..... O Lord, you are a great and awesome God! You always fulfill your covenant and keep your promises of unfailing love to those who love you and obey your commandments.
Last night, the hubs and I went Christmas shopping for our three girls. We were looking around, comparing things to their list, and picked out things that went beyond what they had asked for (well, not *that* far beyond..... it was the same things, but a bit of an upgrade from what they wanted.)
I was thinking last night in the car how God is. He tells us no sometimes when we ask for things, like we tell our kids. Sometimes we tell them no because what they want is too dangerous. Sometimes it is because it costs too much money (ok, not a problem for God). And sometimes we tell them no because we know that we have something more special in store for them. Something they could never even imagine.
God is like that for us. If he told us yes to everything we wanted, we would miss everything special He had for us. And truthfully, He's... you know... God. His ideas are much more advanced and awesome than ours. I'd much rather go with God's infinite ideas than my human ones :)
The Lord is a great and awesome God! He will bless you in ways you have never imagined... and even some ways you won't ever see.
God Bless You and Have a Great Sunday :)
