When lollipops overflow!

The Pop Pop jar is very popular in our house. It is always over flowing with lollipops from Ellie’s Pop Pop. Each time we visit him he is waiting with another huge bag of lollipops. This recent bag contained 300. I thought about buying a larger jar but I actually like the message I hear when seeing the lollipops flow over the sides of the container.

Watching the jar overflow as we pour the lolipops in reminds me how my life has always overflowed with the goodness of God. Even in those times of uncertainty! Even when awful things were happening, there was still a blessing to talk about. I’ve spent many years feeling miserable and over the past ten years something changed and I just don’t want to live feeing emotionally miserable all the time when I don’t have to. I know! I know! There is so much turmoil in our world. I get it! It’s difficult to find the good in each day, but I promise it’s there. The overflowing lollipops reminds me of the scripture found in Psalms 23:5-6 (NLT)…

“You prepare a feast for me in the presence of my enemies. You honor me by anointing my head with oil. My cup overflows with blessings. Surely your goodness and unfailing love will pursue me all the days of my life, and I will live in the house of the Lord forever.”

If you are struggling during this season to find the good in everyday I want to challenge you to grab a pen and paper and begin writing down all the blessings around you. I took a year before Ellie was born and accepted the challenge of writing down 1000 blessings in my life. It was a true game changer for me.

Keep this is mind. Earth was never meant to be our home. We belong in heaven. Earth is far from perfect because of sin but God still wants to shower us with His love and blessings each day.

How is your life overflowing with Gods goodness?

Howdy! I am passionate about sharing simple God lessons through everyday real life events in my daily life. I’ve been writing since I was 11. What started off as a way to escape or cope with the uncertainty of life, has turned into a calling. I do believe that God has called me to share what He has placed on my heart with all of you! I recently published a children’s book The Chicks Save Easter. You can find it on amazon. https://www.amazon.com/Chicks-Save-Easter-Helena-Rayos/dp/B086Y6K19M I pray God finds you where you are and you allow Him to take you where He has called you to love and serve Him.
