Dreams

. .. . . . . .. . . . . . .. . . . . . . ..
I snuggle closer, to my sleeping husband, and breathe...a deep sigh of relief.

Shew! Thankfully, it was just a dream.  A dream that had gone from bad to worse. 

Isn't this the way it goes - more often then not- the ones in our sleep?  They are either really bad, extremely interesting or completely an all-out-wacko sort of dream - leaving you very unsettled.  Very rarely are they ~ SWEET, which  is what we often wish each other before falling off to sleep, don't we? 

Sweet dreams!

What about the day-dreams?  The "dreams" we dream for our future(s) and the ones for our kids? 

While living "the dream"....Do you ever wish you could just "wake up" and it would all be over, because the said dream wasn't turning out as sweetly as hoped?

I have had those moments.

And, then. I realize...

Wait. I'm not the one who is writing the dream-story, here.  God is.  I am only the one who lives it or (re)tells it. 

By no means, am I an expert on dreams.  Dream interpretation.  Dreamy ideas.  Or the Whys and Wherefore's of dreams.  But, I do know that sometimes dreams have meanings.  They're often meant to tell us something.  They might even be meant to get our attention, in some way or another. 

The question is, are we listening? 

If we're in the middle of that 'life-sized-not-so-sweet-nightmarish-dream", and God is Sovereign, which we know he is, because his Word tells us so, then we can rest at ease, knowing He is there to comfort us and hold us through it all. 

****
Psalm 121

My help comes from the Lord...

{He is} the Maker of heaven and earth.

He will not let your foot slip - he who watches over you will not slumber; indeed, he who watches over Israel with neither slumber nor sleep.
The Lord watches over you -  the Lord is your shade at your right hand; the sun will not harm you by day, nor the moon by night.
The Lord will keep you from all harm -  he will watch over your life; the Lord will watch over your coming and going both now and forevermore.

  4. It's so important to stay in the word. Exactly for this reason. He reminds us who is in control. He reminds us that He loves us and protects us and guides our feet. And that He has a plan...

    A beautiful post and reminder.

    Blessings, Debbie
