I am a believer of signs and affirmations as they help me to stay strong and motivated. So, yesterday I was cleaning my kitchen after having an emotional breakdown because there’s always something that is going to come along and try to break you, you know like LIFE, when I stumbled across two fortune cookies. Now in that moment, I’m cleaning to relieve some of the stress I was feeling, so I wasn’t really as present as I should have been, but I immediately stopped myself from throwing them away and decided to just open the wrapper. That’s when I discovered the first fortune cookie paper that read, “You are admired as a leader in your community”, I seemed to feel a sense of relief and reassurance that I needed in that moment because writing my first book has been a journey that sometimes I’m unsure about.
At any rate, once I read those words, I instantly teared up and smiled, saying, “God, you know I needed a word and confirmation of my purpose ”. Then I moved to open the next fortune cookie, which read, “Your talents will be recognized and suitably rewarded”. I could do nothing but cry out of joy because these fortune cookie messages came right on time, especially in a moment where I felt lost, alone, confused, unworthy and just a host of negative feelings that I didnt want to feel. However, these messages were just the confirmation I needed to go harder and believe in myself, my talents and most of all my worth, which sometimes the struggle seems to blind you of.
My recommendation to any one reading this post to understand the power of God’s messages as they may not appear in the form you think, but they will appear. If you don’t believe in God, well tap into whatever spiritual being you do believe in to receive the message you need to keep pushing forward because someone needs you and all that you bring to this world to make it continue going around....
Have you ever had a message that came right on time, when you needed a word? What do you do when you see these messages and do you believe in signs or messages?
