Day 8: Truthfully Free


Last night I had a dream

well actually

every night I have a dream

because this brain of mine

never stops.

It was one of those dreams,

you know,

the ones where

you are sleeping, but awake

questioning is this real or just a dream.

But this dream was

very different

very powerful

as I would wake up

and chew on the words that were spoken to me

then go back to sleep

to continue the dream

and again

I would hear the same words

and all I had to do was receive them

for free

like a

Free Sample

no questions asked

just grab and go.

But how can this be

for me?

It sounds too easy

It sounds too wonderful

I agreed with what was said~

yet was this for me?

My dream

wasn't a dream at all

because it was about

The Truth

the truth that will set you free. John 8:32

Yup, this really was my dream.

Maybe I was writing in my dream,

I don't know,

but it was so clear

with a message

that I had to take it

and have to share it~

the Truth

that

will set you free.

I got excited

that it was

free

and all I was asked to do was to take it,

yet I hesitated,

because it was too easy.

So I chewed on the words again

that were handed to me on a silver platter~

I knew that I have been set free

I knew

the truth~

the truth that has set me free..

Once and for all Free...

but of course I questioned it

because I didn't feel free.

Well

I was told it wasn't about feelings

because it is about

Truth

and

Truth

is just that~

Truth.

There is no reason to try to even debate

Truth~

Truth for me

Truth for you

Truth delivered right from

Him~

for Free

Free to believe

Free to receive

without hesitation

Free at His expense.

So why don't we just eat it immediately like we do the free samples,

instead of of complicating it?

Is it just too easy, because it is Free ~

Free to

Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Matthew 11:28

Free to

Cast all your anxiety on Him because He cares for you. I Peter 5:7

Free to

"Don't be afraid; just believe." Mark 5:36

Free to

Believe

what Jesus said~

“If you hold to my teaching, you are really my disciples,

then you will know the Truth...

then

He said it

in my "real" dream

as I can still hear the words~

and the truth will set you free.” John 8:32

The

truth

that is

free

because

it cost Him everything

at His expense

which makes

it

Free

for you

and for me.

As tears fill my eyes

because

the reality of this dream is so real

reminding me to stop complicating

this

Free Truth

that is more than just a

Free Sample

because

He is so much more than a sample

He is so much more than a dream

Because

He is

the way,

and the truth,

and the life.

No one comes to the Father except through me. John 14:6

The

Free Truth

So

if the Son sets you free

you will be free indeed. John 8:36

I thank God

for reminding me again

in my dream

to just

Receive

The truth

&

all

His Truths

that are handed to us on a silver platter

for

Free

to eat

without hesitation

no questions asked

Taste and see that the Lord is good; blessed is the one who takes refuge in Him. Psalm 34:8

So

let's

wake up

because

it's not a dream

and that is

The Truth.

My mind finds hard to believe

That You became humanity

and changed the course of history,

Because You loved me so.

And my heart cannot understandWhy

You'd accept me as I am,

But You say You've always had a plan,

And that's all I need to know

.So when I am consumed by what the world will say,

It's then You're singing to me,

as You remove my chains-

Free from worry,

free from envy and denial

Free to live, free to give,

free to smile
