Communication is at a premium. And, we need to place a premium on our communication skills. Put a premium on peace and stability. Political talks, religious talks, family talks, and relational talks on all levels and fronts.
We find many times our communication skills look Bokeh. While Bokeh may be a great form for photography it might just lack the higher quality in our words. Our words become blurred or fuzzy when meant to be clear and precise.
If we want to go to a higher level with our words to stimulate the idea of Bokeh, we need to have a higher way of thinking. If we stay focused on what’s happening in the natural realm to fill our thoughts we will not experience Bokeh. It would be the supernatural realm happening in our communication that would produce the Bokeh effect. I think most of us, if not all, want to experience what God is doing behind our natural way of thinking.

“Bokeh is a photographic term referring to the appearance of out-of-focus areas in an image produced by a camera lens using a shallow depth of field. Different lens bokeh produces different aesthetic qualities in out-of-focus backgrounds, which are often used to reduce distractions and emphasize the primary subject.”
God’s ways are higher than our ways. He is working on our behalf behind the scenes in the supernatural realm. We are to keep an attitude of faith and sit in a position with our hands and heads open to the supernatural and embrace the out of focus blessings that come by activating our Faith in words. As we do, we move forward through the open doors of blessings that God has prepared and waiting patiently for us to enter. The Apostle John while on the Isle of Patmos reveals, “I know what you do. I have put an open door before you, which no one can close. I know you have little strength, but you have obeyed my teaching and were not afraid to speak my name.” Rev 3:8 (NCV)
John further reveals the thoughts of Jesus, “Look! I stand at the door and knock. If you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in, and we will share a meal together as friends. Those who are victorious will sit with me on my throne, just as I was victorious and sat with my Father on his throne.“Anyone with ears to hear must listen to the Spirit and understand what he is saying to the churches.” Verses 20-22 (NLT)
I pray that each of us will sit at our Thanksgiving Table and share a meal together as friends as we have been invited to do in this invite from Revelation. Keeping our conversation Spiritual Bokeh! Yes, Communication is at a Premium!
Happy and blessed Thanksgiving to you, family and friends!
