Mailboxes, Miracles and Mission

You never quite know what will turn up in the mail… Sometimes it’s overdue accounts and unexpected bills, sometimes it good news and sometimes bad news. There’s always plenty of junk mail and distractive propaganda and then there’s often times a letter from a distant friend. In the modern age of internet and social media there’s still something really special about good old fashioned mail in a mailbox.

I photographed this colourful row of rural letterboxes on a recent trip through the New England high country of NSW. It reminded me that God knows where I live. He knows my address and He knows my heart. He knows that in my brokenness and sin I needed a Saviour… and that Jesus saw so much value in me He was willing to die for me. That’s how much God is concerned about my life and future. And the best letters you will ever get in the mail are simply the promises of His word. The Bible is like a huge love letter for humanity all about God’s grace, mercy and kingdom.

Don’t ever underestimate your value to God. He knows where you are at and He is with you through the challenges and ordeals of life. So keep expecting miracles in the mail and keep desiring to serve Him on the mission!!

For God so loved the world that He gave His one and only son, that whoever believes in Him shall not perish but have eternal life. For God did not send His son into the world to condemn the world but to save the world through him. John 3:16-17
