Nightmares

Recommended Posts

When I was 5 I had started having dreams, more like nightmares, that would come true. It had scared me a lot, as a result I had blocked out my intuition. I never told anyone about thous nightmares, because I didn't think anyone would understand. No one in my house ever talked about dreams. I was worried and still constantly worry that I will not be excepted if I say or do something wrong. For this reason I hid and still hide all things that bother me. I want to appear like I am happy kind of person. I always felt it's unfair to burden others with my problems. I think that this feeling was great justification for not wanting anyone to see how vulnerable I really am.

My grandmother used to say to me "A closed mouth never gets fed"...what that means, if you don't open your mouth and tell someone what you are going through, you may never get the help you need.  It's amazing because usually when you say something to someone, they have either dealt with it themselves or has known someone who has or is going through what you are experiencing.
 
The fact that you wrote this out is a step in the right direction.  Night terror dreams are NOT uncommon.  It's designed for the enemy to torment you in your mind and in your life.  It's the devil's will for you to keep it to yourself so you can remain in the dark cold room that he's tormenting you in.  The moment you tell someone, you are opening the door to expose him for what he really is.  He's lied to you and said that you won't be accepted by anyone, but I'm here to tell you that God has ALREADY accepted you through His Son Jesus Christ.
 
"...just as He chose us in Him before the foundation of the world, that we should be holy and without blame before Him in love, having predestined us to adoption as sons by Jesus Christ to Himself, according to the good pleasure of His will, to the praise of the glory of His grace, by which He made us accepted in the Beloved." Ephesians 1:4-6
 
I have news for you...being vulnerable is the place of strength.  The Bible speaks about how God's strength is made PERFECT in our weakness so when you try to put on a strong exterior, you are really being weak because you are not allowing God in to be your strength.  It's in your vulnerability that you are stronger so embrace that and find someone you can trust to open up to.  You just did that by posting this message so I'm here to encourage you to continue.  I'm praying for you...

I am not from the kind of family where people talked about their emotions or the way we feel about things. My mother is very analytical person and tends to analyze everything that I tell her, but she doesn't know how to help me when I do try to talk to her. I don't really know anyone I can trust with this kind of things. I don't have any close friends.
