I was on my way to my sorority sister’s house to drop off some books. Cruising along the highway, I knew it would take only about 25 minutes to arrive. I was about 10 minutes away when I realized I had to go to the restroom. I knew I wasn’t going to make it the rest of the ride without stopping, so I pulled over in a plaza where I saw a few businesses. Driving past each storefront, panic began to set in. They all looked closed and nothing else was in sight.

I pulled up to Dunkin’ Donuts and, of course the place was empty. I sat for 30 seconds, contemplating my options. Should I try to see if the restaurant across the way was open? But, again, I didn’t think I was going to make it. I only had one move before an accident happened. I acted fast.

I hopped out of my car and ran to the door… Praise God it was open! An employee came from the back of the store and let me use their facilities.

I thought to myself when I got back in the car about how I was getting ready to walk away before I even tried, just because the shop “looked” closed. I heard a soft voice say, “don’t let what you see make you forget what I said.”

Stand on the promises God gave you, Champion. Faith is the substance of things hoped for-and the evidence of things unseen.

We cannot let what we see or your current circumstances deter you from what God said. If He has whispered a promise to you stand on His word. Hebrews 11:1
