Christian Dream Interpretation — Lauren Daigle saw visions of her future career — Part 2 of 3

Lauren Daigle's 'You Say' Breaks Billboard Record, Becomes Biggest ...

 

Lauren Daigle was diagnosed with cytomegalovirus when she was 15 years old.  The infection necessitated a two-year absence from her high school.  During the two years of recovery at home, God gave Lauren dreams and visions of her future.

 

“He started imparting vision to me during that time. It was amazing because I was laying on the bed, wasn’t able to do anything and I would get visions of touring, and tour buses and being on and off stages, and venues, and interviews, and charts. I mean He showed me literally so much of it, and I would lay in bed and say God is this just me dreaming? Am I getting cabin fever, or is this really what you’re calling me to?

It was beautiful because not only in that time did He awaken a dream in me, but He also didn’t allow me to fall under to what the enemy wanted to create in that time – loneliness & depression. God let me see the next season.”

( “Lauren Daigle’s unexpected path to purpose.”   www.life1025.com

 

In the midst of suffering, God encouraged Lauren Daigle with hope.  Seeing into the future, He decided to share some of His knowledge with her which, of course, proved to be spot-on accurate. (Check out her breathtaking 😅 tour schedule here! )

 

I’ve experienced – on a MUCH smaller scale – two occasions of God showing me future events through dreams.  Two simple, short dreams that made a lasting impression, and that I later saw unfold before me with my waking eyes.

 

It’s pretty cool to have that happen, but I don’t think that is God’s main desire for us:  that we see future events in our night visions.  I believe His main goal in our lives is to show us how much He loves us, how much He accepts us, and how He wants to truly be our “life.”

 

I had a dream once that taught me about God’s acceptance; it literally changed my life, changed the way I relate to God, and changed the way I understood how He relates to me.  I call it The Black Crows dream.  This is how it went…

 

I was looking up into the sky at a large white sail that was being carried in the air by half a dozen crows.  As I continued to watch them fly away, I realized that it was not a sail, but a cloak, a robe.  My own white robe . . . and the crows were taking it away from me!  I looked on, bothered by this fact, and meanwhile I was chewing a piece of raw meat.  I just stood there, watching and chewing.  I was not able to swallow the meat; I found it to be inedible.

 

You are probably familiar with the idea of a “robe of righteousness”:

I will greatly rejoice in the LORD, My soul shall be joyful in my God; For He has clothed me with the garments of salvation, He has covered me with the robe of righteousness, as a bridegroom decks himself with ornaments, and as a bride adorns herself with her jewels. (Isaiah 61:10)

 

So when I woke in the morning after the Black Crows dream, I thought, “Okay, God.  I get it.  I hear You.  My sin is making me unrighteous, and that is why the crows were taking away my white ‘robe of righteousness.’”

 

Was my dream interpretation correct???  Heck no!

    Thank you once again for posting your personal experience with our living and active Savior! So great to hear of His personal involvement in the lives of individuals. I am anxious to hear part 3 and the interpretation of your dream! I agree with your comments that He ‘loves and accepts us and wants to be our life’. So fascinating that you are bringing up this topic of hearing from God. I have been wrestling for some time now with how ‘silent’, or should I say ‘quiet’, our wonderful Savior appears to be at times. I have come to the conclusion that He is teaching me that ‘His grace is sufficient’. More often than not when I am not hearing directions I find myself simply saying “I trust you Lord” and leaving it at that. He has, after all, given us an intellect and a biblical worldview from scripture in which to pull resources to make life choices. What are your thoughts on how quiet God can be? I think I recall somewhere that Aaron Budgen made a comment that God was ‘bashful’. I assume that Aaron means God would not be the opposite, which would be ‘flamboyant’. Hence, His quiet demeanor in the midst of His participation in our life. Your thoughts please. Looking forward to you reading part 3!

      Tom, I hear ya — I wrestle with the silence of God too; I definitely find it hard sometimes to walk by faith. And you have the absolutely spot-on correct answer in saying that all we can do is say, “I trust you, Lord.” (And hey! Lauren Daigle has a great song titled “Trust in You,” where she says “when you don’t give the answer, as I cry out to you, I will trust in You.” …. sigh… it’s hard though, I get it! And I assume you are struggling with your decision to stay in Texas or to move to Tennessee?? Well, this I know; if you don’t hear from Him, He will work with whatever decision you make. In fact, I think He can teach us MORE through the bad decisions we make! I don’t think God is being bashful with YOU, or intentionally withdrawn, but it may be that He does not have a strong opinion, so He is leaving the decision up to you. . . . I think you are referring to the “Loneliness of God” series that Aaron Budjen made; there are two programs, where he talks about God’s deep feelings. Oh, and also, Aaron’s “The Will of God” series may be helpful to you if you have not listened to it already. . . . You know, I think one of the reasons that I enjoyed “religion” and church so much, is that it provided me with a system to live by, so that I did not have to walk by faith. I just followed all of their rules, and that does not require TRUST or faith. And what I’ll say in Part 3 is that the dream was a very clever way for God to teach me how to grow up — I had to be willing to stop believing the devil’s lies, in order to swallow the meat of the Scriptures. I had to stop believing that my struggles with sin made me unrighteous; I had to choose to trust that He MADE me righteous because of what Jesus did on the cross. We have to choose, we have to surrender to the New Covenant. And it becomes a life of trust and faith and reliance on Him. Which, as you and I are discussing, can be difficult at times.
