EVERY GOOD AND PERFECT GIFT IS FROM ABOVE
Every good and perfect gift that we receive comes from the hand of God. Our life, our families, everything good comes from the Father of heavenly lights. And God does not change like shifting shadows for He is always faithful and dependable.
We have not always experienced such consistency and purity in our earthly relationships. Some gifts that we have received have come with strings attached and people that we have trusted in have changed like shifting shadows. But God is not like that. He is the giver of good gifts and He never changes. Never. He is the same yesterday, today and forever. His love is not fickle or conditional, His gifts are showered on us, not because we have earned them, but because He loves to give good gifts to the ones He adores. Every golden sunrise is a token of Father's affection. He paints the sky with rainbows and scatters clouds simply for our delight. All of creation bears witness to His love and His majesty.
If we begin to understand that all we receive in life comes as a gift from our Heavenly Father, then we will begin to look at even the simple things with awe and child-like wonder. Our Father is the most generous person in the universe. He loved us so much that He gave us His only begotten Son, and He continues to love us by giving us the gift of life every day that we live. May every breathe that you take, remind you that your life is a gift from your Father, who loves you and does not change like shifting shadows!
