Precious Gifts Keep Giving
This morning I sat down to have some quiet time with my Lord. You see it's been a while, and I've missed Him dearly even though He has been right here with me all the time. I wanted to document this particular quiet time because it did mean a lot to me, & I can't wait till tomorrow:
Matthew 14:17-18(amp) They said to Him, We have NOTHING here but these 5 loaves and 2 fish. He said, Bring them here TO ME... Verse 20 And they all ate and were satisfied. And they picked up 12 small hand baskets full of the broken pieces left over.
I have been spending so much wasted time lately, perhaps because school is on break, I am jobless in Japan, and am in a waiting period for a baby. So there are nights where I stay up till 1am doing...nothing, looking up baby items to pick out because I'm a planner by nature, but truly wasting time. So this morning I decided to bring Jesus my "nothing" my boredom, my impatience, and my heart. Thankfully He doesn't leave us empty handed when we go to His throne-I got baskets of left over goodies from my nothing: A scripture verse that has real life application, a story from my devotional that will forever be etched on my heart, and the desire to do it again; To give Him everything that I have even if to me, it is nothing. This was a wonderful Christmas gift that will continue to give each morning as I sit at the Throne of my Jesus-My God!
