256 – Stay or Go Home
February 1, 1987 5am
Dan woke up with a vision of a jar with a vacuum in it—sucking his hands, rendering him helpless. It related to his friend in the mental institution. It struck fear into Dan’s heart. He felt it was definitely a warning to get out of this relationship. We obviously cannot help this friend.
I believe that Dan has been trying to save someone who does not want to be saved. And that this has put us in a place of impotency. It has clouded his present judgment.
Such a tragic situation for this couple and for the rest of us. But our God restores.
Dan has been talking of leaving Elim in the middle of this semester. He had thought of not signing up for any classes at all so we could leave easily. As he shared this I felt peace though I was a little dismayed at moving on so soon from this wonderful place.
Show us the way, Lord.
Psalm 34:1 I will bless the Lord at all times; His praise shall continually be in my mouth.
7 The angel of the Lord encamps all around those who fear Him, and delivers them.
O LORD, lead me in Your righteousness because of my foes; make Your way straight before me. Psalm 5:8
