A Day Like Exodus 23rd

Hello Friends,

There is a bible journaling group on Facebook called Visions of Scripture. Recently they started a challenge to do an art journal entry for each book of the bible. I already did something for Genesis. I chose chapter 23 of Exodus for the next book and I have a very special reason for doing so.

In 1995 I was walking in a local park where I used to live in Ontario, communing with the Lord. I suddenly felt compelled to take a particular path to an open field. In the field was an elderly man with a dog. I felt very strongly impressed that I should speak to him. Not knowing what to say, I remarked, "It's a beautiful day."

"There hasn't been a day like this since Exodus 23rd," the man replied.

Rather stunned by his reply, I headed back for my car. There I got out my bible and opened to Exodus 23. My eyes fell on verse 20: "See, I have sent my angel ahead to guard you along the way to the place I have prepared."

Some months later I had a dream of a seaside location. The same elderly man I had met in the park was in the dream.

In 2003, after 2-3 years of prompting and guiding by the Holy Spirit, my husband and I moved to Prince Edward Island. A few years after moving here, I came upon the exact seaside location I had seen in my dream.

I don't understand why it was so important that we moved to this beloved Island. We have a limited sphere of influence and are not well known. But I believe that every person has a divine destiny, whether it is to touch one life that will influence another that will influence thousands, only God knows.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Blessing hugs,

Amazing story, but then when God is involved it usually is. Sometimes I think He takes us out of situations where we could have had problems.
