Unattractive Gifts

August 16, 2009

“Dear friend, God may send you some valuable gifts wrapped in unattractive paper. But do not worry about the wrappings, for you can be sure that inside He has hidden treasures of love, kindness, and wisdom. If we will simply take what he sends and trust Him for the blessings inside, we will learn the meaning of the secrets of His providence, even in times of darkness.”

– A.B. Simpson, Streams in the Desert

“Remember your word to your servant,
because you have given me hope.
This is my comfort in my trouble,
that your promise gives me life.”

– Psalm 119:49-50
