Psalm 126 begins, “When the Lord restored the fortunes of Zion, we were like those who dreamed…”
I get the sense as I hear these words and those that follow that the people are feeling like they are living in a sense of unreality. Their mouths are filled with laughter and their tongues filled with songs of joy. They are marveling at what the Lord has done. I have experienced those times before in my life as well – times where something so amazing has taken place, it’s like I’m in a dream and will be waking up any moment. But the beauty is that it is actually happening. I know this isn’t an all-the-time experience but I am grateful for the times when it is felt.
