Every day we are blessed countless times. We often overlook the Source of the good things that happen to us and chalk it up to good fortune or “lucky breaks”. Although I have always known that all good things come from God, I have often neglected to give Him the credit. Now, after having experienced a life changing decision, I have become more aware of His personal attention and recognize each and every blessing and their unbelievable timing. I call them hugs from God and began this website in order to share them and have a place where others can share their “hugs”.
After 20 years in a dead-end job I felt that I couldn’t stay there another second, so I decided to leave. While the awesome indescribable relief of simply walking out that door was overwhelming, I worried that I might not be doing what God wanted me to do. I was old enough to retire and had “put in my time”, as it were, but the economy was bad and it was scary to lose the paycheck. I took all of it to God and asked Him to let me know He was standing by me in this decision. I imagined feeling His arms around me and instantly felt calmer. I sensed the warmth of His love and approval flowing into my very being. Then the blessings (hugs) began.
Four months later I found that I had become very frugal and was a much better money manager. When bills came due, God directed situations that supplied whatever was needed, and He provided unexpected help from various sources and persons. Every day now I am aware of and very greatful for the many hugs I receive……………All things work together for the good to those who love God (Romans 8:28)
Please share your experiences with your own Hugs from God for others to appreciate. Thanks, Kat.
