A Welcome Surprise!

Have you ever been shopping and just browsing and you find a great surprise of something that was calling your name?  Maybe it was something that was in the wrong spot or something that was in the right spot but you didn’t know you were looking for it and there it popped out at you.  You knew it was calling your name!  (I do that a lot with purses!! hahaha)

This morning that happened to me as I was having my quiet time, reading my devotions and swinging on my glider.  I was reading a passage in the Bible that was in my devotion but I decided to read a little further and look at the sections that I had underlined previously or highlighted just to see if God had something else for me today.

And there it was……….in the book of Lamentations…. yes there is a book in the Bible called Lamentations and I must admit I don’t read it a lot but apparently in 2015 I had read it and marked this scripture with a date and note of what I was praying for at the time.  And it spoke to me today just as much as it did 2 years ago.

Lamentations 3:25-26 – The Lord is good to those whose hope is in Him, to the one who seeks Him; it is good to wait quietly for the salvation of the Lord.

Exactly what I needed in a spot I wasn’t looking but caught my attention and gave me peace.  It wasn’t a purse but it is words that I can carry around in the pocketbook of my heart!  Thank you, Lord for showing me the best things in the most unlikely of times!
