And what do I dream of?
I had two dreams: The first dream was about a person who hurt me. I forgave her. She wasn't a Christian and I was. Then I had hurt someone else -- a little slight, mind you-- and she was a Christian and very rigid and very unforgiving. I sat in the dream amazed and stunned at how unforgiving this supposedly Christian could be, and how relentless in her unforgiveness. She was pretty mean to me and closed the door in my face although I begged her to forgive me.
The second dream was about psalm 70 and 71. A woman from church and I were reading it. Got up and read it: The verses that really touched me were:
Psalms 70: 4 May all those who seek you be happy and rejoice in you!
May those who love to experience your deliverance say continually, “May God be praised!”
Psalms 71: 8,
I praise you constantly and speak of your splendor all day long.
71:15 I will tell about your justice, and all day long proclaim your salvation, though I cannot fathom its full extent.
71:16 I will come and tell about the mighty acts of the sovereign Lord. I will proclaim your justice – yours alone.
71:17 O God, you have taught me since I was young, and I am still declaring your amazing deeds.
When we read these verse -- and depending on the translations-- we sometimes think of them as a plea to God, but they really can also be read as commands to the people of God.
So I feel as if I have been given a command, something that I must be obedient to and obey with every possible ounce of obedience
Really trying to work on my mouth.
