Last week I attended a Beth Moore Bible study on the book of Esther.
At one point during the study, Beth said, “He knew I’d be a girl.”
For some reason, hearing that brought tears to my eyes. I thought about my most recent trip to Las Vegas with my Mom and sisters and how God took care of me even as I was traveling alone.
I decided the last minute to meet them in Vegas for their business’s yearly, international meeting. I drove 2 hours to get to nearest large airport and arrived 1 hour and 15 minutes before the plane’s departure. I parked in an open spot and hopped on the shuttle bus, making in it perfect time to the airport and my gate.
I had a great time seeing both of my sisters, my mom, my brother-in-law, my niece and nephew, one of my best friends and so many other friends at Arbonne’s GTC. 🙂
Side note: I love all the new nutritional products from Arbonne.
After the conference was over, I got an earlier ticket, flying standby to make it to Indiana in time for a concert.
On the flight from Philly to Indianapolis I started formulating a plan that would get me to Fort Wayne as quickly as possible. I would be landing at 11pm and probably crawl into bed after 1am. And really didn’t want to be exhausted for the concert the next day.
I don’t prefer traveling alone. Especially late at night in wintry weather.
I asked a man on the flight about the shuttle bus schedule. He recommended I take the walkway from the parking garage to the long-term parking lot; where my car was parked.He actually showed me the direction to go. I began thinking about paying for parking and how much cash I needed.
I was $10 short but figured that I could probably pay with a card. I walked down a flight of stairs and saw some money on the ground. I did a little happy dance inside when I realized no one was around and that the amount was $11.
The temperature was -4 degrees F and since I packed light for my trip to Vegas I was only wearing my light weight coat. I began to hope that I’d find my car quickly.
I reached the end of the walkway and at the end was my car; the car closest to the walkway.
I know these things may sound trivial but as I sat in the Beth Moore bible study I was reminded of these small things and the significance of God knowing I’d be a girl. It means so much when He shows His care and protection for me when I’m all alone.
