‘Thank you Lord for one more day’ – Lurin Cato.
Amen – Can I share ? I will anyway. The love of Jesus is the reason why.
I was having a real bad day yesterday, and I saw a downward spiral depression knocking on my door. I woke up – everything turned from bad to worse. First, it was bad news, one letter opened after another. I cancelled my much looked forward to lunch meeting with a dear colleague /friend we had planned, somewhere, fancy, few weeks before.
The enemy knew how to do it. As I was travailing and wrestling with these negative thoughts, surprisingly – the friend, my colleague called me and asked If I was still coming, that he was waiting for me at the venue. I explained my situation. He was sympathetic; not mad and we talked for almost half an hour. I realised how I’d allowed the storm to try and move me off course for a greater plan – known coming.
As that phased, there was more drama that came – as my moods kept depleting, headaches and the saga. This one is usually spiritual – beyond me. One thing, I’ve learned, when I get this way, is, withdraw, and go to bed. It may take a day or two more. But I just couldn’t sleep peacefully, despite. Kept trying to do everything I knew. I even texted some friends – that I needed someone to talk to. I got zero responses. Wish I’d remembered to text Lurin.
Anyway, I kept trying to rest my fragile brain, before, I started reacting, even more badly, to all the symptoms surfacing, with every fibre in me. It was a struggle. I quickly disposed of those ugly letters from view and shifted my focus.
Now in my following dream, whilst asleep, I had company – they were strange-like company – not easy to describe, but I remember, it felt like I was awake. I almost thought I’d missed a day. I did everything one would do, normally, in the day – activity wise, in this dream. It was like a one to one.
The most memorable part was someone, singing to me a bunch of songs. The most memorable, the hook of my self-penned, song, emptiness, that I wrote, 7/8 years ago – playfully, just repeating that hook back and forth, with me ..’ It felt so real. Whilst this was going on, I was still in physical psychological pain, battling with my mood and state.
Now what happened after is what I can’t forget. In the dream I was still, trying to find a friend to text or call, to speak with – then the company, with me, just said to me – ‘Why not tell it to Jesus’. I am not even lieing. This is the God honest truth. Right from within the dream – I started doing this. By the time I woke up – I was refreshed and fine. Began, to wonder why I was waking up – because everything felt so real, like I was already awake. I’m sharing this because – I read a Facebook post saying – ‘Thank you Lord for one more day’ by Lurin Cato. The principalities and powers of this world, know what I know, and that’s why they won’t stop.
I instantly knew what this meant, because the last time I had this encounter was when I received bad news in the post a few years ago. So bad that it overwhelmed me, that I was lying on my back in my bed, vowing in my heart and head, I just want to die now, sleep, and never wake up – again. It was almost exactly, the last time, I had the same company with me who I saw, in my dream. Such a strange state to be in. I guess God knows when I’ve reached my limit.
The difference is only this. The last time, I was wide awake. So, clearly, it was a vision, not a dream. On that occasion, one knelt beside me, looking in my eyes, intently, resting a hand on my belly. Then I felt something indescribable, like a current of energy flow through me ..’ What happened after – is a secret I’m not sharing, until a time comes.
I’ve a reached a point in my life, where I don’t care anymore on opinions of others, when I have these moments ..’ I speak what I know. Share what I’ve received. It’s up to you to process it and make do with. If you need, clarification, advise, direction, tweet, Facebook, or inbox me. God Is Love*. There is a reason why I read Lurin’s post and my testimony is validation. I never claim to be perfect. I’m in working progress like every other human being on earth; yet, I know so much more than your average believer and unbeliever.
As a child I have seen, heard and touched, met, been to, shown, know things, taken places, beyond human eyes, within our human realm, that, when I begin to share, some – people freeze over. Some with doubt, some with curiosity. Some try to give weird explanations, that make me laugh inside out; but I know what it is. The principalities and powers of this world, know what I know, and that’s why they won’t stop.
For the record, I don’t drink nor do drugs, nor do I judge those who do have, such, or similar vices. Life is a journey. Everyone is questing. Everyone is arriving. Thou, time is the worst enemy!
I ask God sometimes why do I know so much. Why me ..’ I’ve had famous successful people, ask me the same question – ‘Why do you know so much?’. Blessed Burden! Sometimes, I wish I didn’t.
With hindsight my family are like that. Some of them are filled with amazing spiritual gifts, both on my father and mothers side – from deacons to reverends. Even as a child, I would dream dreams and tell my uncles and aunties, which they didn’t believe, until they came to pass. Don’t get it twisted. There are ugly people there, too; who need this message, more than anything. Remember the Story of Joseph, in the Bible. It’s so very comforting. Even, I do. Don’t know about you?
This is even more so ironic. Just today; I was saying to myself, when I woke up, ‘make the most of every second; because, tomorrow may never come’. When God wants to get our attention to propel us, he knows how to do it in his own unique, unprecedented, innumerable super-natural way. Nor will he share his glory with anyone. When God speaks to me, from experience, it’s been the most compelling, surreal, unmissable, profound experience. Thank you Jesus.
Jesus, is the Son of God. That much I know. I’ve seen him with my very own two eyes, sitting; on the right hand side of his Father. Demons took me before the throne once, and he; defended me. Mercy! So, when I say ‘I thank God For Another Day’, I’m humbly bowed, to the fact that, thou I’m not worthy, yet, I’m eternally grateful, and thankful for one more day. Amen.
- Humanity is a reflection of love and that is what God is. Love*. The Kingdom of God is Love* – over and over again. This hustle will be left behind. We leave as we came. With nothing ..’ Better be prayerful that the ones you leave your hustle for, do the right thing when your time is through because the bible say’s –
Mathew 19:24: “Again I tell you, it is easier for a camel to go through the eye of a needle than for someone who is rich to enter the kingdom of God.”
