Lost and Found

Lost and Found

Okay, here's an update for y'all.

So remember this week I told you that my car was broken into and my purse, makeup bag, and computer were stolen out of the trunk?!?!?

On Tuesday, I got a phone call from a man who told me that he and his wife were in midtown where they found my purse, along with my makeup bag, and wallet. WHAT?!? After some coordination, I met up with his wife in Sugar Land, and by Wednesday evening I had the contents of my purse back. With the exception of a few brushes, and the purse itself, my makeup and wallet are OK! 

WHAT?!

How does this even happen?! In what scenario does something like this happen? He found my business card in my wallet and contacted me at work. He said that it had been drenched in the rain - the purse took the most damage, but they took it home and were going to hold onto it until they could get in touch with me. And like I said, the makeup itself? NOT DAMAGED. That is GOD.

God will show up in the little things - in the tiniest details - to let us know that He cares and that He's with us. I was having a hard week - some of my hopes were dashed; things were not turning out the way I imagined them to, and then BAM! God showed up in the midst and gave me just a tiny glimpse of his goodness and reminded me that He sees me, and He cares. It was just enough to shake me out of my funk and remind me to keep going and to trust His plan for my life.

I hope this encourages you in some way, just as it's encouraged me greatly. When God does something good, you just gotta talk about it! 

Now don't mind me as I dance off into my 15 minute praise break.

Always,

Nina
