Are we rushing past God’s goodness?
One summer when my son Mark was working at a camp and feeling homesick, I mailed him a special care package to cheer him up.
I was a little disappointed when several days passed, and I hadn’t heard a word from him about the package.
When we called to ask if he’d received it, Mark simply said, “Oh yeah, I did. But I haven’t opened it yet.”
Who gets a gift of love packaged up and sent to them and doesn’t even take time to open it?
In that moment, the Holy Spirit pricked my soul, “Lysa, in all of your rushing, you do this very same thing to me.”
God places gifts of love all throughout our days, things he knows we need. But it’s up to us to slow down enough to even notice.
