A Matter of Life vs Death

A raging headache wakes me from slumber.  
I remember the dream.  
I was running through a sandstorm.  
Running from...something...something pursuing me and perilously close.  
Can't see where I'm going but I keep hearing bits of a song.
"Your Word is a light to my feet. Your Love is my identity."
Even though I can't see the path ahead, I am comforted knowing that if I focus my heart and mind on the Word I will find the right and safe path I am to take.

Awake now.  
Headache still rages.  
Heart is heavy for a dear friend facing a heart-wrenching trial. 
Our Father God will use whatever it takes, even pain, to wake us up to danger.  
Is this why I am awake right now?
If I could just get him to understand…young friend...death is in hot pursuit. RUN!
A thought forms that I have to write down word for word.
Fumbling for paper and pen in the dark.
"When the flames from the fire of hell are nipping at your feet...run as fast as you can straight into the arms of Jesus. You have no time to look back!"
No rest until it’s shared.
Praying myself to sleep.  
God please help them.  
Make Your presence known in this situation.  
Remove the blinders from his eyes.  
Help him see the love that he can fall into.  
Help him see that he is still loved…no matter what...and that fact will never change. 
Help him see himself through Your eyes.  
Not condemned...forgiven.
Do not let the enemy win this battle.

In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning. Through him all things were made; without him nothing was made that has been made. In him was life, and that life was the light of all mankind. The light shines in the darkness, and the darkness has not overcome it.
John 1:1-5
