Years ago I was going through some trying times. I was tired, felt worn out,… exhausted. I had prayed. I had studied. I had worshipped. But as the battle went on, and on, and ON over a three year period,… with no end in sight I got tired.I remember having a dream one night.
I was in a restaurant. I could only see one other table because a light was directly above it. It was completely dark, only the other table for two that was empty, and the table I was at had light.
At my table for about four people, my head was on the menu that was on the table! I was that exhausted that I couldn’t even lift up my head to read it! I remember the water waiting for me to order after the other two people at my table had ordered. I had no idea what was on the menu, and feeling embarrassed, I just said something like, “Macaroni and cheese”.
The people at my table were laughing and talking, enjoying their time. And I just had my head laying on the table, exhausted and embarrassed.
Suddenly, I was at the other table for two! My head was still on the table, but there was someone else at the table with me. The person started singing praises to God in worship! I recognized his voice, it was Carman! (An 80’s and 90’s Christian singer)
As he sang, I began to feel better! I started to have more energy, strength, and alertness. I started to lift my head until I was sitting normally, just watching Carman whole heartedly singing praises to God! I was enjoying his singing, smiling, watching intently. Suddenly, there was a basket of fresh baked rolls at my feet. I remember taking the basket.
The point? Father was telling me that resting in His presence through singing praises, Worshipping Him, restores us! When we Worship Him, we come into His Presence! And He IS Life! (John 14:6)
The more we come into His presence, through Worship, the more Life comes to our bodies and minds! So when you feel weary, broke down, exhausted, mentally or physically, WORSHIP HIM! Just love on Him. 🙂
