Psalm 91:4 “He will cover you with His feathers. He will shelter you with His wings. His faithful promises are your armor and protection.”
I sent a text to a friend. I wanted to encourage her and so I said, "I hope God shows you today how much He loves you and that he sees you. I hope you see a feather as a reminder." I’m not sure why a feather, but that’s what popped into my head. She wished the same back to me. I prayed silently to God, show my friend that you see her, and you haven't forgotten her.
A couple of hours later, she sent me this text...
Since then feathers and Y's have been showing up everywhere! Why they Y's you ask? What do they mean? Well, Jennifer Dukes Lee, started me on the Y's. Y is for Yahweh-God.
A few years back she started noticing the Y's. In trees, on signs, sticks, roads. You name it she saw it. It was like God's way of reminding her that He was with her.
I think as fallible human beings we tend to forget, and we need the physical reminders that God is close.
After a hard day. After a disappointing day. After a downright no- good- day-let-me-throw-in-the-towel-day. We need to remember God is God and can be trusted.
And for me, God uses feathers. I’ll look down and see it laying on the ground like it’s been waiting for me to notice.
