On Fridays, Lisa-Jo provides the prompt, and we dive in headfirst with hearts and words. It’s a little game called Five Minute Friday, played by an amazing community of writers seeking His hand in the everyday. Won’t you join us?
Today’s prompt is ENOUGH.
– GO –
The house is a mess and the kids are fighting and I’m tired, so tired. The dog peed on the floor again and I haven’t called my mother in a week and the laundry is piled up from camp and how will I ever catch up?
On the days I feel behind – drowning in do more, be more – I remember it’s not just about me. Like the one little boy in a sea of five thousand plus with only five loaves and two fish, like the woman at the synagogue with only two coins for the offering, Jesus makes me enough. He is interested in the state of my heart, not what I bring to the table. He doesn’t need my hands to do his will, but He invites me to participate in the wonder of blessing that always makes scarcity enough.
It is His strength that sees me through each day, His faithfulness that presses on when I feel overwhelmed. He asks for my willing heart and provides more than enough to make up the deficit. His storehouse never runs dry, never feels the pangs of emptiness or the impact of loss.
Lord, help me remember that this life is not just about me and my small offering, but about the God who takes my lack and makes it overflow with His goodness.
And my God will meet all your needs
according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.
~ Philippians 4:19
God is our refuge and strength,
an ever-present help in trouble.
Therefore we will not fear, though the earth give way
and the mountains fall into the heart of the sea,
though its waters roar and foam
and the mountains quake with their surging.
~ Psalm 46:1-3
– STOP –
Friends, today you are enough for whatever you face
when you look to Him for your strength!
