April 30, 2013 Short and Sweet and Insufficient

Short and Sweet and Insufficient

This morning, I asked my husband to read today’s “Jesus Calling” by Sarah Young while I got ready for work.

WHEN SOME BASIC NEED IS LACKING– time, energy, money–consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is an opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependence. When you begin a day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment. This is where you are meant to love.–in the present; it is the place where I always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me.

The truth is that self-sufficiency is a myth perpetuated by pride and temporary success. Health and wealth can disappear instantly, as can life itself. Rejoice in your insufficiency, knowing that My Power is made perfect in weakness.

We both laughed—you know how that goes–  and said, “Wow! We must REALLY be blessed.”

Today’s lesson– rejoicing in my insufficiency. Because, to be perfectly honest, we have nowhere else to go, and we know who holds the keys to life.

May your days be filled with dependency on Jesus.
