Dream Or Reality?
Is it just a distant dream, this vision that I see
To know my Heavenly Father as a warm reality?
To sense the blessed comfort within His precious Word
To know His deep compassion behind each word I’ve heard.
To understand the heart that knows the real me
To believe that I’m protected, that He’s my security
To know that He is near, His Spirit is inside me
To believe that He will never leave as a strong certainty.
To experience the presence of God that evil cannot harm
To give all my cares to Him and rest within His arms
To feel His joy and fellowship, His love without an end
To know God as my Father and as my trusted friend.
To believe I can depend on Him to provide my greatest needs
To know that He sees into my heart and hears my silent pleas
To believe He is there for me and holds my hand when I’m alone
As a parent stands beside their child and loves their very own.
To know that He created me and I will never be forsaken
To understand He is my fortress and He will not be shaken
To believe He is grieving with me as I suffer through my pain
To know that He will strengthen me and hold me once again.
To be confident that everything in my life is in His control
To believe that my Father is watching me and guarding my soul
To sense His love so real, to experience Him in my heart
What comfort and peace to know we will never, ever part.
Yes – that is my deepest prayer, my dream that I want to see
And I thank you, Father, that this dream can be a present reality.

And because ye are sons,
God hath sent forth the Spirit of his Son into your hearts,
crying, Abba, Father.
