I visited my Mom to day in the nursing home. Got a lot of work done, replacing clothing, cleaning closet and drawers, etc. Brought her a few bits of bling for Valentine’s day including one fun piece of costume jewelry– a stretch ring with a huge faux “diamond”. She loved the attention she got with that thing!
When we got done cleaning we rolled in Ken’s gift – a little wooden chest on wheels. Mom’s response was priceless. She said, “I’ve been praying and praying for some things, and here you bring things that are better than what I was asking for – and something I didn’t even know to ask for.”
Isn’t that just like the Lord!
We think we know what we need (and want) and yet He gives us far more than we can ask for or even think of!
Here is how The Message describes it…
Ephesians 3:20 God can do anything, you know—far more than you could ever imagine or guess or request in your wildest dreams!
