Gifts from God

Did you know that when you woke up this morning, that was a gift from God? There are many people who did not wake up this morning.

Did you know that every single breath you take is a gift from God? That’s millions of gifts each day, just by breathing.

Did you know that hearing your son or daughter whine at you for the umpteenth time is a gift from God? There are thousands upon thousands of parents out there that would give anything to hear their child’s voice one more time.

Did you know that your boss piling on your workload was a gift from God? There are many people that have been unemployed and searching for work for months.

Your spouse may not have remembered to run that errand that you have bugged them to do numerous times, but took the time to say, “I love you”, before you parted ways this morning. Did you know that too, is a gift from God? Do you realize that someone somewhere just lost their spouse to an unforeseen accident and they will not get to say “I’m sorry for ignoring you this morning. I love you so much.”

We need to stop wasting so much time worrying about all the things we don’t have and focus on all the gifts and blessings that we DO have.

Every day we wake up means God has more in store for us to experience, to do, to share, to teach, to learn, to love. We are all works in progress and God, our Heavenly Father, is our artist.

But He cannot completely mold and shape us until we open our hearts to Him and recognize and accept each of these gifts that He lays upon us. Consider opening your heart to God today. Find out what He has in store for you.

“The Lord is a refuge for the oppressed, a stronghold in times of trouble. Those who know Your name will trust in You, for You, Lord, have never forsaken those who seek You.” (Psalm 9:9-10 NIV)

God Bless You!
