Daddy can be so cool sometimes with His intentionality.
This summer I wanted to read “The Circle Maker: Praying Circles Around Your Biggest Dreams and Greatest Fears” by Mark Batterson. I didn’t have a copy of it but I did manage to get a hold of the audiobook and started listening to it. However, while it was awesome to be able to listen to the book, I kept having to replay chapters because I would tend to zone out. I finally determined within myself that I would HAVE to just buy the book.
Last week, Books-A-Million had their Penny-A-Page promotion, and a friend and I stood in line for three hours so we could get the books we wanted. While in line, I noticed “Boundaries” by John Townsend and picked it up, as well! I was so excited about both of these books because I’d been wanting them for so long! Unfortunately, after three and a half hours of standing in line, I had to face the sad truth that those books were not going to be bought. My friend and I had somewhere else to be, and the line was moving too slowly. I decided against buying either book.
BUT Because I have a GREAT dad who cares about the things that I care about….
This past Sunday I decided I would just break down, spend the money and buy “The Circle Maker” full price. To my surprise, when I went online to buy it, it was on sale for $5!! Plus, because Lifeway Christian Bookstore price matches, I didn’t have to wait on it to come in the mail. So, just in time for 21 Days of Prayer at church, I finally got my hands on a physical copy of “The Circle Maker.”
A few weeks later, I was in a thrift store with my mom, and found a brand new copy of “Boundaries” for $0.49!
Want to know the coolest part? Although BAM had an AMAZING sale that day, had I bought both of those books at the BAM sale, it would have been $6.10, but finding them separately, I paid $5.98 for both! So, I still managed to even save a little!
Even in the small things, He’s SO GOOD!
