A Message from God — On a $1 bill… YES!

The other day, I was heading out the door to walk. I picked up cell phone, keys and “last minute” decided I should bring a few dollars, just in case. The just in case scenario was for the “end of the walk.”

Inevitably, it always happens. I’m at the end of my walk, tired with NO $$ to stop at grocery store or get a coffee. Better yet, get a $2 Lottery Ticket, never know when LUCK might strike, right. I have Apple Wallet, but have not found a grocery store that accepts it.

As I took a few dollar bills, I SAW this one with a Psalm on it. I’m Catholic, the guilt set in, this is a spiritual message, I was meant to see it — STOP — look up the Psalm. If I merely put the $1 in my pocket without looking up the Psalm, my entire walk would be ruined. Why, because in the back of my mind, I’d be thinking what could the Psalm be about, why was I meant to see it?

As you can see, a powerful Psalm indeed!

Imagine me on my walk. I was thinking/wondering — WHO wrote that Psalm, WHY did they choose that one, and WHY did they write it on the dollar bill? So many scenarios.

The Psalm brought back painful memories of when I was laid off two different jobs within seven years. YES, I went through tough times. I did stop by church, I never begged God; however, I did ask, “WHY” and “WHAT was my direction?” In early 50s, it was hard to find a job. NOW, employers are begging for employees. What a difference a few years makes, COVID changed everything.

So, I share this with you.

If you received this Psalm, what would you immediately think?

  1. I would have to check it out first, then I’d put it away for safe keeping so I wouldn’t spend it. I hope you didn’t spend it! ? It’s clearly a message from God or the universe, take your pick.

    I’ve only had 4 jobs in my 40 year career, and lost 3 of them due to either amalgamations (my hospital job) or my company being bought out by another company (twice). I started to think I was jinxed. While I didn’t care the first time (early 20’s, jobs were plentiful, I switched to hospital), I was devastated the second time (I loved my hospital job) and the third time I just took the package with glee and ran right into retirement, (although I did freelance a bit after it wasn’t for me). The HR lady was expecting tears, but not me. I hated that job and you’re giving me money to leave – hallelujah! God was speaking to me, and I listened. When one door closes another opens.

    I can see why so many places are looking for employees. After treating their employees so poorly for years, the pandemic made people realize there was more to life than work and they could live on less, so many have not returned to work, or only want to work part time.

    1. Joni, Interesting life story. Our lives are always full of twists and turns. Yes, you are spot on regarding workers/COVID. Oh, and I kept the $1. When it’s time, I will bring it to church, donate it and light a candle. I’ll be thinking of you when I do. 🙂

  2. To be written OVER the inverted pyramid… which is recognized as a chalice, a symbol of feminine.

    Interesting also to be (again) above the all seeing eye.

    I’m not at all religious, I’m also not a sybologist, but it’s fascinating to say the least.

  3. Wonderful story, Monica. I’d look up the Psalm same as you, then realize I was meant to pass it on just like the person who added it to the bill in the first place. Maybe you find someone who can use the message of the Psalm even more than you and say, “Here, I hope this helps”.

  4. I would definitely stop and read. The finding of the note with scripture would be a sign to me that I am being watched over and cared for. I would take it as a message from my guardian angels.
    The message would be confirming that I am in the right direction of confiding in God what is troubling me and having faith in his ultimate wisdom.

    1. Yes, you are right! Like when we fret over something and find a LUCKY penny. Somehow, we smile and know – TRUST IN GOD! Hey – I don’t think you showed us the mosaic you worked on that you said the people at the studio didn’t like? I’m watching for it.
