Flooded Parking Lot
October 4, 2020
Our dear friend France allowed us once again to use a dream that she had a few weeks ago on September 21, 2020. You will recall perhaps that she was the recipient of a beautiful and exciting dream back in January entitled "The Turquoise Car" (see post). We hope that, apart from teaching you how to interpret dreams, it will encourage you to believe that God can speak prophetically to anyone, even to 'ordinary' folks like you and me! France entitled her dream, "Flooded Parking Lot".
I'm in what I believe to be a school looking out through the glass front doors. It's raining a lot. I go outside to observe it and I see that it is a very heavy rain that starts flooding the parking lot. It's going above the curb and higher but it doesn't get to the school. There is still a bit of green grass over to the left of the school for us to walk on. As the rain starts subsiding, I call a friend over to look at the weird break in the clouds. There seems to be a reflection of the earth in the clouds, almost like a mirror or an upside down lake. I say to my friend "How is that happening?" The reflection is a beautiful scene of the earth, like a postcard picture.
I was not scared in the dream about the rain but it was not a lovely summer rain, it was a heavy, heavy rain with dark clouds.
As soon as France related the dream to me, I immediately thought that this was a prophetic dream. When I commented on my sense, she said that she had felt the same way, so we decided to approach the dream from this vantage point, since the Lord seemed to be confirming our sense about it. However, even though the Lord was revealing something about what is happening 'out there' in the world, there is also a message from God that is specifically for France. There is something that He wants her to do.
The focus of the dream is of course France, the dreamer.
There are 3 sub focuses:
1. The school: This is a place of learning and so it could represent the Church in general, where we learn and where we grow in the things of God. Some details related to the school are the parking lot, the grass and the curb.
2. The heavy rain: In her description of what she's seeing, France is really emphasizing how much rain is falling. There's a lot of it. It makes us think immediately of Matthew 7:
The one important detail associated with the rain are the dark clouds and the fact that its flooding the parking lot.
3. The scene in the sky: It's a reflection of the beauty of nature here on earth. A detail for this sub-focus would be the woman that France is pointing out this scene to.
