Sometimes God has a way of whispering His winks...like a little nudge, and other times He has a way of making it very obvious that He wants us to pay attention. Because you did, you saved a little bird's life. Thank you for sharing!
My name is Linda from Woodstock, NY. Last week while cleaning, I felt a strong urge to throw out my compost. I tried to resist, debating with this inner voice that I planned on composting after dinner but the nagging wouldn't go away. I gave in but only took out some flowers.
When I arrived at the compost, I tossed the flowers and then spotted what looked like an injured bird in the compost. Had I taken out the entire compost, I would have buried him under the gunk. I walked over to see how I could help and realized he was caught in the deer fence (that the owner installed). I lifted the fence and out flew the little one, apparently unharmed. What a Joy!
I was joyful for the nagging that wouldn't go away until I acted on it. I was grateful that I listened. And I was thrilled to have been nudged to help spare a little Life. Perhaps, I will listen a bit sooner each time a nudge comes my way.
Since reading my first God Winks book, I've had many winks in my life, but none more important than the first wink! I was living in Richmond Va, at the time working nights in a small aviation hangar. My health began to deteriorate. I put on lots of weight, I couldn't sleep and I had skin rashes and dark circles under my eyes. I spent all kinds of money going to the doctors office. To no avail the doctors would just give me pills and the symptoms would go away for a few days then come right back. I honestly lost hope on figuring out what as wrong with me. My quality of life was bad. I remember driving to the doctors office talking to God out loud. I asked for a sign..... be-careful what you ask for! In front of me appeared a car with a license plate that said IAMOK! I looked at it then read it out loud. Then I realized I had just been given my first wink. The doctors never did help me, but I helped my self. I was poisoning my body with Mountain Dew and Mountain Dew Amps. I drank so much of it the good bacteria in my gut lining died. It took me over a year to nurse myself back to 100% health. I had to eat right and eat clean and work out hard. It was a long miserable experience, but having a license plate that said IAMOK after asking for a sign changed my perspective on the man upstairs. I talk to God out loud all the time in my truck. I've had many God winks since then and I say thanks to SQuire for helping me learn how to talk to God!
I have had many healings to my body seen angels talk to by them. would like to talk to deepper christain who believe deeply in christ jesus only.For He is the one true Lord the Head of my life.

Godwinks,wow what a creative figure of speech,to describe what I call my miracles.There have many recently in my life and I am in awe of them.I have started to think about all the ones I have missed that I was too blind to see.Praying about financial matters and then having a tax return come in with an extra 3 hundred dollars(Godwink).Praying for things to get better with my very difficult ADHD son,and then having my eyes opened as to the way to handle things with him that so simply makes it better and more beneficial for both of us(Godwink).Praying on desperation as a single mom who broke my ankle in January of this year,was medivaced to have surgery to repair it, was told you can bear weight as tolerated and then at about two months into healing I started experiencing a great deal of swelling and pain,Dr.s telling me constantly that I shouldn't still be in pain,I finally get it x-rayed to find out that the repair is falling apart,so I go back and have another surgery, and I am told I will be in a cast and that there will be no bearing weight for 3 months so therefor I must stay in a longterm care wing of my local hospital, but with all this a wonderful couple I know(they are soldiers with the salvation Army where I attend church) who we have become great frienda with steps forward and volunteers to take my son for this time,amazed at this almost unbelieveable offer I am now relieveed that I can have this surgery and the time to heal(this was definately a Godwink)I have had some awesome Godwinks, and hope all of you out there will have many and have your eyes open to see them for what they are.Cat Wrangell,Alaska
Godwinks happen to me a lot, perhaps because my faith needs lots of propping up lately. Most recently I went to Ohio to take my mom to Mass. It was a last minute decision, but the Mass was being offered for my dad who passed away a few years ago, and events unexpectedly fell together so that I could go. While there an old friend spotted me (long lost childhood friend). He said, "I knew I was going to see you soon because last night on TV someone was reading that poem you recited in sixth grade! It always makes me think of you." We decided to meet up again later and enjoyed reminiscing. We both agree that the connection we had as kids was still in place (no one could ever beat us playing password) and that we have been brought together for a (yet unknown) reason....
"When God Winks at You -
Every so-called coincidence or answered prayer is God’s way of letting you know He's thinking of you."
This line says it all - what a wonderful article - reminds us all that the Good Lord IS in our hearts, and sits on our shoulder... thank you... MikeyB
