IMAGINATION – A Great Gift – Needs Discipline and Focus

Good Morning!

   Imagination is one of the greatest gifts a human can possess.   Everyone has it to a greater or lesser degree.  Once images on TV and what we heard on radio etc left a lot to our imaginations.  Today the ‘in your face’ lifestyle of most with a daily bombardment in your eyes and penetrating your mind leaves little scope to imagine  the horrors of real life.   This is why release of these images to allow natural imagination is a VITAL DISCIPLINE.  personally it is through Prayer that I surrender ALL the heartache I have as information and SEE.  Imagination must not be allowed to take over but be disciplined to focus on the unseen.   (not on self where imagination can only see self falling apart and illness etc.)

The above is an example of where imagination can be a rich gift to inspire or cause distress.

What do you see?   Where does your imagination take you?

Is it death? Is the new life weeds or beginnings of (Maybe Christmas trees)?  What about the light………Where does imagination draw you.

Perhaps it speaks nothing.  Is it a picture of devastation or of renewal.  Is it a grave?

A thought to meditate upon today………….

Let’s use imaginations this day to inspire and bring HOPE to others.     We must keep it disciplined and focussed.

Have great day and flow through this week of Promise.

About Faye

I m a wife, mother and grandmother. I have always enjoyed writing even from an early age. My book Beyond the Ashes has been written as a labour of love. All the characters are real to me and their story needed to be told. As a Christian my desire is to write General Fiction stories about real people but Hope and a desire for 'better' will always be part of the journey. I have had several short stories published over the years and moderate success in writing competitions. I realized as I was thinking today (30/01/15) that perhaps I should add here that I have had life experiences of many valley times but also many mountain top experiences. I can understand and be beside anyone who finds their life in tatters because I have 'been' there. Of course as I have got older as well there have been the added sorrows of losing not only older family members but also one by one finding the dearest of friends and the ones of greatest support and care also dying. On the site of rich mountains has been my certainty of the value of marriage and how grateful I am that after loss and sadness I made a happy and long-lasting marriage commitment. The one who was my best friend back then is still my best friend 45 years later. Beyond the Ashes touches upon the POWER of LOVE when folk can forget about their own personal 'feelings' and reach out in LOVE to a desperate and broken person.
