Hello everyone! I hope you had a good day! My day was full of surprises or should I say...blessings from above; that definitely helped me to feel the closeness of God's presence.
This morning, I started out my day...spending time with God, in the 32nd chapter, of the book of Psalms. The verse that really stood out and actually became a part of my day, was verse 10, which says... "Many are the woes of the wicked, but the Lord’s unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him."
It seems that since I took last week off with God, I haven't been the same...which is good! In fact, I have begun to see His love step in and work on my behalf...even more than before. The verse above is so true..."the Lord's unfailing love surrounds the one who trusts in him." I don't know about you but I need God's love to step in and care for me everyday. I have come to truly see; that no matter what we do in life...we all need God's love!
By the way...before I forget...today, I had the most unexpected surprise! This morning I had to go and do my grocery shopping and as I finished my time with God, I had asked Him to be with us; but to also give us His best and today He gave me a sample of His best.
While shopping, I had decided to get our Thanksgiving turkey and put it in the freezer, since they were on sale. Little did I know; that I would end up getting my turkey for free. As the man rang up all of my groceries; he turned to me and said that we may qualify for a free turkey. I couldn't believe it! Come to find out; they were having a special...and with $100 worth of groceries; you get a free turkey.
As I stood at the check out, I knew that I hadn't had only around $80 - $90 worth of groceries; so I was kind of puzzled; but then he said to me... "we are going to count the original cost of the turkey with your groceries, which would put your total amount of groceries over $100. I just stood there in amazement. To some, they probably wouldn't have seen it the way I did; but I definitely knew in my heart; that this was a blessing...something out of the ordinary from God and He was truly giving us His best.
You know what? God is longing so much to bless His children with His best! He's just waiting for us to anticipate it and accept it, as His gift of love to us. I just love it, when God steps into a circumstance in my life and makes His power known to me!
What a great day it's been! I've truly experienced God, in a very real way...and I got me a free turkey! All I can say is thank you Lord, for all you've done for me today!
Well...soon it will be time to collapse from a busy day and have a quiet talk with God. My prayer for you; is that you too will long for God's best and that you will truly anticipate all He wants to do, as a means of showing His true love for you!
Take care & blessings on your day!
It's Always & Only Because of Him...
