Gifts of Goodness

God provides for our needs. He sees inside our hearts and skillfully chooses gifts He allows us to receive. 

God takes time to teach us how to honor Him with our love. He shows us how to use His mighty tools of purpose and prepares us to discover great things. 

Sometimes we become impatient as we learn to be taught how God will use us for His glory. We wonder which gifts He will lovingly provide for our lives, and question our ability to use them. But God lovingly fills us with His gifts of reward, and helps us recognize we have been blessed.  

God creates desire in us to serve Him with all of our hearts. When He has filled us with new passions of purpose, He leads us on a journey of faith and prepares us to trust in Him. God shows us which path to travel, and helps us discover when we are ready to follow His lead.

We must learn to trust in God‘s leading, be willing to surrender, and allow ourselves to be led. God will complete His good work in us and patiently wait while we’re prepared to return the offerings of His love. 

Offerings to God are shared treasures of appreciation. We learn to share what He has given, and recognize what it means to honor Him with our talents and love. He knows what has been given to share. The Bible says, “You must each decide in your heart how much to give. And, don’t give reluctantly or in response to pressure. “For God loves a person who gives cheerfully.” 2 Corinthians 9:7 NLT

When the heart is pure and the intent is good, God reaches us. He opens our lives to His will. He fills us with His gifts of goodness and prepares us to understand exactly how they will be used to bring honor and glory to Him.  

God is near and He loves YOU,


  1. Thank you for reminders of God's goodness. Some days it is difficult to know this truth, but your words keep me close to Him and eventually I can see glimpses of His goodness in my life.
    Reading your encouraging writings is one of those glimpses.....and blessings.....even when I don't feel what I know is true.
    Thank you.

    1. Thank you for sharing what's in your heart. God is faithful to know what we feel. He leads us to a place of rest and lovingly reminds us He's near. Taking time to come before His presence of peace will help us every day...especially on days when our weary hearts are filled with wonder.
      God is the one constant thing we can count on. I'm glad you read the devotions. I'm grateful God gives me tools to write them and the opportunity to share what He whispers to my heart. God bless you.
