Was that God talking to me?

Did you read about the streetlight that flickered off as I walked past it last week?

Well, this morning as I powered towards it I was not even thinking about it.
EXACTLY as I passed it, it went out AGAIN.
All the other lights were still on again.
I wondered to myself if God was actually talking to me!


Then a car came towards me with just its parking lights on.
It made me think of “a city set on a hill cannot be hid”…. men do not "light a lamp and put it under a bushel, but on a stand, and it gives light to all in the house" ~ only today it was “a car coming down the road in darkness really needs its lights on”!
It made me think how we can sometimes live as if we just have parkers on and not on highbeam. Sometimes the culture around us seems more like early dawn than the blackest night and we switch our lights off, don’t stand out quite so much. We can become a bit complacent about the things we really want to be intentional about.

Well I do anyway.

Thank you for these thoughts, Rach. It reminds me of the power small moments can have. You seem to have a love for symbol and for the mysterious voice of God, breaking through the ordinary things in our day.

MamaMonk, I think you're right - and you said it so much more eloquently than I would have!
Thanks for your insight.
