I love that I have been given the opportunity to review products by Dayspring and their new "Redeemed" collection. I love Dayspring and I love the brightly colored products in this collection.
When my box arrive of products I was selected to review, I excitedly tore into it and found some beautiful things and this verse:
“In all things God works for the good of those who love Him who have been called according to His purpose.”
|Redeemed Gift Bag|
God working for our good doesn't always mean we will see the good.
Was God working the day Samuel was born. Yes.
Was God working during my father's illness? Most definitely.
Is God working now, in the aftershock of grief? Absolutely.
I know He was working the day Samuel was born due to the miracle that took place and how close he came to not making it here safely. I know He was working during my father's illness because I prayed with my dad and I have heard stories of him actually leading prayers with others. That in itself is amazing. I know God is working now because he has surrounded us with loving, caring people who will pray with us and for us and support us with their love and prayers.
So, I guess you could say, this verse is now one that I lean on regularly. No matter what, God is working. Whether I can see the good or not, God is working.
In All Things.
(Who knew all this would come from a product review?!)
One of the things I was sent for review was the Found Tea Cup. I love this! It may actually end up being a gift to remind a dear friend of mine that He is Working...
The I Am Found Mug. I. love. this. mug.
I love the little reminder of love in the bottom of the mug. I think I feel a coffee craving coming on...
I was also sent the Love One Another Memofolio and the gift bag to review. I love this little notepad and sticky notes. I am a compulsive list-maker so these lovely stickies made me smile too.
All of these products were not only beautiful and well-made, their message is meaningful and so important. You are loved. You are redeemed. God IS working. I absolutely love this whole collection!
I have one more little goodie to show off...
