Life Leaves Clues

Buky —  30 January, 2013 — 8 Comments

As we approach the end of another month. Kindly pay attention to the clues life is giving you as you go about your journey.

It’s easy to get caught up in the busyness of life juggling the demands of our daily grind.

Every day, life leaves clues. If you pay attention, you’ll see and hear small miracles happen, and then use them to become better – Bryan Thayer

You will make some mistakes, and as you take inventory of the lessons learned along the way. It will help you to navigate better and forge ahead arriving at your destination in good time.

A true account of how I missed many clues

Faith had 2 weeks off for Christmas break and I was ready for her to resume school. I woke up excited and eager to get Faith to school on  Monday 7th Jan.  There I was driving to school, thinking to myself  (Clue #1) how there were very few cars on the road. Hmm, (Clue#2) I thought what ever happen to all the school-run moms? Anyways we are going to be there on time, thank God for less traffic and I cant wait to have my me time!

I noticed there were (clue#3) no children along the way usually waiting for the school bus to pick them up!

As I approached the school car park there were very few cars (clue#4). How weird i thought to myself.

Still, I continued on my merry way and pulled up outside the school where there are usually older students helping to open the doors. Today, there were no helpers (clue#5). Hmm I thought to myself again. Oh well maybe they are just getting organized again after their 2 weeks break.

Suddenly, there it was in black and white a big sign  SCHOOL IS CLOSED TODAY AND WILL OPEN TOMORROW! 

A woman walked towards my car and informed me that they weren’t open until the next day. It took a few seconds for it to register and afterwards I drove off in embarrassment.

How did I get the date mixed up? And How come I didn’t pick on the clues as I drove down?

As I drove back home I kept thinking on all the clues I’d missed. I asked myself “how many more clues am I missing in my life”?

I was operating thru a tunnel vision and only saw what I wanted to see. Even though there were many clues along the way, I didnt take the time to acknowledge them.

What about you? Are you so focused on your destination that you are missing out on important information, clues and signs that may help you make an informed decision?

Dont become too fixated on the destination while losing sight of the clues God is showing to you  so that you can step into your audacious life.

Your seasons may have changed, that person you intended to marry may not be whom they are pretending to be. Your body maybe throwing off symptoms to pay attention to your health.

You may have outgrown your current circle of influence and God has been sending you signs but you are emotionally attached to those that are no longer invested in your dreams.

Wake up, be attentive and stop living in denial. Start paying attention to your surrounding, the clues are right in front of you

5 Things you can do to help you see God’s clues

  • Pray daily  for wisdom, understand and knowledge
  • Read the bible – God speaks thru His word.
  • Be open-minded – see things from a different perspective
  • Live in the present – focus on here and now
  • Slow down – Life is a journey to be enjoyed, not a race.

 

God is constantly trying to get our attention, giving us help for our journey and to continue to ignore these clues may lead to a tragic outcome.

“Surely the Lord God does nothing, unless He reveals His secret to His servants the prophets.” – Amos 3:7

What is right there in front of you that you are not seeing?

Prayer.

Lord, help us to see the things that you see, to hear the words that you are speaking to us today.

Holy Spirit help us in our discernment, help us as to make good life decisions.

Remove the veil from our hearts and eyes so that we can listen and obey your instructions

  1. AMEN!!! I love love love love this! Amen to your prayers. I am sorry you had that experience, but thankful for what God brought from it. Thank you for the reminder that “God is constantly trying to get our attention, giving us help for our journey and to continue to ignore these clues may lead to a tragic outcome.” – May this never be our portion in Jesus’ name, Amen! Thank you sis for sharing! God bless you loads!

    • Bomi, We laugh about that now. But I will never forget the nuggets of gold God taught me. Now I’m more present in my life and I see the world thru His eyes!

    WoW! – let me park up right here, Buky. My goodness, what a powerful and timely statement. You stopped me in my tracks here.

    There were times in my life (not too many – thank God) when the Lord had clearly given me clues, but because I had been focusing on how I thought the Lord ‘should’ answer or had been focusing on Him answering in the same way He had previously done, I had missed His perfect timing/answer, when it was right there for me to see.

    I give God all the glory, that as I have gone deeper in His Word, I am growing higher in Him and seeing things from His perspective and with more discernment.
    It is not always easy, but I continually press in.

    Thanks for this powerful post – May God bless you and your family more and more. I too like Bomi am delighted that you received something from your experience.

    • God use our life to counsels us, that really get my attention. Everything we’ve gone thru is for a purpose, both good and the not so good. I no longer see events in my life as negatives but as an opportunity for growth. God desires that we’ll be spiritually mature so that we can take our rightful place in His Kingdom. Ps 73:24 – You guide me with your counsel, leading me to a glorious destiny.

  3. I thank God that I can finally write a comment. I love this, God is always leaving clues, it is just most times,we pointedly ignore it. Thanks sis for reminding us
