    A Huge Sign From God Today Just When I Needed One!

    I’ll make this short – I have a simple, yet powerful message I need to get across.

    I’ve been having difficulty with a teacher in particular at school, due to a few circumstances. Anyway, I’ve talked to the teacher countless times; she wouldn’t let up on her decision, leading to confrontation between us. It got to the point that I was dreading going to this class. I felt really uncomfortable sitting through the period over the past three weeks and was really close to dropping it.

    Before the class started, I was really nervous and praying to God for her to hear my story and to let me have another chance to turn in a missed assignment because of my illness at the time. My inner voice told me that I needed to carefully see how my jeans should be washed. So I looked closely…really closely…at the tag.

    Look. Look closely.

    Right there…at the bottom. It says “God Loves You.” I couldn’t believe it! These are just random jeans I got from a normal boutique in LA, not a special “Christian” one or anything. (I’m not sure someone out there even makes spiritual jeans, but that would be pretty cool. 😉

    I felt an overwhelming sense of his presence in that exact moment. I felt his love and his strength for me to go into that class with my head held high. I knew in my heart that it will work out.

    “God whispers to us in our pleasures, speaks to us in our conscience, but shouts in our pains: It is His megaphone to rouse a deaf world” – CS Lewis

    So I went confidently into my class at 6pm. Sure enough, when it was over at 9pm, my teacher drew me aside. We worked out an agreement that satisfied us both so I could stay in the class.

    Anyway, this is the first of many pictures and signs I will start to show of the existence of God, but that he truly is there for us when we pray, and give us hope.

      • Yes! About a week ago, I prayed for something, anything, that would remind me that God is on my side and He would take care of me. I was anxious because I was saving up my money for really nice boots, and I was worried I wouldn’t save up in time for the school year. So on Sunday, I put one of those rare bicentennial quarters in the offering plate, knowing I had another one at home somewhere. The next day, I bought a smoothie and got a few coins of change. The weird part is: I got TWO bicentennial quarters in the same transaction! I felt like God was telling me that he would provide in double whatever I lost. So I went to buy my boots, and there was a buy one get two free sale, entire store, which, by the way, NEVER happens. Ever. So I paid for one pair and got three, one of which I gave to my sister. I gave one and got back in double!

    1. Thank you so much for going along with my idea from a while back- writing stories about signs God has given you! These stories build up my faith! They are so amazing! I’ve had many, many signs from Him too! I LOVE feeling His Love! It’s SO amazing!! <3

    2. i have been doubting Gods existence, lately especially, almost to the point where i fully turned my back on Him and thought to never think of Him being there again. seeing this article honestly woke me up and somewhat shook that doubt out of me. sometimes i question that doubt i have within me and think it must be the devil, but other times i believe it. i pray i can walk in confidence, as you did. and know that God is with me. He is there to never leave. He will protect me. thankyou for sharing this Nicole

      • i have no clue why, but i’ve been doubting Gods presence as well latley and im not even in a dry spot or rough time but signs like this strengthens me so much, rainbows are my favorite sign, simple but grounding, god bless you all!

    3. Oh my gosh! 🙂 God is so good. I love how He orchestrates everything to work absolutely perfectly. Who knows…maybe some lonely factory worker decided to put that in that one specific pair of jeans, not really knowing why at the time? That’s so epic.

    4. when i was little, we lived in an apartment and didn’t have a lot of money. one day my mom was short on bills $200. she told god that she was going to put it in his hands, and the next day she was mailed $200 with no return address!

    5. Wow thats wonderful ! ! that reminds me of something similar that happened to me 🙂 their was one morning where i was feel kind of down while on my way to school …. and my mom like usual was going to give me some money for snacks (at my school they have like a snack shack which is what really helps me make it too lunch) So, instead, she asked me to reach into her wallet and and grab a 20$ (at the time she didnt have anything smaller) so i reached for a random bill and usually i would just stuff my money in my pocket and, get ready to jump out of the car but for some reason something stopped me and made me have the urge to look at the bill …. at the top of the bill was written “God is Life” and that just turned my whole day around 🙂
