I had a dream the other day about someone I know. In this dream I quickly ran to them making attempts to apologize for anything they might have felt I had done against them and proceeded to give this person the deepest hug one could give.
I stretched out my arms, wrapped them around this individual and saw myself crying. My cries were filled with so much energy, however the person I was crying for and hugging had absolutely no reaction.
Not a turn of the head, not a tear, not a smile, not even a gentle rub on the back. In fact this person stood at the door looking on to a scene of trouble and chaos as it was unfolding. As though it could never happen to them.
A family , a mother , and some relatives had gotten them selves into trouble and were being detained. This person I was hugging simply looked on as though they had no emotions.
I recall going back into my room with my son. There I saw a wooden poll with sap that was gushing out prior to my hug. Now the sap had pushed itself right back into the wooden poll.
Ezekiel 7:9King James Version
“And mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity: I will recompense thee according to thy ways and thine abominations that are in the midst of thee; and ye shall know that I am the Lord that smiteth”

Like any loving parent God gives us chances to turn about. Often times we are given more chances than deserved. Like a stubborn child who refuses to take heed to their parents instructions. We sometimes allow our actions, sin, abominations, to lead us down a path of both brokenness and destruction.
