Three years ago, I lost my job. I didn't know how I was going to make it being that I was a single woman. I'd been doing things "my way" for the longest. I now know that when God instructs you to carry out his will for your life ,there are consequences when you don't adhere. Although I was going through a tough time, my faith never wavered. I continued to spend quality time with God, attend worship service on Sunday ( even when I didn't have a tithe) and help as many people as I could. During this time, I began to hear what God was saying to me much clearer than I'd ever heard him. It was as if I was literally conversing with another human being. Each day he would whisper words of encouragement to me. I in turn would write it down, put it in text form and forwarded it to family and friends to encourage them.
