So, yesterday, like so many other days, I had plans for my lunch break. Two errands to run across town from each other. Of course I started out with a traffic back-up. What?!! Not today. I didn't even have time to eat lunch much less to deal with traffic. Oh well, I made it through utility work and made a quick drop-off and on to my next appointment. But, just as I got back on the street and was cruising along, stopped again, because this time I came across a traffic accident. Ugh! I picked up my phone, almost in a panic, trying to decide a way to squeeze productivity out of this time. Would I be stopped long enough to make a couple quick texts or respond to an email? Is there anyone I have forgotten to return their call? As those thoughts raced through my mind, I was calculating the minutes left of my dwindling hour. But, instead of letting my frustration rise, I just calmed down. I started thinking about how, in the busyness of my life, I rarely have free occasions. I mean totally FREE. Of course I was driving and needed to concentrate on traffic, but I didn't have a baby or toddler in the backseat. I didn't have a teenager beside me. I should totally relax and relish this moment. AHHH. Refreshing. A little nugget of quiet time with God. Time to spend praising Him and glorifying Him. How awesome . As we slowly rolled passed the wreck, I saw that it was just a mere fender bender both parties were standing beside their vehicles okay. I started to think, Why didn't they just pull over into the vacant parking lot instead of blocking a lane of traffic?!! Wait- those were the wrong thoughts, if they had pulled over I would have just kept cruising along. I stopped myself, said a little prayer and thanked God for that teachable moment. A little moment when I just took a needed break from life to give Him glory.....
When is your little glory moments? I would love for you to share them with me below.
