Dream – A Divorce
Re: Leaving First Love
July 12, 2009
Frankly, I am not sure if this dream has anything to do with current events. At a minimum, I see
it as an encouragement from the Lord that what I have been receiving in words and dreams is
from Him and not a fertile imagination.
On July 12, 2009, I had a dream about a couple that we knew over ten years ago. We have had
no contact with them for at least this many years and had no idea what was going on in their
lives. We remember them as a very close couple that loved the Lord. When they were courting,
they were a picture of first love.
However, in the dream, the wife was sitting alone wondering what had happened. I was given
the impression that her husband had walked away from her. I felt led to try to comfort her and
help her understand.
I did not know what to make of this dream, so I just prayed for them.
The next day I drove to our previous hometown and had lunch with some friends who also knew
this couple and were close to them at one time. I inquired how the couple was doing and
received a strange look from my friends. They said, “Don’t you know; they are divorced.” No one
seemed to know the details, but it appears the husband, in fact, did walk away from the
marriage. However, this happened possibly several years ago.
Why I was given a dream of it at this point in time, I do not know. There might be some greater
spiritual meaning to it. Perhaps this is the Lord’s way of validating the dreams and words that I
receive. It is possible that the Lord used this particular experience to encourage me that I am
not out in left field, so to speak.
Or, does it portend some spiritual divorce of the church that has left its first love?
(4) 'But I have this against you, that you have left your first love. (5) 'Therefore remember from
where you have fallen, and repent and do the deeds you did at first; or else I am coming to you
and will remove your lampstand out of its place--unless you repent. (Revelation 2:4-5 NASB)
