Open Minded to the Unusual
Panic set in.
My husband couldn't find his wallet and he needed to leave for work five minutes ago.
I gave him my debit card to buy gas and sent him on his way.
We searched his pants pockets, counters, under the sofa cushions, the car, even drove to the last place where he used one of his cards.
I pulled all the bedding off the bed and frisked the top of his dresser.
Enough. Time to call in the pro.
I roamed about my house and said, "God, we've looked more than once in all the obvious places, I need an idea where the unusual place is."
I stopped in my bedroom in front of the suitcase hubby uses for most of his work trips and thought, Nah, it wouldn't be in there. He didn't use the suitcase yesterday, but he did use his wallet yesterday.
I nearly had to step over the suitcase to take another step which for some crazy reason was left in the walk path.
I rolled my eyes and thought there is no reason the wallet would be in this suitcase. NONE AT ALL.
My foot scraped against the fabric. I knew it. God clearly told me to check the suitcase. I picked it up, set it on the bed, and unzipped the compartments, shoving my hand deep into each one. Nothing.
I unzipped the main compartment lifted the lid and--you guessed it--the wallet was there! I burst out laughing. This was the funniest God moment in a while. The wallet was in the suitcase.
I don't know. But, God did and He showed me. Isn't God wonderful?
Friend, your turn. Share something amazing God has done for you or your family.
