God will always bless us, but sometimes it may come in a different form than expected!
Proverbs 1:5 (KJV)
5 A wise man will hear, and will increase learning, and a man of understanding shall attain unto wise counsels:
Sometimes we ask God to show us a sign that He is in our midst; but if we do not take the time to listen and to appreciate what is before us, we will miss out on our blessings. So, listen intently, with an open mind and a loving heart, and you will flourish in Him!
This lovely story was taken in its entirety, from Motivate Us:
The man whispered “God, speak to me”
And a meadowlark sang.
But the man did not hear.
So the man yelled “God speak to me!”
And the thunder rolled across the sky.
But the man did not listen.
The man looked around and said “God let me see you”
And a star shone brightly.
But the man did not notice.
And the man shouted “God show me a miracle”
And a life was born.
But the man did not know.
So, the man cried out in despair.
“Touch me God and let me know that you are here!”
Whereupon God reached down and touched the man.
But the man brushed the butterfly away and walked on.
Don’t miss out on a blessing because it isn’t packaged the way you expect.
