In 2005, I began to feel a prompting from The Lord to “prepare and return to basics”. At the time, I had no idea what that meant or even how to begin. As time went by, I am ashamed to say, I ignored that prompting, yet the feeling became stronger and stronger.
By November of that year, the feeling was so overwhelming that I could not sleep, waking during the night with thoughts swirling. Being around the Christmas season, I was looking for meaningful (and affordable) gifts for my family. I came across a website that offered “Birth Verses” (http://www.birthverse.com/) based on the date of your birth. “How Neat!”, I thought. Of course, the first verse I looked up was my own… November 14th. This is what it said, “Acts 11:14 (NIV); He will bring you a message through which you and all your household will be saved.”
At that moment, I stopped ignoring that strong feeling to prepare my family. I believe this was The Lord’s way of “waking me up”. I began praying about this feeling, that The Lord would show me what it meant and give me wisdom. Since that time, The Lord has put in my path many, many people that have felt a similar prompting, if not the same one.
