Meaning of a Vision

Some time ago my wife and I were worshiping with other believers and I was just standing still with my eyes closed. My desire was for the Lord to show me how to worship, I had been part of church for so long that I wanted to renew what it was like to be church. I had been part of worship for so long that I wanted to renew what it was like "to worship".

During this time of waiting on the Lord, I received this vision. My eyes were closed and I was concentrating on the Lord and I saw when I tipped my head down that my chest was the chest of a Horse. Sweat was moving down over the muscles as they were twitching. I was not standing, but running as fast as I can. I could feel the air flowing through my mane and every step with the earth was like I was part of it. The earth was moving by at a pace so fast I could only see the blur of the tall grass that I was running through.

I felt so free! I was just starting to enjoy that freedom when I suddenly came upon a big cliff. I stopped dead in my tracks. For a moment I hesitated. Then, almost not even knowing why I did it, it was almost like something drove me to turn around, ride back for a couple hundred yards and take another shot. THIS TIME I JUMPED! I could feel myself in the air for what seemed like eternity and then I felt a sharp thud. The sound of a hoof meeting dirt hit my ears and at the time I felt that I made it to the other side.

For weeks after I felt that this vision had to do with me. This morning when I woke up, I realized that I was pursuing something and compassion was that uncontrollable desire that turned me around and pushed me to jump.
