Last year, I stumbled upon this famous poster. Now, I may live under a rock or something, but I had never seen this before. I've since learned the history behind it, and now I see it everywhere! But at that moment, God spoke to me through this poster.
In my Circeae Tales stories, I refer to God as "The Crown." Just as God is the Trinity for Christians, the Crown is a trinity for the people of the Circeae System. He consists of the Creator King, the Ruler Prince, and the Eternal Companion. Three equal parts, different functions, but all the same. Yes, it's hard to grasp such a concept. Something I just take on faith.
I was at a low point in my writing. Doubts hit me hard, as they often do, and I was ready to give up. Strolling through a retail store, I saw this. I felt like God - the Crown - was personally tell me this exact phrase. "Keep Calm and Carry On." Yes, Sir!
It happens a lot now. I see the name of one of my characters on a sign somewhere, or I'll hear something that somehow relates. I take that as encouragement. I don't believe in coincidence. I believe it's God telling me to keep going. That someone out there needs my stories. I hope and pray that that's the case.
Do you hear from God in interesting ways? Even not-so-interesting ways? I bet you do. Just think about it.
