A few years ago I wanted to see God in my every day – the things that are around me. I asked God, not for signs, but for reminders. I wanted to be reminded of His promises for me.
Psalm 91:4 “He will cover you with his feathers, and under his wings, you will find refuge. His truth is your shield and armor.”
Now, whenever I see a feather that I am reminded that God is protecting me. This is very helpful when I am feeling attacked by others, when I feel alone, or just sad. I can envision God holding me and saying “I’ve got you. You think you’re going
through this alone but you’re not. I’m right here with you.”
It always helps me redirect my thoughts back to Him and not leave them stuck on the person who is causing this disruption in my life.
When I am feeling yukky I will go outside, into God’s creation (God can show me these things inside my house but it is filled with my stuff). I take a walk to clear my head, I talk to God the entire time and I listen to the wind blowing and feel it on my face, I hear the leaves rustling, the dogs barking, the birds chirping. I notice the beautiful birds gliding through the air just enjoying life. I look down and find a feather! God’s reminder that He is protecting me. I started collecting them and taping them to my “Spiritual Journal”. This is not my everyday griping sessions journal, this is my God moments journal. I write down when God puts something on my heart. If I hear a scripture and it makes me go “hmm” then I write it down. If I hear or see the same scripture or word over and over in a day or so, then I write it down. I know God is communicating to me I just have to listen. I am able to go back to this journal and see where God has directed me along my journey.
