Have you ever felt like your dreams were hijacked?  You wake up after a dream confused and asking yourself, "where in the world did that come from?" 

I have had 3 dreams in the last couple of weeks that have left me with the feelings of fear, doubt and worry when I awoke from the dreams.  These feelings that I experienced can only come from the devil, himself.  The devil hijacked my dreams!!

I will paint you a little picture of each of my dreams, so you can see what I am talking about.  The setting of all 3 of my dreams either took place at night or on a cloudy, evening. The house that the 3 dreams took place in or around was a 2 story, old, white house.  Shutters were falling off and doors creaked when they were opened.  The stairs were very narrow and the stairs creaked with each step that you took.  Yes, I dream in vivid detail and sometimes that is a disadvantaged. 

My first dream was about me loosing a baby.  We are fostering a 3 yr old and a 3 month old right now and for some reason I kept loosing the baby in the house.  Every time I found her, I would loose her again.  Panic is an understatement.  What I felt was sheer terror! When I woke up I was thankful it was only a dream, but the feeling of fear was still running through my body.  I know I would never loose this precious baby, but the devil wanted to create fear in me to try and break me down.

My second dream consisted of both girls that we are fostering.  They have weekly visits with their parents in reality, but in my dream we kept getting questioned about how we parented the girls and the bio-parents kept saying what a horrible job we were doing.  The negativity went on and on.  The devil was trying to create doubt in my ability to parent these kids.  My husband and I went through extensive training in order to foster kids, not to mention that fact that we would never do anything to harm these kids, so I know in reality I am totally capable  of taking care of these two precious children.  If we weren't, we would not have been licensed by the state, and therefore, entrusted to take care of kids in need.

My third dream was two nights ago.  The thing that I worry about most is my family.  It's not a constant worry, but more of a concern, hope everyone is doing well sort of worry.  They cross my mind at least once a day.  I dreamed that my brother got jumped by a group of guys.  They were outside the little white house.  I was yelling for them to stop, and asking my husband and friends to go help him.  Fortunately I woke up!  Thankfully, once again it was all a dream.

I am thankful that all three of these scenarios were dreams.  The devil will try to get to you anyway that he can.  He tried to get to me through my dreams.  He used my dreams to try and create worry, fear, and doubt.  I could have allowed all those negative emotions to control me, allowing the devil to "hijack" me, but through the power of prayer I was able to overcome each emotion and allow God to provide me with peace. Giving me positive, real thoughts instead of the negative thoughts that the dreams had created.

Everyday, the battle between good and evil rages on.  The devil wants to "hijack" your thoughts and emotions so bad that he will try anything, and I mean anything to get his way.  You do have a choice, you can choose to prevail over him by praying and asking God for help or you can become a prisoner to your negative thoughts and emotions.

I know which one I chose; the one that gave me peace and happiness.  God will always prevail over the devil!!!

2 Timothy 1:7

New King James Version (NKJV)
7 For God has not given us a spirit of fear, but of power and of love and of a sound mind.

P.S. Just FYI, God allows the devil to try and get to us.  So, in other words the devil had to ask permission from God, to "hijack" my dreams.  This is for another blog that will be posted in the near future!

Love In Christ,

It's the new year, and for most people, that means making a new resolutions!  I personally did not make any new year's resolutions for 2013!  I used to make resolutions in the past, but never seemed to keep them.

I am so glad that with God we always get a chance to start over at any point that we ask for forgivness!  When we accept Jesus as our persoanl Lord and Savior, we are given the great gift of enternal life and the fact that we can ask for forgivness whenever we mess up or do something wrong.

Our slates become clean again and we are given another chance to show God's love and do right in the world.  This is the best resolution that I can think of!  I am so thankful that God loves me so much that He gave his son to die on the cross, that I can have my sins washed away and I can become "white as snow" again.  Thank you Jesus, for the best resolution!

The Lord says, "Now, let's settle the matter. You are stained red with sin, but I will wash you as clean as snow. Although your stains are deep red, you will be as white as wool. "  Isaiah 1:18

And yet, I am the God who forgives your sins, and I do this because of who I am. I will not hold your sins against you." Isaiah 43:25

Love In Christ,
