They give a problem to God, but then later, like the kid who has given his buddy his favorite toy in a moment of generosity and then decides he wants it back, they will latch on to it and pull, screaming "It's mine! It's mine! I never meant for you to keep it. I only said you could borrow it!" These are the kids we used to call Indian givers, though I'm sure that's seriously politically incorrect these days.
What's a God Box?
It's a box or any container that you designate to represent God. When you have something on your mind that you just can't let go of, write it down and put it in the God Box. It's a symbol of having given it over to God and we all know you don't pull Indian Giver with God. No sir, what's put in his capable hands stays in his hands. You don't keep taking it back to worry over....and you don't take those papers back out of the God Box, either.
Here's my handy work:
|I found these two boxes at Michael's craft store. They were|
originally $7.99 each, but were on sale for 40% off.
|I used scrapbooking stickers and papers to embellish the inside|
with sweet little springtime birdies and nests.
|An explanation of how it works is included because I know|
these women. They will ask me 1000 times otherwise.
|A reminder that what goes in the box, STAYS in the box.|
|And finally, I included some cards with verses about trusting God.|
