On the way to Indiana, the Lord brought to my remembrance how I used to dream about what my life would be like if I lived in the different cities where my parents and I would exit to get gas as we journeyed to Ohio to visit relatives every summer. I used to dream about who my friends would be, what school I would attend, about the neighborhood I would live in, what church would be like…and then He revealed how He made that dream become a reality as I got to do just that as a team member in the TTR ministry. You see, we get to stay in host homes, attend different churches, and meet new people within each community we are invited into!
Then, one evening in Miami Co., the prayer team met in a nearby chapel. It reminded me of the little red school house my Aunt Mary used to volunteer at and where I was taken on a field trip when I was in elementary school. As I was looking around this precious chapel, I noticed a pamphlet about praying for children and then I saw a swing set as I glanced out the window. I knew the Lord was getting my attention, so I knew I needed to stay alert!
The GPS routed me a different way from which I came because I was headed to Mills Creek to spend Spring Break with Neil in our camper. As I turned off the main highway, I began recognizing things on the little winding road in the foothills of Tennessee…I realized I was on the exact road where Neil and I went to purchase our camper! As I continued driving, I saw a row of daffodils in front of a tiny house. I knew this was another sign from the Lord. He brought to my recollection a picture I had drawn while I was in church as a child. It was of a house with flowers in a straight line in the front of it. The Lord was showing me how He deposited that desire within me as a child and now I was walking it out as I was following and serving Him! How cool it is to think about that because of my obedience, I was able to see how He was fulfilling my deepest desires and dreams He placed within me as a child?!
