I love that song by Third Day. But lemme splain a little back story – cause today? It gave me a huge epiphany.
So last night I had this dream.
I was in an old church building just walking about; smiling, happy with those I come across. Everyone was so friendly and accepting to me. I loved it. That’s when I started noticing the people around me where morphing. Turning into zombies and vampires – basically whatever evil thing you can think of.
I freaked out and tried to run out of the building; but was caught by a birdlike creature and dragged into the main sanctuary. I fought and cause obviously I didn’t want to be eaten, started screaming, but ended up giving up my fight. It was falling on deaf ears.
In the sanctuary the chairs/pews/whatever were filling up like crazy, while I was being dragged through the aisles toward the front. In the front? was the weirdest thing.
In the front was the T.A.R.D.I.S. and inside was the 9th Doctor tied screaming “I didn’t mean for any of this to happen!” over and over.
Then slowly I noticed the chanting. The creatures were chanting in a different language worshipping the T.A.R.D.I.S. Then the one dragging me, stopped in front of the T.A.R.D.I.S.
“WORSHIP!” Came the evil voice.
Scared I screamed back: “No! This is wrong! This is not supposed to happen!”
“WORSHIP!” Then more of the weird chanting.
Then with great conviction I turned on my belly, closed my eyes and started saying the name of JESUS over and over. The bird creature started screaming at me louder: “WORSHIP!”
I stuffed my fingers in my ears, closed my eyes tighter and screamed louder my self: “JESUS JESUS JESUS JESUS!”
Suddenly, even though my eyes were closed, I saw a bright light. It was so piercing and white. Then, I heard the most beautiful song. My word y’all, I wish I could remember it – I have never heard this song before in my life it was so beautiful. In my dreams I started to cry at its beauty and I knew God had saved me.
Then I opened my eyes – hoping to see heaven or the Lord or something and immediately I was back at home.
Theres more to the dream, but it gets weirder from there. But I thought it was a funky dream when I woke up and thought nothing of it until I heard this song.
God was showing me something, something awesome. He was showing me His glory, His power, His might. He was showing me – nothing and I mean nothing compares to Him.
Nothing compares to the Lord.
I love me some Doctor who, but I need to keep that “love” in check. I mean; its okay to watch that show or any show or ya know its okay to love your car to the point that you have rules for people who sit in your car; or I guess its okay to love your phone so much to have 2 sets of covers on it; or maybe its alright to love your laptop so much that you clean it up and upgrade it constantly; or love your girlfriend/boyfriend so much but forget about walking the dog once or twice but it shouldn’t be something that you think about all the time.
The Lord should be something that is at the forefront of your mind, its okay if its not – I know for me its not. I hate to tell you this – I am only human, but its something I am working toward each and every single day.
