Instead live amazed at the surprises God gives you.
One week ago I was giving my testimony in my adult Bible study group. Two middle school girls lingered in the room to hear. One sat behind me, quietly, out of sight. But listening. Intently.
Shortly after our session was over, she showed me a piece of paper. While I was talking, she had been taking notes. And composing a song.
I was amazed at the gift.
Before the night was over, she had printed a copy of her lyrics and was sitting at her piano working on the melody.
I hadn’t expected it. And not from there.
But that’s the way God is. He’s unpredictable in his giving. Marvel at him.

Part of Jamie’s song, His Story
... And I’m glad to know that
I can go through this life
As long as I have my faith
Though things have left
That I regret
I can make it through
’Cause I’m not the author of this life
I’m just a part of His story

Where lately has God surprised you with a gift?
