II Chronicles 7:14

If my people, which are called by my name, shall humble themselves, and pray, and seek my face, and turn from their wicked ways; then will I hear from heaven, and will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.

Dream On

Do you guys believe that dreams have meanings? Do you think it is mere coincidence when you have the same dream several nights in a row? Do you think that you are in control of your dreams? Do you think food or activity affects dreams?
I have been having a reoccuring theme in my dreams for about a week now. It's not good. I wake up every day in a sour mood and it literally takes me like an hour to shake off the "memories" of what just happened. I'm totally frustrated by it and I want it to STOP! But how can I possibly change what my mind does while I'm asleep? I've tried changing up what I do before I go to bed....meaning one night I watched TV, one night I read my Bible, and last night I read Joyce Meyer's "The Battlefield of the Mind" book before falling asleep. It doesn't seem to matter. All of a sudden this morning, I am reflecting on the whole thing and starting to get paranoid that this "theme" in my dreams is possibly a warning sign that something could be going on along these lines in real life....!!??? Probably not, but maybe it does mean something. I don't know...
What do you guys think?

I'm not exactly sure. I know sometimes our dreams are caused by things we had been thinking about during the day.
But then again, I also know that sometimes God gives us dreams for a reason.
If it's something bad, it could also be the devil putting this in your mind to make you worry. Remember, worry and fear are not of God! Turn it over to HIM and pray about it, I bet you'll feel 100% better.

Before you go to bed, Read Psalm 91 *outload* in your bedroom. Read it with conviction. Anytime that you feel you are being attacked spiritually, this will usually nip it in the bud. I'll do this too when I have bad dreams. When we bless our homes, this is one of the prayers that is usually read. It's so comforting..one of my faves.

If it's fear, it's not God. If it's Peace, it IS God. Every time.

Jen, when I have a dream that 'bothers' me I first pray and if I don't 'shake' it I just continue to seek God unitl I get direction. Hope this helps!
