It was just a throw-away line from The Birding Bunch, not central to the topic of the post, but it caught my attention.
Just a day trip this time and probably no birding will occur unless God just happens to send something our way. He has before on one of those country roads.
Our God delights in “just happening to send things our way.” As parents, we delight in doing things that bring joys and pleasures to our children, and our Heavenly Father rejoices in “sending things our way” — not because He has to, because we demand it, but simply because He loves us and a love that delights in giving is central to His nature.
We go around a bend in life’s road to find a joy, a pleasure, a comfort, that He “happened” to put in our path. Delight in His gifts. Thank the Giver.
The LORD thy God in the midst of thee is mighty; he will save, he will rejoice over thee with joy; he will rest in his love, he will joy over thee with singing.
