“I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.”

I have nightmares, from which I wake up flustered. They go on for days at a stretch, sometimes weeks. I panic.
I pray that I want these terrible things to stop, because they disturb my sleep and my daily routine.
But then, I think that dreams are just another tool that God uses to help us cope with life. They are things that He has made, there is nothing supernatural about them. They are as natural as the sun rising for a new day, and as miraculous. They are tools that He uses to purge us of negativity, maybe. Or to remind us that He is with us.
I don’t question the blessings that I receive. I accept them as being as natural as the air that I breathe. So why should I question God when I get these nightmares and nightmarish days? It is good for me that I be here for now. He will bring me out of the miry clay, and restore me, He renews me daily.
How am I certain He is True?
I have a Bible app on my phone. John 16:33 came as a notification right after I woke up from a rather horrific dream. I am reminded of these Bible verses. I have an inkling God is speaking to me directly. No, not an inkling. I am quite positive He is.
