Glad - Stabbing Dreams x2

Recommended Posts

Glads dreams are about abuse at home escalating.  Both her and her daughter's dreams about being stabbed came before the latest episode where Glad thought her husband was going to hit her.

nerd

She has been verbally abused for a long time and now it was so bad that she thought he was going to hit her.  

If you can see anything to add to her dreams in light of this please do so.

Ugh...that's what I was afraid of with the daughter's dream.  :(

It was a touchy subject to even breach, so I tried to be careful with how I worded things.  Obviously, she was receiving confirmation for what she already knew to be the meaning.

I'm assuming you've both talked about it in private, so I'm not going to add anything to what's out there.


Another thought:  Maybe ask her if she's satisfied with what's been shared on those two dreams, and if she'd like the topics left open, locked or even deleted?  The subject is sensitive, and you/she may not want someone else wandering into the thread.

Yes, it fits my family. What I can't figure out is why we get this dreams now. My husband has been verbally and emotionally abusive for years and years, so I am puzzled to why the dreams NOW.
Two days after my daughter's dream a situation irrupted where for the first time ever I thought I would get hit by my husband. My 19 year old son intervened and it didn't escalate.
People always tell me how nice my husband is - which he is, to everyone but us.

I needed to know that my dreams are not interpreted by my knowledge, but I also need to know why the timing of this dreams. That is a bit unsettling for me.

Thank you again, Glad

Glad,

Did the dream come before this last episode?

It seems like the dreams are a warning that things are going to escalate. It is a warning, if the dreams came before this latest episode. You should seriously pray and seek counseling, from your church if you are a member somewhere.

I would pray and ask God what you should do and take these warnings very seriously. I don't believe that God condones any kind of abuse and neither should you. Seriously, seek help. Even verbal abuse is a horrible thing for your children to live with.

If you need anything, don't hesitate to ask.

Hugs,
Mia

Hi Mia,

Yes both dreams came before the last episode, my daughter's was early Friday morning, mine was on Saturday morning and the episode was Sunday evening, but like I said, my daughter was thankfully absent. She did not tell me her dream until Monday night.
Thank you for your advice Mia. I am waiting on God and the word "now is the time", just wanting to make sure I hear correctly and I am obedient in what I do.

Blessings, Glad

I think she should leave if she has any more warning dreams like this - especially if they get worse.

You absolutely can tell her that this is what you would do in that situation. You told her to get help, but maybe she needs to hear that it's ok to actually leave.

I probably should have used more words but this is what I sent:

It's me again. I've had you on my heart all morning and it keeps coming to me that you really need to take a stand for yourself and your children and leave. It doesn't have to be permanently but you have to take a stand for what is right.

This is a great thread and I have used it myself.

Hugs,

Hi all, sorry for my lack of presence lately.  Its been quite hectic here.  I do feel moved with this thread, being an child that grew up seeing my mom physically and emotionally abused for years. I almost followed in her footsteps, if not for the total grace of God!  It is a very scary and sensitive subject. What I notice MOST in both the older post, and her recent responses to you is her hesitation to take action.  One thing to note in an abusive situation is the abuser totally strips the abused of all self confidence to keep control.  She is doubting herself, and abandoning common sense by staying in this situation (the second of which I wouldn't say to her, but will be praying for her about). She needs confidence, & encouragement that she is doing the right thing.  Because we all know she wont get confidence and encouragement from him.  The whole 'timing' thing she is referring to, in my opinion are only her fears talking.  This is keeping her immobile.  God is warning her NOW, to prevent things from escalating.  The warnings are coming now, because NOW is the time, TODAY is the day to seek help and refuge.  I will be praying for the doors to open, so that they can escape this situation.  HE will make a way for her! 1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

The damage that is being done by remaining in this situation, could shape her children's relationships forever.  By standing up in this situation, she will be showing her kids by her actions, that she (and the kids) have value.  By taking good care of herself, and not allowing herself to be mistreated, she is showing her kids that they should also take good care of themselves and not allow themselves to be mistreated in the future!  Even if she leaves for a time, and they get couseling and work on things in the marrage it is setting a good example of boundaries to the kids to never allow others to mistreat them.  Kids learn by what we do, not what we say.   I am praying for this situation.  Please keep us posted as she updates you.  

Mia, if you feel anything I have posted here is appropriate to pass along to her, please feel free.  It looks like you and her are pming in the posts you shared above.  Im not sure that any of this should go in the thread.  So yes, I feel in my heart, the old post you found is spot on with relating to this issue she is going through now.  I feel a sense of URGENCY for her and her family.  Like she needs to start quietly pursing and escape route, ASAP!! If you feel like I should PM her Mia, please let me know, and I will gladly do so.

Ok, this is my response to Glad! Lots of prayers that she receieves it well!!!

Hi Glad,

I hope this pm finds you doing well. After reading some of your threads on your recent dreams, I feel very strongly about sending you this message, and a huge sense of urgency. I hope you will pray on what things I am saying here, and if you feel an inner peace that you will begin to take action (in spite of any fears or doubts you may have). I want you to know that none of this comes from a place of judgement towards you or yours by any means. I feel like I must obey what I feel the Lord is speaking to me to encourage you, and what you choose to do with it is entirely up to you.

I do feel extremely moved by your stabbing threads and recent warning dreams the Lord has benn giving you, and I sense that there is for sure some serious emotional abuse going on. Especially if you are starting to become fearful that your husband is going to get physical. This is such a tender subject for me, being a child that grew up seeing my mom physically and emotionally abused for years. I almost followed in her footsteps, if not for the total grace of God! It is a very scary and sensitive subject. What I notice MOST in both the older post, and your recent responses is a hesitation to take action. One thing to note in an abusive situation is the abuser totally strips the abused of all self confidence to keep control. I feel like you are doubting your own better judgement by staying in this relationship as it stands right now. Im praying that God will give you the confidence, & encouragement that you need to know that you are doing the right thing. Because in an abusive relationship you will never get confidence and encouragement from the other party. When you refer to 'timing' in one of your older posts, waiting on the right timing, in my opinion those are only your fears talking. I strongly feel like this 'waiting to know if this is the right timing to get your family out of this situation' is keeping you immobile. God is warning you NOW with these dreams, to prevent things from escalating. The warnings are coming NOW, because NOW is the time, TODAY is the day to seek help and refuge. I really feel as you start taking heed to these warnings, and start seeking out a transition plan, that the doors and opportunities are waiting for you, right NOW. I feel as you walk in faith, and trust God with this, that these doors will open and present themselves to you as you actively pursue the best route of escape for your family. I also feel like this transition will be a seemless and smooth one, as God will order your steps. I will be praying for the doors to open, so that you and your kids all can safely escape this situation. HE will make a way for you!

1 Corinthians 10:13 There hath no temptation taken you but such as is common to man: but God is faithful, who will not suffer you to be tempted above that ye are able; but will with the temptation also make a way to escape, that ye may be able to bear it.

(I have to add here, that God gave my mother several opportunities to get out of her situation. Each time she waited, the abuse got worse and the opportunties weren't as good and the obticales were larger as more time went on! Even so, he still delivered her...but it could have been much easier if she left earlier.)

The damage that is being done by remaining in this situation, could shape your children's relationships forever. By standing up in this situation, you will be showing your kids by your actions, that you (and the kids) have value. By taking good care of yourself, and not allowing yourself to be mistreated, you are showing your kids that they should also take good care of themselves and not allow themselves to be mistreated in the future! Even if you only leave for a time, and you and your husband get couseling and work on things in the marriage, this is setting a good example of boundaries to the kids. It also shows them to never allow others to mistreat them. Kids learn by what we do, not what we say. And your actions, or inaction is speaking loudly to them. I am praying for this situation. I feel such a sense of URGENCY for you and your family. Like you really need to consider starting to quietly pursue an escape route, ASAP!! This is what is strong in my heart for you and your family. I cant express how STRONGLY I feel that NOW is the time for this intervention. We dont know where your husbands heart is at, or what things will conspire in the near future, or what things have been put into place to make things go smoothly for the furture of your family. Please take everything I have spoken to prayer, and if you feel like I hve missed the mark I apoligize whole heartedly. I just couldn't sit back and hold back what I felt that the Lord was urging me to encourage you to do in this time.

Lots of Love, Ecouragement, and Prayers Headed your way right now!! If your heart feels a confirmation to this message, please follow that leading. I KNOW that you have it in you to get through this! YOU CAN DO THIS!! Dont doubt that you are equipt to handle this situation with HIM (God) having your back!!!! All things will be worked out for you and your family's good purpose that God has planned. All of the many details will be handled by the almighty one, as you begin to actively move in the direction He is leading you. Please dont hesitate to keep me posted with how you are doing, and to let me know if you need prayer!! ❤️

Hi All!! This was Glads response to me....I feel much better, like I have spoken what was on my heart.

Hi Daisy, thank you so much for your message, I can sense how much heartfelt this is. I appreciate the time and effort you put into emailing me, it really spoke to my heart, especially that you would care enough to address me. I am even more thankful for your prayers.

You are right when it comes to me not taking action, but I have clung to this for years, that when the time comes for me to go, that God would speak loud and clear to me, because I need to know that I know that I know, today is the day.
I believe change is very close upon me, not sure which way, but I do believe something is going to happen in the near future. I am not sure what, but whatever it is, it will bring change.
I fully agree with what you sense and I thank you for sharing it with me.

The thing with the time is, that I recently received a word from someone I fully trust, that God was asking me to wait just a little while longer, if I could ... for by me staying something was going to break that had to break first - and I fully agree and have witness with that. My husband, who is baptized and a tongue speaking Christian, is bound and has been bound for years by a very strong demonic presence that absolutely hates God in me. I have been addressed as Satan and told to leave (in Jesus Name). Every time he loses it he attacks God in me. He is two persons in one and the rest of the world, except some that have experienced it themselves, everyone thinks he is the sweetest guy around. I don't know what has cost me more tears, what he did or didn't do to and for us, or that no one wanted to believe me, no matter what I said or my kids, for that matter. I still have only a few people that believe me, but those people are important to me, the rest is not.
But than again, when I see my husband with other people I hardly believe it myself. It is incredible how he can switch. I probably wouldn't believe it either.

You are right, this has messed with my head something terrible, so I am not sure if these dreams are more for my sanity or more for the urgency - even tough I fully agree, there is change coming. It has to.
You are also right, I am fearful and need to walk through that fear. I pray I don't hear God's timing through my fear, but with all the insecurity going on in my life, I need to be able to at least trust God to make it known to me in ways that I fully understand, that this is the day to leave.

Thank you again so much!!!!!
Blessings, Glad
