an observation

every day IS truly a gift from God and every person God allows into my life is also truly a gift from my Heavenly Father.  This being said, there are some days and there are some people that I wish came complete with a gift receipt so that I could return or exchange these particular gifts.   I guess that’s where my faith and trust get put to the test  (a test I’m still taking, by the way)

“Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows.”  (James 1:17)

” ‘For I know the plans I have for you,’ declares the Lord, ‘plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.’ ”  (Jeremiah 29:11)

“And we know that in all things God works for the good of those who love Him, who have been called according to His purpose.”  (Romans 8:28)

“And my God will meet all your needs according to His glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”  (Philippians 4:19)

maybe God doesn’t give out gift receipts with His gifts because He doesn’t want me to use them and in so doing to miss any of what He will use to grow me into the person He created me to be in Christ  . . .

” . . . though now for a while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials.  These have come so that your faith — of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire — may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.”  (1 Peter 1:6-7)

sincerely,         Grace Day
