Yet, they are completely unaware of it.
They sit unopened. Untouched. Unnoticed.
Do they deserve these gifts?
But we choose to give them anyway.
They walk by the gifts unaware.
They rush by these gifts in the midst of the norm and routine with blinded eyes.
Oblivious to the presence of something they have begged for.
If you then, being evil, know how to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give what is good to those who ask Him! --Matthew 7:11
I'm sure there are many gifts that I have rushed passed that He has ready for me to open, but in my habits and schedules I walk by with unnoticing perception.
With blinded eyes.
They are there.
Presents very present.
Things I have begged Him for.
Things I don't deserve.
Yet, He gives them anyway.
Just because He loves me.
I must slow down and begin to see.
No longer oblivious, but conscious -
of the gifts He has, in hands extended, holding them out for me to open.
Every good thing given and every perfect gift is from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is no variation or shifting shadow. --James 1:17
