I HAD A DREAM LAST NIGHT THAT I WENT TO MY FATHER'S HOUSE WITH MY CHILDREN AND AS I LOOKED UP AT THE SKY THE CLOUDS WERE ROLLING. I KNEW A STORM WAS COMING AND FAST SO I TOLD MY CHILDREN TO GET DOWN IN THE CAR AND WE GOT AS LOW AS WE COULD. WHEN THE STORM HAD PASSED THE CAR WAS GUTTED; IT WAS JUST A FRAME BUT WE WERE OKAY. I DROVE MY FATHER'S OLD TRUCK TO MY HOME AND THE CHILDREN AND I BEGAN TO GET OUT AND HEAD BACK INTO MY HOUSE. I WOKE UP AND I WAS LIKE LORD WHAT WAS THAT?...WHAT DOES THAT MEAN. GOD TOLD ME TO LOOK OVER THE DREAM. MY FATHER'S HOUSE IS WHERE I USED TO LIVE. WHEN I LEFT; I LEFT BECAUSE GOD TOLD ME TO LEAVE AND I LEFT WITH URGENCY. NO MATTER LIFE'S STORMS WE CAN FIND SAFETY IN GOD. IF WE COME BEFORE HIM IN HUMILITY THERE IS NO SAFER PLACE; NO MATTER WHAT IS GOING ON OUTSIDE. IF GOD DELIVERED YOU FROM SOMETHING DON'T GO BACK TO IT; STAY DELIVERED. THERE ARE SOMETHINGS I STILL WANT, THAT I SHOULDN'T WANT BUT IF IT WILL LEAVE MY LIFE LOOKING LIKE THE AFTERMATH OF A GREAT AND TERRIBLE STORM; I'LL PASS. RESIST TEMPTATION.
I LIKE TO USE SCRIPTURE WHILE BLOGGING. I LOOKED FOR A SCRIPTURE ABOUT STORMS AND I CHOSE THIS ONE BECAUSE GOD LED ME TO READ LEVITICUS 10 THIS MORNING WHICH TALKS ABOUT STRANGE FIRE
1 Woe to Ariel, to Ariel, the city where David dwelt ! add ye year to year; let them kill sacrifices.2 Yet I will distress Ariel, and there shall be heaviness and sorrow: and it shall be unto me as Ariel.3 And I will camp against thee round about, and will lay siege against thee with a mount, and I will raise forts against thee. 4 And thou shalt be brought down , and shalt speak out of the ground, and thy speech shall be low out of the dust, and thy voice shall be, as of one that hath a familiar spirit, out of the ground, and thy speech shall whisper out of the dust.5 Moreover the multitude of thy strangers shall be like small dust, and the multitude of the terrible ones shall be as chaff that passeth away : yea, it shall be at an instant suddenly.6 Thou shalt be visited of the LORD of hosts with thunder, and with earthquake, and great noise, with storm and tempest, and the flame of devouring fire.
