Do you believe that the Father cares about you? John 3:16 reveals His heart, “For God so loved the world He gave His only Son…” It was because He “so loved” that He “gave”…and He didn’t give something small. The Father gave His only Son – for you!
The Father Cares…For ME!
Last week, I was wrapping up my work day when the Holy Spirit whispered, “I want you to go to the Women’s Ministry Christmas party tonight.” I wasn’t planning on going, but trust He has a good reason when He prompts me to do something. I showed up, not very thrilled to be there, but I was there.
We kicked things off by decorating gingerbread houses and as we finished that I was contemplating leaving when I heard the Holy Spirit whisper again, “You’ll win the raffle if you stay.” Being an extrovert, I knew I needed to be around people so I decided to stay. We played a game and then went back to the tables for the raffle. There were six bundles to raffle off and as everyone settled in they drew the first name…”Sarah”….I had won the first bundle! It was a white Magnolia mug and a bible study.
…but wait there’s more!
They raffled the second bundle and as they got to the third I told my friend across the table how I really have been wanting a red Christmas mug since last year. The comment was prompted by the third bundle that included a red Christmas mug that said “Merry & Bright”. My friend quickly replied, “If I win, I’ll give it to you.” You know what? She won and gave me the red Christmas mug! As I drove home, I held the red Christmas mug in my hand and let what just transpire sink from my head to my heart. What are the odds that out of 50+ women that I would win AND my friend would win too AND give me the red mug.
The Father cares about me and the Father cares about you too!
I encourage you to share something you want that seems frivolous, like a red Christmas mug, and just see what He does for you!
