Almost every single day I wake up with very vivid dreams, and sometimes I instantly have been given meaning, and other times I have to research- which is something that I love to do. It is like solving a mystery. I am not sure why I love it so much, but God knows I do and so I guess this is how He talks to me. (He talks to us all uniquely- and His words always agree with scripture). Last night I had a very vivid set of dreams that led me to a study on gifts, blessings, the unforgivable sin, and just many different parts of scripture. I always research of course the things that stand out, and then I check my email because sometimes (amazingly) there are related devotionals to what I am studying. It is just truly amazing to me how God speaks to us. Truly nothing happens randomly. I wish that I could show people the amazing way He connects the happenings of my life to His teaching. For instance, last night I watched the 10th Kingdom and one line that stood out to me was “your as safe as a brick built pig house.” Well this morning, one item from my dream was a female pig- a sow, and I began by trying to understand why this pig was important. Every yahoo search led to “Reap and Sow” and sermons on the “Three Little Pigs.” Why was that important to me? Because the night before the particular line from the movie was from that exact story, and the entire movie is about fairy tales. Here lately that seems to be a theme in my dreams is the allegory in fairy tales. SO long story short, On my email i started by signing up for free devotionals from Dr. Charles Stanley, then ended up on crosswalk.com on his daily devotional then clicked on a page about the unforgivable sin (http://www.crosswalk.com/slideshows/10-things-you-need-to-know-unforgivable-sin.html?p=1) which is a fantastic read. As I was reading this, I also had open a browser to Dr. Stanley’s In Touch Ministries Site. I recommend reading some of his writings. Truly Inspirational. https://www.intouch.org/read/blog/the-fresh-start-effect
I love when all of the pages I click on seem to connect in a way that can only be God-Inspired learning. All the lessons coincide and I can look back over the last few days and see God putting these concepts and ideas into practice in my life. There are always a million little lessons, but it always ends on the most amazing conclusion: It leaves me with this sense of wonder that God is present in every single moment of my life, and sometimes gives me lessons on unspoken questions- things I have not said out loud b/c He truly knows me inside and out. For example, last night I was thinking about the Holy Spirit and how you know if you have them and I ended up in scripture on 1 Corinthians 3 telling me that I had Him. Then today I end up studying the unforgivable sin which I have been trying to understand for months. The study on the unforgivable sin led me to understand why i don’t completely understand the trinity- the absolute knowing that Jesus was God and the Holy Spirit is a manifestation of Him in our lives does not change simply because I do not understand it on an intellectual level. I don’t know if these musings help anyone, but I like/ love to share what I learn! Love to all!
