Have you ever found yourself in a sticky situation where you have only a few days to prepare yourself and you find that the most essential thing you need is missing?
Well that was me this week. Well… at least for the past 24 hours. I sat organising myself for the week ahead when I came across an email from Ryanair prompting me to Check-in online. Obediently, I responded as I knew that if I didn’t do it now then I might not even get the chance to do it in time, and consequently tear-my-hair-out stressing over it! However, in the process of entering my details online, one of the questions required my passport details, to which I thought, well its in my bag (I was in bed so felt lazy, so had to crawl over to the end of my bed to pick the bag)! Only to find to my horror, it wasn’t there. Herein started the frantic search for my beautiful pink-covered passport! At this point, I had one of two choices:
1) Freak Out and lose my peace and then go completely blank that I won’t find it (or)
2) Remain calm, ask about and keep my peace and get others to pray.
Needless to say I chose option two, although, I still was quite anxious. So I kept telling myself, you will find it! You will Find it! then I felt the Holy Spirit reply, “Yes, you will find it and you will go to Germany.“
Long story short, I prayed, hollered, thanked, praised, sung, freaked a little, and asked and sought. To no avail, I didn’t find it yesterday. But, on arriving home today after a Trading game lesson in Wren Academy, within 15mins of Topsy turveying my room again with Holy Spirit’s prompting, I FOUND IT!!!! it was hidden in a safe-keeping bag with all my important documents in a french capri-sun bag inbetween my laundry basket and my chest of draws. YAAAAAAAY!!!! HOORAAAY!!! YIPPEEEE! PTL!
After rejoicing, screaming for joy and jumping and dancing, I rushed to tell everyone about it like I’m doing now, and then I felt the Holy Spirit tell me that this was what the Kingdom of Heaven was like and I will quote from my facebook status (for those not following me on Twitter and/or Facebook please check it out!):
THE KINGDOM OF HEAVEN IS LIKE A WOMAN WHO LOST HER PASSPORT WHICH WAS HER TICKET AND HER IDENTITY TO THE NEXT PHASE OF HER LIFE, SO SHE LOOKED AND SEARCHED, AND SEARCHED, AND SOUGHT UNTIL SHE FOUND IT. WHEN SHE FOUND IT, SHE REJOICED AND CALLED ALL HER FRIENDS AND NEIGHBOURS TO CELEBRATE/REJOICE WITH HER FOR WHAT WAS LOST WAS NOW FOUND. IF SHE, BEING EVIL SOUGHT OUT FOR THAT WHICH SHE CARED FOR WAS LOST, HOW MUCH YOUR FATHER IN HEAVEN WHO IS GOOD, CARE FOR EVEN THE TINIEST DETAILS OF YOUR LIFE, AND CARE FOR YOU AND FIND YOU WHEN YOU ARE LOST. #IAMLOVED!!! NOW HERE’S FOR MISSION TO GERMANY!!! 😀 😀
PSS: Oh and, remember where you put it next time!!! yup…that too…
As ever, Keeping it Real,
The Elected Lady xx
