This Will All be Over Soon
This is about a message I received yesterday morning. Now before I tell you what the message was I want to tell you what I prayed about the night before. Before I went to bed I talked to the Lord about a lot of things. But specifically I spoke to him about me being so distracted lately. Every since I finished my book, I have had so much on my mind Everything from posting videos, to managing a website, this blog, my job, my family. I just got a lot going on right now. So much so, that I have not been hearing anything from the Lord lately. I dream every night and I haven't even been able to remember my dreams because from the moment I'm conscious my mind starts racing, organizing the all things that I need to do for the day.
I also specifically remember talking to Him about my motivation for everything that I do . My motivation is Him, to one day be in his presence. That is my desire, my hope and the goal I work towards daily. While we are here we have to seek his presence. We have to live a certain way to be close to him. I know he is always there but at times he seems so far away. This has especially been true for me recently because I have been very distracted by the things of my day to day life. What keeps me focused is knowing that one day, one great and glorious day, we will not have to seek him, we will be able to live forever in his presence.
Well last night I dreamed all night. I did not recall my complete dream but I remember seeing an image of myself. It was as if I was looking at myself from the side. I could see dried tears on my face, It was as if I had cried a river. But it was obvious that I was done crying because there was only the dry salty remains of what used to be tears.
I also woke up with a song in my spirit. This happens to me a lot and I explain this in my book, God often uses music to communicate with me. The song I woke up with was, Crossover By Travis Greene. Which is a song about leaving and going to the promised land, Heaven. The combination of what I saw in my dream and the song gave me an immediate feeling the this will all be over soon. As I made this connection it hit me right in my spirit and brought tears to my eyes. As I write this now I have to fight the same feeling. I have learned to trust my feeling especially when it comes to the Lord. This is how he communicates and confirms things to me. And this felt very strongly, right. We just have to listen and trust what we 'feel' he is telling us. I also believe he gave me a message just so that I know he's still there and still listening to my prayers.
Now I have no idea what 'soon' is because God's timing is not like our own. But there will soon be a day where there is no more crying, no more tears. No more concerns for this world. A day when we will leave here to be with him. Now this event could be death or something else like 'the rapture'. Either way we all need to live our lives in such a manner that we are ready to meet him when that day comes.
KJV Matthew 25:31- 46 When the son of man shall come in his glory, and all his holy angels with him,...
KJV Revelation 21:4 And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.
KJV Revelation 3:11 I am coming soon. Hold on to what you have, so that no one will take your crown. Him who overcomes I will make a pillar in the temple of my God. Never again will he leave it.
