While on this trip I discovered a unique ability I have to find stuff! During one of the first sessions, I went to the restroom. On the way back to my seat, I noticed a line of pay phones (Remember those anyone?) outside the restrooms. I saw a place that said "change" on the phone, and I put my finger in and found money!!! From that moment on I was checking the change slot on every pay phone and vending machine, and I made some serious cash...about $8 - $10!! It also opened my eyes to the possibilities of what could be "found!" I still check them today!
We recently went on a miracle vacation in South Alabama. As many of you know, we are walking a journey of faith to build"weDIGit" and follow the Lord's voice day to day. The Lord provided us this week through an amazing family who helped make the vacation possible. It has been a HUGE blessing to our family. (I will share that story soon as well) One of the first days on the beach we were walking in the water. It was very clear, and we could easily see the bottom. Because I am ALWAYS looking, after my eye opening experience in Albuquerque, I noticed a pair of sunglasses on the bottom of the ocean floor. It was a nice pair of women's sunglasses. I gave them to Donna and continued looking! In a few minutes I heard Donna laughing. She called me over and showed me that on the inside of the frame there was a verse inscribed, Psalm 18:2. It was very significant because several months back the Lord showed Donna that very passage. It became a chapter that not only
What are the odds that pair of sunglasses, would wash up right in front of where we were on the beach, at that moment in time as we were walking, with that verse inscribed on the inside? Pretty crazy huh? You know what's cool...we are learning to expect that from our God! It is what the whole chapter of Psalm 18 describes. A God that desires for us to obey and love Him, so that He can do what only HE CAN DO in our lives as we completely trust Him.
When the Lord led Donna to Psalm 18 it confirmed to us both that the journey is worth it! It will be difficult at times, and we will have many questions that we wrestle with along the way. But when we CHOOSE to live a life of abandon and obedience, we will begin to walk and grow in our Faith in Christ like never before. As our faith deepens and grows we will know that not only is God with us, but He promises to protect and guide us on our journey of faith.
We didn't NEED a pair of sunglasses to wash up on the shore to validate our journey this week. That's why Donna laughed! Because it becomes more and more amazing to experience Him intimately and know that He is with us each step of the way. Then we can smile and chuckle a bit when our Father washes up a pair of sunglasses onto a shore as we are walking in obedience with Him. That's how children react when their Father does cool things in their lives.
Be encouraged today! God knows right where you are, and He is always faithful! "What a God! His road stretches straight and smooth. Every God-direction is road tested. Everyone who runs toward Him makes it!" (Psalm 18:30)
