Sometimes, “THANK YOU” just doesn’t seem to be enough.
Very recently, I found myself responding to people with “THANK YOU! You are a God-send.” And not that I haven’t thought of numerous people, experiences, & blessings in the past, as each one being sent from God, but I really felt the revelation of it, for such a time as this.
So who or what is it that qualifies as one sent by God in my book? I first have to take a step back and remember when…
Things can’t get any worse; I can’t go any lower, have so much less, or be any more alone; where the heart has cried “no more” & “Lord, I have reached ‘The End’ of me”… that “God sends”!
At just the right time, God sends life, hope, provision, comfort, love, & a life-boat… and often through His people. And it is these that I call “God-sends”. And “no” they are not all “Christians”. Matter-of-fact, fewer then expected are, but I am thankful just the same.
I’m not sure if any of the God-sends in my life, or even those of very recent, know exactly how much their acts [often random] of kindness has done for me, but I do know this- sometimes “THANK YOU” just doesn’t seem to be enough, sent from me to you.
And as much as I appreciate you for all you have done for me, it is so much more that I appreciate the HIM who sent you. It is often & daily that I “Thank God!” for the little & big.
If I had not experienced the worst of times, I would not have felt ‘His best’ of times. If I had not gone so low and experienced the depths, I would not have chosen to seek His heights. If I had not lived with less, I would never have come to see [& appreciate] the more.
It is when I feel the most alone, that His Words speak volumes & His embrace the greatest. It is when my heart is the most broken & can take not one more strike, that my cries are filled with laughter & my heart blessed… up-close and tight.
It’s when I’ve reached the very end of me, when He shows UP His peace & rest! And when I cry here, this side of Heaven, “Lord, I need You now!” “I want to come Home & this isn’t it!”… is when He sends His best!!!
I know I can’t hold a candle to thanking God for all He’s done for me. And even as I sit to eat, I think… “How Lord, do I possibly give Grace to You & Thank You for all you do & send to me?” I don’t know what to say that I have not already said. I want it to be fresh, Spirit-filling, & right. And all I can come up with is this… “THANK YOU” just doesn’t seem to be enough!
Lord, Your first God-send’s more than enough for me! As for the rest…
Thank you. Love you. “God Bless” you!
