Whatever is good and perfect is a gift coming down to us from God our Father, who created all the lights in the heavens. He never changes or casts a shifting shadow.
James 1:17 NLT
Today, my grandpa Bill is coming home from the hospital for hospice care in our home. As I read this verse from a section of James 1 on “Faith and Endurance” and as we have needed to say no to so many other things in order to do what is “good and perfect” (or as close as we can) for our family — we have been rejoicing to God that all of this is a gift from God.
We must be careful not to miss seeing the blessings just because the enemy is trying to cast shadows around us in our life’s circumstances — look past the shadows to see the light — He is always there, never changing, always faithful.
Thank you, Jesus! Thank you, Holy Spirit! Thank you, Heavenly Father!
