A few weeks ago, my husband leaves for work, I attempt to leave about an hour or so later only to discover that I can't find the car keys. I looked everywhere, it had been a few days since I had driven that car, but I know the keys had to be close by because I drove it home. Anybody who knows me, knows that my life is so overwhelming (or due to the aging process per BW) that I have trouble remembering things sometime. I call my husband and after a few expletive's he drives all the way back home to give me his set of keys.
I get to work and a clear voice tells me to look in the trunk. I back into a parking space very close to another car which leave me no room to get in the trunk and again I hear the voice, so I move the car forward enough to LOOK in the TRUNK.
Needless to say, there hanging in the rubber edging was the car key. Another lesson for me that God truly wants a personal relationship with me...he so into the details of my life that he tells me quite explicitly where the keys are. But I must say the voice was not loud, but it was soft and quiet, and had I not just spent the last hour in traffic quiet and alone, I would have never heard his voice.
What's the moral of the story...well, one if you don't have a relationship with Jesus Christ you should so that you can enjoy the benefits of the trinity and two, quiet time is OHHHH so NECESSARY, especially for overwhelmed MOMS.
