“As they talked together, I thought about all the times our “dates” have gotten interrupted, or when the trees have gotten in the way, or when our plans have changed. Most times it would leave me being frustrated- because my focus was always on ME- wanting to make MYSELF happy.” ~Julie Harris

How often are we guilty of missing a blessing by God? We all get busy focused on our desires, goals, and plans. How very often we find ourselves in a situation not so different, it might not be a stroll with our husband or wife, it might be at work or the store or anyone of a number of moments. The same and yet different, different yes and yet the same in that we are interrupted for our intended course.
As Julie has pointed out, “…those things are really blessings in disguise – if only we know what to look for.”
We plan and yet God calls us to live in the moment. To look to Him for what we need now. Not only what we need, we are to see how He wants us to meet the needs of others. Blessings come in so many different ways, are we looking?
Blessings and Peace, ~Robert
