It’s time to see “God loves me”

For the last few years, many of the clocks that I use—like the ones on my computer, ipod, kitchen stove, bedside, car, and digital photo album—display the time in a three- or four-number readout. Often when I check the time, I notice what one could call a lucky hand if playing cards—like 11:11 (four aces); 2:22, 4:44 or 5:55 (three of a kind), or 12:34 (a straight).

However, I don’t believe in luck. As someone who knows that God is present moment-by-moment in my life, I decided, a few years ago to interpret those “lucky” series of numbers as little love notes from God. So for the last few years, each time one of my digital clocks displays a good hand, I take it as a little nudge from God—His way of saying, “I see you, Violet, and I love you.”

It’s amazing how often I happen to glance at a clock at the exact moment it displays one of those times. And it’s amazing  too what a difference it makes in my day to be reminded that God sees and loves me.

  1. Amen! What a beautiful thought and habit! We are more than lucky–the luckiest–to have God love us…and to know it! …To borrow from and alter the lyrics of an old “happy” song: “If you’re beloved and you know it, clap your hands…” …Must admit, I don’t always act, feel, or believe as if I were His beloved. I need to be more like you in this faith journey. Thanks for sharing! God bless you! Three cheers for us and for the Lord!

  2. It’s wonderful to see little love notes from God! I have a friend who feels that hot air balloons are little love notes from God to her. Now whenever I see one, I think of her and smile. Now I’ll think of you when the numbers on the clock display lucky hands!

  3. A little nudge from the Lord-what a great thought, Violet. I woke up in the middle of the night thinking about those who need the Lord at this time but might not know that He is there and calls us beloved. Love notes from the Lord would benefit all those in hospitals and enduring sufferings.
