Have you ever lost your keys or maybe someone else's keys? Did it send you into a panic? Were you stuck at home or somewhere else?
Last month I lost my keys at an out of town Christmas Market where we were a vendor. Fortunately we had already unloaded all our products and we were set up. I looked for the keys in my purse, pockets, under the table, retraced my steps. Maybe the keys were on the ground near the van? Nothing. Could not find them anywhere. It was as if they had disappeared.
I went outside walked back to my van looking for the keys in the bushes, along the curb, went inside the fitness center and asked if they were turned in. Nothing. Walking back to the venue I heard God say to me, "Don't worry. I know where your keys are." I thanked God that He knew where they were and that He would tell me where they were when I needed to know. Then I went back inside.
My lovely assistant (whom I adore) asked if I found the keys. "Nope." I answered calmly and matter-of-factly. Then I told her what God told me. The look on her face was priceless. It was probably a similar look to yours when you read the previous paragraph. Part quizzical, part unbelief, part ok. You see she rode over with me so she was "stuck" there too.
The event ended and still no sign of my keys. We did another look around and asked to see if any keys were turned in. Nothing. I always carry a spare car key in my wallet so we ended up using that to load up and leave. The entire time I truly had peace and wasn't worried about the lost keys.
I dropped her off and before leaving her house decided to empty my purse of its contents. Lo and behold, there on the bottom of my purse sat my keys. I had looked there before but didn't see them. It was a wonderful find! I said to her, "See, God told me He knew where they were." (smile!)
But wait. The story doesn't end here. There's more! On Monday you will read Part II. It's pretty awesome.
So the next time you lose your keys don't lose your mind too. God sees where they are. Doesn't that make you feel better?
