I had an interesting vision today while praying to the Lord, and it really intrigues me. For those of you who remember my previous dream and vision about the graveyard, you will know what I'm talking about. If not, here's two quick links for you review:
The School Shooting and the Graveyard
The Graveyard Dream - A Followup
Anyhow, today while praying, and talking with the Lord about this, He gave me another vision. But this time it was different. Related, but different. In this vision, the Lord showed me the graveyard again. But this time he showed it to me in sort of a top down, off angle from the front view. As a bit of context to this, before this I had felt as though God would resolve the issues in my life that this graveyard represented, and do it sorta Ezekiel and the valley of dry bones style. However, what He showed me today wasn't what I expected. As I'm talking to God and praying about this, and viewing this graveyard, I see this large hand appear and touch that graveyard, sweeping across it from the left, to the right.
As it did this, it completely erased the entire graveyard, and the surrounding building, leaving behind only the break room. That was literally the only thing left intact. The rest was replaced by this beautiful, sun drenched, flower filled meadow. I mean, it was gorgeous, and I remember how happy I felt while seeing this. However, as I'm contemplating this, I suddenly realized that God had just shown me how He's going to resolve this "graveyard" in my life. I thought it'd be like Ezekiel's valley of dry bones. Instead, I feel like He's telling me that He's going to completely erase what was there, and replace it with something better. Case in point:
1. The graveyard was very dark, scary, depressing, and gloomy inside. He replaced that with warm, brilliant sunshine and light.
2. The graveyard was filled with death, dry bones, gravestones, etc. He replace it with life, green grass, beautiful flowers, etc.
3. He completely removed the entire building, and all of its restrictive walls, and left behind only the one room that represented rest.
To me those 3 points are really huge. Anyhow, I just wanted to share this with you as it was a very comforting revelation from the Lord. :) In a small way of reminding me of the old saying, "Beauty from Ashes". :)
