Last week I had a dream or a vision of sorts while I was still half awake/half asleep in bed before getting up for work. I saw a scene of my overpacked armoire closet stuffed with my clothes that I just changed over for the season (Here in the East Coast, we have 4 seasons and we have to put away our Summer clothes to get ready for the colder change in temperatures.)
I saw my stuffed closet in this vision and on top of the rack of clothes was a little butter yellow book with the words, “Only Jesus” on it, written in attractive script lettering. My eyes went to the book which I pulled out of the closet to take a closer look, and then the vision ended. And then the old hymn, “Only Jesus” came before me as I pondered the dream. The verses read something like this: “I’ve found a refuge from life’s care in Jesus; I am hiding in His love divine; He fully understands My soul’s deep longing, and He whispers softly, “Thou Are Mine” Only Jesus, Only Jesus., Only He can satisfy; Every trial becomes a blessing, when My Savior Lord is nigh.”
And I knew my Lord was reminding me to keep focus on Him above all things. … above Everything as only He satisfies our souls longings. Another thing that caught my attention in this vision was the color of that book being a soft butter yellow with attractive lettering. You see, several years ago He spoke to me through a necklace hanging in that very armoir that has the words, “Be Mine” on it. It is the same color with attractive lettering. I was looking for that necklace to wear with an outfit I would wear and those words “jumped out” at me as I saw that necklace, and I heard His voice speak those same words to me in my heart.. The closet itself is significant because the doors represent a “coming out” … Hearing His voice call us individiually , one by one to Himself, and us not only hearing Him ,but coming OUT of where we are to Him.. to become HIS alone. The verse in that hymn, “He whispers softly, “Thou Art Mine” was further confirmation and reminder for me.
