Isiah 52:6; My people shall know My name; therefore they shall know in that day that I am He who speaks: “Behold, it is I”
The one consistent sign that has been with me for a while now (when I was living with my Ex and currently) is a number sign. The number 26 shows up everywhere, for awhile it was consistent. Whether it was on a clock or on my phone when I turned it on. Seeing things while I’m driving, etc.) AlWAYS when I need to feel his presence. This number has significant meaning to me. It’s not only my Birthday, my Dad, Mom & Grandmom all passed on a 26 of a month. I was 26 years old when my Dad passed. The first time I went to my current Church was on 2/26, which is my birthday. My address growing up began with “26”. There are 26 miles from where I live now to my Church. My Brother-in-law was even intrigued with this, he Googled his Church in VA to my Church in NJ, guess what? 226 miles! I have searched “26” in scriptures for answers and haven’t found anything that has profound meaning to my life at this moment. However, I recently read Psalm Chapt. 26, it’s pretty good.
I recently had an epiphany that “26” is my Angel (s) sign. This epiphany came to me the morning I ran my first 5 k. My family participates in the Ovarian cancer walk/run, which we do in honor of our Mom. I decided to set a new goal for myself in my new life, I was going to run not walk. I am not a runner, I have asthma and I never really ran. I contemplated that night that I was going to change my entry from a runner to a walker as I couldn’t finish 1 3/4 miles without quitting 2 days prior. Well that morning, I woke up before the alarm, I NEVER do this, I am not a morning person at all; it was 6:26 am. This gave me the boost and courage that I needed. I prayed, asked God to breathe his breath into my lungs (got this from the song “Great are you Lord”), I also prayed for the wind to be behind me, to push me over the finish line. When I wasn’t praying, I was talking to my Dad and Mom. Not only did I do it, I did it in stellar time for a virgin runner (31:32) and I haven’t been able to run much more than a mile since! I felt my Dad with me cheering me on, every step of the way. I believe that my Dad has been sending me signs all along (I had many dreams of him also, not recently but in the past when I needed to see & hear him). I believe that he has been letting me know that he is looking out for me, telling me that everything is going to be OK, better than OK (same as he told me in the dream when he was rocking my baby girl). Now that my Mom is also in heaven, I feel her with me also. Especially when I was transitioning into my new life. Thank you God for giving me my special Angels!
Coincidence or God’s whispers? The day after the race the Church sermon was titled “It’s not how you start your race, it’s how you finish it” (this is where the picture came from above).
I can’t make this stuff up! Hebrews 12: 1-2; Therefore, since we are surrounded by such a great cloud of witnesses, let us throw off everything that hinder and the sin that easily entangles. And let us run with perseverance the Race marked out for us. It was explained that the “cloud of witnesses” are our loved ones who have gone before us, our Angels or the Holy Spirit. This message was NO coincidence. I was meant to hear it. Again, it solidified what I was feeling and the happenings of days before. On my way home from Church, I got detoured off the highway and I was led to the cemetery where my Parents are. While I was there, two big birds with wide wing spans circled above me, than all of a sudden they disappeared. This all may seem unreal, but I can’t make this stuff up if I wanted to.
Isn’t God beyond Awesome? YES, HE IS!
Pray: Father, Thank you for your Word and your persistence with me as I seek to hear your voice and follow your lead. Amen
I love hearing God stories, they give me chills. My Brother-in-law has so many, we swap stories back and forth all the time. If you have a God story or as I like to call them “God Whispers”, please share with me in the Contact form. Be Blessed and keep on praying, God is waiting to hear from you!
