Sure enough, I arrived in my home airport and headed to baggage claim, only to watch everyone else grabbing their bags, until finally I was left standing there all alone gazing at three lone bags circling. None of them were mine.
I reported the missing bag. The agent told me that it would be delivered to my door the following day. I walked out toward my parked car and that’s when I began thanking God for a missing bag. You see, the suitcase I’d checked did not have wheels.
When I had started my trip several days earlier, the parking lot was so full that I had to park at the far end. I unloaded my luggage and started toward the terminal, but before I’d gone very far I realized that I had packed my bag way too full. Hunched over from the weight, I set my sights on a terminal which didn’t get closer fast enough. Every few steps I stopped to switch the suitcase to my other hand. What a relief to finally hand it over to someone else!
Now on my return, God had graciously saved me from having to lug that heavy bag across the parking lot again. Instead He arranged to have it delivered right to my door only 22 hours later, all intact. Isn’t He good?!
