"Dream of Praise"

Sunday, December 19, 2010, as I was taking an afternoon nap, I had a very powerful Holy Ghost dream.

I was standing with a group of people I didn't know (like in a public area) and suddenly I was caught up in something like a fish net.

The net was different from anything I'd ever seen before. I couldn't feel it. It didn't compress or push against me. It was clear like plastic wrap but glowed with light. It had no substance.

It enveloped me and I began to sing with praise the name of "Jesus", over and over again. No other words, just "Jesus".

As I began to sing I became very bold, crying out His name as loud as I could. I've never had a voice to sing but suddenly, there I was, singing clear, loud, in tune and with melody.

No one around me made a sound. They stood there oblivious to my experience, motionless, dull, flat, silent, having no consciousness of what was going on.

As I continued praising, I was lifted off of the ground just a few inches and hovered there. I wanted to go higher but continued praising Him there as I hovered just above the floor.

The dream suddenly ended and I woke up wondering what was going on.
