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 BE 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 didn’t 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 may be throwing off symptoms to get your attention.
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.
