Stand – Psalm 46:1-3

Stand – Psalm 46:1-3

Let the waters roar
Watch the mountains fall
Stand as the earth shakes
And hills and valleys quake
For the righteous will be safe
In the refuge of our Lord
And all His people will stand
Kept safe by His might hand

Psalm 46:1-3

Drinking Dreams

From time to time, like most people, I have quite vivid dreams. Some just strange, some fairly normal (not many) and some with reoccurring themes. There’s nothing strange about that, this is I guess fairly normal for most people.

Just one dream haunts me now, only a few months ago I remember thinking that I hadn’t experienced this dream in a long time, in the previous five years it had been one of those bad reoccurring dreams, that left me frozen. But now I remember thinking that if this dream had passed into memory them I have made another significant step in recovery from my alcohol addiction.

Then just a few days later it came back.

The worst thing about this reoccurring dream is the immense feeling of guilt, when I wake it leaves me confused, stunned and filled with guilt and sorrow.

In these dreams I see myself having innocently taking a drink of alcohol, it doesn’t matter if it is just a sip or a skin full, as soon as I see that image in my mind and there within the dream I experience a mass of guilt and then immediately I wake and that guilt stays.

I wake in a state of complete confusion, not knowing if the guilt is real, I’m cold inside, frozen, I believe I’ve lost it all. Sometimes I even have to look around my room to check the evidence of drinking is not there, looking for the glass or bottle that I have just seen myself drink from, I search for it to make sure it was just a dream.

It can take a while to come to the realisation that this is only dream, trying to get back to sleep, still shaking from the overriding guilt is hard. The last thing you want is to drift back into the same dream, but at the same time you need the peace that sleep can bring, I hate these dreams, they are my nightmares.

You would say that a night,are would generally involve a monster of some kind chasing after you, in my dreams the monster is me, that part of my past that will probably always chase me. I had hoped I had ran far enough away for it not to catch and chase me anymore, but it is still there, my monster is still chasing, but I am determined that it will never catch me.

It can try to take in my sleep, but it won’t get me in my life.

I was given the strength by God to resist, that strength I will carry with me always, if I choose to, and I do.

Psalm 46:1-3

Psalm 46:1-3

Dreams will always come and go in life, but God doesn’t, He never leaves.

OF MEN AND ANGELS by THE ROCKET SUMMER
Stop the press, everything’s a mess
You can look alive, but you are not at rest.
And i-ideas are flowing through your head
A million miles an hour while lying in your bed
A lucid life you never thought you’d lead
Are you working everyday?
Are you working just to bleed?
I know

You’re staring at the names of the famed that are dipped in gold
The feeling you deserve what you’ve heard
But it doesn’t go that way

Oh, the tongues of men and angels
I speak but lack love.
Oh, love, will I stab you in the back?
Working everyday,
I’m afraid I forgot to show what’s most important: love

Here I am, dear Lord, tasting hints of fame
And I don’t want it anymore
If it’s not you that I gain
Wanna fall at your feet
Don’t wanna fall from your peace
I understand

Have you ever been the man that just ran
When you knew that God was talking?
Have you ever heard his voice through the noise
But just let it go away?

Oh, the tongues of men and angels
I speak but lack love.
Oh, love, will I stab you in the back?
How can I go with mine instead of yours
When yours is always right
I’m sorry just pour into me love

Here I am, dear Lord, tasting hints of fame
And I don’t want it anymore
If it’s not you that I gain
Wanna fall at your feet
Don’t wanna fall from your peace
I understand

A heart at rest is harder now
Don’t let it go away
A hard earned pay, a hard earned pain
Right now they’re just the same
What’s the use, why work so hard
When it’s not what you crave
When what you need is: love.

Here I am, dear Lord, tasting hints of fame
And I don’t want it anymore
If it’s not you that I gain
Wanna fall at your feet
Don’t wanna fall from your peace
I understand

Here I am, dear Lord, tasting hints of fame
And I don’t want it anymore
If it’s not you that I gain
Wanna fall at your feet
Don’t wanna fall from your peace
I understand

Our God (Psalm 46:1-3)

Our God (Psalm 46:1-3)

From lonely mountains
Or peaceful valleys
Our God is our refuge

In the midst of the storm
Or the sunlight of day
Our God is our strength

Surrounded by desolation
Or dancing in spring rains
Our God is our living water

On the eve of our passing
Or the moment we are reborn
Our God is our life

Verse of the Day – Psalm 46:1-3

Psalm 46:1-3

Psalm 46:1-3

Whatever I face, God goes before me, He will be my ever present shelter, it’s time to stop doing everything by my own strength and fearing failure, He is my strength and my refuge.

ONE THIRTY NINE by ABOVE THE GOLDEN STATE
When I was yet unformed
You saw me and my days were numbered
You formed me
When I was in the dark
You searched me every part turned over
You found what’s inside of my heart

Where can I go
If I want to be alone?
I turn and Your there
Now I’m gonna let it out
All I know
Is Your mercy surrounds me
Your thoughts for me outnumber the sand
Now I’m gonna sing it out
From my soul
Only You understand me
You’re holding me inside Your hands

From the moment I was born
You tried me and You made me stronger
I remember when You let me take control
So I would wonder
Who I am and who I’m under
You broke me
To show me who You are

Outside cut into my inside
You won’t stop ‘til You find
The pride in my head, in my head
Inside You can give me one mind
Press me ‘til I rewind
Into Your hands, into Your hands
