A couple days ago I had a rather interesting dream. In this dream, there were hundreds and hundreds of bat looking demons. They were locking themselves together in the sky to block out the sun. From where I stood, I could see more and more of these things coming from underground.
Soon they had blocked the sun to the point that it was just a dark spot that didn't even hurt to look at and everything was bathed in this dark red color. All the people were afraid and everyone was crying and yelling "They've blocked out the sun! What do we do!?"
In the midst of the chaos, a person came forward and started singing worship songs to God. As the person sang, some others joined in and the demons started to fall from the sky. More people joined in and more demons fell. As long as the people kept worshiping God the demons failed, but when they stopped worshiping, the demons would start trying to block the sun again.
That was the whole dream.
Now I have a theory about dreams... most dreams I forget upon waking and try as I might, I cannot recall them. Sometimes, as in the case of this dream, I remember them after waking and all throughout the day. These are the dreams that I believe are meant to be shared and always have some sort of lesson in them.
When I woke up, I immediately related the dream to my emotional life. To me, the demons represented depression/anxiety and the sky was me. There are days when I feel like the sadness is flooding me and threatening to block out all the light. It seems like there is no way out from under it, but it is in those darkest times when my spirit is crying out, "The light is gone! What do I do!?" that I should stop and worship God.
He is the all powerful One who is full of mercy. He will clear away the darkness and bring me back to the light as long as I keep my eyes and heart on Him.
I just wanted to share this with you :) Have a wonderful day!
