even when you don’t see the whole staircase.
–Martin Luther King, Jr. (1929–68)
I received a lovely little cube-shaped box and the top of the box has a handle made out of acrylic. The handle looks like a diamond-shaped Crystal Quartz.
I enjoyed this little box so much when it was given to me a few years ago by a friend. The box originally held a fragrant candle in a glass. I used the candle and kept the box because it is so pretty; that crystal knob on top of it is unique. It reminds me of the beauty of crystals and gem stones that I work with in my fiber art creations. I enjoy doing research on crystals and natural gem stones and the history of them is fascinating. My box reminds me of the myriad of magnificent creations that God put into the natural world.
My precious box is now serving a new purpose. I’ve turned it into a “Prayer box” in which I will put written messages to God. In this way, I’ve turned my gift box into a gift that keeps on giving. My box has a new purpose.
Today, I’ll write my first message to God and place this message into my Prayer Box.
My first message is for my lovely California artist friend, Francine. In December she was in an accident and suffered a number of injuries.
I’ll write out my concerns and my request for good health and healing for my precious fellow artist, Francine.
A Question for my Readers:
Have you ever created a Prayer Box?
YOUR PRAYER BOX can be any sort of box you like.
YOUR PRAYER BOX can be any size.
If you have a Prayer Box or if you make one now, I would love to hear all about it.
I’d love to have you post a photo of you with your Prayer Box, too.
Please, tell me about YOUR PRAYER BOX.
Below, is the comment area so please take a few moments to send me a note or a photo today.
This post is intended to encourage you to begin giving your problems over to the only person who can take care of them and YOU!
I was inspired to make my own Prayer Box and to write this article after I saw a video on YouTube.
I hope you find my article meaningful to you and helpful in your prayer life. Let’s ask for miracles in abundance. I believe we will see answers to our prayers as we take the time to write out our requests and leave them in God’s hands.
