The Search For My Headphones

Tomorrow, we have our closing on our construction loan for the new house we're building.  This is the third closing of four that we are going to be doing.  This time its with a different closing attorney.  I'm grateful we were led to Hunter Battle of The People's State Bank, who is handling our lender.  He was able to push our closing to tomorrow even after the appraiser only had 2 days since he got the plans and review the property and put together the appraisal.  Unbelievable.  Even Mickey Barnes, our builder, was amazed at how quick he was able to put it all together.  So, I'm grateful to him for doing that.  I'm also very blessed to have found the builder we did.  We have so much favor.  God is definitely looking after and over our family.  My focus today will be on His faithfulness and His favor over us.  I will look for opportunities to praise Him today.

Last night, speaking of praising Him, I was frustrated because I couldn't find my white headphones for my iPhone and also the blue camera we bought.  I have been looking for them on and off for the last two weeks since we came back from Florida.  We are going away on a 10 day trip tomorrow and I could really use them for the travel.  By 9pm Krissy had a great idea - to pray and ask God to help us find them both.  So, she brought Anthem over to my side and both of them put their hands on my right arm and prayed.  Krissy prayed while Anthem bowed her head in earnestness while keeping her hand on my arm.  After Krissy was done asking God to show us where both the headphones and camera were, we both waited in silence for Anthem to stop praying.  She continued bowing her head in earnestness being quiet for at least 30 more seconds.  It was a very sweet moment, because, even though she wasn't saying anything, we could both tell she was earnest and serious about her prayer to God.  When she finally raised her head and took her hand off my arm, Krissy asked her if she heard God tell her where the headphones and camera were.  Well, she immediately pointed over towards the foyer area of our condo.  Krissy pressed her for more information asking her "where over there?"  Anthem said, "In da bag." - in almost a Michigan accent. "In what bag?", Krissy asked.  Anthem said, "In Daddy's bag."  Aha, so the three of us went over first to my briefcase that I was sitting in the foyer and looked through it.  We didn't find anything in there.  I wasn't too hopeful about that because I had already looked through it countless times.   So, then Krissy and Anthem opened the little foyer closet to look for another bag.  They found my little carrying bag that I last took with me to New York as a carry-on for the plane.  Low and behold, after looking for several seconds, Krissy spotted my little white headphones and pulled them out with glee!  All three of us and the boys (who came running over when they heard our cheers) were praising God!  He had shown Anthem where to look for my headphones!  What is amazing as I think back about it this morning, is that Anthem heard God say it was my BAG.  We were looking in my briefcase first, not my bag.  He clearly told her it was in my BAG.  That small GMA bag of mine was tucked away almost hidden (because it's black) in that small dark closet.  I believe she truly heard from the Lord about my headphones.  I praise God for speaking to her in that way.  It was a faith-building moment for us.

I looked for another 15 minutes asking Anthem the whole time where my camera could be.  She directed me to the storage closet in the hall outside our condo.  We looked in every other bag we had with us at the condo complex - to no avail.  However, I have faith that God will show us where that camera is in His timing.  He loves us so much to care about the little things in our lives.
