I'm a #ClockWatcher
Sometimes I wonder if it's just me that I see 12:12, 11:11, 10:10 & 7:11 at random #allthetime #clockwatcher
Then today I was looking though my pictures in my photostream & saw all the screenshots I took over the past few months.
See, I try to take a pic when I see them to record & remind me that I actually saw it. I just happen to pick my phone up to check my email or something trivial & there it is A Reminder of the Lord's Promises to me.
I also see them on other clocks too, but don't always have enough time to take a pic b4 it changes.
I believe God can speak to us in so many ways: directly in a clear audible voice, in visions & dreams, & I also believe in prophetic symbols like this. It's one thing for it to happen once or twice but as you can see it happens to me on a weekly basis! It's amazing how the Lord Speaks to us & Loves to remind us of his Promises & Destinies for our lives!
When I see these times I am reminded of the following scriptures:
If you aren't aware, I have been trying to conceive for the past 12 years. We started to pursue fertility treatments, but I didn't have a peace about it. I felt like I was not trusting the Lord with bringing it to pass. And Adoption has always been in my heart, but a series of events family health issues, a roof leak & then my waiting for the hubby finding time to repair took to long which prevented us from going forward with adopting at this time. I kinda gave up and tried not to think about it any more cause it just made me sad and depressed...
It's hard when you are the only one of your married (and not married) friends to not have kids. while they seem to pop them out like rabbits... They then have birthday parties for their kids and then you are the only friend not invited. It's hard when you see the most adorable pictures & videos of their babies & kids on Facebook & Instagram. It's challenging when you go through walmart and hear a mom yell at her kids that they are gonna get it when they get home when all you want to do is love a child of your very own. I try not to think about it too much cause it's really not good for me!
Then in November 2014, I just laid all my dreams of being a parent before the Lord and said God you need to either fix what's preventing me from getting pregnant or take away this desire to conceive and birth a biological child that is an expression of me & my husband's love for each other.
Then I asked the Lord, in a desperate attempt for a sign, "if it's still possible for me to conceive and carry a child I need you to bring my period." I hadn't had my cycle since Feb 2014. Which is pretty normal for women who have been diagnosed with PCOS (poly cystic ovarian syndrome). And I'm in the last few months before the 5th anniversary of my 35th Birthday so I know the biological clock is ticking away!
I seriously thought my faith was smaller than the size of a mustard seed, but I prayed it once and forgot about it. Then TWO DAYS LATER, it appeared in full effect for 8 painful days! ;)
It was a bonafide miracle. I don't think I have ever received and answer to prayer that quickly!!!!!! I now have had a renewed faith for the Lord to open my womb to conceive.
These clock times serve as a reminder to me that God is still there & he is fully able to fulfill his promises to me no matter what.
Thank you Lord for repeatedly moving in ways in my life that are beyond what I even can comprehend. You are so faithful and your Timing is perfect.
