Here are three packages of joy that God has given me in the last week. I hope they encourage you to keep looking out for them in your life. The funny thing about God is even if your not paying attention, He is still flinging love and gifts to you. Open your eyes.
Religious truth is captive in a small number of little manuscripts, which guard the common treasures instead of expanding them. Let us break the seal which binds these holy things; let us give wings to truth that it may fly with the Word, no longer prepared at vast expense, but multitudes everlastingly by a machine which never wearies – to every soul who enters life. (Quoted in Mathematics: Is God Silent? By James Nickel- did you think you could get something like that out of a maths books? 😀 )
Before that, 300 bibles had been printed and sold to commoners for the first time. The birth of the printed word, and it was the Word of God… doesn’t that make you want to run out and tell someone about Jesus!?
Some things that comforts me…
For sin shall not have dominion over you, for you are not under law, but under grace. – Romans 6:14
Courage is fear that has said its prayers. – Dorothy Bernard.
And a quote that makes me open my eyes for those joyous packages:
All the things in this world are gifts and signs of God’s love to us. The whole world is a love letter from God. – Peter Kreeft
A defining moment this week…
Living out James 5:16 (Confess your trespasses to one another, and pray for one another, that you may be healed. The effective, fervent prayer of a righteous man avails much. ) And consequently having the best worship time ever.
Soli Deo Gloria,
