This morning as I began to awake, I had been dreaming that I was searching for my car in a large parking lot and could not find it. There was a feeling of anxiety in my thinking until I awoke and realized it had only been a dream. It had felt so very real! Then I began to ponder on times when I had tried to pray but couldn’t due to the same feeling I had just experienced. Isn’t “awakening” needed to realize God is always in charge and we need only to humble ourselves and release human will to see what He is seeing, which is always harmony and perfection.
2 Corinthians 10:5 states ” We demolish arguments and every pretension that sets itself up against the knowledge of God, and we take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” We are never, ever separated from God and His wisdom.
Several days ago in the early morning, I was having an anxious dream where I was looking for a friend while on an escalator that I couldn’t get off. There was no end to it and it was moving rather fast and it seemed so very real. In my dream, the thought came to pray and the thought immediately following was “why don’t I just wake up?” Immediately I was awake remembering that uncomfortable dream.
Shortly after, I was reminded of the first verse of a song from our Hymnal we frequently sing in Church which states,
“O dreamer, leave thy dreams for joyful waking,
O captive, rise and sing, for thou art free:
The Christ is here, all dreams of error breaking,
Unloosing bonds of all captivity.”
Throughout the day, when anything negative tried to come into my thoughts, I just simply thought to wake up to the Truth and see what God sees, since you can rest assured it is not negative!
