I picked up this book today called “Conversations with God.” If any of you have read it, I’m sure you understand where i’m coming from. For those of you who haven’t, I truly recommend it. Not because I think you need to be saved or anything, but simply because this book really makes you think. I love it when they do that. It’s not just something to keep you entertained, like most things now a days are, but instead, if you read it with an open mind, it truly helps you to reflect.
Now, I’ve always been the type of person to have a relationship with God. I’ve always searched for Him in one way or another. I’ve even felt that I’ve had my own conversations with him. It wasn’t like the heaven’s opened up and I heard this majestic and powerful voice (that would probably freak me out) but instead, I’ve seen signs. Let me explain…
Whenever something is truly bothering me, or perhaps I’m confused about a decision I need to make, I don’t always sit with my hands folded and pray for God to help me. My little prayer might be as simple as just saying a quick, “Father please help me.” when I’m in the car or something. But even then, I know He listens because eventually I get my answer. Sometimes it’s through a friend that is dealing with a similar experience and they tell me how they got through the situation. Sometimes it’s through songs that truly move my heart and made me realize what I have to do. Other times its just a feeling I get when looking at something as simple as a beautiful flower or animal from outdoors.
I’ll give you an example of something that happened to me yesterday. So I’ve had a day job or corporate job since I was 16. Now, 24, I have finally decide to quit my job and pursue my career of being a makeup artist for TV and Film. It’s been scary to think about not having a steady paycheck but I put my faith in God that he will provide. I felt that it was the right time because I had already booked a few gigs until the end of the year that were enough to cover all of my bills. I took this as a sign that it was time to trust in myself and take the leap of faith. Then, a couple of days ago, I got notice that one of the movies I was going to be working on wash’t going to happen anymore. It really bummed me out. I got stressed thinking about how I’m going to pay my bills for that month. Then I saw something that immediately popped a scripture into my head.
Let me set the scene of you real quick. I live with my cousin. My room is right next to the kitchen. The sink is next to a window that points out to the front yard. On the outside of that window, my aunt keeps hummingbird feeders. Every morning when I get up and every evening when I get home from work, there are LITERALLY 8-15 hummingbirds there. Its a beautiful sight. Sometimes, I’m so caught up with my life and whats going on that I don’t even notice them. Other times, like the one that brought the scripture to my head, it is one of the most moving, and heartwarming things I have ever seen.
This day in particular, I was all sorts of bad emotions mixed together. I picked up my cup of coffee and just stared at the hummingbirds for a little. All of a sudden, I heard the voice in my head say "Look at the birds of the air, that they do not sow, nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not worth much more than they?" (Matthew 6:26) In that moment, I knew God was speaking to me. He was showing me that I need to stop worrying and trust him. If he provides for these hummingbirds through my cousin, then he will surly find someone or someway to provide for me when I am in need, I just need to have faith.
As the book (referring to God speaking) says, " The question is not to whom do I talk, but who listens?"
Sometimes we just need to be more open to the little things in life. It could just be God trying to tell you something. <3
