"Because your lovingkindness is better than life, my lips will praise You. Thus I will bless You while I live. I will lifet up my hands in Your name."
- Psalms 63:3-4
I've had an amazing week, spiritually speaking. Everyday I've been blessed, and God has been speaking to me in a very special way. Last week I blogged about not feeling close to God, and God used that post to reawaken my spiritual life. It's been a WONDERFUL week, and I'm excited about getting to know Jesus better.
Here's an example of what my week's been like:
I sold one of my BlackBerrys on Ebay for $250. I sent it off to the address and the person paid right away. However I got an email from him this week saying that he hasn't received the phone and that his tracking number says it was mailed to the wrong address. Now on my receipt from the post office, it says it was sent to the correct address, so I'm not sure what the mixup was. Anyway, I was feeling really down a bout the whole thing because I wanted to give that money to my brother who's away at school.
Well I started praying that night and put my situation in God's hands. Sounds crazy, but while I was praying, I remembered that I had gotten a rebate check from Sprint (from another BlackBerry I'd bought...I love those phones =) I hadn't seen the check in a while, so I started looking around my room. But I kept hearing that I should check the trash. I ignored it, because there was no way I could have thrown something like that away. I kept looking in my room, but the feeling kept getting stronger that I should check the trash. So I went in the kitchen and checked the garbage, and sure enough...there was that rebate check, protected from the garbage by the envelope it came in.
Needless to say...I'm not really worried about my Ebay transaction. God is taking care of me, just like He always has.
I don't even have anything else to say! My heart is full =)
