Right Where We Need

“God approaches our minds by receding from them. We can never fully know him if we think of him as an object of capture, to be fenced in by the enclosure of our own ideas. We know him better after our minds have let him go. The Lord travels in all directions at once. The Lord arrives from all directions at once.Wherever we are we find that he just just departed. Wherever we go, we discover that he has just arrived before us.” Thomas Merton
Right Where We Need. enough for now.

Just Walk

Nothing  else. Just walk - watch - trust. Give thanks for it all. enough for now.

Wait

“Then he continued, “Do not be afraid, Daniel. Since the first day that you set your mind to gain understanding and to humble yourself before your God, your words were heard, and I have come in response to them” (Dan 10:12NIV) 

What you have is the key to answered prayer. To gain understanding and to humble self before God. We can’t figure it out - But God. That is very assuring. “Blessed assurance, Jesus is mine- oh what a foretaste for glory divine.” Wait for and watch what God is doing.  enough for now.

Days

 There are so many days to celebrate - even in this virus. On August 15 I celebrated the birthday of my only son, my heart. I celebrated by thanking God for keeping him and growing him into the fine man he is. Then a week later I joined him and his wife in celebrating their anniversary. Yesterday one of my grandsons sent new photos and videos of my only great granddaughter. And I celebrated again. Then my niece called and I got to see my grand nieces and nephews. And I celebrated again.

There are so many things to celebrate. I celebrate family, and life, and love. Find a celebration this day! enough for now.

Watch Who You Follow

 Be very careful who you follow. Make sure what you believe lies up with what you hear. Make sure you know what you believe. Not everyone has your best interests at heart. You must be able to stand your ground. enough for now.

Don’t Worry

Matthew 6:33–34 (NIV):  But seek first his kingdom and his righteousness, and all these things will be given to you as well. Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own. 

I’m just going to sit this here. Nothing else. Let it permeate your spirit today. Be still. enough for now.

You Can Go Home

Too often we answer to names that are not ours. Be clear who you are and you will not answer to anything else. This pandemic has us confused- but you are still God’s child. Look at the story of the prodigal son Luke 15:11-24.
 
This child was assigned three names: prodigal son (one who spends extravagantly, wastefully); lost son; and son.
 His rightful name ’son’ was the name that he was restored to. We act crazy many times, but we can be restored to who we really are - my child. enough for now.
