Way beyond

I'm just gonna go ahead and summarize this blog post in one statement...We serve an amazing God. A huge, unbelievably big, not even comparable or containable God.

That's all I got.

Just kidding.

Lately I have been attending a bible study and Pricilla Shirer has been teaching on the abundant goodness of our God. She has been talking about how God wants to bless us way beyond what we can image. He doesn't want to just give us the basic desire of our hearts, but rather, He wants to blow our socks off with His goodness and abundance.

She gave some really awesome examples that we see just in our everyday life. For example...

Our God didn't just create a star to put in the sky for us to enjoy...nope, He created galaxies upon galaxies for our wonderment and amazement.

He didn't just create a bird or a butterfly...nope, He created millions of different and unique types and species of birds and butterflies for our enjoyment.

He didn't just give us bread and water to sustain us through life...nope, He gave us delicious fruits, fresh vegetables and mouth watering meats to feast upon for our pleasure.

He didn't just provide us with a plain blue sky and clouds...nope, He designed amazing, ever changing sunsets, sunrises, rainbows and crisp night skies.

He didn't just give us flat land for scenery...nope, He formed mountain ranges, deep canyons, rolling meadows, flower-filled fields and thick forests filled with lush greenery.

Don't you see, we serve a God who goes above and beyond for us. He doesn't just give us what we need to get by, but rather He pours out, and not just pours out...but overflows our cups.

We may face difficult times or stressful situations, and it can be easy to focus on the negative things that life can throw at us, but just remember...we serve an overloving, overgiving God who's desire is to pour out His blessings on us.
