More Than Expected

More Than Expected
August 17, 2019

I had been using an old belt for some time and last May I got a new one. It was a cheap belt from Target. It was discounted at about $11.00. It was fine for a few months, but sometimes I would punch the wrong hole and it would be loose. It was a more traditional belt and I had not know there are newer styles. The time came one day when my pants nearly fell off while I was on the street and I knew I had to get a new belt.

I just got a new belt yesterday and it is amazing. The technology on it is very different. It is not using a conventional method of punching holes, but it is sliding securely until it is tight. I am amazed at this design as now the belt is very secure. This seems like something very trivial, but such a simple thing got me excited all of yesterday and still today. There is a passage that says:

“No one has ever seen this,
and no one has ever heard about it.
No one has ever imagined
what God has prepared for those who love him.” Isaiah 64:4

I am amazed at the times when God really comes through in simple ways such as with this new belt.

Prayer:

Father in Heaven, thank You so much that You care for us and surprise us with simple things. I pray that we would open our eyes to the ways that You are showing Your kindness, but also please help us to show kindness to others.
