It was a cold and windy Friday afternoon in the town of Frankfurt. The white church with it's steeple was beckoning to me and I was delighted to find the church doors open so that I could pray. It was warm inside the church and so very quiet. I played the piano for a few minutes, said some prayers and read a scripture from the large Bible resting on the pulpit.
Afterwards I wandered downstairs where I found a dining area and kitchen. There was also a little library with several spiritual books written about faith and hope. It was nice to sit down and read some of the spiritual books. Before heading back upstairs I noticed a huge basket of chocolates. There were hundreds of pieces of gold and silver wrapped chocolates inside that basket with a scripture that read:
May the GOD of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing; so that by the power of the Holy Spirit you may abound in hope.
Stumbling across that idyllic church in a town I had never been to before was truly a blessing. I had been feeling so cold and lonely but GOD changed all that by letting me enter his church and finding love and peace during moments that I really needed that feeling of "faith."
In moments of doubt how wonderful it is to find "the church" doors open.
