Always With Me

Lately, I haven't been remembering the dreams I have. I think it's because of how late I sleep and the effects of light coming up, when I'm not too deep in sleep. But early this morning, Psalm 9 kept resonating through my brain. I held on it. I just felt like, I have forgotten all I dreamed about, but I wasnt going to let this one go, Psalm 9.

....The LORD reigns forever; he has established his throne for judgment. He rules the world in righteousness and judges the peoples with equity. The LORD is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know your name trust in you, for you, LORD, have never forsaken those who seek you...

When I managed to get out of bed, I opened a bible and read the chapter. The words, were like a kind reassurance that the one who I've found peace in, won't ever leave me. I have pressure coming from a number of quarters, but what else can be my tourniquet, my buffer, my escape?. Before I even read the chapter. A particular song from Third Day, one I couldn't stop listening to back in the days, came up in my mind and I began to sing, of course I remembered the words, it goes something like this.

I've heard all the stories, I've seen all the signs, Witnessed all the glory, Tasted all that's fine
Nothing compares to the greatness of knowing You, LordNothing compares to the greatness of knowing You, Lord
I see all the people, Wasting all their time, Building up their riches, For a life that's fine, I find myself just living for today, 'Cause I don't know what, Tomorrow's gonna bring.. So no matter if I rise or fall, I'll never be alone, oh no'' 
Those words that were spoken and written by the apostle Paul, apply just as much to our lives today as they did 2,000 years ago when he wrote them. That in our lives no matter where we could go, or who we could meet or what we could see or what we could earn or be given to us or accomplish, there is nothing in our lives, that will ever even come close to the greatness of knowing Jesus Christ our Lord." - Mac Powell, Third Day
