I See The Numbers "333" Everywhere copied frm my reply in drm God's Shadow

Thank you so much for your perspective. I am truly humbled. I never really thought of myself as proud, but now I can see areas of pride in my life....much more than I ever dreamed of.
--Not that I was proud of being humble, mind you!
My eyes were opened and I did not like what I saw. Pride even in the way I interpreted Scripture. --Saying "I could be wrong," but not really believing I could be wrong. stuff like that. Almost like self-righteous arrogance. ugly.
But -- direct attention from God Himself. Now THAT is humbling. I can never quite believe that God really loves me (although I know it). And direct attention from HIM, I mean, wow. It doesn't seem real. It's one thing to know something from your head and another with your heart. I know He loves me. I believe it. I see his special attention to me in my prayers and His answers. I even see a special "code" that reminds me of Him all the time (the numbers 333--- I see them so much during the day that it's weird). But why does the disbelief stay with me?
Oh, the numbers 333: I started seeing them constantly 11 years ago. I saw them so much every day, that it really scared me. I wasn't sure if it was the enemies way to distract me... on license plates, on amounts at the check-out stand when I bought something, looking at the clock, etc. It was everywhere. It was so much more than coincidence would ever allow for. I prayed about it and the next day I was at the Christian book store and bought a nice card for someone. The amount was $3.33. and inside the card stood the verse, Jeremiah 33:3.
"Call to me and I will answer you and tell you great and unsearchable things you do not know."
Needless to say, God had my attention. Another time, for just one more example, I was visiting a friend's Bible study. We divided into groups and each drew a scrap of paper out of a box with a verse on it to read aloud. What did I get? YES! Jeremiah 33:3!!! I was shaking. I looked for the BIG meaning behind it...and it never surfaced. I was waiting for something grand to happen in my life on March 3rd, 2003. --Normal day.
It happens SO MUCH that now I just pray (Call out to God) when I see it. I know it's from the Lord, because when I asked Him, He sent me the Bible verse in answer. This has been happening for 11 years. Sometimes I may not notice it for a while, but then it will happen several times a day.
Does this happen to anyone else? I'm sure I'm not the only one, but my friends and family must think I'm a little nutty! Does anyone else have any other take on this? It seems straight forward, but...I could be wrong! really!
Eagerly looking forward to your prayerful reply,
(Thanks so much!)
