When I first found out we were having twins, I started having dreams. I dream so vividly. It’s one of the main reasons I don’t watch scary movies. I don’t think I can live with images like that in my head. I plan things subconsciously in my dreams, I get answers to questions in my dreams, and I’ve even been known to remember where I put my keys from time to time all while I’m asleep. Weird right?
As soon as I found out we were having twins the dreaming began. But not dreams of planning or questions about what they’ll be like… I’ve been dreaming of more. ?
I’ve been having dreams of triplets instead of twins. I’ve low-key been terrified that we just haven’t found the third baby yet. It’s hiding behind the placenta or it’s in another uterus or I don’t know. There’s all kinds of crazy things that happen in pregnancy and I understand none of it so… it could happen!! There is a woman who thought she only had seven kids inside of her and turns out there were two more that previously counted. How in the world does that happen?! 9 babies… ?
After we got the initial scans diagnosing Baby B with TTTS and before we actually went to Cincinnati Childrens Hospital, I had a daydream. You could also call this a vision or a prophecy or any other term that makes you feel comfortable. It happened while I was driving and talking to Cincinnati Childrens to get registered, scheduled and all the details in order.
As soon as I hung up the phone I started having a very real and vivid vision. I was driving (convenient right?). The picture literally filled the windshield, I was so overwhelmed with emotion in a very real way that it made me start sobbing. I rarely cry. I had to pull over.
I saw Shadrach, Meshach and Abednego in the fire with God standing next to them. ?? Flames engulfed them as well as my windshield. ??The fire slowly started to morph into my womb and replacing the 3 were my two twins and God holding both of them babies in the womb. (I can’t even type this without crying.) I very clearly heard “You are definitely in the fire right now, but I’m there I’m holding these babies and I have the three of you protected in this fire.”
There was a song on the radio that started playing that I was unfamiliar with (I looked it up later) and the babies started movin and groovin’ like I havdn’t felt yet!!.
The song was called “Another in the Fire” by Hillsong United:
“There is another in the fire
Standing next to me.
There is another in the waters
Holding back the seas.
And should I ever need reminding
What power set me free,
There is a grave that holds no body
And now that power lives in me.”
Call me shooketh. (KJV) ? I settled myself enough to get back on the road and went straight to my sisters house. Still shook and just letting the words settle in my heart. And yeah, also my mind, because it was unreal.
If you’d like to feel the power of the Holy Spirit in a real way in whatever situation you are in, ask God for a vision. It’s some Old Testament like event that will make people look at you a little funny when you tell them, but, it’s real. I’m not Rachel Righteous either. Im not perfect in my walk, or my faith or my actions… I’m low-key still trying to trick my very committed, born again believer in Jesus Mema into saying “Hells Bells” just for a laugh. I’m not sure why I got to experience this. This vision is just the way God showed himself to me to give me the mental redirect I needed with these twins.
I’m not in control of this situation and, much to my extreme dismay, I don’t get to be. There is nothing I can do to make the situation change. I can’t eat better, I can’t exercise more. I can’t stand on my head and keep my legs closed to keep them from coming out.
The only thing I can do now is pray, hope and rest knowing that my dreams of triplets was just Emma Grace, Kira Ruth and God hanging out together until it’s time for them to make their entrance.
Pretty cool, right?
