When the Nightmares Come

A terrible nightmare woke me up at 2:30 last night and kept me awake the rest of the night. What is the cause of nightmares? When I look at the elements of most of my nightmares they center around trying to stop things that I seem powerless to stop. In other words control.

How do any of us reach the place we trust God with the good, bad, and really ugly? Here are some clues:

Genesis 50:…19But Joseph said to them, “Do not be afraid, for am I in God’s place? 20“As for you, you meant evil against me, but God meant it for good in order to bring about this present result, to preserve many people alive.

No matter the circumstances, God’s will is accomplished.

Matthew 9:20And a woman who had been suffering from a hemorrhage for twelve years, came up behind Him and touched the fringe of His cloak; 21for she was saying to herself, “If I only touch His garment, I will get well.”…22Jesus turned, and seeing her he said, “Take heart, daughter; your faith has made you well.” And instantly the woman was made well.

God rewards those who earnestly and persistently seek him!

Philippians 4:12I know how to get along with humble means, and I also know how to live in prosperity; in any and every circumstance I have learned the secret of being filled and going hungry, both of having abundance and suffering need. 13I can do all things through Him who strengthens me.…

My ability to be content in every circumstance is dependent upon Christ, not my own works.

 

Proverbs 3:…7Do not be wise in your own eyes; Fear the LORD and turn away from evil. 8It will be healing to your body And refreshment to your bones.

Sin is deadly! When I am clearly aware of the sovereignty of God over my circumstances my nightmares have no place to breed anger, control, anxiety, etc.!

 

Thank you God for scripture to remind me of your truth! Amen

I lost my son to suicide. Each day since, I commit my day to turning the page and continuing to write my story. There is no deeper grief, but I know too, that there is no greater hope than bringing life out of death. I offer each page to you as a testimony that there is hope for abundant life!
