I had a word at church today and didn't give it.
What a disappointing feeling it is not having said what God showed me. Standing in front of the church can be a bit nerve wracking. Not standing in front of the church speaking His word is a worse feeling, in retrospect.
Here's the picture I had:
Everyone in the church had a light bulb over their head with a pull chain attached. Some people pulled their chain and their light came on while other lights did not come on. The persons whose light did not come on were in complete shock and were more concerned with the light bulb not working than really looking at the darkness they've been living in for some time. What God wants us to remember is that He always knows where we are living. That He can turn our light on again if we look to Him. We cannot have one foot in light and another in darkness.
