Last night, I was so excited I could not sleep. But yet, I wanted to go to bed so bad because I could not wait to wake up. I just wanted to skip sleep altogether. And if you know me at all, you know I love my sleep.
This life with Jesus is good, friends. Not perfect. Not always happy. Not easy. But good. Full. Abundant.
A newlywed friend texted me today that she felt like she still had not woken up from the most wonderful dream.
I responded YES! I pray you never do because THAT is living and walking with the Holy Spirit. In His Will and His Way!!!! The best dream we do not have to wake up from!!!
I did not want to sleep last night because honestly, my dreams are happening during the day. I wish I could tell all of you every thing and maybe one day I can.
But I can tell you this. I was dead. I was sleep walking. I shared recently the darkness of this time last year. My heart was at grave risk. I have been praying fiercely for my defibrillator and I am here today to tell you, the Holy Sprit gave me life. Wherever you are, struggling or thriving. Surviving or trying. He is here. I have so much to say. I have so much to tell you. That in itself is a miracle. But I will say this for now. He is real. You can trust Him. Ask Him. Cry out to Him. Believe Him. Praise Him. Thank Him. Talk to Him. Holy Spirit, empty me of myself and fill me with only You.
"If you love Me, keep My Commands. And I will ask the Father, and He will give you another advocate to help you and be with you forever— the Spirit of Truth. The world cannot accept Him, because it neither sees Him nor knows Him. But you know Him, for He lives with you and will be in you... the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My Name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have said to you. John 14:15-27
"Now the mind-set of the flesh is death, but the mind-set of the Spirit is life and peace." Romans 8:6
