I have a box standing ready at all hours of the day or night… waiting to receive.
It is my Divine Post Office. Several times a week throughout 2016, I would stop by and drop in prayers. Sometimes with tears and a troubled spirit, I would struggle to write the little prayer on the scrap of paper. Other times with joy and delight, I would drop by to post a note of thanks or celebration.
Whenever my heart was overwhelmed or overjoyed, I came knowing the Lord would be listening. With determination and trust, I would date and drop the little paper into the box, slip the latch in place, and be on my way, more often than not lighter and strengthened to face the trials and triumphs of the day.
Between today and tomorrow, I get to go back and read through the full box of papers and reflect on all that God has done with my heart and life.
I’ll let you know how it goes…
