one thousand gifts {#1947-1991}

“Stop and consider the wondrous works of God.”

{Job 37:14} 

Stop. Consider.

It doesn’t take much stopping to see a glimpse of God’s glory. It’s all around us. But when you stop and when you consider what you’ve seen, you see His glory even more clearly. You realize how big and wonderful He really is.

 When I make myself stop long enough to recall little ways I’ve seen Him work throughout my day, I consistently become overwhelmed with gratitude and Jesus becomes bigger in my eyes. 

So I hope you’ll take the time to stop this week. Consider. He’s wondrous. And may your heart be thankful.

      • Thanks Sarah,
        Her book has changed all our lives as well. One woman probably has a book in her about her experience of almost dying after we studied the book and how Jesus cared for her, brought her wonderful spiritual gifts and has totally changed her view of God.
