    Default God reached out to me..

    I'm matt and this is my first post on this forum. I am catholic, however, I admit I don't go to mass as much as I should. I am looking to get some kind of feedback if possible. I has a very powerful dream last night that has me puzzled. A little background without going into a novel about myself. I don't get very good sleep, and I hardly dream, and I don't I get rem sleep, that I know of. Sometimes I wake up 2-5 times a night, but last night was very powerful, and very vivid from what I can recall. (It woke me up, but I didn't get up and write anything down)

    It felt like an timeline of my life. I mean, that's really the best description I can give you. Like a blur I guess. It got to a point in my life in 2005 to my car accident that should've, and could've killed me. (Then I heard the voice,but I'll get to that later) I mean that in every sense. I would say thirty seconds or so before the accident happened, somethingor someone told me to put my seatbeat on and I didn't think twice. (I know I know. I was a stupid young kid, since that incident I've never done it again) once that picture of my accident finished, it's hard to explain, but a very loud, very bold voice told me there was a reason he showed me that, and that I need to do something before it's too late. Something along the lines of that.

    I immediately woke up. I prayed for a few min but I fell back asleep. Why would God show me only up to that point in my life for? Since then I have to admit that accident took a toll on my life, and it hasn't been the same. I have preeminent injuries. Am I getting ready to die? I'm only 32. What does it mean? Is all this punishment for what I did before the accident? Nothing crazy, but stupid stuff. I understand the obvious, God wants me too repent and turn to him, but why am I shown that part off my life for? That was more then ten years ago.

    You where probably destined to die in that car accident. But God decided to interviene in your life history to make you live longer then you would have.. He probably did it out of mercy for you .. I would take this opportunity to seek Gods will b y reading the Gospels and the entire New Testament.. There may be a truth you need to read and accept that is essential to your eternal life.. Seek God with all your mind and all your heart and God will lead you to what you need to know ,, what you need to respond to..

    May The Holy Spirit guide you in the Way of salvation.

    It’s my understanding & belief that God does not punish in the ways we think of as children. Instead, God disciplines to mature us in faith. There are answers to every question we have that only God provides, and it’s up to Him to reveal these to us. It’s also my belief that our personal relationship with Him requires a daily reading of His word to find knowledge, understanding, and wisdom needed to submit and obey to His will for our life. God loves us and desires that we trust His promises and find strength we need to fulfill all the good He has planned for us. Only by reading His word will we find answers to questions to then step out in faith while joyful in sharing these truths with others.
    I believe He has a purpose and plan for each of His children. Only when we read The Bible will we come to know His faithfulness in providing His truths to apply in our lives and truly live the life we were meant to live. May God bless you today!

    If I'm understanding you correctly God saved your accident was 12 years ago and you're just now seeking Gods part in it?
    No I personally don't think you are about to die but I do believe that God has been very patient with you.
    You were saved for a reason. God doesn't want anyone to perish. Seek Him. Ask Christ to come into your heart. There is rest and joy in salvation!

    God Bless You
    Psalm 51:17 My sacrifice,O God is a broken spirit; a broken and contrite heart you,God will not depose.

    If you've been reminded of a time you heard and listened, perhaps it is a reminder that you need to listen to Him.

    Mass wont save you. Or keep you saved. You must be born again and trust Christ alone for your salvation. Are you afraid to die? If you belong to Him you shouldn't be.

    May God give you understanding and peace.

    I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge — that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.

    just dream and nothing special. All of us experienced dreams like this, it's just depending of how we interpret it. All you have to do is to be thankful to God that you were being spared during that car accident. Seek Him with all of your heart, know Him even more.
    But they that wait upon the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings as eagles; they shall run, and not be weary; and they shall walk, and not faint.

    Isaiah 40:31

    God doesn't punish people...he may warn them though. If you're not living right, Satan will act in your life. John is a good gospel to start on. Memorize Ephesians 6 and Psalm 91. Blessings to you on this journey.

    Yes, God still deals in dreams and visions. Over the years He has instructed, rebuked, chastised and encouraged through dreams and visions. We are told this in the book of Acts. In 2013 another driver tried to kill me. He didn't know it of course. The Lord showed me that night a giant hand between our cars and told me "I have kept you from the death angel". My car was totaled, God saved my life - and yours.

    Seek Him with all of your heart He has things for you. Pour out your heart before Him in prayer. Lies, lusts, hatreds, dishonesty. Tell Him - NOT ANOTHER - every rotten thing in you life according to Psalm 62:8. He already knows. Search after His face, His presence as you would for a treasure. You know in your heart that He saved you in this thing and it's for a purpose. Cast out tradition, denominations, religion, tradition and go after Jesus Christ with all of your heart and soul and strength and mind... And He will be found of you.

    Jeremiah 29:13-14 KJVS
    And ye shall seek me, and find me , when ye shall search for me with all your heart. [14] And I will be found of you, saith the Lord : and I will turn away your captivity, and I will gather you from all the nations, and from all the places whither I have driven you, saith the Lord ; and I will bring you again into the place whence I caused you to be carried away captive.

    Jeremiah 31:3 (NKJV)
    The Lord has appeared of old to me, saying:
    “Yes, I have loved you with an everlasting love;
    Therefore with lovingkindness I have drawn you.

    "For whom the Lord loveth he chasteneth, and scourgeth every son whom he receiveth." Hebrews 12:6

    I was mistaken in my earlier post. Yet, rejoice for He loves you and will make a way if you open your heart and "sin no more". God bless!
