Unwrapping God’s Gifts of Love


Dear Jesus,

Sometimes a gloom overtakes my mind,
And each day becomes a trudging,
Not a joyous day to be alive.

You give me each day
As a newly wrapped gift
To be opened and enjoyed.

Lord, please help me
To treat each day as a gift,
Not as a drudgery.

Please help me to rejoice
In Your gifts of each day
And each promise You give.


My Beloved Child,

Yes, each day I give you
Is a gift to be cherished,
More time to fulfill the purpose
I have for you on this earth,
The purpose especially meant
For you and no one else.
Just thank Me
Even when you don’t feel it,
And dance even when your heart is heavy.

And remember always
I suffered so much more,
I even died for you,
I joyfully carried out
The will of My Father
With all My heart,
Because I love you so much,
And that gift of love
Is for you, My cherished one.

“Sometimes it’s hard to keep believing in what you can’t see
That everything happens for a reason even the worst life brings
If you’re reaching for an answer and you don’t know what to pray
Just open up the pages, let His Word be your strength

And hold on to the promises (hold tight)
Hold on to the promises (all right)
Jesus is alive, so hold tight
Hold on to the promises”

by Mercy Me

“When life won’t play along
And right keeps going wrong
And I can’t seem to find my way
I know where I am found
So I won’t let it drag me down
Oh, I’ll keep dancing anyway”

Praying our hearts will open up the Precious Gift of Jesus’ Love!

GOD is Big Enough and You Have a Purpose

he-handpicked-you_500Dear Readers,

My hubby and I will be on vacation next week, so I will not be posting, answering comments, or responding to emails. I hope to have a rest away from the computer, and above all, a much-needed soul rest as I soak up God’s wonders of creation.

I will leave you with these two graphics/messages to ponder over. I know it’s not easy, especially when troubles within and without bombard us and beat us up, but I hope you can truly believe that God is big enough and there is a purpose in your being here. Always remember you’re still thought about much more than you know. 🙂 I hope you have a week of joy in Jesus Who loves you so, so much that He even died for you.
