God's Blessings Flow

It’s interesting. This is the first Christmas where I just couldn’t figure out something I wanted. As Christmas drew near, I decided that was a good thing (although my husband may not agree as he struggled to know what to get me!) I decided that because there wasn’t something I HAD to have – that there was no way I would be disappointed! Everything would be a pleasure, a treasure to enjoy and a delight to my heart.

The week before Christmas God sent me some unexpected blessings.

I’ve always wanted those. I’ve heard of other people getting them but could never really say I’d been the recipient before.

A gal contacted me about reviewing a piece of jewelry from her store on my blog. She said I could keep the piece – no strings attached. And so I got to pick out this stunning necklace from LuShae Jewelry worth about $70! Then, I logged onto my “Fishful Thinking” account as I’m an ambassador for them. For the first time ever, I found a message in my inbox and it said that I had won the random drawing for a gift card! So they sent me a $50 gift card to Target!

To top it all, my sister sent me a Beth Moore devotional in our box of Christmas presents “just because” AND I won a Tricia Goyer book on another blog! Can you believe it? All in one week.

I got tears in my eyes, literally. Because I felt loved. I felt like these were little encouraging love gifts from God. Don’t we all need those some times? And I was so thankful. Thankful for unexpected blessings that came to me. I don’t know why they all came at that one chosen time – but they did. And I felt humbled, and loved. I felt like God was sending me a personal message of encouragement and it went straight to my heart.

There are no coincidences. I don’t believe that anymore. Sometimes we just need to look a little deeper and harder to see where our gifts truly come from – and why.
