In this fast paced world that we live in today, do you find yourself thinking, ‘Where did the time go?!” or, “I wish things would slow down so I could enjoy the moment.” When it comes to time, the Bible tells us that God’s definition of time is not the same as our definition of time…or even our understanding of time. Which brings us to the theme verse of this month’s Box of Blessings:
“But do not forget this one thing, dear friends: with the Lord a day is like a thousand years, and a thousand years are like a day.” (2 Peter 3:8)
Can you imagine the happiest day of your life being like a thousand years? The psalmist wrote, “Better is one day in your courts than a thousand elsewhere.” (Psalm 84:10) My prayer is that the items in this month’s Box will help you make the most of every day…that every day will be lived out in the Lord’s presence and each day will be better than a thousand days anywhere else!
So let’s take a look at the blessings in this month’s Box:
To start off the year focused on restoring your relationship with the Lord and living each day in the Lord’s presence, we have a 365 day devotional titled, Restoration Year, by bestselling author John Eldredge. Each daily devotion features a Bible verse, a reading and a closing prayer or inspiring challenge that will equip you to pursue a lasting transformation. (And it comes with a ribbon bookmark!)
What can make a daily devotional even better? Why, a journal to record how God is renewing your joy for living! The journal, One Thousand Prayers is just that: a journal containing 1,000 prayers! Not only does it have a thousand prayers, in the back of the book it also has a “Read Through the Bible in a Year” schedule. You’re going to love the texture of this hardcover book. And yes, it comes with a ribbon bookmark!
The very next verse in 2nd Peter after our theme verse says this: “The Lord is not slow in keeping His promise, as some understand slowness. He is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance.” (2 Peter 3:9) The lyrics to the song A Thousand More on the Thrive CD by the same title describes this promise perfectly:
Who can heal the hardest heart?
Who can hear the softest prayer?
I could run a thousand miles
Still, I know You’d find me there.
Oh praise the Lord, the holy one
O, praise the King of perfect love
A thousand times my soul will sing ‘hallelujah’
Yet I will sing a thousand more.
I really thought the Connecting God’s Promises Dot to Dot looked like a unique gift that combines an extreme puzzle challenge with devotions. Each of the 20 designs is based on a Scripture that grounds you in God’s promises. And can you believe that each design has up to one thousand dots per page?! (Did I mention this is an extreme challenge?) Whether you’re a puzzle enthusiast or a coloring book lover, you’ll delight in this stunning collection of images as you reflect on God’s promises for you.
I just love the print of Psalm 84:10 created by my sweet friend at Mama Thoughts. Not only is it a beautiful piece of art, but it’s also suitable for framing and would make a great gift. Who wouldn’t love to have a beautiful, framed Scripture verse to hang on their kitchen wall?
Last but not least, we have a pack of high quality, Christian Encouragement greeting cards. As you’re reading the Restoration Year devotional or writing in your One Thousand Prayers Journal, take time to prayerfully consider who would be blessed by receiving the Word of God in a greeting card. (Every card has a Bible verse in it!) I know God will bring to mind the exact person who truly needs a word of encouragement today.
We started off talking about how God’s definition of time is not the same as our definition of time and how God is not slow in keeping His promise… and is patient with us. Is there someone you know who is struggling and yearning to experience a day that is better than a thousand elsewhere? Every item in this month’s Box of Blessings would make for a perfect gift for that person.
May each and every day in the coming year be spent in His courts and in His Presence. And may you have a thousand more like it!
