I had to do an errand for work. In the midst of an overwhelmed mindset, I hoped to get in, out, and on my way. The night before had many hours of not sleeping. Often, when that happens, I either need to shut off my brain or God is curbing the high-strung edge off so I will be less tense the following day.
The latter was the case. I showed up at the errend location to find a slow-moving line of over 50 people where usually there are 5. He increased the time required ten-fold. TEN-FOLD! You know what else He increases ten-fold? Blessings. And mercy
God delivered ten-fold in His mercy. I needed to slow down, get perspective. And waiting in line ten times as long as normal gave me exactly that opportunity.
Not what I wanted. Not what I planned. And exactly what I needed.
God is funny like that.
