You Never Know!

As many know Kevin works the second shift (1:00 - 10:00 pm) as a plumber for the Chandler School District. So one day last week before Kevin went to work we had gone for a family outing to the movies and some other stuff. We got home just in time for Kevin to change his clothes and grab a lunch. We had a great time before spending time as a family, but the minute we walked in the door and Kevin went to change his clothes I started to get this really bad feeling like he shouldn't go to work that night. I have had feeling before like the still small voice giving a warning, but I never had one this strong before it was like that still small voice was shouting at me and I physically felt sick like I was going to throw up.

After we had family prayer before Kevin was about to leave I told him I have a really bad feeling and he said he did too but it was probably cause he was running late and just feeling anxious. He said we prayed for safety I'll be fine, NO! I told him we need to go to our bedroom and pray again as to why we both feel him a little anxious and me about warp my arms around his leg to keep from walking out the door.

We went back into our bedroom and said a pray and asked the Lord to help us know if these feeling were something we needed to listen to. After we finished our prayer Kevin decided to call in sick and I'm telling you the minute he got on the phone to report his absence I had a total clam peace full feeling come over me.

Now i have had plenty of experiences where I've listened to the promptings of the spirit and never knew what happened or found out things that might have happened. So a week went by and we heard of nothing out of the ordinary until last night Kevin came home from work and told me that last Saturday night there was a man that broke into one of the schools Kevin works at carrying an assault riffle running from the police. Still we don't know what might have happened but I feel blessed to have the gift of the Holy Ghost who gives us those warnings and promptings and I'm grateful for my husband who has never doubted me when I have had those feelings. We never know what may or may not happen but I know as long as we are prayerful and listen he will never steer you in the wrong direction.

what an amazing experience. I bet that you are so glad that you both listened to that prompting and you will never have to know what could have happened to your sweet husband while he was at work that night. Probably because of the promptings you had, it wouldn't have been something good that could have happened. This will be a great testimony builder for your whole family!
