Dream Followers Was this all before it came to be Only for God an idea, maybe a dream Until He was actually fully able to see His universe, our earth spinning His green ball, Pure, holy in the beginning Seeing our first steps, first words Before the lines between good & bad By us were so badly blurred I guess you could say God followed His dream So, Should today we say Follow your own human dream If we are created in His image To us we hear that this must seem A good thing, a right way To try & live each day Under our own imagination’s spell But wait, We are not our own god By us was not created This universe This earth we trod We’re part of a creation Not the Creator Let us not turn our lives Into an even greater aberration, Or abomination Seek God’s dream for our lives Thus, truly can we daily strive And find Truer joy, peace, contentment To give us more of this Was our Savior born & sent To show us the truly greatest way Over a lost world to hold full sway And more purely daily dream!
Night’s Dreams I’ve got to go to bed I’ve got to go to bed In the darkness I know I’m clearer It feels the best time I can get into my head, undisturbed Dreams cannot come into the busy dayness of a hurried world This night time’s Darkness is when You chose to drop Your wisest pearls And so I write In this middle of the night (I do not know why) Seems to bring forth, Induce, Out of dark obscurity Your heaven’s brightest lights Exhausted I fall back I am so very tired Yet feeling grateful To dream, Have my soul Thus inspired Beneath your loving hand!

It tears at my flesh,
My soul is reborn
Into a world of light.
No more running out of the night.
I thank you Gracious Lord again
For this glory of new life.
It runs downhill and up
In endless joyful flight!
I’ve talked before about dreams God has given me in the past. They’re always so vivid in color and details and so beautiful. I had another one a few nights ago. I was walking with Jesus down a street, and the sense of joy was so overwhelming. He was sharing His joy with me. It was fantastic. Always is. Anyway, we were walking down the street. I had sort of blondish hair, my hair is naturally dark although at my age I’m almost completely grey, and I was dressed very casually, more bohemian. We were walking down the street. People were walking by, and we were just sharing His joy with them, talking to them. It was a great dream.
My resolution for the beginning of this new year is to be reborn. The type of rebirth that Christ told Nicodemus about, to be born of water and the Spirit. I feel a need for this. I was born into darkness from which He has saved me. I pray you could get to know your Savior better this year also. He really is fantastic, beautiful and loves you so overwhelmingly! In Christ’s name Amen. Praise God!!
Music and in Living Color
Sometimes I have very vivid dreams. I was dreaming early this morning about my old job when all of a sudden without warning I was in the middle of a large group of black slaves. It was so vivid. It was like watching a movie. I could see everything so clearly. I don’t know why I was dreaming about this. Maybe from the Lord, maybe not.
Anyway, they had been loaded into the back of an open air wagon pulled by a horse. There was the sense they were in the process of being moved from one place to another, and they were singing this song. I could hear their rich, deep voices singing as they were riding down the road. It was this:
Oh, what do you do when you need Jesus? What do you do when you need Jesus? What do you do when you need Jesus?
Lord, take me home soon. Take me home soon.
Lord, take me home soon. Take me home soon.
The music was beautiful and the sound powerful. Everything was in color. The men were wearing white pants and shirts and the women were in colorful dresses, some in yellows, some in oranges with white kerchiefs around their necks. It was very moving. I could sense their pain.
I woke up and could not get the sound of the music, the words and their voices out of my head. In spite of their pain, they were looking to their Lord for their comfort.
Christ is everything. He is the Lord of this life and Lord of the next. In our pain, He wants to be close and intimate with you and be your comfort and to give you his power, strength and His joy. People talk so much about the gifts of the Spirit such as speaking in tongues, prophesying, teaching, giving generously, healing, but oh, the fruits of the Spirit.
Galatians 5:22 But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, forbearance, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control. Against such things there is no law. NIV
These are the core essence of the Living God. He is trying to turn us into Himself. Hallelujah, Praise God!! May He bless your day.
