Signs are Everywhere!

I'm a firm believer that God gives us signs all the time. However, signs are not always given to us when we ask for them.

Signs should not steer faith:

Signs should only confirm our faith and should not be the other way around, in the kingdom of God that would be like the tail wagging the dog. Nuh uh not gonna work.

My point is, lately I have received such beautiful signs. And all have come when I don't ask for them. I just reflect on what has happened throughout the day and realise yes, God is telling me everything will be alright.

Today, I spent the day with Handsome. We relaxed by the pool side and chatted about all sorts of things. I haven't really gotten time to spend time with him in the form of utter relaxation. It eazed our minds fully and felt great.

I wish I had taken pictures of us because we don't have any recent pictures lately. I didn't have my camera or camera phone at hand. I was too busy just enjoying his company.

I received such a beautiful sign from God today :) it felt so assuring. In the back of my head all day today I constantly felt that I wanted God to pat me on the back and say, "Jess, you did good kid. Keep it up". Tick tocking away, I wasn't sure if I really felt God's gesture. As I reflected back on my day, something dawned on me, actually about 10minutes ago. A light bulb went off! SO I wasn't crazy, I DID feel tap taping on my back! ;)

This is why...

I was saying goodbye to Handsome and his phone rang, he was on the phone with his soccer buddies so my goodbye kiss had to wait for a bit... As we were sitting in the car, Handsome picked up one of my CD's from Ciara and discretely searched through the song titles as he talked away on the phone. I didn't think anything of it, just thought he was a little bored talking away. But he left the CD cover opened up on my lap with no meaningful intention. I looked down and focused on one word. Evolution. I continued to read it. (Keep in mind I haven't looked through the CD cover once since I had it).

It read:

Aleluyah! I finally felt like God was smiling down on me:) He noticed the change! Phew because, I notice the change, and Handsome noticed the change.. So my trio is completed.

Signs are absolutely everywhere. They don't have to be right in your face saying, "hey, hey look at me! I'm right here!!" They can be anything, big or small signs, but the most important thing to notice is that no matter the size of the sign it's still always the same outcome. God is present and listening. Just have Faith.

Inspirational quote:
"People see God everywhere. They just don't recognize Him"


  1. That's so weird how all you had to do is randomly look at a CD cover while being with "handsome" lol and all the right words/sayings you were reading had everything to do with your situation or bump in the road with him. Very sweet blog Jessy :) I'm glad everything is back to normal if not better!

  2. Thanks Vanessa:) I know signs are absolutely everywhere we just need to be open minded for them. But this one was just right :D
