It was dream of chaos. How else could I describe it? Water, clear water; inside which I was being rolled and turned at high speeds. I could see nothing but the opaque light that shines through turbulent clear waters. I was unable to think or to feel anything but only of the present experience. There was no recall of better times and no planning for the future; I was consumed inside this water, this clear water.
When at last the turbulence stopped, I was in a place that seemed to be surrounded by clear water, a wide open space of water; and in fact it seemed to be that I was walking in some water, perhaps ankle deep. I could see other people but they were far away. I awakened and was unsettled by the experience but realizing it to be a dream and being tired, I went to sleep, and again dreamed about the clear water.
The second time the dream went further in that I found myself with a group of women, I thought they were teachers of some kind, or maybe those who would evaluate me, they did not seem especially friendly. I had a wheelchair that belonged to me, it had a pillow in it, but I did not use it, I was walking; however, the wheel chair was mine, and I felt a responsibility to keep it out of the way of others.
The women seemed hesitant to embrace me but seemingly of duty allowed me to sit at the end of a table by myself. The positioning of the tables placed me looking at the other table, facing the other table sitters. A woman to my right, who sat against the wall said, "Okay Ramona," as if to say, "Get on with what you have to say."
Upon awaking this time I realized that I had been encapsulated within a 'sphere' that rolled about in that turbulent water. I was safe all the time but not feeling safe.
Thoughts began to come to my mind about how we are safe in the Lord and in the power of His Name. He promises that, " The Angel of the Lord encamps around about them that fear Him and He delivers them." Psalm 34:7
I thought how all things are in fact, IN the Spirit/spirit. There is nothing in this world that is only of this world, it is all entwined with the world of the Spirit/spirit, and our actions are the reflection of the spirit, or Spirit, OF which we are OF.
Thoughts of how, that when we call out to Jesus, He is our Safety, whether we feel safe or do not feel safe. I was understanding that God promises to protect us, and even if we must endure the rages of the troubled waters, we are safe when we call upon the Name of Jesus. It is His Promise to us.
It is not easy though to know you are safe in the raging storm, unless you have embraced the fact of it ahead of time. It is a way of life: PREPARE.
Prepare NOW. "All who call upon the Name of the Lord, shall be saved." Acts 2:21 and Romans 10:13
