Dream 333 – Jesus’ Vessels are more than half of the time to completion

Communion

Dear Father,

Thank You for a wonderful last three days with my family!  We had a fun weekend.  I know it makes You happy when we find joy, so we are working on this despite our looming circumstances.  Running a ‘tight ship’ is draining.  It seems that there are three times as many ‘sorry, this isn’t possible right now’ to ‘sure, we can do that’.  Still, we thank You, Father, for You have sustained us and not abandoned us.

I worry less about the faith of my husband and me versus that of our children’s faith since we are more seasoned to the times of struggles than they are.  For example, I grew up hearing about money troubles on a daily basis.  Everything was difficult back then.  For us, a ‘splurge’ was just having meat during our meal.  Now it seems as if even fruits and vegetables have become expensive enough to also be a ‘splurge’.

In response, I am hoping to start a small garden soon.  There was a frost a couple of days ago here, so I am praying I can begin in the next couple of weeks.  Sigh…another summer looms and even more uncertainty.  I finally received a phone call from a large hospital in Seattle.  If nothing changes soon, I will be seen at the end of July by two different specialists.  There had been a mistake in my processing, so I lost several months before I was placed on the appointment list.

Of course, this too was yet another divine delay.  After all, it has now been over five years since my accident and no surgeries, not one, even though I need several and have done nothing ‘on my own’ to avoid them.  I am sure that there are so many people out there just like me that are waiting without any real alternatives.  While I know this divine delay has been a part of Your amazing plan, it has still been difficult for me.

In the meantime, and for the very first time, I have been able to be a mom and wife full time.  Oh yes…and a child of God in thankfulness.  This injury gave me time to do things I never had the chance to do before, but had always wanted to.  It has not been easy though.  My health has deteriorated rapidly, especially in the last year, and new problems have risen.  It seems the world around me progresses while I seem to digress.

Thank You, Father, as my saving grace has been Your love.  You care for me daily and show me Your love in infinite different ways.  I have had time to pause and think about all that You have done around me.  You have sent animals to keep me smiling.  You have sent new birds to our feeders.  You have sent eagles in the sky above our home.  You have sent strangers who smile and hold open a door.  You have sent beautiful sunrises full of colors.  You have even sent rainbow coronas around the rising sun.

At the setting of the sun at the end of the day, You then bring a perfect painting in the sky.  At nighttime, we can hear loons outside calling for its mate.  After a few minutes, we hear a distant answer.  After this, the two somehow then find each other.  However, and most of all, You have also sent friends, many here on the Nest, to write notes with encouraging words.  What a mysteriously wonderful Father You are, Lord!

Our household is beginning various fasts starting on Wednesday, May 22nd, 2019.  We will continue these fasts for forty days as our resources will soon be on ‘life support’ beginning just before the end of June 2019.  As such, we are believing and relying on You for a miracle.  We are looking for ‘The Open Door’!  We are looking for an uplifting miracle after experiencing around fourteen months of extreme difficulty and uncertainty.

That being said, this has also been a time of great miracles.  We have watched You work miracles, Father.  Still, we ask that You continue to protect us and hold us close.  In turn, I have watched the spiritual growth of our household rise.  My children have become more mature in You, Father.  None of us are perfect, but they are now a walking example of You in so many subtle ways.  What a gift!

Every time I reflect on all of this, I just become overwhelmed with gratitude.  Thank You, Lord…just thank You with all of my heart.  I continue to see Your signs and wonders as You call out to all of us.  You sometimes do this in such subtle ways, but not to those that are watching.  Take the recent Preakness horserace as just one example:

  • This was the 144th running of the Preakness
  • The winner was a three-year-old horse (born April 17th, 2016) named ‘War of Will’
  • His father (or sire) is named ‘War Front’
  • His mother (or dam) is named ‘Visions of Clarity’
  • An extremely rare event also occurred during this running – a horse finished the entire race without a jockey (he fell off at the opening gate)!

Lord, You are funny as this seems to be You speaking to the world in a subtle way, but in plain sight to those of us who are watching for You.  I am fascinated by horses and love them.  Lord, it is obvious by how You made them that You love horses too.  While I cannot ride horses in my current condition, I once loved doing this.  I just know that You will allow me to ride a horse again, perhaps even here on Earth.  Last night, I had several dreams.  One in particular stood out to me.

Sub-dream 1 “My Daughter finds a baby” description begins…

My daughters and I went to a distant city.  While I did not completely recognize the location of the area we were in, I believed the city to be San Francisco.  As I looked around, it appeared that half of the city was now in ruins.  This seemed to be caused by fires resulting from some huge explosions at some sort of an event.  Those who were misplaced as a result of this destruction seemed to have set up tent cities.

These tent cities were set up in the Golden Gate Park, the Lincoln Park and the Presidio.  I found this strange as most of the park facilities had also been destroyed.  As I looked out from this devastated area, I saw that several massive iconic cathedrals were either burning or were still smoking.  I walked a while to one of these burnt out cathedrals before going over to a man standing next to one.

Me:  “Could you please tell me what has happened here?”

Man:  Looking at me like I was crazy.  “Seriously, Lady?  Look around you!”

I looked over to where he was pointing and I saw charred human bodies in a park area.  It seemed as if most of them had their clothes completely burned off.  I had the sense that whatever had occurred here was very dark.  I went over to a woman that was crying over one of the dead bodies.

Me:  “Could you please tell me what happened here?”

Woman:  Barely able to speak.  “They burned the churches and stripped them naked.  No one would help them because they wouldn’t help us.”

While I still did not fully understand all that happened, I suddenly realized, thanks to the Holy Spirit, that a devastating event first occurred and then churches were destroyed and people killed in retaliation for them being perceived as not doing enough after this devastating event occurred.  As I was shaking my head at all of the destruction, I heard the sound of footsteps.  I looked over and my older daughter was there holding a baby.

Me:  “Whose baby is this?”

Daughter:  “Someone left it here to die.  However, God has called me to care for it.  He told me where we are to go next.”

We soon arrived at a home far away from these devastated areas.  The house seemed to be a combination of three homes that I have previously lived in.  It appeared that we were somehow now somewhere in Oregon, but I was not sure.  Soon after arriving, we went out to get supplies for the baby, including bedding, diapers and other items.  We then brought them to the home and waited for the rest of our family to arrive.

At one point, I had walked to the other end of the home.  It was open to the elements.  In this area, there were many tiny animals that had come for shelter.  In addition to caring for the baby, we decided to care for these animals as well.  We soon realized that, even though predators were still lurking and waiting for our ‘guests’ outside, they were unable to enter this part of the house.

Sub-dream 1 description over…

Father, this is the second time I have seen (possibly, if not likely) San Francisco in ruins in my dreams.  I do not understand what this means.

Jesus:  “Erin, come up.”

I was once again on God’s overlook gazing across the breathtaking Valley of God.  The contrast of my ‘smallness’ to the huge God-sized abundance of spring here was obvious.  I looked around and saw massive blossoming flowers and vines, perfect landscaping and other natural growth, all of which were perfectly in order.  There were no weeds here to choke out the precious life of tender stalks and buds.

There were beautiful birds, butterflies and incredible combinations of these.  This combination is hard to describe other than to note they were stunning, hardy and with beautiful songs.  I could hear the sounds of water pouring from a spring nearby.  I heard chirping and singing birds taking a bath.  It was as if they had no fear of anything here…and they didn’t.  They were happy and confident.

As I looked over and studied these curious creatures, I felt a nudge on my arm.  I looked behind me and there before me was the massive eagle again.  I reached over and hugged him.  He spread his wings and motioned for me to climb on his back.  I did and we soon took off over the valley.  I had no fear, none at all.  When you are in Heaven, you have no fear at all, only a healthy ‘fear’ and respect that one should always have for God and His Son.  The eagle circled and soared over the valley pastures.

I looked down and saw Jesus and the angels busy again at the river.  Jesus looked up at me and waved.  I was so excited to see Him again.  The eagle soon landed on a massive rock.  After giving the eagle a hug, he flew away.  There were steps leading down from the large rock we had landed on.  As I circled down the steps, I could see that there were still vessels sitting there waiting to be filled.  I was disappointed.  Jesus stood at the base of the rock smiling at me.  I leapt into His arms and hugged Him.

Jesus:  Laughing.  “I am glad you came!”

Me:  “I am glad You called!”

Jesus:  “I see you have been busy.”

Me:  “No, Lord.  As You know, I could be much busier.”

Jesus:  “You are disappointed.  I could see your thoughts.  Remember, I know you.”

Me:  “Forgive me, Lord, as You know what is best for all of us and I don’t want to…”  I began to cry.  I sat at the base of the rock and began to weep.  “The world is becoming worse, Lord, and so much so quickly.  I was just discouraged.  I had hoped for the vessels to be completed.  Please forgive me.”

Jesus:  “I am pleased you are keeping up your hope.  While this will still take a little longer, just know that we are more than half of the time to completion.  These are all done with special care, Erin.  Not only have I created these vessels, but I have filled them each with different wine and then My Seal.  An angel cannot do that which God, My Father, has commanded Me to do.

“With each one, great care is taken.  This has been foretold in My Word and planned since the beginning of time.  This cannot be rushed.  We will be finished on ‘the perfect day’.  I know you are discouraged.  If I stopped, then these…”  He pointed to the vessels lining the bank of the River of Life.  “…would no longer be part of what God has planned since the beginning.”

Me:  “I am sorry, Lord.  Please forgive me.”

Jesus:  Smiling.  “You are forgiven.  Now, I know you are worried and uncertain of the future.  However, do not be.  I have you.  Do you trust Me with your life?”

Me:  “Of course, Lord, of course.  It’s just that…well…I am scared.  I don’t want you to be angry about my worrying ways, even though I am anxious.  What if I misunderstood You?  What if I wrote down something wrong?  What if…”

Jesus:  “Hmm…well, Erin, then I have you right where I have called you to be.  I did not call you in perfection.  I called you in complete imperfection.  I could then use you to write as you surrendered yourself to Me for My purposes.  I chose you.  You did not choose Me.  I knew what I was doing.

“I am not waiting until you arrive here only to completely destroy you in anger.  I am not volatile.  I do not move up and down like the waves in the ocean.  Listen, when have you ever been scared of Me when you have been here with Me?”

Me:  “Not once, Lord!  Of course not!  Although I am pretty sure that You have been irritated with me at times.”

Jesus:  “No, Erin, I have not.  You have misspoken of Me.”

Me:  Crying.  “Perhaps it is just that I am now even irritating myself.  Oh Lord, perhaps it is just that I have grown tired of my position.  I tire of my inability to be in full faith all of the time.”

Jesus:  “You are a vessel of God…My vessel.  I will not break you.  I took care in creating you.  I made you to stand.  You were made in My image.  You are wonderfully made.  You have given your life over for My purposes.  Therefore, trust Me with you.  Trust Me with what I have given to you and whom I have sent to be with you.

“I love you, Erin.  I have made you perfect in My eyes.  My love is unconditional.  There is a reason you have endured all that you have.  There is a reason I have sent those into your life to help.  See, all of these vessels are special.  Each one is handcrafted by Me.  These are soon to be completed as well.  However, there is an order to all of this.”

Me:  “Lord, the trees are blossoming here.  Summer is soon to come.”

Jesus:  “I know, Erin.  You know by the signs that you are right.  Take heart just a little longer.  Be patient with God that His timing is perfect…”  He laughed good naturedly as He then splashed some water on me.  “…and I will then be patient with you.”

Me:  “I am sorry, Lord.  Please be patient with me.”

Jesus:  “Erin, breathe deeply the rarified air of Heaven.  Remember this because this is where your Home is.  Nations will be shaken.  Things will be in an uproar.  However, you will not be shaken because I am with you.  Now, take heart, for I have overcome the world, understand?”

He smiled as He reached over and hugged me.  I felt such peace and to such a degree as to be indescribable.  If only everyone knew what this felt like on Earth, every single person would be a devout follower of the Master of the Universe and the Lover of our souls.  Even in our smallness, He loves us so.

Jesus:  “Erin, I will send help for you.  Do not worry.  I have you.  I know what you have, including how many loaves and how many fish.  Now, give Me your basket.  Trust Me to multiply all you have so you will have even more left over.”  He smiled.  “Now, rejoice, Erin, for I have heard your cries and I will bless you.”
