February 16, Today’s thought — Perfect Gifts

Feb 14 002Seedlings be a growin’

Good Morning

For the Father himself loveth you, because ye have loved me,
and have believed that I came out from God. John 16:27

I often see,
shining in the deep blue of the sky just before dawn,
the morning star.
At twilight the sea sometimes reflects
the pale rose and daffodil colors of the sunset.
At night I awaken to find the room flooded
with moonlight reflected from the sea,
from the glass top of my desk by the window,
and from the mirror of the dressing table.
Flying at thirty thousand feet,
I have seen glorious light shining
on the towers and castles of thunderheads.
What gifts are these lights of heaven!
The same Father who gives them
also gives us all other good and perfect things.
It is God’s nature to give.
He can no more “help” giving than He can “help” loving.
We can absolutely count on it
that He will give us everything
that can possibly help us to be and do what He wants.
How can He not do this?
Elisabeth Elliot, Discipline: The Glad Surrender

Look for God’s gifts . . Today
With my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
