Emotionally Impaired Child

Post by Daisy on Fri Mar 29, 2013 5:10 am

Background: These people used to go to our old church, and were leaders there. We used to be friends, and still are, but havent talked in a while. I have always had a spiritual connection to this couple. Even when they were going through things they couldn't tell the laymen of the church about, I sensed and picked up what they were going through for praying purposes. I also have had dreams about this couple, that have manifested. They left our old church around the time we did, and started their own church, and it is Supposivly flourishing. We totally believe in the message they have, and thought we were going to become members of their new ministry when they first started, and we were planning on being a key part of helping in the ministry. Their childrens ministry was in the baby stages, maybe even in pregnancy stage. They didn't have anything for my daughters age group, and expected the big kids to sit through service with us. My kids never have fought me to go to church, but they were not comfortable at this church. I was disappointed, bc I had such high hopes for this church at the time. I refused to force them, especially bc they LOVE church normally. I started going to a church down the road from me, and my kids LOVE it...the childrens ministry is strong and established at my new church. I feel the message at my friends church from the pullpit, is much more of a feeding to me spiritually than my new church...but if my kids arent being fed then its pointless. Supposively our friends church has their childrens ministry fully launched. Im hesitant to go and check out their children's ministry again IRL. Its quite a drive, and most sundays my husband works. So I am getting everyone ready and out the door solo. Plus, at this point we have already started going to another church..and their children's ministry not being up and running yet was a good exit for us. I would hate to go again, and then have to explain or hurt feelings if we don't feel like its a fit for us. We know a lot of people already that go to this church. My new church is literally a one min drive, so its easier to get the whole house ready and still be on time. Im constantly getting invited to events for their church through mutual friends. Their new ministry started a little over 1 year ago, which is about the age of the impaired baby in the dream below. Also, irl they are pregnant, and about to give birth to their third child. I was feeling led to pray for them yesterday, feeling her real life delivery is soon. Sorry for the novel... lol!

My dream: I had a dream the my husband and I were co-dwelling in a home with our friends, and all of our kids were too. I was not looking forward to the lack of privacy at all, but I was just going to go with the flow in the dream (IRL I would NOT be cool with these living arrangements). I seen their new baby's bedroom was decorated in neutral colors, since they didn't know the sex yet. I kept seeing flashes of BLUE, concerning this baby's room, and I knew in my heart they were having another boy. As we were sitting at the table, I see a baby girl whom they must have adopted. She had earrings in and she was sitting on my lap snuggling with me. I knew this child was not birthed by them, and sensed that she wasn't handicapped...physically she didn't even look the slightest bit impared...but I did sense that she did have some emotional special needs as I was holding her. There was nothing that indicated what I felt, I just knew it. She was about a year or so old. Then, as I was holding her, she reached one of her earrings and started pulling it out of her ear. I was trying to stop her, but she kept pulling the earring until she ripped it completely out of her ear!!!! I seen her holding the diamond stud in her hand!!!! I handed her off to her dad, and gave him something for her ear to contain the blood...while I searched the home for peroxide to clean the ear. My husband started helping me to search the home, but we couldnt find any peroxide ANYWHERE. The only thing I could do was to clean the ear with alcohol, which I knew would be very painful for the child. It was all that we had though. I told her father, as I was holding the cloth doused in rubbing alcohol, that I was going to quickly clean her ear. I reached to do this, holding the cloth on her ear. She was in excruciating pain, as I let go she was out of my reach. I instructed her father (our friend) to hug the child and comfort her to settle her down.

ANY THOUGHTS??????

Your dreams are usually somewhat literal while symbolic... could this be a different family?


Mia

I'm a lousy example of a Christian but a PERFECT example of God's Grace.

Is it possible that the emotionally impaired little girl symbolizes your friend's young church that has been healthy spiritually until now. However something has happened and she/it has become emotionally impaired and is now about to stop listening to the voice of God and head off into a new direction? (The earring symbolizing listening to the voice and direction of God. Ripping it out symbolizing no longer wanting to listen to His directions). You and your husband would be available to help with immediate damage control, but the ultimate weight of getting the little girl ( church/ministry) fixed up would be on the parents.

Just a thought.

In any case, I'd say continue to pray about relationships and fellowship as it concerns your friends.

. Thanks so much for ur post Mia! I don't know anyone else that is expecting, or anyone else that is trying to have kids right now, except for this couple irl. Most of my family and friends are at that content stage of not desiring growth to their families. I suppose though it cld be someone I haven't met yet. Will be sure to keep this in mind. I was wondering if since the baby girl was the same age as their ministry being birthed about a year ago almost exactly, if there was a possible message of something being a bit off about their ministry. I cld b stretching it though. Is it possible to mostly dream literal, but to sometimes dream an occasional mostly symbolic dream? I find it strange that I'm instructing the baby's father on how to nurture his own child. If this is about their church, my biggest concern is wondering if I'm supposed to be serving in their ministry or not. Like I said, I have not one single drop of desire anymore to be involved in their church at this point...without any good reason except the fact that their children's ministry was far from what I believe was best for my kids. I did have high expectations for this ministry at the beginning though. I just don't want to miss a possible message from God.

Wld love ur thoughts on this one.

Thanks ladyonfire for your comments. I was thinking similarly. If this is what the dream is about, I wonder if our part is to help by praying. I am wondering if even though the baby girl appears normal outwardly, if there is something a bit off inwardly with the ministry. I don't feel a peace at all about being involved in this ministry right now. We did commit to help out when they first started the church, but communicated that we had a change of mind. Their children's ministry is what I didn't have a peace about. I was going to volunteer with the kids, but it didnt sit well in my spirit. My kids were uncomfortable there too, and they LOVE church normally. We initially considered returning once their childrens ministry was fully operating, but i have no desire now. Outwardly observing the ministry though, it seems to be thriving. Supposedly they have worked on the children's ministry, but I'm pretty peaceful about where we are attending now.

This may or may not be related to this dream, but its another dream about a baby about this age I had earlier this week. This one is a bit disturbing to me.
