It was a windy, cold day walking to the library with my daughter and granddaughter. Not far from their house, I spotted two bills folded in half just lying in the grass along the side of the road. When I picked them up, I was very excited to see that one was a $1 bill and the other a $100 bill! On the way home I found another $1 bill! “Wow”, I thought, “this feels like I’ve had a touch from heaven!”
A touch from heaven happens when you receive something you have wanted and you don’t put parameters around how or when it has to happen. Several times that week I had asked Ed, “Have you gotten money out of the bank yet?” The answer was always “Nope.” The truth is I could have gone to the bank but I didn’t. It dawned on me later that the bank came to me! Hahaha, that’s the way I’m going to look at it! A touch from heaven can happen anywhere.
Here’s a different example. Several years ago a close relative, “Julie”, stopped talking to me which was extremely upsetting to me. I’ve learned that whenever we get real upset, one action can trigger a strong emotional response but there’s always more anger behind it from previous events. It may look like it’s about one topic but it rarely is. I knew if I was going to have peace in my heart that I had a lot of forgiveness to do and I didn’t want my anger festering causing illness in my body. Little by little I started forgiving “Julie” and forgiving myself which eventually brought me to a place of peace. I had no idea how it was all going to turn out but I decided that every time I thought of “Julie”, I would send her love. Recently while at my sister’s birthday party, she walked in the door and without hesitation gave me a hug! That truly felt like a touch from heaven!
You see, a touch from heaven can be receiving anything that you have asked for whether it’s money or a hug. Or it can be something unexpected. Heaven hears your prayers and requests and sends you signs that you were not only heard but that you are worthy of receiving anything you ask for. I have found that the key to receiving is that after asking stop worrying about how or when it happens. It could be tomorrow or it could take years. It could be in the form of money found on the ground or a hug from someone you love. Just believe and trust that whatever you’ve asked for is on its way. By doing that it can help take the pressure off of asking when and how it’s going to happen, which reduces your stress. Know that your prayers and requests are always answered, and held for you to receive them at just the right time. Release your ideas of how or when something has to happen and you too will receive a touch from heaven.
I would love to hear your stories of when you have had a touch from heaven.
