 A young man was getting ready for graduate college. For 
many months he had admired a beautiful sports car in a dealer's 
showroom, and knowing his father could well afford it, he told
him that was all he wanted. 

As Graduation Day approached, the young man awaited 
signs that his father had purchased the car. Finally, on the
morning  of his graduation his father called him into his private 
study. His father told him how proud he was to have such a fine

father was very old, and thought perhaps he should go to him. He

tears,  he opened the Bible and began to turn the pages. As he
read those   words, a car key dropped from an envelope
taped behind the Bible.

It  had a tag with the dealer's name, the same dealer who had the
sports  car he had desired. On the tag was the date of his graduation, 
and the words...PAID IN FULL. 

How many times do we miss God's blessings because they are not 
packaged as we expected?
