[Current Mood |thoughtfulthoughtful]
[Current Music |Hillsongs - Have Your Way]

Consider the facts:

  • Watched Signs at the weekend, and it kinda made you understand the difference between co-incidence and "signs" - signs being indications or suggestions towards another purpose.
  • Had a dream last night where I was playing keyboards in my cousins old band.
  • I have previously been a worship leader in our church.
  • In the dream, the song I played was one of my favourites of all time: Hillsongs - Your Love
  • In the dream, the song I played wasn't expected by the rest of the band, and yet they all joined in and it came out totally perfect.
  • In the dream, someone (whom I could identify, but I don't think their identity was relevant at the time) was leaning on the keyboard, hindering me. I asked them to move, and they did.

Is there anyone else that can see a purpose or meaning behind this? I have my own interpretation of this sequence of events, but I don't know if that's just me thinking what I want to think or whether I'm being called towards something.

I would personally think along the theme of taking control of your own life and that perhaps it is easy to think that people are stopping you from doing what you want when in fact all you have to do is follow your heart and it will all work out.

But that is just my interpretation and probably way off the work :)

Sounds good to me, hon... I was thinking that it was something more specific than that, but you may be right.

Thanks for that! :o)

I agree with Naomi in that it may well not matter whether or not the idea itself came from you or whether it came from somewhere else.
It may well be some form of message from God for the purposes of self empowerment but if it isn't (and let's face it, these things are hard to judge) then so long as it doesn't lead you down a bad path then there's no issue.
When you actually delve into the realms of dream interpretation it can be amazing what we as humans allow ourselves to realise through dreams that we would never allow ourselves to think of whilst being awake.
Sometimes I think our sub conscious minds are far more highly evolved than our conscious minds but as to where these thoughts come from I cannot say.
I think it is possible to just "know" when you are being told something by him with no question in your mind, I am sure that is not the case all the time though and there are things that are missed.
I guess what it boils down to is faith, what I might perceive as a calling you may well put down to a culmination of suggestion by others and vice versa.
We see what we want to at the end of the day, sometimes we get it right, sometimes we get it wrong but all that perhaps matters is that we are trying to see.

I created a Custom style and added the imood code to the top of my journal view.

Unfortunately, only Paid Accounts can create custom styles.

isn't it your interpretation that matters. from what i know there can be markers in dreams, but it is you who needs to intepret it. if you ware being called to something, then it is most likely being called by you.
does that make sense?
anyway, rememeber that our dreams are affected by what we do, so themes carriying through aren't nec there to strengthen a particular point.

my last point i don't think you are being called to the priesthood, or to join a band :)

Heh, I don't think I would be much good as a priest/minister :o)

I'm not entirely convinced that it's me that's trying to make whatever point is being made. As oblivious and snofox said, I think it's a case of me trying to take control of my own life, and that's not exactly the kind of thing that you would tell yourself to do... rather something that someone would prompt in your mind to make you realise that it needs to be done.

Oh, I know what I mean! :-D

Thanks for your thoughts though... much appreciated :o)

hmm. i understand. what i mainly meant was, it doesnt nec have to be a sign from god to be important. you understand?

what i tend to believe is that we have a hoped for path before we are born, and signs, etc are ways of us trying to keep/get back on track. but that's just what i think. whatever is important to you is what you should follow, if you believe its a message from god, then follow it.

*nods* I understand where you're coming from, and I do agree with you.

It's knowing for certain whether this is a message from God, or just something I (pardon the pun) dreamt up. :-)

does it matter? i realise it's important in terms of your beliefs, but lets look at this.
you get a message
it could be from you
it could be from god
if you follow it, isn't the main thing that it doesnt hurt anybody, that i makes you feel fulfilled, that it is what would change things for the better, at least for someone, and not hurt you or those you love?

if it is a good message, then maybe act on it whether it is from you or god, thats just my opinion anyway.

Definitely something to think about there. Thanks, Naomi! :o)

Sounds a lot like you are taking control of your life... to the extent that you are even able to get rid of those things that hold you back... and are influencing others.

But I can't really comment as to what what it might mean or anything because I don't really feel I know you yet. I don't even know what you're into or anything :)

But bear in mind, God gives us gifts in the areas of things that we LIKE doing, so if you think you're hearing something specific who's to say you're not? You know yourself better than anyone.

Well yes, I suppose I do! :-)

But if God is telling me that I need to do something, how do I tell that it is God's will, and not my own will or conscience? I mean, I've had thoughts in the past, to do things that make so much sense and have so much meaning and relevence. But I've dismissed them out of hand because I got the impression that it was my own selfish mind that came up with the thoughts. How many opportunities have I missed, you know? :-)

*nod*
Even when I have good thoughts I often think they are my own and I find out at some later date that it wasn't actually from me :P

I don't know if it's my apathetic view of life speaking here, but I kinda believe that if we miss opportunities, or stuff up, then if that's the track God wants you to take it's going to keep coming back into your life, cos He has a destiny for you...
Just sometimes it makes you wanna scarem that you take so long to see it/deal with the things that stop you reaching for it :P

Sounds to me like life is kinda going OK, but there's someone getting in your way but you are able to remove them from time-to-time.

What did you think of Sign's? I thought it was a big letdown. Badly scripted and Directed.
