The other day I was at our Community Bible Study. It’s Thursday mornings. My 15 year old daughter is in my small group. It’s beautiful to have her in there with 10 other wise women sowing wisdom into her mind and heart.
For the previous 3 weeks, my life has been stressful, for a variety of reasons I won’t bore you with. Seems like I was just constantly doing life and saying “Help me God.” Doing some more life. “Help me God.” And over and over.
I did all my homework the night before class (you’re supposed to do a little each day of the week) and I was excited to see that the topic was the Proverbs 31 Woman. I had debated about going, thinking “I’m too busy.” But when I saw that topic, AND remembered that that is exactly where I SHOULD be when I think I’m too busy, I knew we were going!
So during our small group discussion I got a text. It dinged loud. I quickly turned it off and would check it later. We moved up to the sanctuary for the large group lecture.
The lecturer talked about rubies detailing their worth, and specifics about their value, that they are the most valuable of gems, etc, etc.
And then. The well-known verse about the Proverbs 31 woman (Proverbs 31:10-11)
A wife of noble character who can find? She is worth far more than rubies. Her husband has full confidence in her and lacks nothing of value.
I love that verse and have heard it for years.
At the end of the lecture, I looked at my phone.
This text was from my husband and here is what it said.
Wow! I don’t own a silver ring with a ruby in it and I’ve never seen one in my house and how amazing that THAT text came through at THAT time. It was a God moment!
God Does It Again
Once again, He shows up. He is so faithful. I took this as Him saying, “Don’t worry my daughter. I’m here. I’m always here. And you are worth far more than rubies.”
I thought, “I can’t wait to see this ring. And I don’t really care if it’s real or not or if it belongs to someone else (I’d give it back of course). But I need to see it!”
And here it is.
It Fits My Little Finger Perfectly
A few days later my 11 year old daughter told me she got it from my mother-in-law’s house when it was recently cleaned out. She said, You can have it. Really? Are you sure? Yes, I never wear it. It doesn’t fit.
I’m wearing it now and love looking at it for that reminder. Someday she will get it back. At the appropriate time.
God talks to us all the time. Look for those moments and know, it isn’t a coincidence!
I’d love to hear about any of your large or small God moments, and I’m sure others would too!
