TO SLEEP PERCHANCE TO DREAM …

Old invitation on the grunge floral background

I have been known to have very vivid and sometimes disturbing dreams. Something seems to happen to my brain when it falls asleep. It’s like this alter-ego explodes inside my head, giving way to all the weirdness or creativity within me.

I usually go through some of these dreams when I’m writing a new play or if there’s something I’m struggling with in my life. These visions, which are concocted in the recesses of my mind, might help me come up with a solution to a plot line. They may help me see something in my life that needs prayer. Most of the time they cause me to wake up in a sweat and wonder where those thoughts came from.

Peaceful sleep can heal our bodies, give rest to our minds and even provide us with answers for daily problems. How comforting to know that God watches over us even when we close our eyes each night.

Proverbs 3:24 assures us, “If you lie down, you will not be afraid; when you lie down, your sleep will be sweet.”

Lord, there are times when I need you and I don’t even realize it. Thank you for clothing me in your protection 24/7. Thank you for giving me peaceful sleep, even when my mind is swimming with too much thinking and worry. Thank you for giving me time to rejuvenate my body and mind through rest and give me the peace that you are with me in all my hours on this earth.  Amen!

About atimetoshare.me

As I reach the end of my years, I find I have a lot of good information stored up in this old decrepit mind of mine. If I don't write it all down, it may vanish and no one will have the advantage of my thoughts. This is why this blog exists. I love the Lord, Jesus with all my heart and soul. I know I'm undeserving of all He's done for me, but I also know that His love is beyond my comprehension. I've always wanted to write. I never kept diaries, but tucked my thoughts in my head for future reference. I use them now in creating stories, plays, poetry and my blog. I continue to learn every day. I believe the compilation of our time spent with God will have huge affect on the way we live. I know I'm a sinner and I need a Savior. I have One through Jesus, Christ. My book, "Stages - a memoir," is about the seven stages of life from the perspective of a woman. It addresses all the things girls and women go through in life as they travel it with Jesus, and it is available on Amazon.com.

    Whew, I have this problem too sister! In fact (after spending over a decade in church without ever hearing the Gospel preached) when I got saved I had nightmares for over a year that I was still bound by sin. In my dreams someone would always say ‘see, you’re not saved.’ It was awful, but it did cause a lot of praise and renewed thankfulness to God for salvation when I awake and remembered he who the Son sets free is free indeed! Thankfully most of my dreams are just weird, but so realistic. Must be apart of the curse, I’ll be glad to be rid of them in eternity!
