Wierd dreams

I cannot remember the last time I woke up in a cold sweat, but last night broke the trend. I am having a hard time remembering the specifics as I write this but it went something like this.

Me and one other person, I can not remember who it was (if I know them at all), were standing around what seemed to be some sort of heavy duty well cap. There was something inside really trying to get out, and it was pounding really hard.

This dream cycled through at least three times. All I know is that when I woke up I was wide awake, and I went to my knees in prayer. I have never really been any good at interpreting dreams - especially my own - but I do know that I was pretty disturbed by it.

Verse for today:
Romans 7:18-25, ESV
For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.

So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.

Wow, that is quite vivid. I hope you figure it out and if not, then I pray that God answers the prayer you prayed.

Blessings.

Most disturbing.

Had that been my dream, the interpretation would have been obvious.

Jerry Jones and I are hearing the angst of greatness trying to escape the doldrums of mediocrity for the Dallas Cowboys.

Wonder if there's something you fear will surface that you'll have to battle? Also, interesting that it cycled three times. Hmmm.

This dream has me a little concerned to say the least. God has been kind enough to use dreams in my life in the past...

Thank you for your prayers...
