Greater than the desire for food, thirst quenching water, appealing embrace of true love…. is the need for GOD.
There is no substitute for the love of God. God holds the bullet back from the gun on your head, keeps that overdose from being your last hit, keeps your lights on when you know you didn’t pay the bill… God gets you a job you didn’t deserve, a home you don’t have the credit for, a car you didn’t think you could keep gas in. God put that dinner on your table, the smile on your child’s face…. Allowed you to be five minutes from a life threatening crash, kept your boss off your back when you couldn’t handle any more pressure.
GOD did this and more, and if we would simply choose to see God in all the good, our life would be full of joy, thanksgiving, prosperity, life, vibrancy, and pleasure.
God keeps you and I everyday, it’s time to say thank you, and from this moment on… choose to see God in the midst of great and watch life before you blossom. Selah

One of the greatest challenges in being “great” is developing patients. Patients to keep learning, keep pressing, keep smiling, keep being kind, to keep being hopeful even when things look to be going opposite of your way. Patients is one of the fruits of the spirit which is love.
True love says that “For God so loved the world that He gave” so giving is the personality of God and the personality of love. Why is it important to know this??? Because if you are in a relationship with God, then you must understand that love makes you wait because love perfects your gift before giving it to you.
For example, I can run to Walgreens and pick up any card and any gift, put it in a random bag and give my husband the present. But… because I love him, I go to the store look for a gift that would make him smile. I take the time to go up and down each aisle until I find something he would love and enjoy. Lastly, I choose a bag to wrap this gift into something that makes the present shine. If I love my husband enough to do all of this, how much do you think God loves us.
Yes, God wants us to have what we need and desire, but He doesn’t want to give it to us haphazardly. God takes His time, chooses the best gift with the best wrapping delivered in the best time so that it’s not only appreciated but cherished. Today, exercise patients and watch God bless you with a gift greater than you ever expected.
