Journal Entry: Friday 10-16-2009
Wednesday night, I had a terrible dream. It wasn’t a nightmare because I felt calm when I woke up. I haven’t written it down until now because it was one of those “What do I do with this God?” type dreams. Here’s what I remember.
I remember helping people who were physically wounded. I was part of a team. I was in a city and the sky was gray throughout the entire city. It looked like a war-zone. I remember very clearly holding a man up and walking with him draped across my shoulder and someone else was on the other side of him. I saw the 3 of us walking towards me (my point of view of the dream). We were walking down a deserted street and there was fog or smoke surrounding the entire area. I also remember a green shack with a brown roof. There was a graveyard next to the ground instead of above ground. I saw names that didn’t mean anything to me except one. One I believe, was a family member. Right before I woke up I heard: “There will be more casualties until people start to care. I finally stayed still enough to bring this to The Lord and I was given Zephaniah 3 -> specifically starting with verse 6.
Zephaniah 3:6-8 – “I have cut off nations, Their fortresses are devastated; I have made their streets desolate, With none passing by. Their cities are destroyed; There is no one, no inhabitant. 7 I said, ‘Surely you will fear Me, You will receive instruction’—
So that her dwelling would not be cut off, Despite everything for which I punished her.
But they rose early and corrupted all their deeds. 8“Therefore wait for Me,” says the Lord, “Until the day I rise up for plunder; My determination is to gather the nations
To My assembly of kingdoms, To pour on them My indignation, All My fierce anger;
All the earth shall be devoured With the fire of My jealousy.

Honor Thy King (originally written: Monday 08/17/2009
Time is a lie, Love is alive
We set our pace and seek not His Face
The Tree guides our walk yet still we sulk
Living day by day in a purposeless haze
Talking to each ear but silence is what we hear
The Sun is bold yet our sight is old
To stand on my knees is great victory
The sweet Sacrifice of The Vine makes me no more blind
Your Sword I hold dear, Joy I now hear
My steps now steady only You make Me Ready
Death beneath My Feet, Life IS My Crown
Victory, Thy Vision IS Love
Jesus is The Glorious Sound
My Life for You
Saying good-bye to yesterday
A new life dwells here today
Teachers have taught me
Now I obey Thee
I give You All that’s Within
To remove my sins
You were slain to Renew
I Give My ALL to BE With YOU!!
