Do you Ever Wonder?

I am not a night person. This also applies to new years eve. Most of the time, I greet the new year with a cup of coffee. Today I am reflecting on how God helped me 11 years ago on new years eve 1999.

I was invited to dinner to celebrate the new year. The family was from Cuba. It seems that it is not uncommon for Cuban to start dinner at 10pm.  I would be driving home after midnight.

A couple of days before the dinner, I had a dream. In the dream, I was in a very serious car accident.

I wondered if the dream was a warning for me not to go out that night. I took it to prayer. I asked the Lord what to do? I opened up the bible at random. My eyes fell on a verse from the prophet Isaiah, “Go to your room and lock the door until the disaster passes.”

I took this as confirmation. I was not to go out that night. I decided to greet 2000 with prayer  in church. Jan 1 2000 arrived. I greeted her with a cup of coffee.

I was meant to be in that car accident 11 years ago. I was in my car today and I felt a prompting of the Holy Spirit to write this message tonight.

Maybe this message is for You.

What is the Holy Spirit saying to you?

  1. I’m glad you stayed home New Years 2000 and avoided the accident.
    When I was in Michigan, I prayed with my hands on Fr. Solanus Casey’s’ tomb. It was really neat.
