I also believe that God will warn us of things to come. One morning about two years ago I got my husband off to work and decided to lay down on the love seat for a short nap. My son had spent the night and was sleeping on the couch. I have a shelf on the wall over the love seat with a figurine of Jesus on it. I had just dosed off when for no reason other than the Lord wanting to get my attention the figurine came off the shelf and set upright on my side. I felt the need to pray. After praying it came to me that someone was in danger, not of being hurt but of being killed. I started praying and crying at the same time. Scared my son to death. He called my Pastor, who said that he would pray for God to show me who was in danger. By this time I was a mess. My insides were shaking, I was walking the floors, crying, and praying all at the same time. My son was callin everyone we knew. Finally he called my sister, who said that her husband had jacked the car up two hours eariler and was getting ready to craw under it to work on it. I knew then it was him that was in danger and told her to stop him. Then a calm came over me. She told me later that it scared her husband so bad that he wouldn't even go close to the car for two weeks

In a previous post, I shared a story about a canoeing incident that took place on a river... the water swept me down river, but it was then that I heard His voice. However, the story does not end there... 5 days later, I was driving and I was hit by a car that ran a red light... I walked away with minor bruises, although my car was totalled. Again, the Lord was with me along with him army of angels. People who saw what was left of the car,said that I was within an inch of getting serious injury or worse.

Prior to those two situations, (the same week, I might add), I had been a faithful christian, attending church regularly, but I had never faced personal adversity. With those two incidents, my faith was strengthened.

I don't know the meaning of defeat. Adversity may slow me down but it will not stop me!

Pam, you are be an exceptionally strong person to survive that terrible experience. When I read your post, I was terrified and relieved all at the same time. Terrified for all the rides I took as a teenager and thankfully never experiencing what you did, and relieved that you had enough faith and trust in the Lord not to turn your back on Him as so many do in times of peril. People lacking in faith sometimes question how the Lord can let bad things happen to good people. So many people don't understand "freewill" and what role that plays in our daily lives. You are a real life example of how the Lord is there for all us, even in times of great distress.

Blessings to you and your family!

Without God, life makes no sense.

Practice radom acts of kindness, and watch the world around you smile!

A little over two years ago the Lord woke me and told me to pray and I asked who and my phone lit up and had my daughters name on it and I said ok and started to pray for her even though I did not know why or for what because she had moved out because of conflict. She had not talked with us or contacted us after she move out but I was praying for her but that night God knew that someone (my daughter came out of the closet) needed prayer and woke me and told me to pray for her, it turned out that it was her girlfriend that needed prayer. I believe God is working in there lives but right now they just don't know it yet. So please pray for them.

If you tell God no because He won't explain the reason He wants you to do something, you are actually hindering His blessing. But when you say yes to Him, all of heaven opens to pour out His goodness and reward your obedience. What matters more than material blessings are the things He is teaching us in our spirit.

I feel this often. a couple of nights ago I awoke in the middle of the night feeling the great need to pray for my oldest daughter and her children. Everything was okay just felt the need. Just yesterday I had a sudden feeling of love and compasion around me when I was feeling low and I was all alone in my car.

Once I ran out of gas and I had to walk a while, then a man picked me up. He seemed very nice and had his wife with him. After they picked me up, they robbed me and held a knife to my throat while he raped me. I knew God was with me. I knew I was going to be alright whether I lived or died. That is the only way I could get through it without losing my mind. I did feel his presence. Thanks for the topic.

I feel Him all the time. Of course some times are stronger than others. I "talk" to God all day long and last week during one of my chats, I was rushed with on overwhelming wave of warmth and love. It was amazing and I knew exactly Who it was.
