It’s so easy to subconsciously believe God is a thief. I find myself holding His good gifts with my eyes closed. Like WHEN ARE YOU GONNA TAKE THIS FROM ME, God?! But what I’ve BEGUN learning this year (from a goat no less!) is that when God gives me a gift that’s part of our love story forever.
The extraordinarily detailed gift of this little Roxy-girl will ALWAYS be in my history. No matter what happens in the future (a bad sickness, an accident, or her death), she will STILL always be a good gift I received from God. That’s a fact.
So how many good gifts are we too afraid to name? To acknowledge? To hold? Are we closing our eyes with shaky hands afraid to receive? To rejoice?
Oh, how I am learning it is always safe to receive from God, and I can rejoice even when it doesn’t feel safe to do so.
This Was 26, some more about trusting God with overwhelming joy.
