When You Ask for a Sign {Day 25 :: SIGN}


Before we get to writing on the word SIGN, I wanted to share two things with you:

  1. The Advent Book Club starts Nov. 27!
  2. I’m sharing my favorite breakfast at Asheritah’s #write31days Bible + Breakfast challenge. (You’ve probably guessed it already.)

It’s Day 25 of the month-long challenge: less than a week left! Thank you for writing and reading along with us. Here we go…

I tell God I want a sign written for me in the sky. Tell me what’s next, God. Which career path, writing topic, or parenting method will set my world aright?

God’s signs are subtle. A few weeks ago a friend said she knew putting her kids in daycare was the right choice. She had a peace, but still she wondered.

It was a sign for me. I had been afraid to spend several hundred dollars on a writing conference. She shared her story, and (funny as it sounds) I knew without a doubt I should spend the money and go. I told her so.

Then I drug my feet. I didn’t sign up for another two weeks. Five minutes after I finally registered and bought the non-refundable hotel option, a friend offered me her home to stay in during the conference. If I had registered when I felt prompted, I would have had the time to take her up on the offer.

I looked up at God, and he said, “Remember my sign? Remember I will take care of you.”

There’s no regret here. Only a ready reminder to have keen eyes for the next.

This post is Day 25 of 31 Days of Five Minute Free Writes 2016.
