(I should mention that this is one of those, non-crafty...once in a while posts. Craftiness will return tomorrow!)
Last night I was at a Steven Curtis Chapman concert, and it was wonderful. His music is great, but it was the things he had to say that impacted me more. It was through him that I was reminded of something so important.
I was reminded that all that we have is from God.
Ok, so I knew that. I know that. All the time I know that. But it gets better.
All that we have is from God, because He has entrusted us with it. Everything. He has given us everything we have and it is up to us to use it wisely. And although I often think of this idea in terms of stuff (God has given us the things and $$$ we have, so we should give back to Him)...another thing came to mind last night.
Circumstances. (for lack of a better word)
You see, I'm not married. I want to be, and sometimes I have a difficult time when I think about the possibility of never getting married. But I realized something.
My singleness has been entrusted to me by God.
It may not last forever, but right now, I need to treasure it, and use it wisely, and make the best of it, and offer it to God. Whoa. I'm still swimming in this idea.
What has God entrusted you with? What is the thing that you never thought of as being a gift from Him?
