I had a dream this morning (1/14/15). In my dream, I see a music instructor and a violin. One of my children picks up the violin to play, but it has broken strings and can’t be played.
Then I see that my daughter Abigail is about to give a recital. Her violin instructor is accompanying her. But they are not playing their violins. Rather, they are both playing pianos and singing.
Abigail is singing soprano and her instructor is singing alto. They are singing a song that I am vaguely familiar with, perhaps from my childhood. The words and tune are clear, “…walk on through the wind, walk on through the rain…..”. In a high soprano voice, Abigail holds out the word “high” as they sing the final line “hold your head up high…”.
We applaud. I am amazed at how well she held out the high note singing the word “high,” and I begin to wake up.
It was a beautiful dream. I believe God is speaking something to me through it.
Anyone that knows my daughter Abigail knows that her life has pretty well revolved around playing her violin during the past few years. The broken violin at the start of the dream along with her playing piano and singing for a recital instead of playing her violin seems to be speaking about some type of disruption or change coming soon.
It speaks to me of seeming disappointments. Things we hold very dear to us in this life may be broken and replaced by something else.
Something higher. Something better.
An emphasis on “hold your head up high” speaks to me of setting our gaze Heavenward. When Abigail sang this line and held out the word “high” for a long time, it was beautiful. There was joy and gladness in our hearts.
At our family devotion time I shared my dream and sang the portion of the song that I heard in it. Abigail recognized the tune but did not know the lyrics. She had played it a few months ago in the Salina Symphony for a concert. And her string quartet is also planning to play an arrangement of the song for an upcoming event.
Here are the lyrics:
“You’ll Never Walk Alone”[Verse]When you walk through the storm
Hold your head up high
And don’t be afraid of the dark
At the end of the storm is a golden sky
And the sweet silver song of the lark[Chorus]
Walk on, through the wind
Walk on, through the rain
Though your dreams be tossed and blown
Walk on, walk on, with hope in your heart
And you’ll never walk alone
You’ll never walk alone
The song itself is beautiful and represents hope in the midst of a storm. We will never walk alone as long as we are walking with the LORD – Yahweh. Hope in anyone or anything else is a false hope and probably based on lies.
Jesus Christ/ Yahshua Messiah is the Way, the TRUTH, and the Life.
A storm is coming. We have been expecting it for years. As believers in Jesus Christ, let us fix our eyes upon Him and set our hope fully in Him.
