Angel Numbers

Ever since a friend texted me a question my senior year of high school back in the spring of 2012, do you know what 1111 means, I keep seeing it? I’ve known of angel numbers. At the time I read up on it, learning that some believe it’s a sign of guardian angels trying to get in contact with you, watching over you, or you’re experiencing a spiritual awakening. It all sounded so new age and had little relevance because I didn’t see the numeric pattern everywhere.

Two years later another friend, this time it was someone I’d met online brought up the 1111 phenomenon and asked if I saw the numeric pattern? I said no, but afterward I saw it everywhere. I don’t know what it was the second time around that sparked it.

At first, I thought it was my brain picking up on the pattern because it had been made aware and every time I saw 11:11 I found it highly annoying.

As time went by, it wasn’t just 1111 I saw. Sometimes I’d see other angel numbers like 111, 222, 333, 444, 555, and so on.

Whether it was an average day, a great day or a tragedy the numbers would show up not only on clocks, but even when I rang up groceries, in addresses, and other various ways. I’d just glance up and there the numbers would be with no effort of searching for them.

When I got struck by a car on February 6, 2015 the time read 3:33 p.m. when I arrived at the hospital. Where the numbers omens or something benevolent? I’ve researched the phenomenon but no one can quite agree on what it all means.

Recently I haven’t been seeing the patterns, but in the last month I’ve seen a resurgence of the angel numbers. Especially the angel number 3:33.



The Perfect Man



Sunlight flooded the living room gleaming against the black leather binding of the King James Bible on a glass coffee table. The crucifix around the young pastor’s neck glistened against the rays of light. He donned a black suit and red tie. She locked eyes with him and he took her tiny hand into his. His lips drew back into a smile revealing even white rows of teeth. His grasp was strong, yet gentle. Her heart drummed faster. To think of all women he’d chosen her; the man for who she’d waited her entire life. Although she was only eighteen, she knew without a doubt; she loved him.

Many throw the word faith around without understanding it’s true meaning. Seeing isn’t always believing. That’s easy to say, but hard to execute when you hit rock bottom, and all hope seems lost. Many non-believers and skeptics view faith in a creator for the weak. I’ve learned over the years faith is
a gift that not everyone has or will ever possesses. Being able to push forward in near impossible situations is a blessing. If it were not for my faith in YHWH I wouldn’t be here. Faith in him is what keeps me alive. The reason I breathe. Without my faith, I’m nothing, I have no purpose. Life is just a meaningless chain of events.
