On November 13th 2010, as a pedestrian, I was hit by a car in the city of Santa Monica. I was left disabled in that horrific accident, which nearly claimed my life. You Know What? I could have avoided it.
There are several reasons why I didn’t listen to that voice. Among others, I admit pride, blindness, stubbornness, lack of love, vanity, selfishness, lack of humility just to name a few.
At that time, I was seeking meaning, purpose, joy, and fulfillment through personal success and achievement. It was about me first. I was neglecting love from God and the closest people in my life.
Despite all of that, the Lord didn’t give up on me. He spared my life.
8 years later, I am standing with more love for others and the right gratitude. Jesus, I am grateful to you and my best friend (who prefers to remain anonymous), her family and my family members who have always been by side.
This morning, while meditating, the following passage came twice in two different readings :
It became clear to me that Lord was reminding me and asking me to tell others. Because, I gained a second chance in life, but some people don’t get that.
Whether you believe or not in God, we all have a little voice within ourselves. This voice goes by different names: inner voice, inner guide, inner feeling, gut feeling, spiritual guide, inner wisdom, or whatever you choose. I call it the Voice of God.
That voice provides us guidance, protection and has the ability to sense things before they hit us.
But to begin to hear it, it’s essential to calm ourselves, slow down, make room for silence and humble ourselves.
Next time you hear this little voice (don’t trust the one that inspires fear), harden not your heart. That voice has also the power to lead us to peace, joy, love, happiness and our life’s purpose.
What is your experience with this little voice? How often have you ignored it? And what happened?
