a string of sudden turns in my employment status, I found
myself questioning the career path I'd begun. Out of nowhere,
on 2-01-01, on my way to work, a question rolled through me
as I sat in my car waiting for a traffic light to turn green:
"Do I serve the corporate world or God?"
this out loud. And, of course, I saw no lightning bolt spear
the tarmac nearby, heard no sound come through the radio or
my car's open windows-not a peep-no commanding voice stating
God's wise counsel in that moment. I'd begun to believe in
synchronicity and knew, without a doubt, that I was working
in an office that was stretching my patience and compassion
to the limit. I truly did not believe that I would receive
an answer to that compelling question right away.
as the light turned green and I coaxed my car forward, I felt
compelled to look to my left, at the car moving up alongside
me. I glanced at its license plate as it passed me in the
left lane…and There It Was… SERVIAM,* on that car's license
plate, in bold black letters.
I got goosebumps-there in the car-and wanted to pull off the
street. Instead, I was pushed into traffic while the knowledge
of that "instant hit" settled into my gut. And, believe me,
I remained dumbfounded for days over this incident. But I
wished that it was a confirmation that God had my back. Forever.
those who are unfamiliar with the reference, in the Bible
God refers to Himself as "I AM."]
