Bloom {Into Beautiful}: Like A Lion


Like A Lion

Hello, ladies!

Once again, God has changed my message. I had planned to write a sweet sentiment to 2013 and all that He has done for me. However, last night I prayed that if this was not what He wanted me to write, that He would open my eyes to what He wanted. Then came this dream.

In the dream I was standing talking to someone and I hear this man screaming... "Help! He's chasing me! Help! The lion is right behind me!" The look on this man's face was that of pure terror. He was SCARED. This house had many doors... They were all open before he came running through. The man finally reached the point of the doors and we began closing and locking them one by one. 

We were inside. We heard the lion reach the first door. Seconds later, he broke through. We both knew that we had to get somewhere SAFE. We ran up what seemed like twenty flights of stairs before we finally found a room. There were other people here as well. Then a Man showed up. A Man Who knew what we had done wrong; what had caused this to happen to us. He explained to us that we hadn't been keeping the doors closed as we were told and that our locks weren't strong enough.

The rest of the dream is a blur... but I believe God showed me what He wanted me to see. After I woke up, I honestly didn't think much about the dream. But then I began analyzing, picking it apart... then that still, small voice spoke and said, "It was Me." God gave me this dream so that I could deliver this message to ya'll today. After prayer and quiet time with God, here I am, writing what He has given me. 

Who was the lion? Satan.

"Stay alert! Watch out for your great enemy, the devil. He prowls around like a roaring lion, looking for someone to devour."
- 1 Peter 5:8 -

Satan is always looking for a way into our hearts (the house). There are many entrances to our heart. Whether it be through our family or friends, music, our job, movies, husband/wife, ect. Satan is going to try to weasel his way in somehow. Thats why Scripture tells us this:

"Guard your heart above all else, for it determines the course of your life."

- Proverbs 4:23 -

If we aren't guarding our heart (closing the doors to evil) then how do we expect to keep the devil out of our lives? Sometimes we do have these doors closed, but they aren't locked. We let one or two things in and before you know it, they don't even have to knock anymore. 

Have you left your doors open? Have you let Satan take over your heart? Girl, let me tell you something. Jesus can help you! Just as in my dream, He is the Man Who will show up and tell you all you've wrong and open your eyes to how to get past it! He is the answer. He wants your heart. But not just part of it, ladies! He wants your WHOLE HEART! He will help you conquer Satan...

"You will trample upon lions and cobras; you will crush fierce lions and serpents under your feet!"

- Psalm 91:13 -

...but you have to come to Him with a repentant heart and LIVE for HIM! Just as this Psalm says... God will help those who follow Him. He will give you strength. Look to Him; He is our HOPE.

I hope you ladies enjoyed this. I'm a firm believer that when God gives someone a message, they better share it! If any of ya'll ever need someone to talk to, email me ( and I will pray with you, look up Scripture for you, whatever it is that you need! 

Until next time...
