We passed this little white church on our way back from the beach in March. We stumbled upon it, as we took back roads, looking for a way out of the spring break traffic on the interstate. You can’t really tell from the picture but it was nestled in a wooded area, just around a curve. I was driving and said to Jeff “please get a picture for the blog!” I absolutely love little white churches. Simple yet beautiful structures with a steeple…Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place. It was a highlight among the loooong way home, from a great trip. You know how that last day of vacay …when you are just ready to get home and it seems you will never get there? Well, add a few hours to that and there you have spring break back from the beach.
Life can be like this at times. You have prayed, the trials get harder, you keep praying, there’s some progress, pray more, breakthrough, more prayer and then all of sudden God places a treasure right there in your path. It almost doesn’t seem real. It was such a long journey and it was off the beaten path but right in the middle of nowhere you realize….God answered your prayer. There is the treasure. Savor it. Be in the present moment and believe it. God answers prayer. Always on time, His time. Surely the presence of the Lord is in this place. Simple and beautiful. Thank you, Lord Jesus, you are to be praised!
