I Won the Lottery!

“It is the Lord’s blessing that makes you wealthy. Hard work can make you no richer.”  Proverbs 10:22 

Have you ever daydreamed about being rich?  I used to spend time daydreaming about winning the lottery.  Which is a pretty strange dream for someone like me to have; I have probably bought five lottery tickets in my entire life.  But, I would imagine it none-the-less!

I would imagine all the things that I could do with that money.  All the family members I could bless with my winnings and I have quite a few family members.  I would love to be able to gift my children and their children with an inheritance that could help them during times of need.  I would love to be able to provide the means for helping my nieces and nephews pay back their college debts and help them pay for the education of their own children.  It would make my heart sing if I had the financial ability to foot the bill for my entire family to take a trip together, especially since my parents are getting older.

As, a matter of fact I had this very daydream, this morning, as I was taking my shower.  I know, I know…here you are back in my bathroom again, sorry!  I was thinking about this gift that I would love to win, so I could share it with all of my family, and it really would not require much from me.  I would just have to go to the store and pay a nominal fee for a lottery ticket and, if I won, it would pour blessing after blessing after blessing into my life and by extension into the lives of the people that I love.  I would love to bestow blessings like this into the lives of my family.

And, then I heard this, “You already won the lottery.  At least, the only one that truly counts.  You have the greatest inheritance the world has ever known. Share that with your family.  Share that with your friends.  Share that with your neighbors.  Share that with the people that you meet.  You came into this world with nothing and you will leave this world with nothing, but you can leave riches beyond your greatest imagining to your heirs.  You mentioned that you want to take your family on a trip, all of them together in one place…I know a place where you can all meet and it won’t cost you a penny; not even the price of a lottery ticket.  It’s all on me, my Son paid the price and I will give it to you for everyone you love and share it with, FOR FREE!”

Thank you God!  What a deal you have given to me and to anyone that accepts this gift of life from your Son.  What a reunion we are all going to have in heaven with you!!!  I don’t want to leave one family member behind; I want them all to be in on the greatest inheritance that the world has ever known.  This is the best trip for my family to take…the trip to heaven to meet you face to face.  Make me an instrument of Your truth into the lives of the people that I meet and remind me to be intentional in introducing them to this trip of a lifetime that we are guaranteed through the life, death and resurrection of Your Son, Jesus Christ!  To You we give all the praise and the glory.  In the name of Your perfect Son I pray, Amen.




  1. Wow I love your bathroom time with our Father. Thank you for sharing. I too have dreamed about winning the lottery, I also don’t buy tickets. I so look forward to receiving the win one day! Love the idea of sharing the win that my family and friends can inherit as well! You always leave me with so very much to think about!!

  2. Wow! I got goosebumps as I read this Patti! How awesome and true, we have all that we need and could ever desire in our Lord Jesus Christ! ❤

Oaks Of Righteousness

Isaiah 61:1-3 "The spirit of the Lord God is upon me, because the Lord has annointed me; He has sent me to bring good news to the oppressed, to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim liberty to the captives, and release to the prisoners; to proclaim the year of the Lords's favor, and the day of vengeance of our God; and to comfort all who mourn; to provide for those who mourn in Zion -- to give them a garland instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, the mantle of praise instead of a faint spirit. They will be called Oaks of Righteousness, the planting of the Lord, to display His glory.
