Devotional - Tuesday, September 5, 2017 248/117

Today's Scripture: "Therefore they sought again to seize Him, but He escaped out of their hand." Jn 10:39

5923. To find something, you don't necessarily have to be looking for it. JG


See it.

Now you don't

Live it.

Don't you love moving/cleaning days? That's when you find things you misplaced and other things you forgot you had. But even more amazing is the fact I will put something today where I expect to find when I need it and then give up finding it later. There have been days when I have sat at my desk and turned 360 degrees slowly in my chair trying to locate something I know is there but can't find. Then days later I see it when I'm not looking for it and wonder why I couldn't find it when I was. That's highly frustrating but a typical day around here.

I could tell you stories of looking for other things that weren't missing, like when I've looked for my glasses and they were on top of my head. Another time I was singing a solo in church but forgot the lyrics and in desperation sang the words to a different song without skipping a beat. But that wasn't the most embarrassing. I especially like the time I was leaving church and got down the road before remembering I left one of our children behind. You should know I did go back and get her, and while those were embarrassing times, but no one is void of forgetfulness.

Pray it.

I am thankful, Heavenly Father, that You found me and have never misplaced me.
