Pampered and Privileged

“I gave you a land which you had not tilled and cities which you had not built, to dwell in; you have eaten of vineyards and olive groves which you did not plant.” – Joshua 24: 13

There are times when I feel so pampered by God.
Like that time I went to the USA with only $50 to my name. Plane fare and pocket money were C.O.D. (care of Daddy). Yummy food, comfortable places to stay in Chicago and LA, take-home gifts plus part of my tuition for a writing course at the University of Illinois were courtesy of my generous and loving cousins. My cousins’ community, where I attended prayer meetings, even gave me $20. I went home a couple of hundred dollars richer with that together with money sent by an uncle in Florida.
Another time, I needed parking space and thought of parking in front of a spa. I entered to ask about their packages so the guard wouldn’t shoo me away. I got a free massage and a discount card.
There are many other times when the Lord unzips the heavens and showers me with blessings I didn’t work for.
But it’s not just me. I see this scenario repeated in the lives of other people. Just goes to show what kind of a generous and loving God we have. Lella Santiago (mirellasantiago@yahoo.com)
There’s nothing we have done to deserve God’s love. His love is unconditional.

“For all You’ve given to me, for all the blessings that I cannot see. Thank You, Lord!” (from the song “Thank You, Lord”)
