Scripture Help!

me again...

Since this blog became more fun with COMMENTS, I have a question for those of you who stop by and read from time to time.

I am looking for Scripture that reflects that God has something in store for us that is BETTER than what we have, if we will just put down what we are holding so that He can give us what is best. Make sense?

Thanks for the assistance!

Lisa~This sounds like a fun "research" project! I don't know of one off hand, but I'd love to dig a little bit and see what I can come up with...have you found one yet?

Hi Amy!
Not yet. I am working on a scrapbook of "Lessons Learned." I am learning so much about God just by being a parent! One day Kinley was playing with something, and I had a different toy for her. She really really wanted what I had, but she wouldn't put down what she had long enough to take what was BETTER. I wondered how many times I have done that with God! Wouldn't put down what I was holding in order to open my hand for his blessings--which are far greater than anything I can do for myself. I know it is truth, just don't know what is backing it up! I would love to have Scripture reference for each "lesson" so that someday Kinley can see them too.

WOW ... Lisa. That is an amazing "lesson learned". Seriously. You could turn that into a mini sermon :) I will do some digging around when I have time to see if I can come up with anything!
