Psalm 16:8 “I keep my eyes always on the Lord. With him at my right hand, I will not be shaken” (NIV).
Psalm 62:8 “Trust in Him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to Him, for God is our refuge” (NIV).
Oh my God! I can’t find my red thumb drive with all my materials for my devotion blog ministry. As I emptied out my purse, there was no red thumb drive in sight. I dug through my “teacher bag” and there was no red thumb drive. However, I remained calm and stayed positive. I looked under the kitchen table. I searched in my office and there was no thumb drive in sight.
After searching for two hours, I began to panic and started to get sick to my stomach. I took a deep breath and decided to run an errand. My errand was to go church (where I am member) to drop off some information. As I entered into the church, three Sisters of the church asked what was wrong me. I began to explain how I had misplaced my red thumb drive that housed ALL of my ministry materials. The three Sisters of the church began to speak positive and power thoughts to me. They never once said a negative word. As I was listening to them, I began to listen to God as He spoke to me. He said, “Take your eyes off of the “red” thumb drive and put them back on Me”! The Great I am!
As I drove home, God began to talk louder and louder to me. Upon pulling in the garage, God lead me back to the places I had already looked and emptied out. He said, “Take out everything in your “teacher bag” and go back through the papers again. It was there! The “red” thumb drive was wedged between the stack of papers inside the bag.
I began to rejoice and praise God. When I praised God, He responded with a worship experience. The worship experience was so awesome that I began to weep. After worshipping with God, I texted the three Sisters and thank them for the deposit of positive and powerful thoughts.
Reflection: Even in the small things, I must trust Him!
No matter what I need, I will trust You!
