You speak to me. You remind me who I am. You remind that I am loved....I am wanted....I am appreciated and that I am enough.
Last night I had a dream. Something was turning everyone literally blue. I don't mean an emotion. I mean the color blue. We weren't sure if it was in the water or what it was. I never saw the other "blue" people, so I didn't know what they looked like. People just seemed to disappear once they were blue. At one of part of the dream I was informed that I too was turning blue. There were no mirrors in this dream, so I couldn't see what I looked like. Everyone around me began to tell me their own version of what they saw me as. Some were frightened while others pointed and laughed. As you can imagine by the end of everyone's comments I was sure I looked like the blob from Scooby Doo. You know the one that was all slimy and gooey. I went to a corner of the building and cried. Then a gentle hand touched my shoulder. I turned around and looked into the face of my Father God. I never actually saw his face. Just felt his presence. It was kind of like how a movie only shows someone's arm, but you can tell the main character is looking at them and they know exactly who they are. He lifted my chin and wiped my tears from my face. He asked me, "Daughter why are you crying?" I could feel that he knew why. Mind you this whole time I never saw my face after I started turning blue. It was like it was in first person where I was looking out to everything . I began to cry again as I pour out my feelings about what everyone had said to me. He didn't laugh or scoff at my words. He just gently took my hand in his and said, "Come." I followed him quietly as he led me to this beautifully decorated room adorned in gold and jewels. I instantly knew it was his throne room. He led me to a table that was adorned with the most delicious looking food I had ever seen. He pointed to a gold-adorned mirror. I was hesitant, but picked it up slowly. As I looked in the mirror I was able to see my actual face for the first time and was shocked to see that I wasn't a blob. I was still me. I just looked like a blue smurf is all. I woke up after that. Two things came to mind when I woke up. First the verse "Long ago the LORD said to Israel: "I have loved you, my people, with an everlasting love. With unfailing love I have drawn you to myself." Jeremiah 31:3. God's love is everlasting. He won't quit on us like people do. He waits on us patiently and draws us to him with his love. And second, so many times we listen to all the voices around us that try to tell us who we are and if we are enough when God is sitting right there saying, "You are enough." Life can get hard and people can be downright mean. Even though in the dream when I felt totally alone and isolated I never really was. God appeared at just the perfect time and gently asked me to follow him so HE could show me who I really was. God is a gentleman. He's a gentle Father. He won't force himself on you. I urge you to seek him and find out you are IN HIM, because if you don't the world will tell you their OPINION of who THEY think you are. I hope my little dream helped you today. I will see you next week again on Wisdom Wednesday.
I love you all!
I know this is kicking it old school back to the days of my Commander Kellie and the Superkids days, but this is the song that came to my mind as I was writing this. Please enjoy!
I normally only do one video, but this one also came to my mind. I pray you have a wonderful week and please enjoy this song too.
