This post is kind of a second look on the last one. Yes, when I had that dream, it was horrible. But I am convinced God gave me that dream to warn me of the trial to come.
God is so amazing! He speaks through dreams! There is nothing that God cannot bring himself glory through! I had thought the dream was a nightmare, but it was something more mysterious than a nightmare. It prepared me, it allowed me to feel pain before the actual thing... and I thank God that he found it right to warn me.... because he loves me.
