I dreamed last night, I walked with God;
How awesome that would be!
Just He and me and no one else—
My troubles seemed to flee.
I knew my God would do great things;
And sweep away my fears.
I thought He’d solve some myst’ries too;
And wipe away my tears.
But then I had another thought–
As the dream took shape for me.
How should I now behave with HIM!
My ev’ry fault He’d see!
Right next to him along my path,
What stride do I adopt?
How often do I interrupt?
What habits must I stop?
When I awoke my heart was stirred;
I could not find much rest…
“Does doing ‘good’ bring us to heaven?”
Well, knowing God—this is the test! John 17: 3
And then it struck me in my mind—
Behaviors do not win.
The bottom line is with the HEART; Ezekiel 36: 26
We yield; God saves from sin!
So, in my dream I learned the point—
Behavior lifts no one “above.”
‘tis true I must obey my God;
But He saves us through His LOVE!
I’m learning now to know my God,
And Christ who died for me.
This great relationship I’ve found, Revelation 22: 4
We’ll build though out ETERNITY!
