This is a photo I took on our recent road trip. I took the photo because it reminded me of a dream I had once. In my dream I saw something similar to this, in that it was a field full of gathered hay stacks, wound with string, ready for collection.
After I had the dream I felt that the Lord was showing me that the hay stacks represented small bodies of saints that were beginning to gather and meet all over the world. The small groups of saints were ones who are abandoned to Christ and are pursuing Him with all their hearts. They are embodying His life and are a living testimony of the manifold wisdom of God, to all the powers and principalities of the heavenly realms. Whereas the physical hay has been cut, raked, dried and bailed, these small bodies of saints all over the world have been tested, tried and found true and are being made ready for His works – much like the Bride being prepared and ready for the return of her Bridegroom.
I was encouraged by that dream and this view on our drive in being reminded that there is a ‘spiritual’ church being built together by God. He is building His church and getting her ready.
