Snow White lay in a deep sleep, she awakes to some commotion around her, the Handsome Prince has come to take her away. The Handsome Prince extends his hand to lift the fair maiden, but is stunned when instead of reaching back she says: "I am sure you are a wonderful man, I would love to fall in love with you, and live happily ever after, but...I was having a really good dream, and I am pretty comfortable here in my glass coffin, why don't You come back when I am ready?"
Yeah, I know sounds far fetched, but we were all in a "deep sleep" of sorts when the Prince of Peace Himself rescued us. Some of us have awaken and let the Prince take us back to His "Castle", others have told the Prince they "were having a good dream, and they were comfortable where they were", and there are even those that have looked at their Prince and have said "That's a nice fairy tale, but You don't really exisit".
I am not the best "Princess" in the world, in fact sometimes I feel as though I have been giving my wonderful, perfect Prince the silent treatment. I feel as though I am not putting my time and energy into to growing closer to my Prince, but I know, there is nothing I can do that would make my Prince leave me, because He loves me that much.
The danger of falling back to sleep, back into the wonderful world of great dreams, is you never know when the dream will end. The end would be (on a FAR GREATER scale) like a bad episode of the dating game, the contests begin to walk out, first is the One you didn't choose, words can't describe how wonderful this Man appears to you, you try to convience yourself the next has to be even better and are almost jumping up and down with excitment, when a sudden twist happens...It's the one you choose, but why is he coming out with the "loosers"? In fact he is your dream, he is everything you gave your Prince up for, and he is UGLY, he always seemed so beautiful and wonderful to you, you are having a hard time understanding what is going on. The third guy comes out, this isn't the guy you choose, but the guy you got because of the choice you made, not to choose the Prince. As he walks out a smell of sulfer over takes the room, you feel fear, anxiety, sick, every negative emotion possible, what is that thing? The contestent you have just wound up with is the one you will be spending eternity with, in his castle, aka, the very pit of hell.
I choose my Prince, it may not glitsy and glamours, or even fun to many people; but my Prince laid down His life for me, and for that, I will never leave Him. What do you choose? Do you choose a life that is in a mask, pretending to be something it's not? Or do you choose the Truth? You can't tell God on Judgment day, that you were gonna try this whole "Jesus thing" but you needed to have some fun first, you needed to make your own mistakes (which by the way God wrote a Book, specifically to help us not make mistakes). Our choices are simple follow Christ, i.e., the Prince, or take the way of the world, i.e., the dream. I don't know if you have realized, good dreams end, and when you wake up you will be disappointed, because it will be over, if you live your life in a dream, you will wake up in the ultimate nightmare.
I care for each person reading this, if you know you have made the wrong choice, and need help making the right one, send me a message, I will Pray with you.
Know Jesus, Know Peace...No Jesus, No peace
If you died today, are you absolutely certain that you would go to heaven? You can be! TRUST JESUS NOW
