It Wasn't Luck

Walks around my grandparents' farm are one of my most favorite things to do.  It is a place where I can go and quiet my heart and my thoughts. Yesterday morning I went out and walked, sat, cried, and poured my heart out to God.  I asked Him for a sign.  Something.  Anything.

I got nothing.

But then I reminded myself how all of a nature is His sign.  His creation, His design, His beauty, His love, His sense of humor.  So I sat and drank it in and asked not to miss the language He speaks through nature.

This morning, I went out and started my walk by picking some pretty yellow flowers.  I made my way through the farm, sat, cried, and poured my heart out to God again.  On my walk home, I walked through a field of clover.  I looked down and thought how there must be a four leaf clover in this field some place.

"God, it would be so cool to find a four leaf clover.  Just to know that you hear me."

I heard in my head to keep looking.  So I did.

Then I heard another voice.  A familiar voice.  A voice of doubt, of accusation, of disbelief.

"You are not going to find a four leaf clover.  God doesn't care about you", the voice said.

I responded. "Shut up, Satan!  I don't need to find a four leaf clover to know that God cares about me.  So you can bite me!" (Yeah, I actually said, 'so you can bite me'.  I know that's not exactly appropriate language, but then when you're dealing with the voice of an enemy, I don't think you have to be appropriate.)

I took one step further, looked down, and saw a four leaf clover.  No lie!  True story!

Now, this all take place over a span of about 45 seconds.  I wasn't looking on and on trying to find this four leaf clover.

You may believe what you want.  You may believe it was just a coincidence.  You may believe I'm crazy that I had these thoughts in my head.  You may think they were just my thoughts and not actually the voice of God and the whispers of Satan.

But I know in my heart that this was God speaking to me.  Reminding me that He hears, He cares, He answers, and He loves me.
