It was a really big deal.
I had recently received a package at work with an order I had sent out some time before.
There were several items in the package that were quite important.
Last week, I was working at a different location and I had taken the box and its contents with me.
Today, I was once again going to work at a different location.
I needed two of the items in the box.
Where was it?
I looked all over my area, to no avail.
I considered that I might have left the box in my car from last week.
Checking there, still I could not find it.
It didn’t make any sense.
Walking alone into the area nearest my office, I prayed.
My prayer was something like this:
“Lord, if that box is in this room somewhere, would you please let me find it?”
Almost immediately, in perhaps only a second or two, my eyes fell on the box.
It had been placed in a tall chair and I just had not seen it before.
A reminder that God is with me through every moment of the day.
He is ready to help me, even if it is only to find a box.
In the Old Testament book of Isaiah, God is describing what things will be like when there is a new heaven and a new earth.
He says, “Before they call I will answer;
while they are yet speaking I will hear.“
I feel that I experienced this today.
How blessed we are to have a heavenly Father who cares about us and hears us when we call.
