3 Gifts Found

I'm jumping in a little bit late to the Joy Dare for March...but I'm jumping nontheless:)

I love watching for the gifts (because they keep on coming), accepting the gifts and then naming the gifts. Sometimes, though, it doesn't actually make it to the paper or the blog list. That's ok, course.

Thankful hearts have been around much longer than Blogs and pens-

He is our All Knowing God.

But my heart at the moment is feeling a bit “queasy”. As I write this, my son is in the "other room" tossin' his cookies. I have a feeling our cookies are next. One down...four to go.

I won't hold this against my precious granddaughter whose been tossin' all week, poor thing!

What do I add to my list today?

Today we are to list 3 Gifts Found:

Sometimes it’s not so clear to see, but I think I’ve found it.

1. Thank you, Lord, that You have found the monster making war with my son’s insides and YOU are getting it out!

There's always something warring with our insides, isn't there?

2. How amazing you are that You have found a way to still allow us to love and care for each other when we get sick because we "seem" to get sick one at a time!

There’s always someone there to rub the back and say,

“It will go away soon.”

3. So eternally thankful that You have found me. I was lost, but You came to seek and save that which was lost. (Luke 19:10)

In the very real spiritual world, Satan is that monster. He has indeed declared war against God and His children and he doesn’t back down easily. Oh sure, sometimes he “upsets” the balance, but he cannot win.

The victory has already been won and it is Christ’s. (1 Cor. 15:57)

May we trust in God’s absolute and unfailing love. He is control of all things and may we hear Him and trust Him when He rubs our backs and says,

“It will go away soon.”

  1. My dear, it will indeed go away soon. I love your conviction that the enemy CANNOT win. Will be praying for your and your family. We are all one big Army of God. Be blessed and sending a comforting hug!


  2. oh, hoping you are all feeling better soon!!

  3. Thank you so much, ladies! I did finally "get it" as well. It has been a strange day, indeed--seems like I've been cut off from the world! Sometimes I dream of being able to stay in bed all day, but not like this!
    His mercies are new every morning, can't wait for it!


Thanks for reading my words! I'd love to hear from you!
