If you have followed this blog for any length of time, you know I don’t mind “putting myself out there”! This is another one of those times. Today as I had been working on this blog and Vine of Life, I just kept feeling the Holy Spirit wooing me to get alone with Him. God had something for me. I have felt this many times and told my husband I was going to our room to pray.
When I entered the room, I prayed and wanted to pray in the Spirit, but that was not what God had in mind. I began to feel unusually fatigued. I decided to lie down and pray. When I did, I closed my eyes. This was not a dream as I was clearly aware of everything going on around me. Without a doubt I saw a vision.
Now I am not one to walk around and see visions everyday. In fact, I have had a vision only two other times in my life! This vision was exactly as this picture depicts except I was higher in the whirlwind. At first, being a Texan, I referred to it as a tornado and God immediately corrected me! “It is not a tornado….it is a whirlwind.” I don’t know what the importance of the difference of the two, but there is a significant meaning!
I knew I was completely safe in the middle of it. There was calm and a peace such as I have never experienced before! This was the first thing that caught my attention. I didn’t want to come out of it. I was at the whirlwind’s mercy. Even though I was in the middle of it I knew what the outside of it looked like and what was happening outside of it. There was NO destruction! Houses were not being torn apart, trees were not being uprooted, there was no destruction whatsoever. Then I saw myself. On the inside was a total calm. I was not afraid, but I was curious. I wondered where this whirlwind was taking me. Somehow I knew in my spirit this whirlwind was transporting me and I would not be allowed to stay in it. I did feel realization of that and I felt disappointment it wouldn’t last forever, yet I knew it was necessary for me to come out of it.
I had no idea where it was taking me and I couldn’t help wondering where the final destination of this whirlwind would be. I never saw the end of the vision, but what struck me was what I FELT while I was in it! I cannot explain any of the significance of this vision at this time. But significance I know it has!
I know God was in control of the whirlwind because peace was there and that is the mark of God’s presence and the fact He is in control of what we are not. I did not feel anything bad was ahead of me or behind me. I do feel a little silly telling you this because at this point it really doesn’t have a particular point other than I was to trust God and enjoy the ride. I have no idea what all of it means, but as time goes on I do know it will be revealed to me!
Please, keep me in your prayers, dear reader! Great things are ahead…..pray I have wisdom and revelation! Abundant blessings to you, dear reader!! I appreciate you! I will see you soon!
