I have these things happen all the time. I guess some of us are just more sensitive or paying closer attention to details. My mother says I noticed things very early in life and would call her attention to them. And after my near death experience last year my experiences have intensified.
Although I have many stories, I'll share the one I'm currently dealing with. Back in October 2008 I was awaken from a deep sleep. A voice was telling me to read certain chapters in The Book of Job (from the Bible). Although I was sleepy, I jotted down exactly what to read in the journal beside my bed and promptly went back to sleep. The next morning I did go read those chapters. It was basically describing everything Job lost.
I knew things were getting bad at my store and my husband had been gone for six months. Still I found the message to be puzzling. I then discussed it with my therapist and minister. They believed it was to prepare me for bad times ahead. But as hard times hit, I was to keep my faith in God. By keeping my faith things would end well.
Some mornings after reading the Bible I close it and leave it lying on the bed. Well, I had to come home early one day in May. When I walked in my bedroom I noticed that my Bible was where I left it---but, it was opened to the first page of The Book of Job. No one had been in the house and nothing else was moved. It got my attention, because I felt as though something was about to happen. And I was right.
Two weeks later after some unforeseen circumstances, we were forced to close our business. Other bad stuff continues to happen, but I don't let it get me down. I still have my faith while everything around me crumbles. It's hard to explain the peace I am experiencing from those messages. I'm curious how this saga (my own Job experience) will finally end.
I know where you are coming from. It's a great feeling, isn't it?
