Creating a felt need for that new taste sensation, that new mode of transportation, or that new electronic form of communication, etc. drives our holiday hinting. We dream of having this or that and how much better our lives would be. But as you were approaching Christmas this year were there any gifts that you hoped you wouldn't get? Now I'm not talking about another tie or socks, I'm thinking more along the Lines of pain and suffering. Gifts that surprise our secure lifestyles, like the loss of a iob, an illness, plans that don't work out, fractures in relationships. These are gifts we don't enjoy but rather endure. Gifts that expose our inability to handle life on our own. So what do we do with these gifts when they come our way? Left to ourselves we complain, cry, or become- despondent. We wonder why this or that had to happen. We feel like victims of circumstances. The Apostle Paul felt like this and asked God three times to remove a gift like this from his life. Do you know what God's answer was? "My grace is enough: it's all you need. My strength comes into its own in your weakness7 [2 Corinthians 12:9 The Message] Not the answer Paul wanted to hear. But as he trusted God to help him through these gifts he gained a new perspective. He began to see their value of driving him to depend upon God rather than himself. He came to know God's purpose in allowing these gifts to by Wayne Freedman become a part of his life experience. And his response eventually became, "I quit focusing on the handicap and began appreciating the gift. It was a case of Christ's strength moving in on my weakness. Now I take limitations in stride, and with good cheer, these limitations that cut me down to size - abuse, accidents, opposition, bad breaks. I just let Christ take over! And so the weaker I get the stronger I become:' [2 Corinthians 12:9,10 The Message] May this be our response when we get gifts we don't want to get! & coffee.
