I found myself standing on what seemed like a mountain top. I was heading to a new place and had to choose which road I would take. To my right I could see a road that would continue ascending up and around this mountain. To the left was another road that would go down into the place where I was to go. This road was made of a wooden structure. Like perhaps the framework of a new building that was being constructed. I could see and sense the few others that had gone this road before. Two choices were set before me and now I needed to choose which one to take.
However, as I continued to draw my eyes closer to this low road, I could see that it had a brush of white snow and ice on it. Knowing that even though this road was shorter it would be more of a risk to take. I decided to take this way and as soon as the vehicle that I was driving started to descend on it, I found in my hands a large red shovel. The blade on this would be used to push and clear away the snow and ice as I continued down this steep, risky and unknown road set before me.
My friends, Holy Spirit who is in you is wanting you to now choose to either follow His leading that is going to take you to a new road, less followed which is a riskier and new way to go or you can choose to stay on the road you have been use to following. The old road which is the old way you have been travelling on in hopes it will take you to where you need to go.
We will need to either choose the old and higher road or the lower road that is shorter yet riskier to follow. The high road to me looked easier yet it would take me longer to get to my destination. Just like when the Israelites chose to take the long way around to the Promised Land rather than obeying God who would have taken them to their much sooner.
I saw in this dream that as soon as I placed my vehicle that I was travelling in ( the move of Holy Spirit), I would be given the very tool that I would need to push through and clear away any obstacles set before me. I had chosen the right path to now follow. I was now descending and it was being made easy for me to continue on.
This dream was given to me the night before my trip to Dallas. I had no clue that my first flight to take me off the Island would be cancelled. I was in shock when I was informed of the change of my original plans. We quickly drove to the helijet in hopes that they would be able to fly me over to the mainland just in time to catch my next flight, straight to Dallas. We thought this would be the next way to go to my next destination as they use instruments to fly and so the thick fog would not affect the helicopter from flying across the waters to the mainland of Vancouver. Unfortunately, they too decided it was too risky to take this chance and so all flights in the morning would also be cancelled. We decided to drive back home and I would call my travel agent to see what she could do for me.
Church the framework in my dream here is about the Church. The New Church that is to go the New Way with God! You’ll find it in Exodus 26:26-28
At first, all seemed hopeless. She wasn’t the travel agent that my husband and I usually use to book our plans. This lady was new to me and at first, She didn’t seem to want to help me. Then suddenly her demeanor changed and she was now eager to help me. Within 10 min. she called me back with a new set of plans for me to take. These plans though different and not what I had originally hoped to take would turn out to be the best way for me to go from here. All of the trouble that I had endured such as the change of plans and the frustrations that it had caused…all expenses would be covered! Double for my trouble! God is so good to us!
Thank you Jesus for my new sermon!
So what seems hopeless my friends. What seems like all is lost. God is wanting you to know that He is doing a new thing and a new way but many will not be able to let go of the old to make way for the new. I encourage you to let go and let God work it out for you. It will be much better than you could ever hope for. He is wanting us to fully trust in His plans and His leading from here on.

The middle bar shall pass through the midst of the boards from end to end.”

26 “Also make crossbars of acacia wood: five for the frames on one side of the tabernacle, 27 five for those on the other side, and five for the frames on the west, at the far end of the tabernacle. 28 The center crossbar is to extend from end to end at the middle of the frames.
