I walk along the sandy beaches of my dreams listening to God’s voice in the wind. Whispering softly, ‘You are home.’ I feel the caress of the oceans lapping waves. The waves so calm and serene they seem inviting. I close my eyes and feel hands upon my shoulders and a voice in my ear. ‘Now is the time…dive in.’ A voice so soft, it left me feeling lighter than air.
I walk stealth fully into the crystal tide and as I get deeper in the waves, my body begins to glow and fill with a deep serenity that that I never imagined possible. Finally I let go of control and float allowing the flow of life to go through me. I look up and see the moon smiling at me, so I smile back. As I keep floating along, the glowing becomes much brighter and the serenity much deeper. Until finally I glow like the moon and, I am engulfed in a fire. Nude in mid-air, engulfed in flames of a fiery passion and love. The passion and love of Christ. As I open my eyes. I see the Lord walking on the waves. As I open my eyes, I see the Lord walking on the waves. He grabs me and I am cradled in the arms of Christ, and am clothed by the messengers he has with him.
I look in his eyes and ask ‘why?’ …’you asked and now you will receive,’ he said. His eyes never leaving mine, both filled with a love that none could compare. ‘You will receive me…you are troubled and now I will carry you.’ I close my eyes and nestle my head into the chest of my savior as he carries me, as a child, through my storms.
