Blessed by Kindness

“From the end of the earth will I cry unto thee, when my heart is overwhelmed: lead me to the rock that is higher than I.”
Psalm 61:2

Have you ever had one of those days? One of those days that you know it is only by the grace of God you have made it out alive? Well, it is really only by the grace of God that you make it through any day alive but sometimes you have those days when your heart feels heavy with some heartache or burden or the day just isn’t going your way. And yes, to be 150% honest, I have those days too. :) To be 175% honest today happened to be one of them and I just felt simply exhausted, both mentally and spiritually. It kind of  felt like I had been running up hill in the spiritual race{Hebrews 12:2} for the last few weeks! Side note: It is good to remember during these times to keep on running as we keep our eyes fixed on “the the author and finisher of our faith” {Hebrews 12:2} and not forgot to “cast all your anxieties on Him, because He cares for you” {1 Peter 5:7} plus “ALL things work together for good to them that love God, to them who are the called according to his purpose”{Romans 8:28}! God is FAITHFUL and it seems on those days that aren’t so grand (although ever single day is GREAT because God has given me the life and breath to live it) He sends a random act of kindness my way from a parent, sister, brother or FRIEND that brightens up my day. And that happened today! My Iowa friend {Hannah} sent the cutest brown paper package all tied up with string ribbon and a letter for me! It put a smile on my face. I was blessed today by a random act of kindness from a lovely friend. Thank you! :) If you haven’t already clicked on her name, hop over to her beautiful blog,!

So y’all remember, random acts of kindness will always brighten up somebody’s day or week or LIFE! :)

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all, especially to those who are of the household of faith.”
Galatians 6:10

About Rachel

"Come now, and let us reason together," says the Lord, "Though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall be as wool. If you are willing and obedient you shall eat the good of the land; but if you refuse and rebel, you shall be devoured by the sword"; for the mouth of the Lord has spoken." Isaiah 1:18-20

  1. ah you are so welcome! I love doing fun packaging and stuff like that for other crafty people like me who I know will appreciate it. ;) I was praying you would get it at a time when it would really encourage you, and it sounds like it did-ptL! trust Him for the strength to get through your busy week!

  2. God is good! Hannah is a good friend of mine and I was there when she picked that out for you. Thanks for the reminder that God can use our acts of kindness to show His never-failing love.
