A few weeks ago, hubby and I got a surprise!
The surprise occurred over something small, yet it was clear the hand of God was involved, and it blessed us so much.
We’d ordered a fancy microwave from an Amazon seller. When the microwave came, it was a cheaper model. Disappointed and expecting to fight it out with the seller, we contacted him. But, he asked us to do something we thought was odd, so we contacted Amazon and told them what had happened.
Amazon contacted the seller and wham, we got a full refund for the absent fancy microwave.
Then came the hard part—what do we do with the one that was sent to us? It was not the upscale one we ordered, but it wasn’t a cheap one either. The seller said he did not send it. We asked Amazon the same thing. They said they didn’t send it either, so keep it.
Hubby’s name and our address were on the box, so someone sent it. Soooooo…we kept it! Yay! When a free microwave falls from the sky, you receive it and thank God for it.
What this experience showed me is that God surprises us with blessings even when we aren’t in dire need. He simply wants to please us.
And surely, every time I heat up my Smart Ones, Santa Fe Rice and Beans, I smile.
Every good and perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of the heavenly lights, who does not change like shifting shadows. Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. – James 1:17
I was young and now I am old, yet I have never seen the righteous forsaken or their children begging bread. Nor will they lack fancy cooking devices.
– Ps 37:25 (The Very, Very, Very Paraphrased Bible)
