Sneak Peak Inside If Only God Would Give Me a Sign! - EXCERPT #4
The truth is: signs are everywhere. What we really want to know is how to recognize the signs when they show up and how to discern, “Which signs are meant for me?” If you’re paying attention and are willing to trust your inner knowing, intuition will lead you to the sign that’s “got your name on it.” For example, mothers just know which baby is theirs in a hospital nursery filled with newborns.

They could often be found after hours, in one of the empty offices, engaged in animated conversation with each other, discussing the details of some wildly creative new project.

I always thought it would have been a thrilling, heart-pounding story worthy of a mini-series if it had happened like that, if the life-changing sign from God that put me on the miracle-laden path to enlightenment had arrived with all the over-the-top, bolts of lightning ripping through the dark and stormy night sky in a scene from a Gothic novel.

Instead, my messages from God show up when I least expect them, in places I would never think to look, in ways that I couldn't possibly predict. Go figure.
