Last night while we were praying and singing; I had 2 different images come to mind. Sometimes when I am "listening" for what God might be trying to say to me; an image will come to mind, which most of the time I attribute to a picture given from/inspired by God.
Later, I was thinking about distractions in life. I pictured a stairway cluttered with children's toys and thought about how easy it is to slip up on those little things we don't even see. I prayed that God would help us to see even the tiny marble sized things that are easily overlooked and could become a bigger problem/cause us to stumble and fall. I started out thinking about distractions in my own life but then ended up also seeing how this happens in marriages, churches, etc etc. Again, it seems simple but God was speaking important truth to my heart.
God loves us enough to use the language, visuals, dreams, music, nature, stories, friends ... whatever means necessary to speak to our hearts. I think all too often we miss those moments because we aren't creating space or acknowledging His presence.
