In That Day

On September 25, 2003, I had a dream that I was sitting on a pile of clouds with a little boy [whom I didn't know] trying to comfort that boy and there was a huge Presence [no face, I just felt something next to me but couldn't see anything that seemed to comfort me in return]. The boy and I were looking at a small ball from a distance that looked like our planet Earth, with orange hue all around it [kind of like the picture here] and smokes were billowing from different parts.



I'm writing about this today, no! not to interpret that dream but to let you know of how joyful I am that when we trust in Jesus, we have that security that He gives that no matter what happens all around us, when He returns [the second time around] that it is something to look forward to. I was inspired to write this song the following day. The last part of the song, the Lord had given me a year later.


Isaiah 12:1-2 -"In that day you will sing: "Praise the Lord! He was angry with me, but now He comforts me. See, God has come to save me. I will trust in Him and not be afraid. The Lord God is my strength and my song; He has become my salvation." [Life Application Bible].


In That Day


Lord, despite me feeling low
When the trials seem too much to overcome
But I want the whole world to know
I'll be waiting 'til that time when You come

Chorus:

In that day, I will sing "Hallelujah" to my King
He will come to save me
I will put my trust only in Jesus Christ
He will soothe my pains
And I'll go home with Him
In that day....

Now, my heart is filled with joy
Knowing that You're always there for me
But whatever trial comes my way
I'll find my strength from You when I pray

[repeat Chorus]

He will soothe my pains
And I'll go home with Him....in that day....

  3. Such a beautiful dream; I'm so glad you shared it with us so that we, too, can get excited about His coming for us and taking us with Him to a better home than this world. Now that's a comforting thought! Isn't it interesting that He gave you the song in different time spans? Very creative, my friend. Have a great day and don't work too hard!

    Love ya,
    Mary

  4. When God sends a dream you never forget it. Years later you can close you eyes and it is there. You already seem to know what the lesson is that you were to take from it. Thank you for sharing.

    DO you write the music as well as the words to your songs? On what instrument? DO you share them in church?

    Thanks for this blog sister

  5. Rosel,

    Thank you for your inner beauty in sharing your dream. It's amazing to look back and see the things God often reveals to us in dreams. I anxiously await spending an eternity with our Lord Jesus Christ, but all my brothers and sisters in Christ as well. AMEN!

  6. Yes, it was comforting sis Denise. Thank you for always visiting me. I would know if you don't. :)

    I'm glad to see you came by sis Alleluiabelle! I was praying for you today because I know that you'd be spending time with your youngest grandchild. So glad you had a chance to visit me and read my "8 things". I prayed for you and your husband this morning while I was driving in my car.

    Sister Mary! I hope you're having a great time despite this sweltering heat all over Southern CA. I checked out your daughter's blog and got drawn to pass by for some reason. I was so blessed to see your wonderful daughter and your loving, sooo cute grandchild!!! My husband used to be in the Navy, too years ago except he got out and he's working now in Federal gov't. God bless you always and your family. Prayed for your safety as you visit ur family.

    Sister Cynthia! I learned the guitar on my own when I was in elementary. Then I used to love to write poems. Later on, something clicked when I accepted the Lord, and that was how I started writing song for Him. I don't have a nice voice but yes, I usually have a simple guitar chords for most of the songs I had written [glory to God!]. No, I haven't sang any in our church. I will leave it to the Lord what He wants me to do with these. I had 2 songs recorded from Tennessee. I paid for it just to try what melody they would put. It turned out nice but I couldn't upload it in blogger. I wish we're all singing together.[me with a softer voice... :) but with loud banging with my guitar. My heart will be the one singing out loud!

    Sister Kat, hot here in So. CA! Whewww... I hope you're staying cool. I just downed a glass of iced tea :) Amen! I pray that my all my blogging friends and I will be side by side worshipping the Lord!

    You all have a blessed Tuesday. Thank you for your comments. Don't be afraid to write me anything negative because I will welcome any. Love and prayers to you all!! Keep writing for the Lord!!!

The Attacker (5/15/09)

The sun was just peeking from the Eastern skies. Ephesians 6:12 [37 kb]


Out in the prison’s yard, some huge Sheriff’s buses were illuminated by the soft glow coming from the lights all over from the tall lamp posts. Their engines were turned on, warming up, before the buses would take the inmates to the different courts where they would have their trials.


Orange-uniformed men were lined up in pairs, joined together with handcuffs and chained, forming a long line. They already had their breakfast and had their morning medications prior to going to courts. Some were fidgeting, as they waited to board those buses.


All of a sudden, all hell broke loose! Two men were engaged in a fight, using weapons they made secretly for a while. Deputies called for help on the radio, both for custody back-up and medical staff, as well.


When the air was cleared and the other inmates were secured, one man was down on the floor. He sustained multiple gashes but two of them were deep. One cut was vertically etched from his left ear going down to the jaw line. The other dangerous cut was horizontal on his left neck, close to the jugular vein. Pool of blood dripped all over the floor. Holding his bleeding neck, he was pointing at the other inmate few feet away, being guarded by the other deputies.


The other man being accused was not hurt. There were no lacerations nor any other signs of trauma. He was obviously very agitated as he was being questioned by those deputies, while the medical staff started treating the other man on the floor. They cleaned the wounds and controlled the bleeding. That man was sent to the nearby hospital.


When the investigation was finalized, it turned out to be that the “downed man who was accusing the other inmate” was the attacker and the other one who didn’t have injury was the one attacked. The deputies found out that it was the second attempt to attack the unhurt man. Both attacks on him failed. He was well-prepared after the first attempt on him, that when the second attempt was done, he was able to defend himseld and ended up injuring his attacker severely.


[Source: Life Application Bible]:


We also have an “accuser of the brethren.” Satan and his army of demons are the enemies of God and of everything good.


“Because God’s children are human beings – made of flesh and blood – Jesus also became flesh and blood by being born in human form. For only as a human being could he die, and only by dying could he break the power of the Devil, who had the power of death.” –Hebrews 2:14


Because of what Jesus had done [dying on the cross], we, who live in constant fear of death shouldn’t be afraid anymore. Jesus had freed us from that fear so we can live for Him. When we belong to God, we know that death is only the portal that leads into “eternal life”. [“Thank You Lord!].


Paul warned us, too that we also battle against the evil forces of Satan, who is a vicious fighter. But to be able to withstand their attacks, we must depend on God’s strength and use every piece of His armor. We face an army whose goal is to defeat Christ’s church. When we believe in Christ, they become our enemies. They will try any device to turn us away from the Lord.


Fear not! For God has provided His supernatural power to defeat Satan and his army, through His Holy Spirit within us. So, arm yourselves with God’s armor.


Let us be strong in the Lord's mighty power. Let's put on His whole armor to resist the enemy's attacks: put on the sturdy belt of truth and the body armor of God's righteousness. For shoes, put on the peace that comes from the Good News, so that we are well-prepared. We will need faith in every battle as our shield to stop the fiery arrows aimed by Satan and his army. Let us put on salvation as our helmet, not forgetting the sword of the Spirit, which is the Word of God. Let's pray at all times, on every occasion in the power of the Holy Spirit. We must stay alert and be persistent in our prayers for all Christians everywhere. [Ephesians 6:10-18].
