It’s Not Where I Looked!
This morning, God showed me something quite profound as I was getting ready for work. He seems to drop a word in my ear most times when I am brushing my teeth in the morning. Maybe it’s because He can get a word in when my mouth is full of toothpaste!
I had brushed my teeth and washed my face and was getting ready to put on my make-up. I have a little wicker basket that I keep in the cabinet under the sink with all those womanly make-up accoutrements in it. On auto-pilot, I opened the cabinet door and, much to my surprise, the basket was not there. “That’s odd!” I thought. “Where did it go?” I opened the other cabinet door, but it wasn’t there either. Then I looked up on the counter next to the sink and there sat my basket.
Now when I said a minute ago that it is a little wicker basket, that might be deceiving. It’s actually about the size of an Easter basket – and was probably used as one many years ago when our children were little. It even has a handle! I say all this to help you understand that this is not a basket that hides behind the toothbrush still sitting on the counter.
After looking under the cabinet and being puzzled, when I discovered it sitting on the counter, the very counter in front of which I had been standing to wash my face and brush my teeth for the last several minutes, I heard God say, “What you need is always there – just not necessarily where you have been looking or where you have been accustomed to finding it!”
So, my word to you for the day is, what you need is always there – just not necessarily where you have been looking or where you have been accustomed to finding it in the past!” We are here to help, to pray with you, to pour into your life, to love you and your families. Let’s look together!
