The dreams that I dream-28- Leaving a Church

Long back, early in our walk with the Lord, we happened to be worshipping in an Interdenominational Church. For 2 years, we really enjoyed the worship. Then came a time when some of the members of the Church started behaving in an inappropriate manner in their relationships with each other. Though this was very evident to all, they were not warned/stopped/forbidden in their indecency by the Pastor/elders. This brought great grief to me and my wife and we no longer could really worship the Lord wholeheartedly there.

Finally we asked the Lord whether we should continue worshipping there or leave the Church and let Him lead us elsewhere. In answer to this the Lord showed me a dream.

In the dream, I am examining a patient who is lying on the examination table. 2 of his toes on the right foot have been severed by an accident and they are just hanging on to the foot by thin strands of skin tissue. Immediately I call a surgeon to examine this case and ask him whether the 2 toes can be reattached by stitching them to the foot. But he replies in the negative saying that the wound was a bit old and deep and the toes could no longer be stitched back to the foot. The dream ended there.

The Holy Spirit here was indicating that the 2 toes (a figurative representation of me and my wife) were almost separated from the rest of the foot i.e. we were almost ready to leave the Church (just hanging onto the foot by thin strands of skin tissue). The surgeon opining that the toes cannot be stitched back indicated that our leaving the Church would be final and that there would be no return. The Lord has His own ways of speaking to us and this dream was just one of His ways.

Jesus loves us and wants to instruct us in every matter that concerns our lives. Most of the times He uses the Word to speak to us, but if there are specific matters that we would like to have His counsel, Hes always there to guide us if we wait for Him and seek Him diligently.
