There are certain nights I couldn't sleep, most especially when my day has been particularly heavy or when I fail to communicate with particular people. I had dry spells over a month and I felt the Lord a bit far from me. I received no consolations and I felt the intensity of my inordinate desires increasing.
We've been taught that dreams are extensions of our daily lives... when what was not given any particular attention or neglected or unaccepted has been pushed to the subconsciousness. They lay like icebergs waiting for "titanic" to nudge it to emerge into the conscious state...
I sang David's psalm of trust that made my heart serene...
"My soul rests in God alone, from whom comes my salvation. God alone is my rock and salvation my secure height; I shall never fall..." ---Psalm 62,2-3
