When God Wants Us to Pay Attention

Yesterday after my citizenship class, I hung out at the coffee shop. I know that surprises you. Hanging out at a coffee shop is part of my normal routine. God will at times try to get our attention even in the normal routines in our lives. When he does it once, it gets our attention. When the scenario repeats, it as if he wants us to pay attention to something.

I shared in my post- June Is Here-Now What?– about my idea to make short films out of my short stories. The next day I joked with a student in the coffee shop that homework is fun. That led to me finding out she is a film major at the university in my city. The idea of making short films our of some short stories I wrote in my other blog- encounterswiththeancients.com keeps coming to mind. The young woman liked one of my stories and wrote down some suggestions.

Yesterday when I was in the coffee shop, I saw a different young person studying. I joked with her that homework is a lot of fun. That led to me finding out she is also a film major at the university in my city. I shared with her about my idea of making short films. She read two of my stories and liked them,

She had some helpful ideas and seemed interested in helping make the short films along with a few of her friends. We sat and talked for about an hour. We talked about possible locations for filming, how to edit them etc.

Similar scenario with two different people. I believe God wants me to pay attention.

Thank you for reading, God Bless.

  1. Sounds like a possibility. One way to know – step out and try. And even failure isn’t really failure. There’s always a take away to learn. The only real failure is when we don’t try. Who knows what God has in store. Hope it works out well for you.

  2. I agree that God was getting your attention. When I was taking a class in biblical dream interpretation, we learned about the significance of numbers. Our teacher, a Christian counselor, said two was the number of revelation. (Example: in Genesis God revealed Joseph’s future through two dreams, different dreams but with the same meaning. Then later Pharaoh had two similar dreams with one meaning, predicting the future years of plenty and famine.) God said it twice, you’d better go for it. πŸ˜πŸ˜‰
