Today’s thought – In All Circumstances

Good Morning

I Thessalonians 5:16-18
Rejoice evermore.
Pray without ceasing.
In every thing give thanks:
for this is the will of God in Christ Jesus
concerning you

A farmer who lived near London during World War II
wrote to the Scripture Gift Mission requesting prayer
that no bombs would fall on his small farm.
He enclosed a five-shilling offering.
He explained that his harvest had been awful,
and he didn’t have enough money
to bring water for the parched crops.
He could not afford another setback without losing his farm.
The secretary of the mission wrote back
and said he could not ask that his farm be spared
but instead would bray that God’s will would be done.

Soon afterward the largest bomb in the German arsenal
hit the man’s farm.
The impact was so big that it unearthed a spring.
The spring not only amply watered his farm,
but also enabled him to share water with his neighbors.
And the next year,
he enjoyed an abundant harvest.
He sent a fifty-pound check
to the mission as a thanksgiving offering.
from A Daybook of Grace, Fall River Press

Thank God for unexpected blessings. . . Today
with my prayers, desiring yours, Leslie
