Dying while still alive is a painful thing. But sometimes that is what has to happen so The Spirit can resurrect it and make whatever died glorious.
From my journal, "I don't choose the time of death in my life or in dreams."
What happens when something dies? It gets rotten, all you can do is bury it (think of a squishy apple) or throw it away. But when that apple is buried, if the soil and conditions are right, an apple tree will grow and eventually have all sorts of apples to share. Not only will there will be fruit but its very presence will be a benefit to its environment, give off oxygen, give shelter and food; protect from cold winds....all sorts of stuff the original apple could NEVER do.
So, are you dying? Are you dreams dying?
Let them die.
Let God have His way. Who knows what will be resurrected? We cannot even imagine! God's ways are so beyond our ability to think or dream.
