And this is why when God tells me something that doesn’t make sense, I just go ahead and do it.
A Grubby Swan
I went to the grocery store today. While I was there, I always check the clearance section for random deals. I passed this particular stuffed toy swan in the grocery store but something (thank you Jesus) told me to go back and just buy it. It was on clearance for $1 because someone had spilled food on it and stepped on it, so it looked gross.
Did I Just Ruin My Freezer?
When I went home I noticed that my chest freezer had some wet spots. I figured maybe I didn’t close the lid well, even though I keep my Excalibur dehydrator on top (it’s big and should weigh down the lid.)
I repacked the freezer to make sure the lid fit tight and went about my other chores, which included washing this toy swan today. It was dirty so I washed it in the sink & went to put it in my dehydrator to dry.
Remember, my dehydrator lives on top of my chest freezer.
I plugged it in.
It didn’t turn on.
I plugged my dehydrator into another outlet. It works.
Then it clicked in my mind. This is why there were wet spots in the freezer – the outlet wasn’t working.
If it wasn’t for this grubby $1 swan toy that I found, I would have had no reason to check my chest freezer and would have lost all of that food due to a broken outlet.
God Works In Mysterious Ways
Here is the toy swan. It’s still wet.
I have no kids and have no reason to buy this toy, especially one that was so dirty, but when God puts something on my heart, I know that there is a reason!
And if you’re wondering, the swan has a tag with her name, “Gracie.”
God’s grace is sufficient for me!
