10/27

This my friends is a special post, not only is 10/27 one of my favorite number combinations, but it also happens to be my birthday! I have been meaning to write this post for some time, but since the date was fast approaching I decided to hold off until now.

10/27 has more deep of a meaning to me than just being my birthday. I’m not much of a numbers person, but there is something about that combination that captivates me.

Have you ever looked at a clock and seen the same number pattern repeatedly? Maybe you look up randomly and the clock says 11:11 or 3:33 or 5:55, you get the point. Do you ever find it strange when you see these numbers constantly? Maybe they even start showing up in other parts of your life, like your total at the grocery store, or an address you type into Google. That is was 1027 is for me.

1027 is not as simple of a combination as 3:33 for example, to see on a clock or address. I found it striking that I used to see this number combination frequently. I would randomly look at the clock and it was 10:27, my total at the store would be $10.27, I would be driving down  street and happen to look over at a building and the address was, you guessed it, 1027.

So I decided to do what any normal person would do…Google it! This is where I found my fondness for 1027. The only thing that came up in my search that had any type of content were bible versus. Did you know that there are only 4 bible verses in the entire bible that are 10:27? Of course you didn’t, but I will save you the searching and share them with you. They are in Luke, Mark, John, and Isaiah.

  • Luke 10:27 “You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with al your mind; and your neighbor as yourself.”
  • Mark 10:27 “Looking at them, Jesus said, “With people it is impossible, but not with God; for all things are possible with God.”
  • John 10:27 “My sheep hear my voice, and I know them, and they follow me.”
  • Isaiah 10:27  “And in that day his burden will depart from your shoulder, and his yoke from your neck; and the yoke will be broken because of the fat.”

These messages from God are uplifting, inspiring, and full of wisdom. In my research I also found a little blurb, not bible related, about 1027 meaning, “you are in the right place”. Which bible related or not, is certainly something God would say when you need to hear it.

I find it amusing, because now when I am feeling stressed or wondering if I am doing the right thing, I randomly look up at the clock in that moment and almost every time it is 10:27. It puts a huge smile on my face and reassures me I am where I need to be. And it’s amazing to know that I was created in God’s image, this day, 25 years ago and I continue to grow everyday through his spirit.

🙂 Happy Birthday to me! Now go narcotically research number combinations you see all the time, ha ha!
