A Feather In The Forest by Tina Gonzalez

“She is more precious than jewels; and nothing you desire can compare with her.”  Prov. 3:15

On a recent trip to Ruidoso, New Mexico, I found myself surrounded by Gods beauty, with endless forest trees and a variety of critter and deer. A spiritual download started as The Lord begin to speak to me. His creation is not only beautiful but scientifically, medically and physically amazing. But even more amazing, is Gods human creation. The world wants us to think that we are all to be the same….mass produced from the same mold. The world wants us to believe that we don’t have a voice , and we are to do, say, think and behave alike, and in a certain way. That life in the womb is trivial, and it is okay to throw away Gods precious design  with a simple” yes” and a wave of a hand. Oh my friends…… Nothing could be further from the truth!

“A Feather in The Forest”

If a feather falls in the forest….
Would you hear or see it fall?
Consuming rains come moving what once was,
Leaving bareness – openness
Depositing new life and calm.

Who can truly understand?
Who can fully know?
How fearfully you are knitted – beautiful
Wonderfully one of a kind!

“For you formed my inward parts; you knitted me together in my mothers womb. I praise you for I am fearfully and wonderfully made.” Psalms139:13

If a feather falls in a forest…..
Would anyone know or comprehend?
The intricacy – the details
So vividly showed and confound.

The trees breathe and the plants pour out their seed,
But the animals of the forest are concealed
Except those that fly high above the trees.
Yet each feather that falls – each seed that takes root
Is neither hiding or despaired,
But intimately getting ready for the beauty that springs forth.

Artists come and go,
The canvas lights and fades….
But the beauty of Gods Daughters,
Is poured- out for His display!

“Fear not, for I have redeemed you; I have called you by name, You are Mine.”  Isaiah 43:1

Little-one, Little-one…..why can’t you see?
How immeasurable is your worth,
And beautiful is your name!

For nothing slips by Him,
No…..Not even one single breath!
Each so perfectly woven,
Framework beyond and surpassed!!

“Listen to Me, O royal daughter; Take to heart what I say…..Your royal Husband delights in your beauty; Honor Him, For He is your Lord.”  Psalms 45:10-11

If a feather falls in a forest,
You might now more fully understand.
Lying hidden in the foliage of the vast forest beds.
How much more valuable you are to our Creator….
Magnificent – Unsurpassed
We are fearfully and wonderfully made!

“He covers me with His feathers and under His wings I find shelter.” Psalms 91:4Seasons come and seasons go…..But the One who holds your every breath?
He is the same Savior and King ~ The One who holds it all!!

    I always believed we were all like presents…..might have different wrapping & come in different shapes and sizes. But people still don’t know what truly is inside until it’s opened and truly admired!! Not just glanced at an on to the next. So thank you for sharing The Feather cause if studied….you would notice all the detailed weaving and the care put in each one
