Ever since I ran Sunday morning I have not been able to find my running watch. I bought this thing right after I moved to Dallas and it has been such a great companion. Seriously, I don't know what I did before I had this thing. I really has revolutionized my running and makes it so much easier.
It has been driving me nuts, though, not being able to find it. I don't really misplace things often so it really drives me crazy when I can't remember where I put things. These past two days I have been searching high and low to find it and it was nowhere to be found.
Rather than go into panic mode, I decided to take a different route (for once). I asked God to show me where it was. I even had someone tell me that it doesn't really work like that when you are trying to find things. But I really knew that He would show me where I put the stupid thing. It was one of those things where I said "Lord, if it's gone, let me know that it's gone so that I can move on. But if it's here, show me where it is." I knew I wasn't going to find it on my own.
So late last night I was putting some things away in my room. I got ready for bed and everything, and for some reason opened the bottom drawer in my bathroom. I really cannot remember what I was looking for in the drawer. And lo and behold, underneath my HAIRDRYER, was my watch. Seriously, I have NO idea when I put that thing in there. There is no reason for my watch to be with my brushes and hairdryer.
But I found it! OR God showed me where it was. I just busted out laughing when I saw it. God has such a sense of humor sometimes. But the best part was that I just felt His presence. Even looking for a watch WITH God gave me such joy! Just to know that He is walking with me through every part of my day and life is so amazing to me. It makes me smile just to think about that story. I'm so thankful that I lost my watch so that God could be glorified in such a small way!
