Dreams

Poetry

I’ll dream a dream of heaven brightOf merry souls full of light
I’ll dream a dream that sparks my soul

Of smiles revealing all untold
I’ll dream a dream of visions true

Of things to come with me and you

Hope

Poetry

I needed a new pictureOne of truth 

One that would not deceive

You grabbed Your brush

Painted new dreams

And brought real hope to me
Psalm 37:4
Take delight in the LORD, and he will give you the desires of your heart.
Psalm 20:4,5
4May he give you the desire of your heart and make all your plans succeed.

5May we shout for joy over your victory and lift up our banners in the name of our God. May the Lord grant all your requests.

Get Higher

Thoughts

Several years ago I had a dream.  In my dream, I was kind of hopping through the treetops and I could see everything going on down below from a higher vantage point.  What I saw below was like an obstacle course.  It was very very busy and noisy.  There were swinging ropes and tunnels and mazes.  It was nighttime but bright neon lights were everywhere.  It looked exciting and fun but also potentially dangerous.  And as I was looking at it all, I wondered how I would ever know which course to take.    

Some dreams, and I have a ton, just stick with me and that has been one of them.  And often times I can see the parallels between my life and that dream.  It is so full of activity and choices.  It is full of possibilities, both good and bad.  But when I am walking the ground down below and all I can see is the obstacle right in front of me, I lose sight of the bigger picture and have trouble deciding which way to go.  So maybe that is when I go to the treetops.  Get up higher to see the bigger picture.  Get to a place where the noises are quieter, the lights are softer and the perspective is bigger and clearer.

So how do I get to the treetops?

Mark 1:35

“And in the morning, rising up a great while before day, he went out, and departed into a solitary place, and there prayed.”

Psalms 91:1

“He that dwelleth in the secret place of the most High shall abide under the shadow of the Almighty.”

Isaiah 55: 9

“For as the heavens are higher than the earth, So are My ways higher than your ways And My thoughts than your thoughts.…”

Isaiah 30:21

“Whether you turn to the right or to the left, your ears will hear a voice behind you, saying, “This is the way; walk in it.”
