This is an older blog that I’m reposting to this, my new blog. Published October 27th, 2010

Today the Gideon’s were on campus passing out Bible. I seen one on my way to the bus and everyone was passing him by. I walked up and asked if I could have one to turn around and give away when the time came. He said yes and then started to ask me about myself. Shortly into the conversation I told him things were about to change at Ohio State. That sparked his interest as he graduated in the 70s from Ohio State and was part of the Jesus Movement that swept campus. He had a very negative outlook saying he felt like we may have sealed our doom. I encouraged him that of the movement starting that would be reminescant of both the Renaissance and the Reformation. This visibly spoke to him, to his heart. He got excited and started asking me questions. We ended up praying together and exchanging information. He wants to be updated on the movement so he can completely back us in prayer. God is good!

Then I was driving around looking for the House of Prayer on campus. I searched for about an hour with no luck. Giving up my search, I decided to stop at Pizza Hut and get breadsticks. When I returned to my car I realized I had locked my keys in the car. Not wanting to stand by my car embarrassed, I started walking down the alley. Within 100 yards from where my car was parked stood the prayer house. I just chuckled. I said, “Thank you God, now please unlock my car.” No one was at the prayer house so I walked back to my car. I got there and thought, I know He didn’t bring me here for them to not be here. I walked back right as someone walked up. I went in and we talked. Then a girl named Sarah walked in and turned to me saying, “Are you the one that locked his keys in his car?” I replied yes as she pulled out a AAA card and called for a free locksmith. God is really good! 🙂

My experience today makes me wonder how often we let our situation make us upset or even worse, we let it bring us to the point of giving up? God got me out of my car to get a different perspective. Maybe what you’re going through is God’s way of showing you a different perspective. Don’t worry, he’ll still clear up the details and unlock your car!

  1. […] On this particular Saturday a couple weeks ago my friend Sheria and I were headed to our friend (and my little Jesus sister) Saria’s graduation party. We stopped by the grocery store to get cards and when we came back to my car we realized I had locked my keys in my car. Sheria and I turned to one another and I said “Every time this has happened Jesus has been delaying me for some reason.” You might have read my blog from October about finding the OSU Prayer House that way (Click Here).
