You can guess what happened. They were closed. However, not only were they closed, they permanently ceased to be a business. They left a note saying large box stores had closed them down.
As I drove away, I asked myself why I didn't listen to that voice inside of me. I don't know if I would have found out they were closed permanently, but I may have discovered they were not open. I could have saved 45 minutes of driving or so.
Why was I so mule headed? Why was I so stubborn? I yearn to listen to God's small still voice, and I didn't even listen to something so simple. I have so much to learn. How many other times have I stubbornly resisted to listen to that still small voice?
You may wonder if that was God speaking. I can't stake my life it was. But that inner voice specifically stated I should call. I, for whatever reason, refused. Don't follow my example, listen the first time.
