Daily in Your Presence - Aug. 31

Day 244


"How much more will your Father in heaven

give good gifts to those who ask him!"

Matthew 7:11

My child, I get so excited thinking up all the surprises I'd like to send your way. Gifts. Wonderful blessings to enrich your life. There's so much I want to do for and through you. But there's a catch. You limit Me, My child. Come, sit a while, and tell Me your heart's desires. You have not because you do not ask. Trust Me to take every desire and wrap it in the way I know will bless your life the most. Wait until you see what I've planned for you today.

Whatever You give, Lord, is good and perfect. You wrap each gift with tenderness, adorn it with love, and tie it up with ribbons of blessing that fill my days with heaven's best. Nothing that comes from Your hand is a mistake. You are the giver of good gifts. And I receive You gladly.


The best things in life are found in Jesus.
