A NEW WEEK
This week is a week of promise.....this week is a new week of praying for the work of this ministry. This week holds in it's hands gifts from God.
Friends I have here in Florida, friends in other states, and friends in Uganda. I am looking forward to seeing what God will do with this week, whose lives He will touch, what gifts and blessings He will provide to us. He always does provide.....sometimes we're so busy looking for the gifts and blessings that we miss them. I think it is because we are looking too hard, looking in the wrong places, or have put God in a box, expecting that He somehow is limited to blessing us only in the ways our minds or hearts can comprehend......that is our mistake.
Am I rambling? I don't think so......you see, God's blessings often go unnoticed, unappreciated, or unseen.....life itself is a gift, a blessing, each breath we take, each morsel of food we put in our mouths. I have friends in Uganda who have so very little of what we in America would call blessings......but they don't think so. They have far more keen spiritual eyes than we do. They see the blessings that we often overlook. I pray that God will help me see those often overlooked blessings in my life, and that He will use me as a blessing to others.
So.....what rich blessings await us this week? I know there will be plenty!!
