From Joel:
He wants to Surprise You!
todays scripture: If you listen diligently to the voice of the Lord your God, being watchful to do all His commandments which I command you ... all these blessings shall come upon you and over take you ... " Deuteronomy 28:1-2, AMP
Todays Word From Joel and Victoria: A surprise is simply something good that you weren't really expecting. It's something that makes you feel special and lets you know that someone is thinking about you. Surprises bring us joy and lift our hearts. Your Heavenly Father wants to surprise you and overtake you with His goodness. He wants to do things that make your life easier and lets you know how much He loves you.
The word "overtake" can also be translated "to catch you by surprise." Your Heavenly Father longs to be good to you - He wants to catch you by surprise! He wants to help you accomplish your dreams and overcome your obstacles. He wants to amaze you with His goodness and mercy. We should wake up every morning with the attitude, "I can't wait to see what God is going to do today.
Make room in your heart and mind for what God wants to do in your life today. Keep an attitude of faith and expectancy. As you do, you'll see His surprises. You'll see His hand of blessing overtake you and bring you to new levels in every area of your life!
Prayer for Today: Father in heaven, I open my heart and mind to You right now. Fill me with Your goodness and overtake me with Your blessings. I honor You today and invite You to use me to be a blessing to others. In Jesus' Name. Amen.

It is Friday, and the week again has been full. With this devotion in mind, I am able to look back at the week and pick out His surprises and blessings. One of the biggies ... family.

This was taken last Saturday, the night Jack and Sam made dinner for everyone. What a full table, it has to be amazing from my Grandmothers eyes to be sitting around a table with her daughter and her 7 great grandchildren. What a Blessing!!! Grandma heads back to Portland today, it was a special visit ... she will celebrate her 94th birthday this summer.

I will continue to look for His surprises today, I pray you will too!
