“There is a fifth dimension beyond that which is known to man. It is a dimension
as vast as space and as timeless as infinity. It is the middle ground between light
and shadow, between science and superstition, and it lies between the pit of man's
fears and the summit of his knowledge. This is the dimension of imagination. It is
an area which we call the Twilight Zone.”
“We demolish arguments and every pretension
that sets itself up against the knowledge of God and we take captive every thought
to make it obedient to Christ.” 2 Corinthians 10:5
My mind was going in so many directions
that nothing I was thinking seemed real. This can’t be happening again, I thought.
Truly, somehow I’d entered a sphere of endless despair and hopelessness. I had traveled
unexpectedly into my own Twilight Zone where my every thought was being held prisoner
in some dimension between space and time. There really wasn’t any distinction between
yesterday and the present. But, I had a word and it was the anchor to my soul.

life. It didn’t have purpose. The joy was gone, replaced by an overwhelming sense
of failure and swallowed up by my worse fear.
I plodded through the next few months.
No joy, but keeping on nonetheless, committed to getting back in touch with my emotions.
In my mind I knew this ending to a season would be the beginning of something new
and better. But, the fight was still before me.
At some moment, I realized I had entertained

and lies persisted. You’ll never pull out of this. ”I can do all things through Christ…”
I’m not sure I can overcome this. “I am more than a conqueror; more than an overcomer

The fight was on. Keep going. Don’t stop! You’re almost

every negative thought and drowning my inhibitions into a sea of forgetfulness. The
battle still raged. But, the enemy was shrinking back. Now was no time to let up.
It was as though a great cloud of witnesses were before me encouraging me to press

into an unfamiliar dimension somewhere between here and there?
Proverbs 23:7 says,
“For as he thinketh in his heart, so is he.” Romans 8:6 says, “”For to be carnally
minded is death; but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” That my friend
is the true dimension known as the “God Zone.” Oh! By the way, “It is for whosoever….asks.”
That qualifies us all. So, climb aboard and let’s take this trip together.
