The Lord is the one who goes ahead of you; He will be with you. He will not fail you or forsake you. Do not fear or be dismayed. Deuteronomy 31:8
The day had been just one more drop in the bucket of chaos that described my week. My email inbox overflowed, I’d missed a deadline, my dog threw up. We’d been fighting car issues, appliance issues, and just all-round insanity.
Now I was at the grocery store, digging in my purse for a quarter so I could get a much-needed grocery cart and all I had were nickels and pennies. In my mind I could feel the frustration building as I shot a flare prayer heavenward. Really God? Can’t anything come easy this week?
Then I spied it, a single large coin in the dark corner of my wallet. From the size I was certain is was a quarter. I pulled it out and had to stop and smile.
The silver-toned coin was indeed the size of a quarter, but instead of George Washington’s profile I spied the relief of an angel. Somewhere in the midst of my hectic week, I’d been given this coin as change instead of legal tender.
As I held the small silver disc, I felt a sense of peace fill my spirit. It was a tangible reminder that God truly was in control.
How has God reminded you lately that He still has everything well in hand?
