I’m starting to write this at 11:58pm on January 30th and I will be completing it on February 1st shortly after 12:01am. So odd. The end of one month and the beginning of the next. Was’t it just Christmas? And here we are heading into the second month of 2012 already. Time slips by so quickly. I remember hearing my parents comment that time flies faster and faster the older you get. Well, in just a few days I will turn 52. I celebrate my gray hair and each little wrinkle that decides to appear on my once smooth skin.
As I said, time flies by so quickly. I wonder how many blessings God sent my way that I’ve totally missed or even perhaps, dismissed? Today, or now since it’s shortly after midnight I guess it was yesterday, God blessed me- his daughter that was not trusting as much as I should have. He not only blessed me lightly…but he hit the ball out of the park! Then, shortly after the blessings, He blessed my daughter with a job interview that she is totally excited about! God doesn’t do things half way. He longs to bless his children abundantly! The question is, do we long to be blessed?
My lack of trust led to concern which led to worry which led to doubt. Do you know what I’m talking about? Have you been there? It’s not a new place to me…I think I’ve vacationed there many times in the past. Each time I stay there a little less. Growth.
I thank you Lord for the special blessings you send our way when we least expect it. Please help us to vacation in the land of expectation and not in the isle of doubt. Thank you for your faithfulness. You have blessed your daughter and my household today, I mean yesterday. I look forward to your blessings again today! AMEN
