My Dream About Liberty

Something to think about as our minds are on the events we see happening today. This dream seemed very real, and I want to share it with you.

Stand fast therefore in the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free and be not entangled again with the yoke of bondage. Ga. 5:1

During our Bicentennial year,
freedom of America was on people's minds.
I had a strange dream one night,
in the dream a group of people were out at night.
Someone shouted, 'look at the sky.'
We all looked up and there was a vision of the statue of liberty.
Her head was chopped off and lay on the ground.
Her body was torn and full of holes.

The people wondered what this vision could mean.
Someone remarked, 'look at her face how beautiful she is.'
We never noticed her beauty until after she was destroyed.
In the dream soon after seeing the vision we heard a noise.
Suddenly we were experiencing an invasion
that could not be stopped.
We were over powered by horrid looking men.
We were surrounded on every side and could not escape.
They were falling down from the sky and we had to do as they told us.
'Wait,' I spoke to the people, we do have one great defense.
It is the Lord God, let's all pray the Lord's prayer together.'
Although I was only dreaming, the words took on
more meaning when I was awake again.

As I tried to interpret this dream the next morning,
I could see how we do not truly appreciate our liberty.
Perhaps after it is lost, like in the dream, we
then can see how beautiful it was.
Too late then to give praise and thankfulness for it.
Too late when liberty is completely destroyed.
Now is the time to notice; be aware of
our beautiful land and offer prayer.
It may be our only, surely the greatest
defense we will have against our foes.

Brethern you have been called unto liberty only use not liberty for an occasion to the flesh but by love serve one another. Gal. 5:13

Lets each of us say a special thank you
prayer for the freedom we enjoy.
Let's ask God to help America.
We need to be awaken to the
perils of a slack mind toward liberty.
With Patrick Henry we can say,
'give me liberty or give me death.'
That's important she should be to
every man, woman, boy and girl today.

I will walk at liberty for I seek thy precepts. Ps. 115:45
