God's colored pencils splashed across the sky in San Jose, Costa Rica
I have a secret to share ... I'm on a journey this week. A journey of hearing God's voice and teaching others as well. Tonight, as I sat to prepare my teaching, I couldn't find my favorite colored pencils, you know my favorites, the ones that just perfectly underline things and feel comfy in my fingers.
In the grand scheme of preparing a lesson for a 5 day teaching (with only a day's notice) the pencils were not super important. But, they were to me.
I asked everyone, my family, the guests in our home, nothing. I looked in all the normal places, nada. A bit sad, I almost gave up. But then that still small voice, the One I am learning to listen to, told me to look in a certain box. (where the pencils would never be)
For those of you who don't know me, I love being organized, I would never have looked in the wrong place for my chosen sticks of color, without a gentle nudge. But, they were right there.
Without even thinking, I said out loud "YAY Jesus! I love it when He does that for me." and skipped up the stairs to keep preparing, pencils in hand.
God delights to communicate with us on the big things, and the little colored pencils in our lives. May He color on your life today with all of His promises.
