Hey World,

This one is going to be short. It’s more of a thought. So, I lost my favorite bible. Actually, this is the second time I lose it and had to replace it. I say my favorite Bible because of the version and the way it is set up. It just looks cool and the version is so understandable. I usually don’t have to look up what words mean. The first time I let it go. I didn’t want to go back to the place I assumed I lost it. I was very sad but, I found another online. So my new one actually had an awesome cover. I was excited to use it and highlight all my favorite verses and anything I felt God talk to me about. So, about two weeks ago it went missing. I looked all over my home and even in my car. Tried to retrace my steps but I can not find it. It even crossed my mind that someone might have stolen it from my car. I forget sometimes to lock my car. So, I have been using a Bible that I was gifted. It is a study bible so it is big and bulky. The version is a good version (NIV) but not the one I usually used (NLT).  I wasn’t happy but, I decided to get over it and use it.

Today, I had two strong thoughts cross my mind. One, was that it was meant to be. Maybe someone has it now and it really digging into it. Maybe, they are learning about our beautiful Savior. Maybe, they are reading my highlighted verses and getting encourage. Maybe, they needed that Bible more than me. It gave me peace to know that if God put that thought and that peace in my heart then someone is taking advantage of that Bible. My second thought was…first world problem. Yeah, I said it. My “problem” was really a stupid first world problem. There are brave Christian out in the world trying to get any bible out in a communist country or, a country where being a christian can get you killed. Their are new Christian’s that have heard about a savior that loves them so much. That would risk their life for a Bible. And here I am being upset about losing my Bible and complaining about not liking the version I got. Wanting the less bulking one. Wanting the color looking one. I seriously feel ashamed that I could be so shallow. So, here I am writing my thoughts and wanting to thank God for showing me…well me. Teaching me to be grateful for what I have and for what ever situation comes my way. Seeing it for what it really is. Yep, that it. Think about it. What are you making a “problem.”

 

Ta-Ta,

AGG
