Not Doze at Time of Opportunity

May the people of God be stirred to awaken to the light of Christ who shows them the path away from fraud and error. May they awaken from all sense of slumber and not doze at time of opportunity.   “Wake up from your sleep, Climb out of your coffins; Christ will show you the light!” (Eph. 5:14, Msg)

Dreams and Thought-Clutter

Self-to-Self dreams can clean house by flashing scenes from our life into dreams so we can gather and toss “thought-clutter” and have a clean start the next day.  Scientists and doctors have proven these kind of dreams are a nightly reset that de-clutters the mind and de-stresses the mind.  Since stress is the starting point for many, if not most health issues, the ability to dream self-to-self is healthy. The Hebrew word for dream is chalam (khay lem), which means to strengthen or restore to health or facilitate recovery.  Any way you look at it, dreaming is a blessing from the Lord.  Even nightmares or upsetting dreams or bizarro dreams can be a positive because they bring things stored in our core closet out to the living room where we can be aware of them and we can confront them for relief or resolve. (Fourth excerpt from Kathy’s article “Considering Dreams and Visions”.)

Our Guardian Never Sleeps

man in yellow fieldAs the people of God assemble today, may there be reports spoken of what God IS doing and conversations about what seems to NOT be happening be muted. May it be known that God is speaking and God is acting in behalf of His people for the sake of His purposes.
“He won’t let you stumble, your Guardian God won’t fall asleep. Not on your life! Israel’s Guardian will never doze or sleep. (Ps.121:3-4, Msg)
