We are headed to visit our loved one who is on a journey to heal and to discover a new way of life. We are learning how to support her and so many people are praying for us. Last night I had a dream. If you know me well, you know I’m a dreamer like my dad. There are some dreams that I know are a result of the prayers of my circle and the “great cloud of witnesses” in heaven. Here is my dream to prepare my heart for today’s journey to North Carolina.
An incident in which my family was hurting occurred in a store. I went to the owner of the store who said I was too late and he could not help me. He began to get others involved and they smiled at me saying there is nothing you can do. I began to yell at them and advocate for my family. I told them that I would never give up on making this right and holding them accountable for their actions. They began to chase our family out of the store.
A woman appeared out of nowhere and pointed to a church down the road. Go there! You’ll be safe! We found comfort and peace in the midst of this full-gospel, colorful church, and they were bound together by the Spirit and love.
From there, we ran into the field only to discover we were surrounded by a large circle of people. A circle larger than a football field. My loved one was in the arms of an angel, and I began to run to her. The angel said to me, Fear not! I have her!” This angel was strong and radiated love. The angel was actually forbidding me to come. My dad came up behind me and held my shoulders. His presence there brought me comfort and confidence. He said, “Look, Anna, see all these people praying? Do you know that we are praying from heaven, too? Do you see?!” I looked around the circle and saw the faces of loved ones who had gone on to be with the Lord and my friends smiling, crying, hands lifted, and praying. I saw their faces as I know them to be in my mind. Many dreams you know it’s the person from how you feel in the dream, but this time I saw their expressions and knew who they were.
The Promise of His Presence and Healing
A great fire (the Holy Spirit) enflamed the center and the smoke of the fire raised to the heavens.
Thank you friends and family for praying for us. I see you.
Thank you God for giving me a bold dream that reminds me that you are taking care of our loved one. We will trust and believe through the darkest of times. This familiar song played this morning, and I wept in victory and worship!
