Vessels

I put this into my drafts 24 days ago. Talk about….procrastination.

Point is I had this dream I think on 7/12 or a day or two after. Meh. Sorry guys. But it happened! I swear! and I haven’t felt like I’ve had a “meaningful” dream in a long time so I thought I would document it here for my memory sake and also, maybe your enjoyment. So here we go!

I don’t really know where I was, but I was in a room and I kept feeling like something was rising up in my throat. If you’ve followed me to any degree you might already know that I’m a bit emetophobic. I have been since I was little. So I remember in my dream being quite grossed out feeling like I was going to spew. Ha. Much to my surprise though, it wasn’t going to go down (or up?) that way. When I felt the feeling of something rising up in my throat I opened my mouth to pull out some sort of black crumpled ball that was — almost sticky and pruny.

But wait there’s more.

The rising feeling came again and I pulled out of my mouth a small bottle.

Huh?

The rising feeling came again and I pulled out of my mouth a small bottle.

Ok…

The rising feeling came again and I pulled out of my mouth a large almost wine sized bottle.

How is that possible?

The rising feeling came again and I pulled out of my mouth a large almost wine sized bottle.

I wake up.

Now let’s just be real here. Knowing that you’re going to potentially expel your insides is pretty gross. But taking empty glass bottles out of your mouth…is like something you might see someone employed at the carnival side show do.

But what does it all mean?

The morning after I had this dream I shared it with my mom. I just felt like I couldn’t make heads or tails of it. I asked my mom to write up her thoughts again for me since I didn’t write this blog post on the day of. Here’s what she said:

PRUNE is a plum very ripened.  
You are a fruitful speaker grown under the tender care of your Jesus the Gardener & your environment good, bad even ugly have been part of the soil you were hewned? In (& of course your Mother LOL ? )
Fully ripened now plucked from GOD’s vine ready to give LOL
If the bottles were empty..GOD will fill as needed with the words/wisdom you need to reach others.  Like fine wine the best is served when Jesus turned the water into wine at the wedding @ his MOTHERS request LOL
He saved the best for last especially when the world does the opposite Read the scripture about it.
So in short there were two main things I got from that at the time and then as she reminded me about her thoughts:
1. What is coming out of my mouth has been ripened to be ready
2. The bottles are empty and ready to be filled by God
The takeaways I had at the time and then again as I reminded myself of this dream was actually the story of the woman and the jars. The jars and containers were empty but the oil kept coming so she needed to keep gathering more and more vessels to hold it.
When all is said and done, this is what I can gather:
It is a ripe season, and initially my vessels were small but once time passes the vessels become larger and larger. God will fill them up.
