That song that plays... You hear it once, twice, three times... It's a beautiful worship song... Today it touched my heart like WOW! Our church's worship team has started to write their own songs and one of them is the one that WOW'd me today. I heard it back in Easter time and then watched it many times on video on Facebook.

Today was the day. As I sang the lyrics:

Oceans rise
Hope may fade
Through my life
You remain

Yes those lyrics touched me like never before today. The Lord was showing me just yesterday that my JOY has been renewed in my life, heart, soul, body, home, EVERYWHERE. For about 2 years my joy was not in me. You may ask "why?" Well that's for another post.

Let me just say that if your hope fades away at anytime in your life, pray that the Lord will renew it. If your joy fades, ask Him to renew it. He can renew ANYTHING! Marriage, finances, relationships, ANYTHING!!!

In Psalms 51:10 it says: " Create in my a clean heart, O God.  Renew a loyal spirit within me."

Ask and you shall receive! Maybe not in your time (took 2 years) but in His time ;)

It Is Well With My Soul,

I don't dream a lot but when I do it's a good dream and it's one I either need to journal or blog about. This morning I woke up feeling so awesome because in my dream I led a girl to Christ. I have never in real life brought anyone to Christ, YET!

In my dream I was with my sister Fay, my cousin Philip, my Titi Evelyn, and my Tio Fred.  We were in a lazy river.  Philip was doing silly dives and my sister and I were just cracking up. All three of us decided we wanted to go to the other side of the lazy river so Fay and I grabbed onto Philip's arms, and as we were about to start swimming a girl grabbed my arm and said "I need you to pray for me." I then told her "Okay let me get to the other side of the river and then I will find you and pray with you."

I went and found her and we found a curb to sit and talk and pray.  She began to tell me her problems and and tried to give her the best advice I could give her from my heart.  It was as if she was yearning to just sit and tell someone everything and in return have someone pray with her. After awhile I asked her if she had ever asked Jesus Christ into her heart. She mentioned no she never had and so I asked her if she wanted to. She wasn't sure and hesitated a bit and then she said "Yes I want to."

I grabbed her hand and for some reason we were praying over her belly. She then began to shake and cry and then my sister brought her some kleenex. I went back to the car where my family was and we drove off.

The End...

Like I stated before I don't dream often. I believe dreams are brought into your sleep to tell you something and to be fast to pray about it. I know there are many of us hurting and need that someone to pray for them EVEN if you don't know them.

With this dream the verse that came to my heart was: "You are the light of the world. A city set on a hill cannot be hidden…Let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good works, and glorify your Farther who is in heaven (MAT 5:14a, MAT 5:16)."

Have a blessed weekend,

In Memory of my cousin, Paul
