Lost And Found

“What you lost –was just a Place Holder for what God is releasing!” Niki Walker Brown

Hallelujah! How many of you have “lost” something significant during your lifetime? I would venture to guess that everyone reading this post has lost at least one significant item during their lifetime. I know I have. And if I would think about the situation, I would likely find the “silver lining.”

My immediate thought of what I initially considered a loss is what brought me from East Norriton, PA to New Jersey in May, 1993. When I came to New Jersey, I was homeless with a P.O. Box as my address. My material items were in storage. It was one of the lowest points in my lifetime. Unknown to me at the time, that instance was also the bridge that eventually led me to my home church, Bethany Baptist Church, pastored by Bishop David G. Evans.

When I look back over my life to consider the high point or the most significant point in my life, I think of May 15, 1994. That was the 3rd Sunday in May. I attended the 8:00 service at Bethany Baptist Church in Somerdale, New Jersey. The Sanctuary Choir was singing. I joined the church on May 15, 1994. For the first time in years, I was home. Through Jesus Christ, Bishop Evans spoke directly to my soul.

Moving me out of a familiar location and planting me in unfamiliar surroundings was my place holder. It was my reminder that all things work together for those who love the Lord (Romans 8:28). What is your place holder?
