Three dreams came to mind over the weekend. In all three, I was alone with the two grandchildren I am raising. At the time of the dreams or in all this time after, I never considered where everyone else was. After the dreams kept coming back to me, the questions came. Why were we alone? Where was everybody else?
I have, within the past few weeks, been living alone day and night for four or five days out of seven with these children. We live in the woods, so in those days we don’t see anybody much unless there is a package delivered on the porch or we go to the outside window of a pharmacy or restaurant.
These are the three dreams:
In March of 2016, I had a dream where I was driving over a bridge or dam and the clouds just came alive swirling around. Tornadoes came down all over the place. I knew we were going to be picked up. I looked toward the back seat to check on my young granddaughter that lives with me. She was very calm as she looked from the tornadoes to me. There was nothing but calm and peace on her face. We were picked up by the wind but it only lasted a minute before we were gently put back down again. I continued to drive forward when I came to the end of the bridge or dam and had to go left or right. Water like a raging river flooded the road I had to turn onto. I knew it would take our breath away for a minute but we would be alright. It took us on in and we floated along with the current. For something to be so horrific, we felt so at peace and so much love. No matter how the storm rages, we may see it with our eyes, but we won’t feel it with our hearts. Our faith will carry us through. God bless you Christian in your walk with the Lord. End of dream.
It was months later that I opened the bible to Isaiah 43:2 and was reminded of this dream. – When thou passest through the waters, I will be with thee; and through the rivers, they shall not overflow thee: when though walkest through the fire, thou shalt not be burned; neither shall the flame kindle upon thee. God will save us either from the fire and water or in it, but He will see us through.
Later I had a stroke and asked the Lord what He thought about it as I entered the ER. I opened a bible on the table to Isaiah 43:2. God is so good to us. He will never leave us nor forsake us in our hour of need.
On March 11, 2018, I dreamed I was walking with two grandchildren. We had left some people that were going to sleep. (There are many going to sleep these days.) We walked into a land that was something like Alice in Wonderland. We would meet creatures or see abandoned rides like in an abandoned theme park. The land was dark and dreary. There was no color anywhere, and nothing was as it seemed. We would see a light in an abandoned home and would be able to go in for food or rest, whatever we needed, then move on. Sometimes we would find a ride that was functioning and could get on it like a slide to go faster or something we could sit on to move quicker, and there would be another light in an abandoned home that we could go into, then move on again. There were others on rides but no one laughing. I would pick up trash here and there but there was no place to dispose of it, and nobody else cared or wanted to talk about it. It was as if they just rather ignore it.
I saw the grandchildren’s mother and she was trying to tell me something. She passed away years ago so I knew she wasn’t supposed to be there. Nothing there was real, except the light in the abandoned homes.
This land was full of deception and people I saw were like the old saying – Asleep. They just hadn’t laid down yet.
The children and I were separated a bit, but as I began to walk toward what I felt was the center of this place, I saw the children again. They were walking toward the center and there were a few others that made it. We were finally out of that dark and dreary place of deception.
When we got to the center, it was very colorful. We looked up as the sky changed. It appeared as if we were standing at the bottom of a pool and looking up to the sun beyond the water’s surface. There weren’t many of us gathered there, but I saw the lady in front of me as her arms left her side and flew upward, then she was gone. It was as if she were shot out of a cannon. Then a small person went up and the water or air made a swirl behind her in the shape of a heart. Someone close by yelled ‘that was one of the angels’! I believe they may have been speaking of the children but I don’t know. Then my arms left my side and flew upward, and I was gone. I felt myself going very fast, then I woke. I know we will meet Jesus in the clouds as scripture says.
On March 12, 2018, my dreams were all about rapture. One door would open and I would hear ‘almost home’. Another door would open and I would h0ear ‘catch away’. I dreamed all night of rapture but the only memory I have of that night were the doors and what I would hear as they opened.
I thought I had heard the phrase ‘catch away’ before but couldn’t remember. I looked it up to make sure it was biblical. I found it in Matthew 13, specifically 19-21. A commentary said that some may have started out as being an excited Christian and just fell asleep or abandoned it. Maybe the hardship or persecution was too much. The scripture explained the dreams.
The main thing for the body of Christ is to stand strong. I kept thinking when God’s children are gone, there will be no light left. The only light we have in us is the light of Jesus.
On April 15, I saw a comment about we are in the time of deception. This dream is symbolic of God’s protection and provision when we went into the lighted, abandoned homes. Because of that we made it through and persevered. Our ears and eyes were open to His leading and He led us out. He took us home. I’ve had more on that and have seen more on that so it’s being called to our attention. May God bless and keep you in all your ways as you lean on Him with hope, faith, and trust.

August 6, 2018
I had a dream after I went back to sleep at 4am this morning.
I heard alarms. They weren’t like the alarms we usually hear. I heard the storm coming outside, and I could hear it was tearing everything up.
I couldn’t see outside because the blinds were closed. The storm was so strong that it sucked everything out of the air. I wanted to look out and I was headed toward the window by my bed, but then was stopped, pulled back, and held down on the bed. I was sitting with my torso held chest down and my head down and turned to the side. I kept trying to get up to get everybody to safety. No matter how hard I tried or what I said, I couldn’t move. I finally stopped trying, and I knew to be quiet and still. It kept being brought to my attention that our youngest grandchild that we are raising was in the bed next to me. He was sound asleep, so I could only be still and hear the noise as I tried to figure out just how it must look outside and hoping it didn’t come in.
At first, I thought it was the storm holding me down. It was so powerful and so strong that I thought the evil in it had contained me. I woke so distressed and thinking ‘oh no, I wasn’t ready and I couldn’t help anybody’. Later in the morning that scene came back to me and a peace came over me and I knew it wasn’t the storm holding me down, it was God protecting me. He let me know the youngest grandchild was safe. If the youngest was safe, then the others in the house were safe. I believe this represented all God’s children that love Him so much being under His protection. He held me quiet and still. He wouldn’t even let me look out. Quiet was emphasized. He will be with us in the storm.
Isaiah 26:20 KJV
Come, my people, enter thou into thy chambers, and shut thy doors about thee: hide thyself as it were for a little moment, until the indignation be overpast. (end of scripture)
I had ‘felt’ it was the enemy holding me down. We have to not go by our feelings during this time, but by what we ‘know’.
Afterwards things had changed. Adults weren’t friendly toward me and they said things behind my back. Things felt different when I went around people standing together and talking. I could see a text one sent to another about me.
I saw a person that didn’t believe in the Bible. She was excited about a battery-operated light some were buying. It was a huge box shaped battery with an old fashioned light bulb on the bottom. The box would stick to the ceiling. I believe this represented a false light. People that don’t believe in the Bible will only be focused on the earthly light and the false light offered to them. They won’t realize there is a Light to protect us.
I turned on the radio after dropping the grandchildren off to school and heard an old country preacher say ‘gather the saints’. There was a song afterwards that said ‘not by my power’ and ‘count the world as loss’. I had never heard it before. After these dreams and visions, the Lord always points the way to answers.
Zechariah 4:6 was on my phone in the search engine when I tried to find a song with those words.
Then he answered and spake unto me, saying, this is the word of the Lord unto Zerubbabel, saying, not by might, nor by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.
We have no power over this storm, but we serve a mighty God that does.
I read where trying to act without God stems from the root of pride. I’m thankful when He crushes my pride. I fought pretty hard to handle things myself in that storm before I knew to stop.
I’m thankful for Psalm 91 today. We are no match for what the Bible tells us is coming but it lets us know our God is. Our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, will never leave us nor forsake us.
