My Double Portion

I have been turning a corner over the past 8 months from wondering "where is the good" to seeing God's blessings all around me. This past weekend at Women's Retreat in Lake Arrowhead, CA, was a pinnacle of sorts in this area. Our first night, the speaker, Susanne Sheppmann, spoke on the concept of God's double-portion of blessing. She encouraged us that He is already generously putting them out there and dared us to find them. In the third session, she talked about the Everlasting, Faithful Father who gives us special gifts that mean something only to us because He knows our hearts. She pointed out that  His gifts are GOING to be the gifts that touch our HEARTS. In this case it was less about looking for them as it was BELIEVING that He meant them especially for us. Let me tell you, God gave me a double portion AND He touched my heart with the gifts He gave me over the weekend retreat. Blessed be the Name of the Lord!
