In my dream, I was worshipping the Lord. Everyone around me was numb ~ like robots. Surrounded by many people, I was the only one singing praises. Suddenly two very big men came and took my little girl away. Several men held me down while I screamed and tried my best to grab her…. Nobody listened or tried to help, not even my loved ones all around me.
I heard the song “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane, and then woke up.
I fell asleep and had another dream. I was enjoying time with my mom, when she suddenly asked me to leave. I wanted to be with her, but she had singled me out. She asked me to leave and nobody else. As I grew upset, she became pleased with my anger. I shared with friends about it, nobody seemed to listen to me.
I prayed over these dreams and listened to the song “Somewhere Only We Know” by Keane. It had been years since I heard that song. It reminded me of being in the secret place with the Lord. The Lord led me to read about that in Psalm 91.
Later that day I heard a song on the radio that I hardly hear, but that I love.. 🎵Take me to that secret place.. where I’m lost in you, found in you🎵
I see that little girl as me when I was helpless and nobody helped me. Everybody was blind, even those I loved and who I thought would protect me. Grown up and worshipping, nobody could see my heart. Nobody could see what I was seeing. I’ve been in those helpless moments. I tried to get help, nobody believed me.. nobody listened. Feeling constantly unloved. But God has always seen my heart and he has helped me, believed in me. His love for us never fails. The enemy may want me to feel afraid or go back to being lost in my past.. But I’ve been found, rescued and set free.🙌🏻
I no longer have enemies surrounding me. And as long as I can go to the secret place with the Lord, I will always be protected.
I’ve always longed to have strong relationships with my first family, but there is so much darkness. Trying to shine your light can be hard. I’ve learned that God is the only perfect parent.. but God is all we need. It is such a blessing to be his child and in his family.
When I was a little girl, I didn’t know about the Lord. When I was 16 and began attending church alone, I didn’t truly know the Lord’s heart. As years went on, I kept pressing and seeking. Through serving in ministries, ministering to others and being diligent in learning who our Lord is.. Through His Word, prayer and others whom he dwells in.. I’ve grown and will continue to grow until that glorious day home with him. The best way to be filled with his presence and to learn with him…. is to be in that secret place.
It is there that….
He will deliver us and show his power.
He will give us peace in all our troubles.
If we are still, he will speak to us.
We are reminded of his promises to us.
He will give us rest.
He will pour love into our heart and soul.
It was in the secret place with our Heavenly Father that I was healed from my hurtful past. In his quiet shelter, I was found in such an overwhelming love. A love so powerful that I can love someone who tried to kill me. This world can be cruel, but staying close to our Lord will bring you a peace and joy amidst anything.
It is in this hiding place I can see how everything that happened was meant for good. I am able to love on others with so much more compassion. My heart is so grateful for the things of the Lord. It is amazing how far he can take us. It takes my breath away when I try to imagine our future in the heavenly kingdom. A day where there will be no more pain or tears, all our faith will be rewarded. In this world of time, I believe the secret place is the closest we will get to that.
This means to be still and focus your heart on him. Your secret place can be anywhere. It helps to limit distractions and have quietness. Your secret place can be driving to work in your car, taking a shower, in Starbucks, or at a beautiful beach. Choose to dwell in the shelter of the most high. That means make this a part of your life, make the time. That is how we learn more about others and grow closer with them.. including our God.
May the spirit of our living God touch you…
Ask the Lord to purify your heart. Be honest, trust in him.. Enter into his intimacy.. And watch the revelations and glorious love that you will be blessed with.
