I’ve found A Secret
A little boy opened the old family Bible with fascination. He looked at the old pages carefully as he turned them.
Then something fell out of the Bible and he picked it up and looked at it closely.
It was an old leaf from a tree that had been pressed in between the pages.
“Mommy look what I have found,” the boy called out.
“What have you got there dear?” his mother asked.
With astonishment in the young boy’s voice, he answered: “I’ve just found Adam’s clothes!”
As I have gotten more mature (don’t you love that word) I assumed I would be wiser, more disciplined, and have more time. You know having, “All my ducks in a row.” Which if you think about it is not reality.
Some day’s life does not go the way I want it too. I can write lists, make my plans and try to get some sense of order, yet life does not stop because I have a bad day. Have you ever felt like that?
I am thankful that as each new day comes, I can choose to find something to be thankful for. I am learning how to find joy in the moments. This is a lifelong journey, and a fast learner I am not.
Not because my life is perfect, but because I have a friend who loves me through the circumstances of my life. He is the shield who blocks the sting and protects me in his perfect will. Nothing touches me that does not go through the cross first.
Although I will always have my share of bad hair days, bags under my eyes, blow my diet and lose my temper. I am safe and secure in the knowledge that God’s love and forgiveness are constant, unconditional and forever. He is my Friend, He is enough.©
How precious is your unfailing love, O God! All humanity finds shelter in the shadow of your wings. Psalm 36:7
