The skies above had a very ominous darkness. I had some neighbors over at our house except I did not know any of those people though it felt like I knew them all. One seemed to be my grandma who had passed away long time ago. They were all scared. They wanted me to look out over the glass patio door and see what was going on above us. Bravely, upon hearing the strong force of winds, I looked out as I told them not to panic.
"4 forming tornadoes!" I remember yelling.
"Wait, go you guys under the island! Seek cover! There are 7 tornadoes of different sizes. And....they're comin' our way!" I ran as I sought cover myself and held my "grandma's" hands.
I heard the swirling debris hovered above the roof of the house and all the sides. Loud as the deafening sounds were, I heard my prayers were more audible. I held the other person's hands tighter...
"Lord, protect us! Please cover us with Your Holy Blood and surround us with Your angels..."
The 7 tornadoes passed until we heard just complete silence. The skies turned bright. We got up one by one, all in one piece.
I took a deep breath. I was still praying as I woke up. I was not the type to interpret dreams but when it came to my spiritual growth, I wanted to know.
I had been going through a huge battle at work. I counted. I just realized I was against 7 people who hold positions and who got involved in discriminating me. Yet, I was never afraid because I knew that God would be with me always as I go through this ordeal.
And I had the sense of urgency in posting this at the wee hour of this morning because I know I'm not the only one facing "tornadoes" under this vast sky. No matter how little or how big the tornado you're facing, just remember that none of them is bigger than the God we serve.
That was the nightmare I would forever treasure. It was not a nightmare but more of a reassurance from His invisible tight grip on my hands.
"“He who did not spare his own Son, but gave him up for us all—how will he not also, along with him, graciously give us all things?”- Romans 8:32 (NIV)
Many people still doubt God. Many still believe in different ways in searching for God.
If you are facing tornadoes or trials of this life, do you know where to seek cover? Where to run for refuge?
"My God is my rock, in whom I find protection. He is my shield, the power that saves me, and my place of safety. He is my refuge, my savior, the one who saves me from violence." - 2 Samuel 22:3 (NLT)
