Dreaming and Rejoicing represents a joyful exploration of the inner landscape within the heart of this worshipper as she dreams with God and life, beauty, and worship abound.
“I’m thanking you, God, from a full heart, I’m writing the book on your wonders. I’m whistling, laughing, and jumping for joy; I’m singing your song, High God.” Psalm 9:1-2 (MSG)
“God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams! He does it not by pushing us around but by working within us, his Spirit deeply and gently within us.” Ephesians 3:20 (MSG)
“What a beautiful home, God-of-the-Angel-Armies! I’ve always longed to live in a place like this, Always dreamed of a room in your house, where I could sing for joy to God-alive!” Psalm 84:1-2 (MSG)
Each of us have a love song that our Beloved Lord sings over us. Each song is unique, beautiful and perfect. He sees us collectively as His Bride, but He also sees us individually, and out of His creative heart, He wrote you a love song. He loves to sing to you. And there are many love songs that He will sing over us collectively. But sing your love song to Him, and listen for His love song for you.
As the songs of love burst forth, the tender blooms of hope and blessing abound. Like kisses from heaven, His love overtakes you. He dreams with you – loving to hear your heart and cherished desires – all the while the spinning and swirling notes of His song encompass you like petals floating in a gentle, spring breeze. Don’t be afraid to whisper your heart’s desires. His longing for you knows no limit. Dream again…
A Prophetic Nugget from Dyed4you Ministries called “Do Not Hesitate” is connected to this.
Ephesians 3:12 (AMPC) In Whom, because of our faith in Him, we dare to have the boldness (courage and confidence) of free access (an unreserved approach to God with freedom and without fear).
Beloved, do not hesitate. Approach Me with confidence knowing My desire is for you and My heart longs to know your heart more. Share your secrets with Me and your hopes and dreams – they are safe here, YOU are safe here. Loved unconditionally. What matters to you matter to Me.
So bring your requests and supplications. I will hear and respond. Trust Me to know what is best to do, but trust Me with your desires regardless of whether you think I’ll fulfill it or not. I cherish your thoughts, your burdens weigh on Me (cast all your cares on Me!) – I AM with you, beside you, always.
Psalm 37:4 (ESV) Delight yourself in the Lord, and he will give you the desires of your heart.

Father, thank You that our hearts are safe with You. Thank You that You love to dream with us, hear our hopes and the longings of our innermost being. You abide with us there. We pray the desires of our heart would align with Your desires for us. May we dream and hope together and may we see those secret dreams come forth and be made manifest!
