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!
