Make it obvious!

My dear friend Kat shared something with me over the past year that was life-changing!  She said that when she would pray, she would ask God to make whatever it was obvious to her, so she would know it was from Him.  Hmmm, I thought that was an interesting concept since I can be one of the most stubborn people I know.  So I tried it!

I remember the day so vividly, June 14, 2013, ironically Flag Day!   I woke up suddenly at 4:30 in the morning, with a strong conviction to pray and to ask God to make His Will obvious to me.  It was a week before my book was going to be released and I had just sent a few emails to some friends and family sharing the exciting news.

Well, at 9:00 that morning, an old friend called and was so excited about my book and she pre-ordered 20 copies!  I looked up and said, “Thank You, Lord, that was obvious!”   I thought, WOW…this is pretty cool.  Then, two hours later, I had a call scheduled with work to refine details of my current position and title.   Well, the flavor of the call changed, and lo and behold, that day, was my last day!   My WOW turned into a POW!  I looked up once again and said, “Well, Lord, that’s really obvious!”

Sometimes disappointments in life are disguised as re-appointments for something greater.  We think we know the answers and we make our plans and God laughs.  Today, I am reminded to again ask God to make it obvious!  Show me the path YOU want me to take for Your Glory, to be salt and light for this world. 

Think on Purpose:   When we allow the eyes of our hearts to see the invisible,  God can do the impossible!

Story Behind the Book

In 2004, I felt a stirring in my heart. I was driving home and as clear as it could be, I heard a still, small voice say to me “You are to launch a project and it will be called “Your A.M. Wake Up Call!” I was literally chilled and in a state of awesome wonder! I asked myself, ‘What could...see more


"This book is a very heart-warming and inspirational daily reminder of God's manifestation in each of us. Angela Jo creatively combined her passion for writing and photography while allowing God's light and love to work in and through her. Your "I Am" Wake Up Call is not only a wonderful book but a movement towards connecting to the Divine Spirit within ourselves and others."
