Packages From God

Packages arrive on our doorstep in all shapes and colors. We are often surprised by what’s inside. Some packages are better than others. Some can bring great joy and excitement, yet others bring disappointment. God sends us packages too. I invite you to discover what He sends.

I don’t believe that I have ever written a poem before in my life. I claim no poetic skill, yet for some reason, the Holy Spirit moved me to write one the other day during my Morning Prayer time and prompted me to share it with you. The message seemed to come out of the blue. I hope it touches you.

PACKAGES FROM GOD

The package arrived on time today,

with morning’s dawn it came my way.

I’ve received these gifts many times before

some with surprise and fun to explore.

 Some left me sad or deeply confused,

some brought me grief and heart breaking news.

Others brought joy, a smile to my face,

they brought a friend’s care and loving embrace.

 Each package that I’m speaking of

is a new day  from God above. 

Times past have shown that some days were good,

some were not what I’d wished they would.

 A day will come I do not know when

 package arrival will suddenly end.

Until then, when each package arrives

I’ll untie the ribbon to see what’s inside.

No matter what type of day it might be,

I know in my heart God is always with me.

With God’s Son my Savior, His Spirit a dove,

I’ll trust in His wisdom and walk in His love.

When no package arrives on some fateful date,

God’s hand I’ll hold tight and pass through the gate.

Heavenly Father, I thank you for the gift of each new day. Your precious Son, Jesus lights my way and your Holy Spirit strengthens me during times of trial and grief. Keep me always close to you on this journey through life. Please bring me home to you when my days here are done.  Amen!

As always, I love to read your comments below as well as hear from you personally by clicking here.

Brian is a Christian author and speaker. Brian, a lifelong Catholic, felt his life was forever changed when God spoke to his heart while attending an eight day silent Christian retreat in November of 2011. Soon after that retreat Brian founded 4th Day Letters and Broken Door Ministries. With the God inspired message of mercy and unconditional love that was placed on his heart during that retreat, Brian has been impacting others all over the country and around the world with his weekly letters, his talks, and his all day Christian retreats. Brian’s life was again impacted in a very dramatic way when his eyesight suddenly became permanently impaired due to a diagnosis of Multiple Scleroses (MS) in June of 2014. This health challenge has only served to draw Brian closer to God and bolster the importance of this timely yet ageless message.

    Brian,
    God just keeps on pouring out His many gifts on you so that you are able to share them with soooooo many people. God bless you for using His gifts to share and to bless others.

    Indeed, a day is a gift. Like a package come to be opened. My favorite ones often come on Sundays, not the usual day for UPS or USPS or FedEx, but GOD sends them ( and I am not talking of the Guaranteed Overnight Delivery Company either! They went out of biz.) God is good and dependable and generous– all the time.

    This beautiful poem reminds me of the many packages that I, along with my family and friends, have opened. You are so right, some are gifts that are easy to accept, while others are gifts as well, but much harder to open and process. Thank you for this beautiful “package” on this cold Tuesday morning. Blessings!

    If your not a poet, you sure are one with this poem. It is excellent.

    Very moving piece. I enjoyed it. A reminder to us all of why yesterday is the past, tomorrow is the future – but today is the present. A true gift. God bless you, brother. Thanks for sharing.

    Great poem. Not surprised you wrote it.

    Hope the tour in FL is gong well. You are missing our cold snap.
