‘Heavenly Signs’ that Megan Would Win!

Have you ever found yourself asking God for ‘signs’ in the midst of uncertainty? While I do ask Him for some form of clear guidance when I’m unsure, asking for signs is not my style. So it was quite odd for me to start getting ‘signs’ of a Megan Young victory. Specially since I could see with my own two eyes the capacity of our girl to win. But let me share anyway…
The first sign were the words, ‘clear path to the crown’. I kept hearing them in my head when I would write about Megan Young in my blog so I used those very same words in two or three posts for her.
The next sign I got was on the eve of the Miss World 2013 pageant. We were at the basement parking of Eastwood Mall and found a parking space right in front of the basement door to the mall. Never have we ever found such a perfect spot in that place where the parking is like a war zone. And yet we had a ‘clear path’ to the door. Those words again.
You might be laughing at this point but believe me, I was laughing too, with my hubby, and we started joking that everything now was going to be a ‘sign’ that Megan will win.
Sure enough, when we got home, I saw another ‘sign’. The Meralco streetlamp at our gate was flickering eerily, ala horror movie. It was the only one flickering on our street. So I feigned fear and told the hubby – Oh no, flickering light, a bad sign for Megan! – then suddenly it shined bright; the flickering stopped. And I said – wait, it stopped! Maybe it means there will be a struggle but Megan’s light will overcome and shine bright!
Oddly enough, that very same day I had received an alarming text from Miss World Philippines Director Cory Quirino that there was a plot to disqualify Megan Young from Miss World 2013. Her text came on the heels of a UK news story about what it claimed were ‘topless’ photos of Megan Young.
Yet in spite of all that struggle (=flickering) Megan was announced winner of the Top Model Challenge Event and placed high in two other key events. Her light shined bright over and above the controversy.
The last ‘sign’ I got came in the form of stormy rain clouds that hovered over Metro Manila as we were driving to the Sash Factor viewing party for Miss World.
I started to laugh really hard telling my hubby – Look! Its storming just like the night she won Miss World Philippines! Its a sign!!! – Then I posted that on my Facebook profile. Although we were making a joke out of it, I was secretly beginning to think that maybe these were indeed real signs from above.
Of course, now that Megan Young has won and I obviously have hindsight, its easy to call them signs from God, right? At this point I really don’t know; it seems much easier to be the doubting Thomas. And yet at the same time I do believe that its not beyond the good Lord to send a sign or two to us folks on earth.
What about you? Did you get any indication that Megan would win? I really wonder what signs you got…
