Distractions Along Your Path

During my daily devotion time today, I recorded two dreams that I had last night and I’d like to share them with you.  The first one I remember went like this…When I arrived at my house, I noticed a haggard looking man wearing a blue shirt standing outside my front door.  I noticed my front door was ajar, so I went in to find my house totally ransacked.  The television in the living room was missing, which I thought must have been stolen.  All the while I didn’t feel any fear or violation at what someone had done to my home.  I noticed a patio that is not present in the natural where I found my television had been smashed right in the middle of the screen. I went outside to the man to find out what happened.  He told me who had done this and what I needed to do in order to recover all.  At that moment I was shaken awake by a real earthquake.  

As soon as I woke up, I immediately pleaded the Blood of Jesus over our safety and God’s perfect will for our lives.  I came against every assignment of the enemy and asked God to reveal anything specific about His vision for me that the enemy is trying to steal/smash.

The second dream: My daughter and I were driving down 23rd street and there was a woman in a wrecked car with her two sons that swerved right in front of us blocking us from moving forward.  My daughter and I were patient and began talking to each other, then the car in front of us was just gone all of a sudden.  We proceeded on and came up to a moving truck, so we had to wait to continue moving forward again.  Then I was awakened by another earthquake.  Yes, two in one night.

As soon as I woke up, I again asked God to allow us to recognize any distractions on our journey to follow His will.  I also thought of Psalms 23:3, where David says that God leads him down paths of righteousness for His name’s sake.  Since we were riding down 23rd street, I spoke that promise out loud in declaration of our lives.  

Do you believe that our dreams have meaning and God can help us along our journey?  I certainly do!  I just pray that God reveals to me in anyway He pleases as to the direction of my life, because I am a sheep in need of The Shepard that knows all.  Feel free to share any dreams that have caused you to ponder the meaning.  Please check out a dream interpretation book that can assist us with our dreams by clicking on the link to the right http://dougaddison.com/store/books/understand-your-dreams-now/

A Refreshing New Start In Life’s Journey Part Two

Once I realized that writing would be an avenue that God would allow me to pursue, I wished I could have been doing this a long time ago.  But you know what?  God knows exactly what I am supposed to do and when I am supposed to do it.  I was just at a place in my life that it was time to simply Start and punch fear in the face, escape average and certainly do work that matters!  How Awesome!  I have gained the insight into one of many ways that produces great fulfillment.  Doing something towards your goals on a consistent bases.  I am not talking about once or twice over a month.  No, working at something on a consistent daily basis.  Setting small goals along the way to your even bigger goal.  These are things we know to be true, but sometimes it takes reading it somewhere to get you motivated.  I can’t speak for Mr. Acuff, but as for me I love to see people inspired by my life’s journey to the point that they want to seek out what God’s best is for their lives.  How awesome is that!  I mean God truly desires to commune with us on a daily basis to lead and guide us into what is purpose His for us on this earth.  To see the lightbulb go off in their eyes is breathtaking.  When we commune with God daily, we are taking those small steps into a much deeper relationship than we had the week, month and year before.  God has given us great gifts and desires, all we need to do is tap right into them while moving forward.  Since God is so awesome in His design for our lives, I have to believe that He has given us capacity to receive clear direction for our lives.  Now that is some good stuff!  acuff.me/books/
