Your Room Is Magic!

Your Room is Magic -mjc

Sunday afternoons vary at our house, but this particular Sunday was perfect for three little brothers to nap in my room. I was not feeling well, and it was just easier. Going to get them settled in their room meant the high possibility of having to re-enter their room at some point due to the normal little boy insomnia that is caused by Legos, army guys, and Matchbox cars.

“Mom, I think your room is magic!” expressed the oldest little brother as if it were the newest discovery.

“Yeah!” chimed in another brother, with eyebrows lifted to reinforce his agreement.

“Why’s that?” I asked.

“Because when we have a bad dream at night, we come in your room and sleep on your couch…

and aren’t scared anymore…

and we have good dreams…

and we remember them the next day.

The brotherly chat gave me a smile outwardly. Inwardly, my mind began thinking how many times I’m fearful of the dreams of life…

…dreams turned scary

…dreams evaporated into the air

…dreams that start in one place and end in another

…dreams that I can’t recount, but I know I had them

…dreams that seem to be impossibilities

How many times do I dwell on dreams (cares of life) that make me feel scared of the dark – afraid of the unknown? What is around the corner? What if this dream transitions into something I haven't figured out? What if this dream becomes unmanageable? What if this isn't what I had planned in my dreams?

In these times, I can run to my Father’s room and bury myself in the pillow of His Word. I can cry out my heart to Him. I can listen to His gentle voice and rest in His promises. I can praise Him, and tell Him how wonderful He is. I can remember what He has done for me. I do not believe in magic per say, but I can experience the warmth and comfort that God gives me when I run to Him. He is all powerful, and coming to “His room” does what I cannot do myself.

Just as my children come to my room to be calmed of their fears or to be cared for due to sickness, so I can go to Jesus. He can calm my fears and cure my heart sickness – at any time. What a wonderful Savior!

“When thou liest down, thou shalt not be afraid: yea, thou shalt lie down, and thy sleep shall be sweet. Be not afraid of sudden fear, neither of the desolation of the wicked, when it cometh. For the LORD shall be thy confidence, and shall keep thy foot from being taken.” -Proverbs 3:24-26
“Now unto Him that is able to do exceeding abundantly above all that we ask or think, according to the power that worketh in us. Unto Him be glory in the church by Christ Jesus throughout all ages, world without end. Amen.” –Ephesians 3:20-21
