“God-sends!”

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!
