Hola! Como’ Estas?
When I was in high school we were required to take two years of a foreign language. Spanish was my choice. I enjoyed it so much that I actually took three years. Nowadays I don’t find much use for it since I live in a primarily English speaking community and surround myself with like-spoken people. However in the past couple years I’ve been to both Mexico and Puerto Rico and enjoyed rejuvenating the language of Espanol.
During our trip to Puerto Rico, my husband and I met a woman named Laticia. She worked at the resort we were staying at and over the coarse of our stay she quickly turned from an acquaintance to friend. So much so, that on the last full day of our trip she offered to take us around the island. The day included shopping, beaches, and authentic cuisine. She even took us to her home and showed us her lemon, orange, banana, and avocado trees. Oh, delicioso! My favorite part of the day though, was when she took me into a small music shop and bought me a CD of her favorite Puerto Rican musician. With love, she handed it to me and with her hand over her heart she said “You may not understand the language but you will feel it!”
If you know me very well you know that I’m captivated by dreams. Not the goal setting type(although those are great too) but rather the ones that come to you during your state of sleeping. I’m often inspired, perplexed, and have even been tested by them. It hasn’t always been this way but the Lord works in mysterious ways. For me, this is one of them!
In my previous entry I shared a very raw piece of my past but what I didn’t share with you is that several months prior to my final surrender to alcohol I received three very vivid dreams. Each of these dreams came exactly one week apart from each other. Sunday after consecutive Sunday they came. Although they played out differently the message was the same. Death.
Do you believe God can use dream language to speak to us? I certainly do! My forefathers, the pilgrims of my Christian faith have declared it throughout the pages of the Bible. I will be quick to note that this is not some pie in the sky subject matter. The language is real and like any other requires careful study. Initially you may not understand it but, with open hearts and minds, focused on the Lords guidance and protection you will feel it!
I will venture to say that you can expect more from me concerning the mysteries of God’s divine dream language and the impact it has in my life… so…until then…
