Shandra Lee. With Heart Wide Open. A Miracle In The Making.

Let all that you do be done in Love.

Pulling into the parking lot , the day’s mail scattered to the floor.
“Bills, bills, Bills” she whispered under her breath scanning the pile amidst magazines and Thanksgiving advertisements .

Quickly completing her meeting, returning to the car she tried to ignore the untidy pile but conviction and responsibility mingled with adept time-wasting skills for a moment putting off her next appointment, she walked around to the passenger side.

Opening the first envelope she found a coupon for free stuff. She reminded herself she had just two days before wondered about this.

“What’s this? ” puzzled and mildly frustrated she scanned the postmark and return label. “I just paid this!” Opening the bulky envelope she saw that at least future mortgage payments had decreased.

Shoving it aside she started the car.

But His Voice stopped her. “Look again”

There at the bottom of the last page of the lengthy explanation was a large refund check.

Her mouth fell open. Surprised, yet not surprised. The tears cascaded as she grinned ear to ear.
The amount of the second airfare she had in as many months purchased in Faith, weeks ago.

“You cannot out give Me~ and You certainly can’t out love Me” He said, smiling.

Friends, to some of you this sounds like a $$$ story. Not even. Gods Blessings overtake those who share~ a smile, a hug, a listening ear, a hearing heart~ even in the midst of our messy imperfection.

Please come back again. To hear about more of His Blessings In Disguise….and share yours.

Until next time-Just try out loving God. 🙂

Let all that you do be done in Love. 2Corinthians 16:14.

  1. Nope, you can’t out-give God. His abundant blessings return to you many fold, in unexpected ways. Aren’t God’s surprises fun?
    I look forward to seeing His response to your faith and your response in faith to His blessings in this coming year 🙂 ~~ Holly


    1. Dear Sweet Friend Holly,
      True are your words, spoken and unspoken. 😉
      “Surprise” Blessings found in the day to day are the best possible God Kiss and so evident as we walk with our hearts wide open.
      So thankful for your continued encouragement , Friend.


  2. Nice to meet you Shandra! I love this story!!! I have experienced God as ,Jehoveh Jireh in this way many times. 😀 He is so faithful! Thanks for this reminder!
    Bless you,
    Sherri Ohler
