Sometimes we wonder why certain things happen in our lives.
Sometimes we even wonder why God allows specific things to happen to us or our family and friends.
Sometimes we wonder how there can possibly be a blessing to be found anywhere!
Could it be that we are simply looking for what WE expect blessings to look like, rather than waiting to see how GOD sends us blessings?
I know for me, when I was at my lowest a few years ago, I felt as though everything was going wrong in my life, there was nobody there for me and I even felt as though God wasn’t doing anything to help me. Then one day, completely out of the blue, someone who I had previously only known well enough to say hello to, but never really had any conversation with, came to me and reached out to me.
At the time I just thought it was someone unexpected being nice to me, but now looking back on it I truly believe that person was God’s blessing in disguise for me! If it hadn’t been for that person reaching out to me that day and me taking hold of their outstretched hand, I can honestly say I don’t belive I would be the person I am today, or even if I would be here blogging.
Don’t close you’re eyes to God in times of difficultly, as God will be there for you, and He will bless you. Some of those blessings may just be a bit more difficult to spot if they’re in disguise.
Once again as I write this blog post I’m reminded of the song Blessings by Laura Story:
