While We Sleep

From time to time while sleeping, I like most of us have Dreams.  Some of the dreams are sort of weird, and can most likely be attributed to things I’ve seen during my day, or something I have eaten…. but shortly after getting up for the day, I quickly forget what I ever dreamed .

But then there are those dreams that are so vivid and that have so many intricate details.  With those dreams I remember every little detail, color, and smell. Because every aspect of that dream has a meaning.  I call these “Dreams with  purpose.”

Some of our dreams we immediately know the purpose. While others are not so clear. But one thing for sure there IS a purpose… and God wants to get something accomplished through us or someone else.

If you have ever had a dream that is still awaiting fulfillment and you are looking to our great God to bring it to pass. After all, Psalm 138:8 says: “The Lord will accomplish what concerns me.” Nothing is impossible with him.

I have a word for you:  What God initiates, He accomplishes!  In His time!

Remember Joseph.  Joseph had a big dream when he was seventeen( Genesis 37-46) one he had to hold onto until he was thirty. It would come to pass “despite” all the obstacles, because the dream came from God.

In the end, every detail came to pass. That’s probably why Joseph could forgive his brothers, recognizing that God used every obstacle to his benefit in fulfilling his divine destiny.

We shouldn’t worry about whether dreams are impossible or not.  When GOD is the author of the dream, it will come to pass.  In His way; and in His time.

You Will Get There

Nothing will stop God’s plan or frustrate His purpose for our lives. Not one thing ever takes Him by surprise concerning us. He knows the future and is already there. He knows where He is leading our lives and knows just how to get us there! Be encouraged!

“Behold, I am the Lord, the God of all flesh: is there anything too hard for me?”
Jeremiah 32:27

Brand New Day

As you begin this beautiful day, commit it to the Lord. Place your plans at His feet. Thank Him for His mercies, praise Him for His kindness, and trust Him for His unending grace.

He already knows the needs that we will face today and He has already taken care of it.

“His compassions fail not. They are new every morning; Great is Your faithfulness.” Lamentations 3:22-23

Have You Ever?

I have asked myself this question numerous times. Where would I be if I couldn’t be forgiven? Whew! Just the thought sends shivers up my spine.

Just knowing that we are forgiven for sin of the past, is enough to make us shout for joy!

Are you running yet?

And it gets better. Today we are delivered from sin’s present power over our lives, this is sanctification. And the best news, is knowing that one day we will be in heaven, out of the presence of sin. Glory Hallelujah!

Yes, we definitely have much to be grateful for….

“Bless the Lord, O my soul, And forget not all His benefits: Who forgives all your iniquities, Who heals all your diseases, Who redeems your life from destruction, Who crowns you with lovingkindness and tender mercies.” Psalm 103:2-4

Work of Art

“We are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works.” Ephesians 2:10

Jesus Christ gave everything to make a beautiful mosaic of love within His church. We who believe in Jesus Christ are a work of art created by Father God.

Yes, even with the broken pieces of our lives, He created a masterpiece.
