I video chat often with one of my best friends who lives several states away. She recently sent me a video message to report that she was reluctantly starting her studying process in preparation for taking a test for work. She held up her study book as proof. It was bright yellow. Then she realized she was wearing bright yellow, too. She inadvertently matched her study book. It was quite funny. It reminded me a bit of the man in the yellow hat in the Curious George series.
A couple hours after seeing her message, I walked the aisles of a grocery store and began to notice so many bright yellow items. One end cap was entirely filled with bright yellow packaging. At first, I chuckled to myself. Then I realized I could use bright yellow as a prayer prompt in the next few weeks leading up to my friend’s test.
Later that evening, I went to the high school track for my evening walk. Our school colors are purple and…bright yellow. Our football field goal posts are yellow, and the fence that surrounds the field is topped with bright yellow fence guard. Which meant my entire walk time was a prayer prompt!
I laughed and sent my friend a video message. Then I spent the remainder of my walk praying for her and for others.
God is creative in how he brings things to our minds and hearts, and I am grateful he makes me smile (and laugh) so often.
