Well I have counted more than 100 gifts these past two months! It is now becoming like second nature to see God working. Wow!! What a wonderful habit to form.
I pray that those of you who read my blog will try your hand at counting gifts. It is really easy to do. I use a cheap pocket calendar where I write the gifts I see each day. And I leave it on the counter in my kitchen so that I remember to be looking. Also, I use Ann Voskamp’s prompts if I feel like I am not seeing Him move. And ya know what’s funny? When I think I have stopped seeing new things is when I notice Him moving the most.
And one other thing I should point out– gifts aren’t always the easy, happy things. Gifts are ways God is moving. And sometimes, He moves in ways that hurt. But He is still using these things in my life to work good in my life, my family and those around me.
Keep looking for Him!
