I am the God of mysteries. Reclaim your childhood wonder and awe and choose to follow the trails I lead you on.

I am always speaking, and every day has wondrous revelation to be found in it. You just need to open your eyes and ears and expect to find me.

Hear me speaking in the day-to-day; every time you look around, there’s a chance to see something new of me. Notice things that catch your eye that may seem small and meaningless. Take note of your dreams in the night.

I am longing to show you what’s on my heart.

Activation: Ask God to open your eyes to new ways of seeing Him. Look out for things that seem unusual; notice what quickens your spirit and catches your eye, even if it’s the smallest thing. Keep a notebook of these, as well as any dreams you have, and ask God to show you any patterns and to help you understand what they mean.

Daniel 2:22 NIV
He reveals deep and hidden things; he knows what lies in darkness, and light dwells with him.

Jeremiah 33:3 NIV
Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know.

Proverbs 25:2 NIV
It is the glory of God to conceal a matter; to search out a matter is the glory of kings.

  1. Amen! Thank you for sharing this! I will begin keeping a journal of these! As I read this post the Lord reminded me that He speaks to me through trees! I live in Western Colorado and have a photographic journey through time of several trees. One in particular is located near Telluride, the ski town so it is in the mountains. I drive by it on my way from my home, to my family home so I see it three or four times a year. Not only is the tree located in the majestic mountains near the world renowned ski town, it is also near a stream at the edge of a little meadow that speaks to the beauty of Colorado in the deepest and most pure manner. It is a magnificent pine tree, and it it stood upright, would be one of the tallest in the forest. But for whatever reason, snow, wind, or the hand of man, it has grown sideways instead up upwards! It is a monster of a tree and I’m sure the sideways weight has been a burden to the ground around its roots for many, many years. I have feared for it’s life for the past ten years and have taken photos of it almost every year.

    Two years ago when rounded the bend in the road and saw the exposed black earth I knew what had happened before I could see the torn and tattered root. The giant had fallen. It toppled and smashed its lower branches into the earth when the upper most root broke and gave way ripping other roots, and earth, and rock as it went. I grieved over “my tree” and wished that I could cross the stream and caress the remaining branches and let it know someone had watched it’s struggle to live no matter what life through at it and that had been loved, even if from afar.

    Each time I drove by there was more brown and less green as I watched the slow death from the lack of nourishment from the broken and exposed root. I took more photos than normal to try to preserve what I could. Winter, spring, summer, and fall as the world around it grew and thrived completely remiss of the slow death happening in it’s midst.

    I dreaded my trip last fall for fear of seeing more death. As I rounded that same turn in the two lane mountain road I could clearly see the exposed root, now weathered and grey. But rather than more dead, exposed branches, I thought maybe someone had cut the tree up and planted new smaller trees. There was green everywhere. rather than driving by and trying to see what had happened I drove past the tree to my pull over spot, got out and walked back for a better view. I turned around and ran back to my car, grabbed my camera and ran back to my tree viewing spot! To photograph a miracle! The top of the tree was thriving! It had new growth and was covered in new, tiny branches sprouting out everywhere. The mighty tree had not died, it had been reborn! The underneath side did have bare branches thrust deep into the ground, but the rest of the tree was more alive than it had ever been! In that moment, I felt God smile! He knew what the tree needed to thrive. He also knew the tree thriving would bring me, and all the little creatures that lived in and around that tree great joy.

    And you are right, if He can speak to me of His love and care through a tree, I need to keep a journal of such things! Then rather than have to step back into my mind to pull it up, I can pull out my journal and walk down memory lane!

    Thank you again for sharing this!! God Bless you, your family, and your team!
