The Blessings from Above
I was reading a note that someone wrote and included was this quote..."When God takes something from your grasp, he's not punishing you, but merely opening your hands to receive something better." How many times in our lives have we been so distraught over a lost love, a missed job opportunity or just losing some money that we thought the world was over? I felt the pain of heartbreak and I mean actually felt it in my heart, so I can understand the emotion that these experiences evoke.
Whats' universal about the experience, is that in most cases, something comes along that is more fulfilling than previous. A better job, a better lover or a check that you weren't expecting. We get down in the dumps about something and then end up with something better than what we had. If you've ever been in a relationship and said to yourself, you shouldn't be here and time and time again events occur that prove it to be true, its his way of taking what you attempt to hold on to. I always believe that God has something in store for us, greater than our expectations.
His expectations for us are profound, but you must first open your heart and mind to receive the blessing. I can only hope for the things that I want, but God provides all that I need. If you believe that he has your best interest at heart, what you get is more than enough. So in those moments when you feel you have lost it all remember that through him all things are possible and your blessing is right around the corner.
