My friend Elizabeth was asked to lead an evening twenty-somethings Bible study at her church. No one thought to give her a key to the church, and she didn't think to ask for it.
So, after dinner, we pulled up to church without a way to get inside. Instead, we set up camp in the parking lot and began to study the Word of the Lord.
The evening was beautiful. A light breeze, no humidity, and a beautiful sunset. If we had had a key, we would have missed the beautiful day God created for us! It was absolutely perfect for sitting outside.
While we were finishing up our study, the pastor drove up and offered to let us inside. We were all pretty content with where we were. Then he told us they were going to shoot off fireworks from the field next to the church in a few minutes.
If we had been inside, we would have missed the fireworks, the coolest end to Bible study ever.
Sometimes what's seen as a problem, such as a lack of a key, can really be a blessing in disguise.
Are you looking for blessings in disguise?
