What was once lost is now found

Hello all,

For the longest time I could not log onto this site to moderate it, post to it, or approve submissions. I did not remember my log in e-mail and couldn't figure it out with the numerous g-mail accounts I have. Well, I finally figured it out and was able to log back on to the site. Sorry for my absence and I hope to add new posts in the near future.

May God bless you and speak to you in your dreams tonight and every night.

In my absense

Hello all,

I guess it is long overdue to give you and update on this site.

My life has been taking a detour through a Life's Maze these past few years. I have had to learn a new profession and go back to school to learn it. The job search has been long and arduous.

As things smooth out, I will once again monitor and update this site. Until then, God bless you and good luck on your road to fulfilling your destiny in life.

Life’s Maze 11-2-86

Life, maze with many turns –

too many for one person to handle;

yet with another we can split the searching,

meet in the middle, exchange experience.

Two can cover more ground than one,

the joy of succeeding, sharing.

We search, we learn, we gain experience,

sharing lessons and things we discover.

But you say you want to do it alone,

taking wrong turns until you find the right one.

Yet I can tell you of a turn or two,

and you can tell me of a few turns too.

Together we can make it in half the time;

leave the tangles maze behind,

we can sip from the victory vine.

Life’s maze is a lonely road,

not to be traveled…………alone.

In the Meantime...

As we wait for God to move with news of who will be our daughter, life goes on. Our normally busy household has been extra busy lately. Drama Queen and The Artist just finished successful runs as Juror 7 (12 Angry Men) and Templeton the Rat (Charlotte's Web). I hope to get pictures from both shows eventually and post them.

And before the mic tape has entirely faded both kids are moving on to new productions. Drama Queen is rehearsing a one-act play called 10,000 Cigarettes. The Artist and Number 1 Son both auditioned for School House Rock Live. Both boys got called back for interesting roles, so we'll see what parts they get when the cast list is posted on Friday. Zed is also taking theatre classes, and may have the theatre bug also. Time will tell.

Life is full, and good.

Fear Revealed—in Your Dreams

One of my dream interpretation mentors, John Paul Jackson, instructs: "What you fear, you empower. What you focus on, you make room for.” This concept speaks of how susceptible we humans are in allowing life’s difficulties to swallow up our optimism and hope.

We often project our ‘tough guy’ image or wear the fake smiley face among our peers, despite inner terrors that make us want to hide from the world.
Our worries appear frequently in our dreams, appropriately called ‘Fear dreams’. The purpose of these dreams is to identify fear in us so that we will face that fear and make changes so we are not paralyzed.

Some common examples:

o Fearful mothers have nightmares about something harming their babies (read more about nightmares).

o We need to give a speech in real life and we dream the night before that we forget our notes, nothing goes right, and we fail to wear clothing that day.

o We dream that someone breaks into our home, and we try to dial 911 but in our panic, we keep misdialing and never connect—we are afraid nobody will help us.

I visited with a teenage girl recently who dreamed every night that her boyfriend was killed in a car wreck. I asked if she was afraid of that. Her answer: ‘VERY—I am terrified about him and my family dying—and leaving me ALONE.” Fear of abandonment was choking out life.

Fear dreams are often recurring. If you see a scary theme surfacing in your dreams, you may need to consider examining a persistent fear issue. Once you address the fear, you will stop having the dreams.

It takes great courage to recognize the fear and face it, but freedom and peace are the desired result. Take a minute to list three of your known fears or anxieties—decide to release them into Divine custody, and picture how you will journey forward in faith.

What you fear, you empower. What you focus on, you make room for. What you 'stew' about may come to pass.

What are you making room for in your life today?

The Best Dream is the One You Can’t Remember!

Hello all,

I noticed there are a few of you out there who feel they don't have dreams and a couple who don't know if they have dreams.

I found a blog posting by Doug Addison that reveals some insight about dreams that are not remembered.

Doug encourages people on his blog to share this posting with others so here you go.

Understanding Dreams

The Best Dream is the One You Can’t Remember!

By Doug Addison (used with permission)

Maybe you have heard me say, “The best dream you can ever have is a dream you know you had but can’t remember the details of!”

Job 33:14–17 NKJV “For God may speak in one way, or in another, yet man does not perceive it. In a dream, in a vision of the night, when deep sleep falls upon men, while slumbering on their beds, then He opens the ears of men, and seals their instruction. In order to turn man from his deed, and conceal pride from man.”

God will often give us revelation and direction for our life through a dream and seal it away from our memory. Later you may walk into a situation and have a feeling you have been there before. Some people call this déjà vu. I believe that it was God giving us direction in a dream that we cannot remember and when we are living it out later we get that strange feeling that we have experienced this before.

God speaks to us all the time, sometimes through dreams. Though not all dreams are from God, we can receive instructions and guidance through dreams that is essential for our purpose and our destiny. Had He spoken to us more clearly or directly then we would have a higher responsibility for fulfilling what He wants us to do. By sealing it in a dream it can bypass our natural mind and even keep us from being prideful and from doing things in our own strength instead of His.

Another example of how God can use a dream is when you actually remember the dream but He seals away the meaning of it. We can have a dream from God that seems very significant but we do not understand the interpretation or how it applies to our life. This happened in the life of Joseph in the Old Testament. In Genesis 37, Joseph receives two powerful dreams about his destiny. The dreams indicate that his brothers and their parents will all bow down and serve Joseph. Even his father, Jacob, did not understand the meaning of this dream. The result was that Joseph was sold by his brothers and ends up a slave in Egypt. Later, in Genesis 41, God turned Joseph’s mishaps into a huge blessing that helped save the entire world from a famine.

Maybe you have wondered, how did my life end up the way it is? Oftentimes, like Joseph, we end up far from where we started and it may seem that the promises and dreams that God gave us will not come to pass. Just this year, I am seeing dreams and prophetic words in my life beginning to unfold that were given to me over twenty years ago. Had God revealed all the details ahead of time I probably would have tried to make things happen before His timing. God is faithful and we can trust Him as a loving father. Hold on to your dreams and also be open to the element of God surprising you with good things from Heaven.

Dreams to Prompt Prayer

Dreams to Prompt Prayer
- By Merry Bruton, 05/08/2009.

Used with permission by Merry Bruton.

I believe every dream we receive potentially initiates a conversation with God. I love waking up in the mornings, pondering my dreams, journaling or sketching them, and talking to God about them. Our ‘conversation’ is always fresh and relevant, never boring or repetitive.

Every dream is given as an invitation to go deeper with God. In the process, we get to know him better and we receive much needed daily encouragement.

Specifically, though, many dreams are given to launch us into prayer regarding a particular person or situation. God’s heart desires to use us to ask for change, wisdom or protection!

Prayer dreams can take many forms:

o If you are a leader, you may receive dreams about your followers—possible pitfalls as well as strengths within your organization

o Dreams generally reveal information in your sphere of influence, but sometimes on a grander scale (your family or national politics)

o You often wake up heavy with emotion for someone. You may see their face or name in your mind—during the day or night

o You are flying around surveilling random scenes

o If you are not the ‘main character’ of a dream, but primarily observing, chances are good the dream is not about you, but is showing you information you need to know and pray about

o Dreams can show situations in present, past or future

Example: my son is a late-night traveling musician, and when he is in transit, I will often dream about him being in a potential car wreck and wake up to pray for his safety. Many times, the next day, he reports hitting an ice slick or a deer at the exact time I was praying—and he was protected in those rough roadside ditches.

If we value our dreams and spend more time interacting with the Dream Giver about them, imagine how our lives might change!

Where Do Our Dreams Come From?

Not all dreams come from a Divine source but all dream interpretations belong to our Divine Creator.

"We both had dreams," they answered, "but there is no one to interpret them."
Then Joseph said to them, "Do not interpretations belong to God? Tell me your dreams."
Genesis 40:8.

We do have dreams from our Creator and they are usually with a lot of color.

We also have dreams from our soul that could come from our own soulish desires often putting ourselves first instead of others.

We can also have dreams from a dark spiritual source and these are often in black and white, taking place at nighttime or sometimes with muted colors.

We can also have dreams that are brought on by chemicals in our bodies like alcohol, medication or illegal drug use.

If you are a woman who is pregnant you may even have dreams from your unborn child or a confusing tangle of your dreams intertwined with your unborn child's dreams.

If we have a dream from a dark spiritual force it could be this enemy is trying to scare us from doing something and often the Divine Spiritual thing to do is to do the very thing the enemy is trying to scare us from doing. In some cases our Creator allows these dreams from the enemy so we can get a glimpse of the enemy's plans and do the opposite.

We can also have warning dreams in which our Creator is trying to warn us about something we may be doing or allowing ourselves to do that is not spiritually sound or good for us. We may be receiving a Divine Spiritual dream or vision warning us about a soulish issue we are being overcome with and it could be hindering us from moving forward in our full destiny spiritually. Sometimes these dreams may be scary or borderline nightmares. These should not be dismissed because they seemed dark because sometimes they are allowed by our Creator to teach us or warn us about something.

It is good to not believe every spirit but to test the spirits. That is great sound advice. We must guard our own hearts with good and honorable things. We must align ourselves spiritually with the Divine Spiritual realm and the power of The Spirit of Truth.

The key to all dream interpretations is through the power of The Spirit of Truth. You can not rely on a list or system of elements because The Creator does not always follow a pattern we can put our finger on and often shows us things in new and deeper ways that we may lack the understanding for. Only through Divine Spiritual requests and a close relationship with The Creator and The Spirit of Truth in conjunction with great character within ourselves will we be able to hear our Creator for the correct Divine interpretation.

Blessings to each and everyone of you and may you find the true Divine meaning of your dreams and visions as you draw closer to The Spirit of Truth.

Dream: A Tiger in My House!

Hello all,

I thought I'd share a dream with you I had this morning to see if you may have any comments about it. It was a bit of a nightmare at the end. :-(

A Tiger in my House!

I'm in my family home I lived in with my mother (until she passed two years ago) standing in the living room looking into the dining room where there were animals.

There was
a tiger walking around and a beaver in a cage.

There was no bar
rier between the two rooms; the animals did not seem to notice me.

My sister Nancy says "you even have a beaver" then goes upstairs with my mother. I did not see them in the dream. I notice the door leading from the dining room to the kitchen was open and I think in my head the tiger could get out that way. The tiger does that and I run to close the door to the pantry (this door is on the opposite side of the kitchen from the door leading from the dining room) so the tiger couldn't get though just as the tiger approached it but the door wouldn't stay closed. I made a loud noise with my voice to scare the tiger it worked but the tiger came back. I was scared and called out to my mother for help as the tiger got through the door.

I woke up because I was making the loud noise in real life too that I was making in the dream.

After I was awake I thought it was odd the tiger took the long way around through the kitchen and pantry instead of just walking from the dining room to the living room since there were no barriers between the two rooms.

I don't remember any color but it didn't seem a black and white dream. It seemed dimly lit and colors were muted.

Later when typing my dream in my computer I got a sense the tiger might have jumped over me as it got through the door but this was not in my notes.

Interesting elements to consider:

My old family home.

I was standing in living room.

Tiger roaming free in dining room.

Beaver in a cage in dining room.

Animals did not seem to notice me.

No barrier between dining room and living room.

My sister, Nancy, says, "You even have a beaver."

Sister (Nancy) is in the dream but not seen.

My sister and mother (Alice) go upstairs (both not seen).

Dimly lit rooms with muted color.

I notice the door from the dining room to the kitchen is open and I think in the dream that the tiger can get out that way then the tiger does go out that door.

Tiger goes through kitchen and pantry to try and get out and does not just walk from dining room to living room.

I can't keep door closed.

I use my voice to make noises to scare the tiger. It only works briefly.

I get scared and call out to my mom as the tiger gets through the door.

What do you all think? :-\

Dream – Nov 18, 2008

A young girl was running to someone with 8 stones joined by a string in her hands.

Each stone was glowing with a different color. The color was a luminous center about a forth the size of the stone. The girl was excited like one or more of the stones was about to give birth to something wonderful.

Arriving at the counselor, He took the stones and examined them carefully.

The scene abruptly changes. She now sees a man with something like a stun gun in his hand. He confronts the 1st person who comes to Him. What do you want? The young man coming to Him tells Him and zap he receives a great reward. Another comes to Him and the 2nd young man is destroyed when He makes his request. The girl looks on in astonishment. A 3rd person comes to Him with a new request and zap they are rewarded.

The girl asks the counselor about the events and the 8 glowing stones. He replies “chose wisely”. Each stone can be destruction or reward. Chose wisely, each stone is for your crown.

The girl replied to the counselor, I am not wise Lord – my choices always lead to destruction – you choose for me, please!
