enter the forest

What comes to mind when you think of a forest?

Lots of trees?
How is visibility?
Can you tell your direction?
Is it quiet, loud, distracting?
Are you afraid?

The proverbial … “not seeing the forest for the trees” means something like “he’s seeing the details but not the overall picture” or “he has all the facts but can’t put them together so they mean something”. Ginia

I’m often focusing on the trees. Nature teaches so much but we hear God best when distractions are gone.

How can we quiet our lives and our minds to hear?

That’s where I still give thanks my car antenna broke years ago and hasn’t been fixed.

Be joyful always; pray continually; give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God’s will for you in Christ Jesus.

Do not put out the Spirit’s fire; do not treat prophecies with contempt. Test everything. Hold on to the good.
1 Thessalonians 5:16-21
