Array ( [sid] => 115572 [catid] => 1 [aid] => mick [title] => I DREAMED OF HEAVEN [time] => 2006-02-28 13:42:12 [hometext] => JUST A MESSAGE FROM GOD I WOULD LIKE TO SHARE, COMMENTS ARE WELCOME [bodytext] => LAST NIGHT I HAD A DREAM
THE CHURCH WAS CALLED AWAY
I DREAMED THAT CHRIST STEPPED ON
THAT CLOUD AND I COULD HEAR HIM SAY

COME HOME MY FAITHFUL CHILDREN
YOUR JOURNEY NOW WILL END
YOU FOUGHT THE FIGHT
YOU KEPT THE FAITH
THE VICTORY NOW YOU WIN

AS I ENTERED INTO HEAVEN
OH ! WHAT GLORY MY EYES BEHOLD
I WALKED AND TALKED WITH JESUS
DOWN THE STREET OF PUREST GOLD

HE TOLD ALL THE STORIES
IN THE BIBLE ONE BY ONE
HE TOLD ME WHY HE DIED FOR ME
AND WHY GOD GAVE HIS ONLY SON !

HE TOLD ME WHEN HE SAVED ME
UPON MY HEART HE PLACED
A BURDEN FOR ALL LOST SOULS
TO LEAD THEM TO HIS GRACE

HE TOLD ME HOW I FAILED HIM
AND CAUSED HIM TEARS AND PAIN
AND NOW I STAND IN JUDGEMENT
WITH MY HEAD BOWED LOW IN SHAME

HE SAID , MY CHILD I GAVE YOU
SOME SIMPLE THINGS TO DO
AND NOW I MUST ASK YOU
WHY YOU DIDN'T SEE THEM THROUGH

I ONLY ASK YOU TO VISIT AN OLD FRIEND IN NEED
TO ENCOURAGE THEM WITH A WORD OF PRAYER
AND PLANT IN THEM MY SEED

WERE YOU ASHAMED TO INVITE THEM
TO VISIT AT YOUR CHURCH ?
OR WERE YOU AFRAID THEY'D TURN YOU DOWN
AND YOU KNEW HOW THAT WOULD HURT ?

WELL NOW I MUST REMIND YOU
OF THE TIMES I CAME TO YOU
IT TOOK MORE THAN JUST ONE VISIT
FOR YOU TO LISTEN TOO !!

I KNOW YOU GOT DISCOURAGED WHEN
THEY LAUGHED AND CALLED YOU NAMES
BUT YOU SHOULD HAVE LET THEM KNOW
YOU LOVED THEM JUST THE SAME

SO NOW WE WALK TOGETHER
AND THEY ARE LEFT BEHIND
OH ! WHY DID YOU NOT VISIT THEM,
JUST THIS ONE LAST TIME ?

IN THAT MOMENT I WAS AWAKENED
AND THE TEARS RAN DOWN MY FACE
I KNEW I HAD FAILED MY LORD
AND I FELT SUCH PAIN AND DISGRACE

I KNELT BESIDE THAT BED OF MINE
AND PRAYED FOR HOURS WITHOUT END
THAT HE WOULD GIVE ME ONE MORE CHANCE
TO LEAD THOSE LOST SOULS IN

I PRAYED THAT HE WOULD GIVE ME STRENGHT
TO VISIT THOSE IN NEED
SO I COULD PLACE WITHIN THEM
MY SAVIOR'S HOLY SEED !!

MY LIFE ON EARTH WILL END SOMEDAY
AND IN JUDGEMENT I WILL STAND
WITH MY EYES GAZING UPWARD
AT THE BOOK WITHIN HIS HANDS

WHEN HE READS MY LIFE STORY
OF THE DEEDS I MUST DO
I WANT TO HEAR HIM SAY
MY CHILD ! I'M GLAD YOU SAW THEM THROUGH

SO FRIEND I ENCOURAGE YOU
TO VISIT THOSE IN NEED
BECAUSE OUR SAVIOR KEEPSA RECORD
OF THOSE SIMPLE LITTLE DEEDS !!!

I GIVE GOD THE GLORY FOR THIS POEM , FROM HIM I GET MY INSPIRIATION

Living a life without God is like having to survive on mussels and no rock to walk out on to get them. Many are starving because they have no rock to stand on.

Your poem is precious...

AND WHY GOD GAVE HIS ONLY SON !

HE TOLD ME WHEN HE SAVED ME
UPON MY HEART HE PLACED
A BURDEN FOR ALL LOST SOULS
TO LEAD THEM TO HIS GRACE

Father God, Father Son (Jesus) has been where we are and He knows how it feels to be ourselves, because He is one of us. Notice I said (is), not was.. Jesus Christ is Lord, and He is worthy of all worship and praise. If you want to know what Father God, Father Son (Jesus Christ) looks like.. look deep into your own image, for He made us in His own image.

Very beautiful poem, prayer for our creator.

Faith is by its nature non malleable, fervent, impetous, and absolute. Consequently, it is a terrible thing to marrry to religeon. My friend, let me tell you something that I know for sure: THERE IS NO HIGHER COURT THAN MANS OWN RED HEART.
