Wow! Tuesday is Ship Day!! Who's excited?! Every single month I channel the A-Team, "I love it when a plan comes together!" However, it's not our plan. It's never our plan. Weeks and months into collaborating, planning, curating, packaging, and praying: our outlines and ideas never compare to what God puts into our kits. He always has ways of opening and closing doors, or changing plans and we just know it's because that is what any one of you needs to see, read, hear, or have at this time in your life. It truly is humbling for us.
I tend to be a bit of a hoarder: If I use THIS sticker or ALL of this paint, I won't have it this other time I MIGHT need it. In my concern of not having what I may need in the future, I forget to just enjoy each experience as it comes. Is that you too? Part of my New Year's Resolutions has been to actually USE what I have! Just as Exodus 16 talks about God providing Manna to the people of Isreal for 40 years, I will be provided with what I need as I use what I have collected. I will no longer be the person to attempt to gather extra each day only for it to be ruined. So I say to myself and you: Write with that good pen. Pull out that good China. Break in to that favorite color. Add in that ingredient in the back of the shelf... And use each kit to its absolute fullest! Maybe that little change was created just for you. Have you gotten our kit and something in it spoke to you like an answered prayer? Feel free to share in the comments.
