The Gift

"What gift has God given you recently"?

You know, that's a really hard question because I can't pin it down to just one thing. He's done so much over the past months.

God has provided an apartment for us. He's opened doors for my book to be published. He's allowing me to share my testimony with more people.

God has provided the opportunity for both of my children to be in college pursuing the careers they both desire.

God has blessed me with a husband who listens, understands, and pushes me out of my comfort zone when necessary.

But those are things, circumstances, outcomes. Good things. Answers to prayer and cries of the heart. Some are big, huge, and wonderful. Others are small, private, and precious.

Yet, there is something even better. I think the gift God has given me most recently is a desire for more of HIM!

Taking the time to read His word. Spending time with Him in worship and prayer. Learning more about His character.

My faith is deepened by seeking God. And that is a true gift. The biggest gift, actually, which God gives to us.

Himself.
