Receive the Gift He IS Giving
I don’t know about you, Friend, but in our neck of the woods, we’ve been enjoying beautiful snow for the last three days. It had been forecasted for about a week, but in South Carolina, you learn not to take these kinds of forecasts too seriously. Too many “blizzards” have turned out being just a few silly flurries.
But this past weekend was one of those rare times when the snow actually came. Friday night brought a beautiful blanket of five to six inches… and with it, the chance to receive a surprise gift from God.
I had to choose whether or not I would receive His gift, though. Before the snow came, our weekend held slightly different plans. But I’m learning that the Lord’s best surprises often come in the form of “changed plans.” So often, I’m coming to think of them as holy rearrangements.
In the video below, I’m sharing for a few quick minutes about how this weekend was a fresh opportunity to see things through the Holy Spirit’s lens, a fresh chance to choose quiet surrender and open hands. Ya know, only open hands are positioned to receive the better thing He’s giving. And His gifts always bring joy!
