Right Where I Belong

For the past few weeks (more so closer to the past month or so) I've seen signs everywhere. I know they're meant for me...sometimes you just know. I won't go into great detail about what these signs are. I'm just not quite ready to let go of that type of information yet. Today however, was no exception. It might have started off as just a normal Sunday- get up, get ready, and head to church. I had to keep the nursery this morning, but when I was finally able to head to the service, I entered the fellowship hall where it's held and heard a specific song (also one of my signs). I sat down to save seats for my friends who would be there shortly. The sermon series we've started this week is entitled "Why." Throughout the next 3 weeks we'll be talking about why God allows bad things to happen to good people, why life throws you curveballs you just weren't expecting, etc. Today really hit home. It brought up some painful memories, but ones that were needed in order to hear what God really needed me to this morning. I had chill bumps the entire service. Normally I'd try to calm these, but for today, I really just didn't mind. I then noticed that the very person sitting in front of me was someone that although I don't talk to very often, was someone who I felt needed me this morning. As I sat behind her, I felt her pain. We both shared the same thoughts without making eye contact. It's just one of those things you just know. I realize to someone who doesn't know me very well or even if you do, this all might not make a bit of sense or matter to anyone, but me but for today, I felt like I was right where I belonged..
