Right in Front of Me

I wanted to do a follow up to my "one of those days" post I wrote last week. I told you in that post that I lost something important. That something was a key.

You have to understand that I NEEDED this key. I looked everywhere for it along with my husband, my mother, and a few kind strangers. I checked in my pockets and in the hem of shorts in case it had caught in there when it fell. I did all of these things MULTIPLE times.

After all of that frustration, I finally sat down and read some scripture. I received that peace from Him and had resigned myself to the fact that I had lost the key. Finally, when I was almost ready to get off the couch and head to bed, I prayed about it. Yes, I prayed about a key.

I got up and went to get ready for bed. When I pulled off my shorts, I heard the distinct sound of metal hitting my floor. I looked down, and there was that key. All I can tell you is it was a miracle. I'm pregnant, so we know realistically that I had visited the potty several times in the hours since I lost the key. That key would have fallen out one of those times. I had checked in my pockets and the hem MULTIPLE times and no key.

Apparently, God was just waiting on me to find some humility and pray about it instead of trying to handle it on my own. So, what did I learn? He wants us to pray about everything. Even the little things like a small silver key.

Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.
Philippians 4:6
