why would I have to do a talk about penguins and their feet?

Post by traveller on Thu Dec 31, 2009 6:26 am

I'm puzzled by the 2 different scenes in this dream as they don't seem to be related to one another as they usually are.. I'm praying for insight(s) and would appreciate further thoughts/interp.
First part of the dream me and some others are sitting in a room and one of our friends walks in. My husband calls out to him by his last name and I call out to our friend by his first name. The friend gets really upset, stops nearby and then gets really upset with his girlfriend, who apparently sits in the room too. He tells her to stop filming him and that she needs to destroy the film she's made of him. It turns out he wasn't upset with us(me and my hubby) but with her.

Second part of the dream I'm in a group of people and I find out that I'm supposed to do a talk after the break. I haven't prepared anything, but it's about penguins . Somehow I've got a booklet with information on them(penguins). All of a sudden it's after the break and it's my turn to speak. I'm in the audience, looking at this other lady and I say something that I thought we were waiting for her, but no, they are all waiting for me. I then go up the front, and while I walk up I'm sort of reading up (to myself, as to prepare) a quick chapter on penguin's feet. I also wondered why I didn't prepare for this, as I could have drawn a picture of penguin's feet on the board to make the talk more appealing.. Somehow I was thinking I would get the words when I got up there, like I would know what to say eventhough I wasn't prepared. When I got up the front, I was nervous, but not scared.
End of dream.

Since the first scene involves a man and his girlfriend I would say the connection between the two dreams is about loyalty. Penguins mate for life and I'm pretty sure the male penguin helps keep the eggs warm. Look it up, but I think there is a connection there between this principle and the man in the first part of the dream.

Hi sunshine:-) Thanks for your thoughts: loyalty..mmm..interesting. It does make sense though, but I'll keep praying over it to see what to do with this and in what context.
By the way, since the dream i've researched the penguin thoroughly:-) never knew they were such interesting birds. But indeed, they take turns in incubating the eggs. And the egg is kept between their feet in a fold of skin. Some penguin species are indeed very faithful/loyal and stay literally side by side when one partner isn't out hunting. The king penguin even synchronizes his partner's movements, but is less faithful however...
Penguins are also the most specialised of all birds for life in the water/sea! And their feet are used as rudders underwater.. Would this have anything to do with life in the spirit (being specialized how to swim/flow in the Spirit)? And loyalty would fit into that...
Thanks again sunshine and God bless you!

hi there, ... i looked up the qualities of penquins and there feet...And the penquins are very good at regulating their blood flow to keep the temperture in their feet just above the freezing level. ...They do not get cold feet even in adverse conditions, therefore they do not suffer from discouragement! Getting cold feet, is to withdraw for some reason. You could be asked to encourage/teach on the topic, being faithful to the Lord and overcoming discouragement...either for yourself or others...Just an idea! Please pray, blessings Martin

Thanks Martin. I like plays on words, getting cold feet:-) that speaks to me! Doesn't God have a sense of humour!!!! And with the loyalty/faithfulness that fits in very well indeed! God is so good!
Yes, I have struggled with a lot of discouragement (amongst other things) in my life but God has ALWAYS brought me through. And yes, as I often write these testimonies down for myself for other times to read back, I'm reminded of how good the Lord has been to me. I've often had the desire to share these testimonies someday, but somehow, I tend to be the person (like in this dream) in the audience, waiting for this other lady to get up and speak. I know this is insecurity and I have confessed this to our Heavenly Father, as He showed me that by allowing insecurity we basically do not put complete trust in Him and the way He's given us abilities to glorify Him.. I'm preaching to myself here , but thanks Martin for your feedback.
It certainly was . God bless you!

Hi Traveler, All glory to God, blessings Martin ...I also thought of

Revelation 12:10-12 (New King James Version)

10 Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony, and they did not love their lives to the death. 12 Therefore rejoice, O heavens, and you who dwell in them! Woe to the inhabitants of the earth and the sea! For the devil has come down to you, having great wrath, because he knows that he has a short time.”

"Then I heard a loud voice saying in heaven, “Now salvation, and strength, and the kingdom of our God, and the power of His Christ have come, for the accuser of our brethren, who accused them before our God day and night, has been cast down. 11 And they overcame him by the blood of the Lamb and by the word of their testimony,"
Amen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I've been meditating on this since u posted it yesterday. And it's so encouraging! Funny thing is, i've been asking other women in my church to share their testimonies at our women's meetings, and no one wanted to...:-(
So, about 2 weeks before i had this dream, I made the decision I just had to start with sharing a testimony ... at our next meeting in Feb! As the holidays happened this somehow got pushed to the background, but now it's right back in my thinking! This scripture is soooo powerful, and I'll keep meditating on it; I need it..
Praise God for His Word!!!! For He is good and used you to bring this word back to my memory. Thank you!!!

Great! We're all blessed then.. How GREAT is our GOD!! I love it that He reveals, often only bit by bit, but it surely gets revealed in the end. Keeps me searching things out:-) which is good..
