Our Father's Love:

Story Categories

Please select categories in this section in accordance with the following guidelines.


Stories of God's Involvement in Our Lives...

Blessings & Gifts - True stories of God's gifts & blessings. 

Example: Barren couple provided unexpected opportunity to adopt a child.

Adding your story? See Below for Additional Guidance

Coincidence? - True stories of events that are most likely not coincidences.

Example: Lady thinking about converting unknowingly moves into faithful Catholic neighborhood.

Adding your story? See Below for Additional Guidance

God's Guiding Hand - True stories where God's guidance is clear.

Example: Man opens Bible and instantly gets answer to his urgent question.

Adding your story? See Below for Additional Guidance

It's for the Best - Often painful, these true 'blessing in disguise' stories help us realize that God knows what is best for us.

Example: After losing high-level job, worker finds that he is happier by focusing on what is really important.

Adding your story? See Below for Additional Guidance

"Unanswered Prayers" - True stories of 'unanswered prayers' that we are grateful for. (Of course no prayer goes unanswered, but sometimes we don't get the answer we want at the time, only to realize later that God did us a favor by not granting our request.) 

Example: Lady praying for - and not receiving - better health realizes that her ailments have changed her into a more sensitive, caring person.

Adding your story? See Below for Additional Guidance

Other - Other true stories - small or great - where God's love & kindness are clearly manifest.

Example: Right before signing paperwork, man ready to commence home improvements unexpectedly learns that his contractor is involved in litigation for substandard work.

Additional Guidance in Selecting a Category:

Select the category which most closely applies to your story. Note that there is necessarily some overlap between categories. For example, a proper "unanswered prayer" story would always fit into the "It's for the Best" category, however the "Unanswered Prayer" category should be chosen for "unanswered prayers" since it is more specific.

Please review the provided examples (above) and guidelines (above and below) to determine the best category for your post in accordance with your best judgment. It might also be helpful to view posts already appearing on the site. Also, please note that it is important to choose your category carefully since, posts may be rejected if they are assigned to an improper category (note also that we may - but are not obligated to - change the category of submitted items). Do not choose the category "Other" simply to avoid having to choose a more appropriate category. Additional guidelines:

  • Blessings & Gifts - Likely to involve something tangible, but not absolutely necessary (i.e. a sudden increase in trust, a special opportunity, etc.).

  • Coincidence? - Concerned with whether a specific event (or situation) was accidental or on purpose.

  • God's Guiding Hand - Concerned with specific guidance - for a decision, way of life, etc. - received either internally or externally (i.e. through one of God's servants). May be sought in advance or unexpected.

  • It's for the Best - Should involve something which initially seemed unpleasant, difficult to understand/accept, or painful - but which was ultimately a "blessing in disguise".

  • 'Unanswered Prayers' - Should involve a specific prayer that was not granted in the way asked (in other words, you asked for A or B, and got C, or D, or nothing at all) - and that you eventually realized was better in the way granted than asked.

  • Other - Specific events, situations, etc. which demonstrate God's love & kindness - and are not better suited to above categories. This especially includes unasked for assistance in small (or not-so-small) daily concerns. Do not use this category if your story is more appropriate to another category. Do not use this category simply to avoid having to choose a more appropriate category. If you have difficulty deciding on a category, begin by asking yourself what is the point of your story. 

Note that stories in this section should have a certain "enduring value". For example: While the fact that you woke up this morning, had food to eat, and had a roof over your head certainly demonstrates God's great love, this is not the kind of material appropriate for this section. If, however, you were sick, homeless, and hungry yesterday and then things suddenly changed (i.e. you now have health, food, and shelter), a recounting of these events would be appropriate material for this section. 

Important: this section may be closely related to other sections on this site, including the ones below. Please choose the most appropriate section for your post and do not submit similar posts to more than one section.

Thank you for choosing the appropriate category & section for your post. 

We appreciate your helping make this site an even better place!
