Calm the Storm

Dreamt a lot last night and each one was crazier than the last. The one that really sticks with me though is the Holy Spirit dream. I was in a lecture hall and I was told the Holy Spirit dwells in each of us and works like Jesus did to calm the storm. Remembering that Bible story of the disciples on the boat with Jesus asleep and the storm came up and it was wild and very frightening. Jesus woke up and said, "Be Still." or something to that effect and the storm listened and behaved. I was told in that dream that we are the boat and we have the Holy Spirit with us. Life is filled with storms that frighten us and toss us around threatening destruction and mayhem. We have the Holy Spirit to calm the storm if we allow it. All the addictions and bad behaviors we indulge in are very often used to ease the pain of the storm or the fear or the discomfort and anxiety. If the storm is calmed there is no need for those behaviors. The pain controls the addiction. No pain. No need for the pain killer. I need to trust the Lord and let the Holy Spirit do His work.

Have a wonder filled day.

I don't think that was a crazy dream at all! Very profound! And much better than all of the ones I've been having. Wow, Gemma!
