“We live by faith, not by sight.” — 2 Corinthians 5:7 (NIV)
Once, when I was barely scraping by as an associate pastor, I asked God to help me find some money. I needed $300 fast, and the only way I knew to get it was to sell my beloved guitar. I told a local music shop owner my instrument was for sale, then restrung my guitar and polished it up. I sat it on a stand and prayed with true faith, “There it is, Lord…”
About five minutes later, the shop owner called. Someone was in his store looking for a guitar like mine! I brought my instrument to the shop and sold it to a gentleman on the spot for $400. The money was enough to cover my need, plus buy another guitar (less fancy, of course) to get me by.
God orchestrated the entire transaction!
As often happens here on Word Press, it was another blogger’s post that jogged my memory. Marie, from Blog with Marie, helped me remember a spiritual marker of my own.
She wrote about misplacing a heart shaped ring her mother gave her upon the birth of her first child. It wasn’t an expensive piece of jewelry, but held great sentimental value. Marie retraced her steps, praying to God all the while that He would show her where it was.
Did she find it? Click or tap over to her excellent post to find out!
I close with Marie’s parting thought–one that prompted this ENTIRE post:
“Have you had a similar experience where you asked the Lord to help you locate something and He has? How did it make you feel? I’d love to hear about your experience.”
Tag, kind reader. You’re it! Please share about a time when God came through for you.
🙏❤️ prayers and love.
