Tornado Through My Neighborhood

Post by TheWhiteShadow on Fri Dec 07, 2012 6:41 am

I was in a car along with my mom and a coworker. We were headed toward my house, and it seemed that this guy lived a few houses away from me. He directed my attention out the window up into the sky, just above the trees and houses. I could see the effect of a tornado. The tornado, itself, was not visible...but there was some movement in the things around it (clouds, leaves) that would give away its shape, if only just a little bit. It was leaving the area where we were headed.

I looked at various houses on my street, and many of them had been struck by this tornado. The houses were all intact, but the roofs had been ripped off. I didn't know the owners of most of these homes, although a handful belonged to my neighbors. The house of the guy from work had also lost its roof. I looked at my own home, and I felt relief that it didn't appear to be damaged. Then I saw a good neighbor's house right next to mine, and I saw that it had lost its roof. After seeing this, I looked again at my own home, and I saw that it had indeed been damaged - part of the roof was missing from the back corner of the house. We stopped there and I got out of the car.

Walking around to the back side of the house, I actually didn't feel that upset about the destruction, because I had this feeling of faith in the dream that God was in control. Reaching my backyard, my mom and I joined up with her two sisters who were there to comfort me. At this point, though, I began to feel upset about the loss...maybe because it seemed to be the appropriate response in front of them? The feelings weren't overly strong, though. One of my aunts tried to compliment the design of my house, asking about my beautiful leaded-glass windows (which my house doesn't have). This seemed really silly considering my house was missing part of its roof, and I responded very inappropriately at her - I actually cursed about the windows (which I wouldn't do!). Then, my stepdad walked up and spoke about rebuilding, saying that we needed to go slow. He explained that my uncle would help with this project (he's a journeyman electrician or carpenter, I can't remember), but that taking our time was better because it would give him (my uncle) more time to work, which would mean that he'd be able to receive a paycheck for a longer period.

Hmmmm....

If this were my dream... having family in it can mean one of two things. It's about your life or it's about a real tornado in the area that your family lives.

You are there for the tail-end of the storm hitting and only see the aftermath.

That you weren't there when the tornado hit is a good thing. Feeling the tornado and the related anxiety with your family present would be (at least for me) that a period of intense anxiety is on it's way into your life and it's God's warning for intercession, or it would be about a real tornado happening somewhere to someone.

If this is about things in your life, I would say that you are going to do a great job of believing God and staying in peace during the situation and that some good will surely come out of it.

Thanks, Mia -

I think that this tornado is about my life, at least for this season. I have anxiety in nearly all areas (family, work, personal, spiritual) right now, and I'm in and out of peace as a result.

I am thinking that my family in this dream isn't literal. My mother and stepfather, for instance, often represent the Lord. My aunts and uncles are probably other people offering encouragement.

Were you anxious in the dream?

Yes. First about my neighborhood as a whole, and then about my own home.

Then, being symbolic, the message is that something positive is coming out of all this. :)
