Rocky Ground

Today, I had a vision.

I was walking on rocky ground, the craggy rocks the size of basketballs and footballs.  It was grey and overcast, and the ground sloped slightly.  I could not get my footing.  I was struggling and afraid.

Then, Psalm 9 verse 10:

"Those who know your name trust in you,
    for you, O Lord, do not abandon those who search for you."

"Where should I look?  Up?  Down?  Forward?  Left?  Right?  Behind?  Tell me, and I will turn my eyes."

A Voice answered: "Look here."

I looked and saw a face appear where there had been none before.  The air shimmered to let Him through.  

"Look at me," He said.  I did.  We started to walk and I started to stumble.  I looked down and saw Death at my feet.  A hand, a face, buried in the rubble.  She looked like me but not me either.  I gasped.

The Voice spoke: "That vision is not from me."  Its authority drew me back to Him.

I mentally struggled and then pushed Death out of my mind.  I refocused on Him.  He clasped my hands, walking backwards in front of me, urging me forward.

The scene flickered as I walked.

Where grey, overcast skies had been, blue skies replaced them.  The jagged ground was actually a hilly meadow, filled with soft grass and wildflowers, bees buzzing, birds flitting.  The sun kissed everything with its warmth.

I smiled.

"This was here all along."

He smiled.

"Yes.  Now, walk with me."


  1. Wow - what a difference perspective makes. What a difference Jesus makes. A beautiful retelling of your walk with Him today.

  2. Oh, how lovely. Thank you for sharing this encouraging vision of the truth of Christ's presence. Let me focus on Him rather than on satan's smokescreen.
