Being a Christian, one of the biggest anchor that I cling to, is that God is in absolute control of every aspect of my life. Things have been a little rough lately in the work aspect and trying to make sense of it has been a little frustrating.
The incident that I am about to share reminded me of how much in control our God is of each one of our lives and of every little thing as well. So, the other day my sister had landed late at night from an official trip. As the car came to drop her home I went down to help her with her luggage. We came back up and were about to retire for the day when I realised that I could not find my phone. I traced my steps back and was trying to figure out where did I last keep it. When I did remember, my heart just sank.
When I had gone to down to help my sister with the bags, I kept my phone on the roof of the car and had forgotten to take it back. We called the driver and he said that he was already a few kilometers away. He asked us to check the surrounding areas but we did not find it.
We turned back to head home when the driver called us and said that he stopped to check, and he found the phone right where I had left it- on top of the car!
I really did not know what to say. He came back and handed me the phone and was equally surprised as to how it did not fall off.
God showed me my place that day by proving that he was in absolute control of the speed of the car, the position of my cell phone and every thing else that kept it in it’s location.
I always knew that the Lord is in control of my life, and all the situations that come in it, but I think I needed a more practical lesson to let it sink in deeper.
So here I am writing this post from the same phone that had a ride on the top of a car;)
