~ Isaiah 55:9 ~ “As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.
This morning the above scripture reminded me of the frailty of our anxieties. I made reservations for travel for our two daughters and myself to travel upcountry in advance, because i like particular sitting areas on the bus.
Come last evening, one of my daughters became unwell. I then considered taking our son with us but my daughter told me he was not really up to it, so i would be ruining his holiday.
This morning we get to the bus just under five minutes to departure. As i rush to the door after overseeing the loading of our baggage, a gentleman comes beside me and interrupts the security guard with an urgent question. “Is this bus full?” The guard answers in the affirmative and i tell him i have an extra ticket if he is interested. Turns out he even likes the seat i have to offer and pays me for it.
The amazing thing is that, as the bus takes off, i realize that we have at least three vacant seats! How faithful is God? I did not stress about loosing my 1500shs, which of course is non refundable at such short notice. But the Lord had noted down and refunded me. He also cared about this man’s sitting preference and so blinded the bus conductor to the fact that they had vacant seats they could sell to him directly. I truly love how God works perfectly when we allow Him by trusting and obeying Him.
My prayer is for you to trust and obey Him the remainder of this year and be amazed at how accurately He will direct your paths, in Jesus’ name i pray. Amen!
