Present Moment, Quality of life

Finding Favor

We are in Missouri! God’s favor is all over this trip. I have a fireplace in my room, and Starbuck’s is right across the street. It’s cold, but nothing like Texas cold. I’m grateful.

The first thing on the Agenda today, was a haircut. I literally woke up with more hair than desired. The rental car is a Jeep Cherokee, so you know my daughter and I had a squealing Gilmore Girls moment over that! I hopped in and drove across the street to a shopping center, and after circling around the building, there was a salon named, “Bliss”. Perfect.

They could probably tell I was from Texas. I walked in wearing a white t-shirt, jeans, boots, and a jean jacket. If they couldn’t tell by looking at me, they knew as soon as I opened my mouth! This young girl offered to cut my hair, and I told her what I wanted. “Leave the top, and shave the sides and back. I’m going for the James Charles look, without the makeup.”

She didn’t know James Charles, so I had to show her a picture. If you don’t know who he is, James is Cover Girl’s first “Cover Boy!” Not only is he beautiful, he has massively good hair.

The hairstylist met me at the counter with a bag filled with goodies. It was her way of saying thank you, and it was very sweet. Below the counter were some candles for sale, and not just any candle. One of my faves, Woodwick. I was sitting in my hotel room lastnight missing my candles. They give a feeling of warmth, and they make your space smell great.

It was like she knew my heart, and put my favorite color tissue in the bag. Red and gold.

God knows my heart, and this is a picture of complete happiness for this girl.

Yes, I got stranded at Starbucks for a while. Where I chose to park, was where the trucks like to unload, so I was blocked in. That’s okay, because I am in ‘No Rush’ mode today.

I went into Starbucks, and placed my order. As I was waiting, I saw some mugs they had on clearance. Like, I need one more mug, but this was not a need. It was a longtime want.

I saw this mug at Christmas, and wanted it then, but it was full price. Today, it was the only one sitting there like it, and it was half price. Come to Mama! I see it as God’s favor.

The title of this Blog came to me as I arrived back at the hotel. I came into my room, turned on the fireplace, lit my new candle, and started a cup of tea. Picking up my daily devotional, this is what today’s word said. It reminded me of how every moment has been covered in His favor. From the flight, to the rental car, to the hotel, and especially today.

“Trust Me Enough to spend ample time with Me, pushing back the demands of the day. Refuse to feel guilty about something that is so pleasing to Me, the King of the universe. Because I am omnipotent, I am able to bend time and events in your favor. Also, as you align yourself with My perspective, you can sort out what is important, and what is not.” (Excerpt from Jesus Calling page 43)

I hope you are seeing God’s favor in your life. No coincidence, just finding favor.

    1. My daughter gave me this devotional in December 2013. It amazes me how it seems new every year I read it. His word doesn’t change, but our lives do, and it seems to always fit! I LOVE that you are reading it too! Connected from the get go! #Soulsistas ❀
