When I get an e-mail from God…

I really believe that I do sometimes. I think that He just happens to use someone elses computer and actual e-mail address, but I know that it’s from Him.

Today has been a rough day. Several times today, I’ve asked Donovan why. Why am I feeling like this? Why are we going through this? Why why why. I know that God has a plan, but sometimes, it’s hard to get my head around the fact that what I’m feeling and how I’m hurting, could possibly be good in any way. Then, I get an e-mail from God answering my question…

I’m an e-mail devotional-a-holic. I subscribe to several different daily devotionals, scriptures, etc. This evening, I got one from www.maxlucado.com that was an excerpt of his book, “On the Anvil”. I’ve never read this book, but the portion that I received was a description of how a blacksmith shapes metal. The process of it, what it sounds like, looks like, it almost gives feelings to the iron as it’s hammered and heated and shaped and molded. Then, it comes out, just how the blacksmith wants it, shaped just perfectly for the job the blacksmith has in mind for it. Then it gave this scripture…

“For a little while you may have had to suffer grief in all kinds of trials. These have come so that your faith—of greater worth than gold, which perishes even though refined by fire—may be proved genuine and may result in praise, glory and honor when Jesus Christ is revealed.”
I Peter 1:6-7

Yes, God definitely sends e-mail…
