There is so much to tell. So much to hear.
Today I’d like to share a dream that a dear friend recently shared with me. She felt it was silly, but in reality it is profound, and I believe timely; revealing something that is on the Father’s Heart for this time. Exposing something that the enemy has tried to keep hidden and make forgotten. NO LONGER!
I sent the dream to a few people already and have included some of their feedback below. Feel free to add your own thoughts and revelations to the comment section remembering that we all see in part, and even what may seem like the silliest of thoughts most likely holds great significance in the full picture. We need each part… So speak up.
Trudy is heading to the beach on what seemed like a school trip to swim and to play in the sand. (The pursuit of knowledge taken out of the classroom… that’s a good thing) When she arrives she sees a ‘tub’ of some sort and as she looks into it she sees that it is filled with tiny beings that she realizes are children. (As Trudy spoke the dream to me I immediately saw this tub as a womb, she later came up with the same thought before I shared my own.) She is sad as she first thinks these lives are all dead, but then she sees tiny bubbles rising and she realizes they are actually breathing under water, but they are weak. (Life left too long in the “womb”… were meant to be born long -ago, but for some reason were not. And yet, they hold onto life and are able to stay alive in adverse conditions.) Tremendous anger rises up in her as she realizes these ones were not supposed to be in the tub as long as they have been and she tries to get them out. (This reveals part of the call upon Trudy’s life and one of the gifts the Lord has given her by allowing her to see what most cannot/will not. She also has a compassionate heart after the Lord and is gifted as a proponent of the forgotten and forsaken.) She repeated to me how angry she was in her dream as she was trying to get a hold of someone from the school (The school could partly represent the church, or an entity who should have been responsible for the children but chose to forget them) to find out why they left these babies/children. She could not remember the name of the school exactly, but she felt it was significant… all she could think to say that was close to the real name was “tamarilla”. (I looked up the word and the closest was ‘tamarillo’ which is a tomato-like fruit that originated in South America, but has been greatly cultivated here in NZ… I believe NZ was the leading exporter of this fruit until a couple years ago when most of the trees in NZ were taken out by a disease, it appears that the name ‘tamarillo’ was created so as not to confuse it with its cousin the tomato. The “tama” part of the word is Maori for “leadership”. Somehow the “leadership” went wrong and these wee dear ones were left to fend for themselves rather than being cared for and nurtured properly; they were left for dead.) She gets one of them out and sets the child on the beach but it is very weak, gaunt. She feels angry that they were forgotten and has a sense that these lives were intended for something very significant, but were not allowed to become who they were meant to be; in fact seemed deliberately forgotten/neglected. They were left to flounder for life in the tub and should have been strong and healthy and vibrant, playing and having fun in the air and the ocean and in the sand. (As she spoke this part I felt it touch on a sore area in my own life where I have felt neglected and unnoticed by others whom I thought should/would “See” me and help me move forward into my call and destiny, but feel like I’ve been left to flounder alone and unprepared. It’s as if they can’t “See”. Trudy is one that has “seen”. She had “seen” us when others have not, and has tried to assist us in moving past the ‘womb’ stage. I don’t blame the ones who haven’t “Seen”, but feel the dream gives insight on how to intercede for them… that the enemy has distracted or distorted our vision from seeing the picture rightly… it has been misinterpreted and I have been neglected, but so have they, because they too have been cut off from their destiny, which is partly to scoop up these little lives and feed and nurture them into their callings… this will cause those that are currently unable to “See” also to be fulfilled. Ironically, I also recognize that the role can be reversed and at times I’m the neglected child, unnoticed and alone, and sometimes I’m the “leadership” who has been blinded and miss what I should “See”.)
As Trudy was processing the dream (later on) and praying about it the only other bit of information she felt given to her was “it’s the six babies!”… as in the 3 sets of twins we spoke of at our prayer meeting on Wednesday when I told her about the twin dream Polly had several years ago. (The “twin dream” was dreamed by Polly just before we moved here to New Zealand… at the time she was early pregnant with Brekken… She dreamed that she, Marcy, and myself were pregnant with twins at the same time… Marcy and I with boy-girl twins and Polly with boy-boy twins. Her dream added to a long-held dream of having twins that we have individually carried in our hearts for many years now. That desire within us to have twins has obviously not come to fruition, and each of us are further from that as a possibility than ever before, and have been sorely disappointed by the subject constantly on our spiritual journeys… feeling it was a promise from the Lord, but not seeing it fulfilled.
I believe the babies/children in the tub could literally be the twins AND ALSO symbolized by what the twins mean… aka words/dreams/destinies from heaven that have been planted in our hearts but remained there for an overly long time… they have all but become dead, and are barely remaining alive. The time of their ‘birth’ has been prolonged beyond its intended time. AND YET “God works all things for good for those who love Him and are called according to His purpose.”
The fact that the ‘babies’ looked more like ‘children’ to Trudy but still remained in the womb also points to a longer-than-usual gestation.
This dream is Hope-filled first because Truth in a matter is being revealed! We will be given specifics on how to pray and intercede on behalf of these precious lives–whether it be literal twins or dreams that have been forsaken and unfulfilled or individual destinies (both ours and others in the Body)–and also pray that the eyes of the ‘leaders’ who need to See will SEE!
As I was speaking to Betsy (sister) about the dream she had the revelation that there are “Leaders” out there who were meant to come alongside these children and scoop them up and feed them and strengthen and encourage them on their journeys, but so far, any who might have been able to help these Destined and Special lives have shunned them because they did not appear to have anything to offer… they did not appear to be important for any reason… so those that would have been able to help them, have not. Again, the dream reveals HOPE as it WAS revealed to ONE, that ONE being represented by Trudy in the dream, and I believe more Mothers and Fathers in the Faith will be awakened to the needs of these lives and rise up and scoop them up and help ‘birth’ them into their callings and destinies. We pray that eyes be opened to See and that Grace and Clarity and Resources and Holy-Passion be awakened in the leaders the Lord has chosen to help usher these lives into their callings and destinies. That the enemy’s plans to snuff out or even just disable these lives from walking in their callings would be thwarted and these lives would be appropriately birthed and fed and nurtured so that they would be restored and quickly catch up in their development.
I have also thought this dream could point to the obvious long-fought battle over the forsaken and forgotten unborn and abandoned via abortion… the babies in this dream are not dead… this of course could then apply to literal babies that are still alive within their mother’s wombs, but to whom death is near as their mothers are barely holding on to their lives and considering/hoping for their death. Again, lots of layers to this dream and many things I believe it points to, but bottom line… There are LIVES (including DREAMS) that were given life by God but have been incubating beyond their time and are now being revealed so they can be birthed and brought into the Light to play and adventure in this world where they were destined to be.)
I think this dream is significant for each of us as individuals (for the callings on our own lives and dreams long-dreamed) as well as for many others in the Body that have been (or felt) forsaken… in some cases we will be the babies awaiting someone to pull us up and out… In this case we cry out for the life within us to rise up and be restored, we also intercede on behalf of the leadership in the The Body that was meant to come along side us and nurture us as we go to be released from the stupor the enemy has put upon them through blindness or distraction or confusion or just blatant lies.
In other cases we will be the ‘leaders’ given eyes to See forsaken lives/dreams around us that we will scoop up and come along-side and nuture and encourage as they are birthed into their callings… these ones are overlooked and do not appear to have anything to offer, but we will “See” them for what they are and have a deep compassion over them and even a righteous anger that rises up as we see the injustice of their circumstances. We will reveal what has been hidden and overlooked so that others who will have eyes to See can/will be awakened to Help creating a momentum that will birth many long-held dreams and individuals into the world where they can/will thrive and bring Joy-Life-Creativity-Flavor-etc. to this world.
Let it be so.
ALSO… If ever anything like this dream or otherwise feels overwhelming… Don’t worry about it… Just let it be, and fall back on the basics… Like “seek first the Kingdom”… Meaning, we don’t have to figure anything out or worry about anything, our focus and attention are on Him and He will direct our hearts at the right times. For now, this dream has stirred something in my own heart for all of you, and I feel the privilege of interceding on your behalf and on behalf of others that come to mind.

Marcy’s Beautiful Comments:
This dream has touched my heart in this new place where I am walking. I have been praying specifically for young adults i.e. teenagers who are lost and afraid to trust in God. I have seen with my eyes and with my heart so many children that are left in a harsh system and feel unwanted. The so-called system that we live in IE school, church, sports …..families, has in some ways killed our youth and THIER dreams. I am noticing a pressure that the world and parents put on their children to become something THEY feel is important or successful. But in reality these children were created for something more. Because the pressure is too much for them, they are left with unfulfilled dreams and a deep longing to live life differently than what the system tells us we are supposed to do. This causes a death in the spirit and will. Some children are rising up and fighting against the system. But I am noticing anger is leading this fight. Others do not know how To fight and feel they are drowning.
This is frustrating to so many of us. That is where anger comes in. Anger against the system and anger against others who will not see or notice these children.( as in Trudys frustration when no one would help these children and they were left to die)
I am learning so much from my own child who was dying in this system tub. He is such a fighter and has pushed me into seeing how broken our belief systems and ridged mind sets have been. Also, this young 18 year old boy, that is living with us has shown me how lost some of our youth is, because so many parents have wounds of addictions and selfishness rooted within.
This tub has so many precious children in it that need to know they are WANTED AND VALUED!!!! I feel like that is the prayer that breaks through the system. This culture of death. If we are SHOWING each child, dignity and respect of knowing they are truly loved and valued, that intercessory prayer Can help pull each child out if the tub.
I know there is more but that’s all I can say for now.
I still want my twins!!!😜
Heather’s Profound Insights:
In response to Trudy’s dream, I was in the same vein as Tica. The living babies represent dreams that are on life support. They are boxed in. Their diagnosis is failure to thrive. But the ocean of His love in near. It is waiting for our lives to be drenched in the life of wonder.
