A Late "Bless You" Is Always Better : )

Try it!

In a room, wherever you are, when you hear a person close to you sneeze...  Don't say "bless you" immediately.  Wait for a minute, maybe 5 minutes, and then tell them, "By the way, God bless you"  I would bet it'll mean much more to them.  Whenever I do it, even if I wait 10 minutes, usually they know exactly why I told them, "God bless you" they didn't forget : ) but for some reason it usually makes it more special.  Why? Perhaps because if you waited that long and still gave them a "Bless you!" that means you must have really thought about them and perhaps you really want God to bless them :)  

I think it's often the same way with us and God.  We say our prayers and in a sense we expect a response as soon as we pray our prayers, and that's alright!  In fact we should expect God's response.  Nothing wrong with having faith to expect a response to come very quickly either, but I'm here to say, that if it doesn't come immediately, that just means God's holding out to make it even sweeter, even that much more special for you and significant, meaningful, and full of awareness that God has been thinking about you that whole time.  Trust in God today : )  Know that your "Bless You" is coming up! : )   God hasn't forgotten about you!  God wants to surprise you with His Gracious "Bless You", today!

God bless you today! : )

If you'd like to accept Jesus into your life today, pray this simple prayer of God's love and grace today: Lord Jesus, I thank you for dying for all my sin; now Lord I invite you into my heart. Come and be my everything today and forever. Forgive my sin as I make You and you alone Lord in my life. Amen. Now read the book of God's love in the Bible: The book of John chapters 1-21. God promises He will guide your life. Pray and ask God to bring the right people into your life. God will guide you to the right church full of people who love His words in the Bible. Our God is so faithful. God bless you today.
