Packaged ~ God’s Blessings Await

Packaged

Packaged

God has packaged blessings for us.
Each one meticulously crafted.
The markings of His favor etched all over them;
His love, folded into every detail.

Like a beautiful iris tucked neatly inside its bud,
Every aspect of the things God has planned for us
Await their revealing.
Thoroughly readied for us,
Anticipating our discovery.

It is easy to grow weary or doubtful, when all we see are the frayed edges of our promises.  While we wait, we cannot see what lies ahead and do not know all that God has planned.

Yet He whispers.  ‘Hold on, my beloved.
Don’t give up believing for the good things coming your way.’

Nor have entered into the heart of man
The things which God has prepared for those who love Him”
1 Corinthians 2:9

*In a previous post last year, I wrote about how my neighbor’s irises were lovely, while my beds had scanty blooms. See Brenda’s Irises.
Right after my neck surgery this year, though, God surprised me with a magnificent showing of my irises.  It was a very sweet blessing! 

God has so much in store and loves us more than we will ever know.
Let’s hold on like never before!

Lift Up Your Eyes to Me ~ Snippets of Rain

Snippets of RainLift up your eyes to Me

I am doing things you do not know.
I am working things out in a way you do not expect.
Keep your trust in Me.

“This is the Lord’s doing; it is marvelous in our eyes.”
Psalm 118:23

During times of waiting on God to answer our prayers, let us never forget that God neither slumbers nor sleeps.  While we wait, He is doing marvelous things that our eyes will one day see.

Blessings to all.

*For about two weeks, I have been struggling with markedly increased neck pain and inner ear symptoms.  Double whammy!  I have been working at my nurse job, but trying to minimize computer time while at home.  Bear with me while I await God’s healing touch. 

He is so faithful to strengthen and minister to us during the trials.

God Means What He Says

Did I not say to you that if you would believe you would see the glory of God?
John 11:40
NKJV

Does God ever have to take you back to the drawing board, so to speak?   Those times when you grab a hold of a word of promise from Him, only to find yourself letting go of it when the circumstances convince you otherwise.

When God makes a promise, He doesn’t change His mind, nor does delay render it null and void.  When God promises, He means what He says.

‘Did I not say to you’ is as trustworthy in the promise stage as it is at the fulfillment.  We must believe God’s faithfulness and the certainty of His word.

Blessings in believing!
