Several weeks ago, I showed up at work on a Monday feeling sort of down. It was a gray day and things had not been terrible, but they also hadn’t been awesome. It was just a hard stretch of road I was on at the time and I had a moment of questioning in my car that morning: do You really see me here, God?
When I got to work I found a card in my box with a gift inside and a Starbucks card (the ultimate gift!) The money was a great blessing, the Starbucks card was a great treat, but the card was the real treasure. It said: we just want you to know that you’re loved. Since there was no signature, I knew it was straight from God Himself – a note to remind me on a hard day that He still saw, still knew, still cared, still loved. He is so good that way and I’m amazed at the way people hear and respond to Him.
Every week for the next several weeks, a new card was in my box with a gift. Every week, it was a crystal clear reminder that we are intimately loved by the God who has infinite resources.
I don’t know who gave those beautiful cards and gifts, but I hope you read my blog because I want you to know how you have been the hands and handwriting of Jesus for us these past few weeks. Thank you is small here on earth, but I believe that our words reverberate in heaven and I know for sure that our good and true Father will pay you back in about a million ways.
Thank you. We are blessed.
