What's In The Box
She asked for a wedding ring. He gave her a guitar. And she said what in the world am I gonna do with this? And so she taught herself to play it. And it changed her life. I was watching the story of Loretta Lynn. I look at this right now, knowing what I wanted, what I asked for. And it feels like I got a guitar instead of a ring. But perhaps the One Who is the Giver, sees what I cannot see. That what has been given will allow for something far greater than the immediate I seek. I'm sure her guitar gave way for a ring she never dreamed of when she first asked for it. Ephesians 3:20. Sometimes the box makes us question the gift. So in all circumstances, I am reminded to be ever, thankful.
