Like so many Christians. I began choosing one word for the year that leads me more into learning more of God through scripture. This year, I felt that my word was “wonder” and I began a quest of all the scriptures that had the word wonder in them. Each day I write one of the scriptures in my booklet and pray that God would help me to see His wonder even in the small things that already are and that happen around me! As Randy and I enter a new season of having to accept some changes in our lifestyles and get used to a more quiet day not going many places we use to go and be at home more than we would normally want!
Today He gave me a “wonder” that made me cry, as I sat and truly contemplated what He had just done. Not only was it a blessing to the lady that it happened, but to me as it was just so amazing to see that God is everywhere and in everything! This morning as Randy and I had our morning devotion, I ask the Lord to help me make at least 3 people smile today and to let me see His wonder in a way I had not seen before….and He did just that!!
Needing stamps. I made my way Into the PO in Frisco by our house. As normal, instead of standing in long lines, I just use the machines! When trying to insert my credit card to pay, the screen just kept saying “please remove your card”. I had not even inserted my card. After about 3 tries, I looked down to see that there was a card already in the slot! So I removed it and paid for my stamps with my card. Taking the card that wasn’t mine to the counter, I turned it in but not before looking at the name on it. Helena Marco. Well, I’ll just sit in my car and try to find this lady. So that’s what I did. I looked for her on Facebook, but only one I could find was in France. Looking across the street I noticed Marcos Pizza. So I called them to see if there was a family member whose name was Helena as I could tell her where her credit card was. No such luck. So I headed to a store to pick up items at Tom Thumb when I felt the urge to go ahead and go to Dollar Store first. I still had days to get what I would be going for, but just decided to go ahead and get that errand behind me. So into the dollar store I went. As I gathered 4-5 items i walked up to the checkout behind a lady who had a couple of items herself. When she pulled out her wallet to get her credit card, I heard her say “oh no. My credit cards not here”! As soon as I heard the words, I knew she was Helena Marco. I ask her if she was by any chance Helena and she said yes I’m Helena Marco before I could finish my sentence. I told her where her credit card was and she couldn’t believe the timing and what had just transpired. I told her “you know, Only the Lord could have done this!” She agreed and couldn’t thank me enough. I got to the car and just couldn’t control the tears that came as I thought of how amazing our God truly is and the wonders He does each day, if only we had our eyes and hearts open to not only see but expect these wonders! What a blessing it was to me to see how he orchestrated this! May His wonders never cease to amaze me and be grateful for His love and faithfulness, which in itself is a most wonderful “wonder”. He is, after all, the God of Grace!
