2 nights ago, I had another dream about a tornado.  My husband, I and our two daughters were driving to church.  We knew a bad storm was coming because we heard about it on the radio.  As we were driving, I noticed from a far a tornado developing and another one coming directly at us.  Hoping that my husband could possible beat it, I screamed go, go! He went as fast as he could, but the tornado was way too fast. We got swept up in it.

As it snatched us into its stomach and swallowed us whole, I immediately closed my eyes and began to pray loudly in the car.  All I remember is being so wrapped-up in my prayer and allowing God to calm me and praying he did the same for my family.

The prayer request that stood out the most was me asking God to allow our fall to feel like we landed on a pillow.  I knew we would be thrown somewhere and we were!  But God honored my prayer and the fall felt just like we landed on a pillow.  We were not harmed and neither was our car.

The next day, I contemplated on the dream asking myself what God wanted me to get out of it.  I thought about how my (real) life has been pretty crazy right now and how I have lean so heavily on God during this time.  More than I have ever done in my life.

I realized at that moment that God wanted me to always keep my eyes on him. Despite this world-wind of life and all that is going on, he wants me to simply close my eyes and have Faith that he will honor all those things that he has promised. But most of all –  he hears me and sees me wherever I am and because of my Faith in him, he will always pull though for me.  Amen to that Good News!

Hallelujah, this really blessed me – just the fact that my daddy revealed himself to me in a dream about tornados (which I have always been fascinated with and fearful of at the same time since I was a kid).

I am loved!!!  Hallelujah, I am loved!!!!

Proverbs 8:17 – I love those who love me, and those who seek me find me.

Jeremiah 29:13 – You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart.
