Day 27: It's Not a Dream


The sun came up before I did this morning,

but I thought I was up.

Let me explain.

Did you ever dream something

yet thought it actually happened~

because

when you wake up

you are still

"feeling" what happened~

but only to discover it was

just a dream?

Whether it was

a good dream

or

a bad dream,

but it is a

dream that you can't forget

because it is

written on your heart.

Well this sounds silly

because

when I finally woke up

I was filled with

Peace

because of something that I read

something that I wrote

something that I posted

when actually it was

something that I never wrote

something that I never posted

because it was just a dream~

but so real

that I can still feel it

and

I want to recreate it

and

write what I never really did write

but I forgot it~

even though it was so real

because

I got the message.

I have the

peace that transcends all understanding

His

peace

and that is all that matters.

So maybe that was what the dream was all about...

But does it really matter how

His message is delivered

whether

in a book

in a dream

in a devotion

in an answer to prayer?

What matters is that

you matter

to Him

and

He always has something to say.

I wish I could re~read what I wrote and read in my dream

but

now I just have to stop looking back

to figure it out

to recreate it

and

Be still

And know that

He is (Psalm 46:10)

always

writing a message on

our hearts

and on our minds

because

it is quite simple~

He knows

what you need

when you need it

He supplies

what you need

when you need it

He is

what you need

when you need it

because

it is all about Him

and not about me

and not about you.

So the sun woke up

before I did this morning

but did it really,

because

I was awake

way before the sun

while I was sleeping

because I thought I was awake

because He was writing a message

on my heart

and it was so real.

I may not remember

but I will always remember

that

He always has something to say

and that is

always exactly what I need to hear.

What message do you need to hear from God?

What message do you need for Him to write on your heart and mind?

Just

Listen

Just

Look up

and

Just

Let

the peace of Christ rule in your hearts, since as members of one body you were called to peace.

And be thankful. Colossians 3:15

and

Just

Live

out this day

and

Seek peace and pursue it Psalm 34:14

His Peace

the peace of God,

which transcends all understanding, will guard your hearts and your minds in Christ Jesus. Philippians 4:7

Because It is there

because

His Peace

isn't a dream,

it is a reality

because

the sun always comes out

before you do~

even while you are sleeping.

because

He is always there.

You will keep in perfect peace those whose minds are steadfast, because they trust in You.

Isaiah 26:3
