When I was in high school, I received a message from God via a friend of my mom’s who, like both of us, was an Evangelical Christian. While praying for me one day she prophesied that as an adult I’d become a world traveller, going to China, India, Africa and other exotic places like that.
At the time, hearing this was a big help to me. It gave me something to look forward to, something to help me get through my worse-than-mundane high school existence. I held on to the dream, and once I went to college, studied Mandarin Chinese–a language I still totally adore. After college, I did go to China, and later to India, and a whole bunch of other cool places, too. Africa is one of the next on my list, and I don’t think it will be too long before I get there.
To this day, I’m not sure if the prophecy that woman gave me was really from God . . . but something in me responded to it deeply, and that made it a powerful motivator and point of focus in my life (and at a time when I needed one badly).

If it came true and comes true then you can safely assume it came from God, least that is my opinion.
I agree. It’s so hard to choose a term for it, though. Neale Donald Walsch talks to God, who is outside of himself, yet learns that he is part of God …
If something comes from God, it comes from ourselves. If we do something, God is the one who does it. No difference 🙂

I agree. Just hard to wrap my head around that sometimes.
