After spending my time praying and walking in nature’s beauty, I sat at a picnic table next to the parking lot to read my Bible. As darkness set in, I decided to go home.
I got up early for my Saturday morning Bible study. I hopped into the car and noticed that my Bible which normally sat on the passenger's seat was missing. I vaulted out of the car and looked under both car seats. I even decided to search in the trunk. Then I remembered how I felt at peace listening to the sounds of nature. I had this inspiration, I remembered the last time I had it was when I sat at the picnic bench.
I leaped back into the car and sped off on Lebanon Avenue. I started to pray.
"Dear Lord, Please help me find my Bible. I have learning disabilities, it's the only translation that speaks to me. I love it because it's so small. That is why I need this Bible."
I arrived at the intersection of Lebanon Avenue and Route 161. The park was a half of a mile down the road on the right. I pulled into the lot and darted towards the picnic bench. "Praise the Lord! It's still there," I jumped up and down. It was right where I left it last night.
I knelt by the picnic table and prayed. "Dear Jesus, Thank you for preserving the word. Someone could have come and taken my Bible. It could have rained and it would have been soaked. Lord, this Bible has meant so much to me because the words speak to my heart. I thank you for taking care of my Bible. I don’t know what I was thinking last night when I left it here. Thanks again for preserving your word. In Jesus name, Amen."
The cool thing was I wasn't late to my Bible study. Boy, did I have a story to tell of God's goodness.
