IMPORTANT!!!!! Please Read. True Story


                This morning I was sleeping as usual to about noon. I kept waking up periodically, but for some  reason I couldn’t get up. At about 12:40 I went to sleep for the last time, continuing my extremely weird dream. But it ended abruptly. There was suddenly a picture of Jesus hung on a cross dying. A voice similar to mine said, “You did not serve me well then and still not now.” I woke up alert, but instead of running like I felt like doing, I started crying. I felt so ashamed of what human kind had done. Still, I took a deep breath and closed my eyes. The voice came to me saying things, “I will hire you.” “Hawk Nelson.” Suddenly the song Let’s dance came on, “I don’t wanna look inside myself, cause then I’ll have to change something else and I don’t want to look like someone else, I’m happy in my skin, with myself let’s dance.” I woke up knowing he only wanted me to tell all of you about it.


                I’ve had a sense that I hadn’t completed a dream all this week. Now I know why. When I saw Jesus there I was freaking out. My human instinct told me get up and run. But he had said something important, and even though he sounded like me, I knew it was him. “You did not serve me well then, and still not now.” He was trying to tell me he knew we would never truly serve him on our own. We serve him when we feel like it. He still loves us all, but he craves love from all of his children. “I will hire you.” This was him trying to tell me that even though we sometimes are reluctant to serve, he still hires us to spread his love and truth. He doesn’t care that human kind crucified his son, because he sent Jesus as a sacrifice for all of us. Yes he was still sad, but he is sad when all of us die and rejoices when we come to him. Now when I heard him say, “Hawk Nelson,” it threw me off a bit. I heard the music so clearly it was like it was playing in my ear. I knew he was trying to tell me that he hate to see us destroying ourselves and what he created to fit into the lost world. He wants us to be us. To stick out of the crowd and to be ourselves. He doesn’t want us to look in the mirror and see someone else. He wants us to see him inside of us. He want us to be happy in OUR skin and dance for joy because of it.
