I took you from the ends of the earth, from its farthest corners I called you. I said, “You are my servant”; I have chosen you and have not rejected you. So do not fear, for I am with you; do not be dismayed, for I am your God. I will strengthen you and help you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand. – Isaiah 41: 9-10
I came across this Bible passage while trying to find some quotes to comfort a grieving friend.
Lately in my life, I have been sensing a theme. A theme of who am I, and what is my purpose. This theme seems to be re-occurring through various Facebook pages I follow, as well, it seems, in life itself.
In Isaiah 41, God says, “I have chosen you and have not rejected you.” We are here for a reason. Each person who crosses your path was placed there for a reason. The reason could be trivial, or the reason could have a huge impact on either your life, or theirs.
I believe there are angels sent here from beyond our realm to guide us down our chosen path. We are all closely connected with one another. Have you ever noticed when you think of someone you haven’t spoken to for awhile and suddenly your phone rings and it’s that person.
Another friend of mine recently posted this,
“That a hunch is angel talk, and probably should not be ignored.
Listen to your hunches, pay attention to your intuition, do not dismiss your random thoughts, inspirations or ideas. Heaven talks in snippets, not in speeches. Angels whisper fast. They have to when flying around…
Honor your hints from heaven. They could be giving you the best advice you ever had.” – Neale Donald Walsch
I have had many hunches, and when I choose to listen to them, great things have occurred. Sometimes these hunches can be strong feelings, and sometimes they were faint whisperings, where only those who pause to listen can hear.
Another great story to get your mind pondering existence, is The Egg by Andy Weir. http://www.reddit.com/r/Frisson/comments/1a07cy/short_story_the_egg_by_andy_weir/
As an aside, to my dear friend who posted these last two quotes on her Facebook page, I thank you.
Life is mysterious. Life is grand. Life is wonderful. Know you are not alone in your journey. There are always guides around should you choose to seek them.
