When you hear God Signs, what comes to mind? Do you think about literal signs? Spiritual signs? Writing in the clouds? Or all of the above and more?
I remember hearing people talk about God speaking to them or God giving them signs. Even Shug Avery sang about the Lord speaking, I just never understood the concept. As far as I was concerned, God wasn’t speaking to me. I wanted to be special, I wanted God to speak to me, I wanted a God sign.
Now that I’m grown, when someone says God signs I think about that still, small voice you hear when requesting answers. I think about that person that comes to you discussing the very thing you prayed about. I think about that billboard you see while driving on the freeway that speaks directly to your situation.
One day while driving home in commute traffic I was thinking real hard about what I wanted to do with my life. I was thinking about the life/job/career I desired, because quite honestly, my job is just that. It affords me the means to comfortably take care of my family, and for that I’m grateful, but it is not my final act. It had been a day for me. I was irritated with work. I was irritated with the commute. I was irritated with the lack of time I got to spend with my kids because of work, and I yelled in my car alone, “God I’m ready. I’ve taken the leap. How long do I have to wait?!?” Who has ever been there? That one thing you’ve been praying about, written on your vision board, put on your manifestation list, and now you’re in the waiting period. Ha, one of these blogs I’ll talk about what to do while waiting, because the waiting can be a real frustrating place! I swear sometimes at random I can hear the jingle they play during final jeopardy playing in my head. In my frustration I heard, “do what you have to do until you can do what you want to do.” At First I thought I was tripping y’all. I know for a fact I said, “what” out loud, and again I could hear the same message, but what did it really mean? Not long after that car ride, I came across an article that talked about investing your pay, from your job, in what you really want to do. Y’all see where I’m going with this? Then came an invitation to join a group of like-minded, encouraging, women. Sign after sign after sign.
I am now clear on what God Signs are (my definition). What are some of the God Signs you’ve experienced?
Until next time…❤️
