams. One was interesting in that there was a big military jet that was hovering in the sky like a helicopter (if that doesn’t scream “supernatural” then nothing does!). I remember thinking that it shouldn’t be able to do that, lol. People were in lines waiting to get onto buses and planes and trains. I sensed it was a mustering of troops and they were being shipped out to the harvest fields! I joined a line and looked down and started finding jewelry. I think I found two necklaces with hearts on them and one had a diamond in the back. Someone asked how I would find the owners and I said I would advertise but not give all the information and the owner would have to give the missing part. I also found a gemstone in the grass. After that I had a dream that I was building a nest and was very happy when I realized it was a eagle’s nest :)
This morning I dreamed I saw an old friend (actually a second cousin). Her nickname is “Pickle” (although she spells it “Pickel”). Anyway she told me she may be getting separated/divorced and wanted to give me her address. I didn’t have anything to write it down on so she gave me her phone number (which doesn’t make sense, lol). Anyway the phone number was 746 “for school” (or 4 SCHOOL…472-4665). Then I woke up. I wrote the number down quick and later Googled it. Turns out it was a number in Mexico! After enough time had passed (because they are three or four hours behind!) I called and got a recording that the number was no longer in service. I thought maybe I’d talk to someone who was “in a pickle” and needed to hear that God saw what was going on. In case I missed that I also dialed the number in my area code and got the same recording. Then I decided to look up 7:46 and 74:6, which didn’t really turn up much. Lastly, I punched in 7:4-6 and got this:
So, my brothers and sisters, you also died to the law through the body of Christ, that you might belong to another, to him who was raised from the dead, in order that we might bear fruit for God. For when we were in the realm of the flesh, the sinful passions aroused by the law were at work in us, so that we bore fruit for death. But now, by dying to what once bound us, we have been released from the law so that we serve in the new way of the Spirit, and not in the old way of the written code.
That’s a good word :) I have been meditating on dying to self a lot lately, so perhaps this is the Spirit’s “new way” of telling me I’m ready “4 SCHOOL” and this will be the subject. I’m not sure, but in any event, He’s definitely got my attention!
In other news, yesterday my younger brother and I went down to dad’s old place and packed up his things in the garage (lots of tools and equipment) and downstairs. All of what was there was supposed to come back. Today when we took the truck to pick them up some things were missing. We didn’t make a big deal out of it (though dad wasn’t too pleased). Perhaps she didn’t think we would notice. There has been a lot of finger pointing lately and it’s hard to know who is telling the truth (let alone the fact that I’m not interesting in being the judge). I’m just trying to help dad start over and forgive, with an emphasis on the latter because without it the former will be sabotaged. Oh how we need Jesus!
