Geese & Godwinks may sound like a strange combination for this week’s prophetic blog post. When a flock of ten geese flew directly over my head earlier today on my morning prayer walk, I knew God was communicating directly to me via one of His Godwinks. I like to think of them as being heaven’s gifts sent special delivery just to me!
It took me a while to put this together as I deemed geese would just randomly appear overhead just any old time they desired. Typically, geese fly south ahead of the winter months, but they’re heaven sent year-round in my neck of the woods.
The uncanny thing is the geese not only bless us with their flyovers, but they honk loudly when doing so just as if to say, “Howdy! How are you doing today?” There have been times when they’ve been flying closely overhead and will suddenly circle back around, so they can fly directly over us. They appear when I need an extra dose of encouragement or wisdom.
Obviously, the geese don’t know this, but God in heaven surely does because He’s omniscient.
The verse that comes to me is, “Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And not one of them falls to the ground apart from your Father’s will. But the very hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear therefore; you are of more value than many sparrows.” (Matthew 10:29-31)
These verses ultimately gave birth to the popular Christian song, “His eye is on the sparrow” which has been sung by various artists throughout the years. Listening to the verses can envelop us in God’s comfort, care, and assurance.
Teamwork makes the dream work!
One of our grandson’s favorite sayings is, “Teamwork makes the dream work!” TJ loves every aspect of football. This year he played for the Wolfpack. While not participating at the university level with a team boasting that name, TJ learned a lot and is as enthusiastic as ever moving forward.
Prophetic symbols for geese are loyalty, teamwork, and family. As they fly, they’re laser-focused upon companionship and friendship. They’ll defend and stand by others of their flock until they die. Everyone should be so blessed as to have enduring, faithful friends such as these.
Additional symbols for geese are courage and fearlessness. After all, they’ve been known to fly through blinding snow to get to their destination.
Let your dreams take flight.
From a literary standpoint, wild geese represent a sense of community, care, and compassion. They fly together in a flock, but there have been times that I’ve seen a lone goose flying overhead honking to beat the band. This would symbolize pursuing an individual path in life. Another message could be that it’s high time for you to take flight, begin a journey, and pursue your dreams. Let your dreams take flight!

Godwinks are gifts.
Movies, poems, blogs, and books have all been written and produced regarding the subject of Godwinks.
Just what is a Godwink, anyway?
“God wink n. something taken as evidence that a higher power is at work; a coincidence. Editorial Note: The term was popularized by Squire Rushnell in his 2003 book When God Winks and in his subsequent books. (source: Double-Tongued Dictionary)”
“An event or personal experience, often identified as coincidence, so astonishing that it is seen as a sign of divine intervention, especially when perceived as the answer to a prayer. noun. 113. 8. Alternative form of God wink.”
I like to think of Godwinks as heaven’s gifts via special delivery from God Himself. He has uniquely created each of us and knows precisely what we need and when we need it. Ergo, there will be times when He delivers it via a Godwink!
If the supernatural realm is something you desire to learn more about, I would encourage you to continue reading your Bible and paying close attention to the dreams, visions, and visitations explained in Scripture.

She sees threes.
One of my dear friends and fellow authors sees a lot of threes during her travels and in everyday life. I felt prompted to remind her to watch for threes on a recent trip to visit her family. During the course of several days, she emailed and texted me describing various encounters with the number three. This is one of the unique ways God chooses to speak to her, and they are God’s special Godwinks just for her.
The number three is symbolic of many things, some of which are: the Trinity; the counsel of God; complete; perfect; divine fullness; a time frame such as 3 days, 3 months, or 3 years; resurrection (Jesus was resurrected on the third day – 1 Corinthians 15:4); The Holy Spirit; witness; spirit, soul, and body; and the third heaven.
Prophetic Insights For Daily Living.
#1. Have you been the recipient of Godwinks in the past? If so, in what form did they appear, and how did this minister to you?
#2. The fun aspect of Godwinks is tying the symbolism to the way that God speaks to you. I’ve memorized the various aspects represented by geese, so when I see them flying directly overhead and honking wildly, I just grin as widely as I can. This makes my heart and spirit so happy!
#3. If you’ve not experienced anything like this, pray and ask God to begin to surprise you just when you least expect it. While you’re at it, pray for others you know who would enjoy a similar experience.
#4. Have you been waiting for one of your dreams to take flight? If so, now may just be the time. Pray and ask God to send you a confirmation via one of His Godwinks.
So, dear friends and fellow readers, while it might not be sparrows flying overhead, it’s geese, and I know God is watching over me. May He do the same for you!
