Whatever You Have Is Enough

The boy only had five loaves and two fish but In our Lord’s hands, it was enough to feed the multitudes. He blessed it and broke it and then performed His awesome miracle to feed 5000 people. So, hey you there, wherever you are, whatever you have today is enough! In the Lord’s hands, you might be amazed at what He can do with it.

Don’t be surprised if He blesses it and breaks it first ‘cuz He uses broken things to multiply His Kingdom! When you feel you have nothing but brokenness to offer, that’s when you have everything to give. 

Beautiful soul, the more broken you are, the more useful you are in His kingdom work. ~k

“Taking the five loaves and the two fish and looking up to heaven, He gave thanks and broke the loaves. Then He gave them to His disciples to set before the people. He also divided the two fish among them all.”
Mark 6: 41

“The number of men who had eaten were five thousand.” Mark 6:44

Broken and Blessed

So I know it’s a big world out there and a fragile one with a lot of broken pieces scattered in all directions. A lot of broken people and a lot of Humpty Dumpties that have fallen to their despair from walls of pride! Some beautiful souls have fallen, paralyzed by fear and insecurities and some hurting souls, have fallen prey to the world and their present circumstances. So many broken hearts stand in need of repair. So much brokenness ~ so much pain! Yet all the king’s horses and all the king’s men can’t put them back together again. The souls at stake are ‘our’ souls, precious souls and beautiful souls and some are the innocent souls of children caught in the cross fire and strife of it all. What are their options? How did it all begin and where does it all end? Will it ever end? Tender and compassionate hearts can help but our all knowing God and the One who specializes in transforming hearts and lives and making beauty from ashes can lead you through it! It took some time to get there so it will take some time to get out but a decision to walk with God in obedience is your best option. We don’t have to be perfect to be blessed and we don’t have to be perfect to be used by Him. So for those failures that haunt your soul ~ give them over and choose today to make a difference regardless of your circumstances. God is in the business of getting us out of deep trouble and leading us into the safety of His home and the shelter of His arms. Rest there ~ with Him and find peace for this troubled hour and troubled heart.

The Sovereign, omnipotent King and the one True God ~ creator of life itself, has all the brilliant credentials and the awesome mastermind to put you back together again. Begin now! Be clay in His hands! Walk with Him and listen to His counsel. ~k

Isaiah 61: 1-3
The Spirit of the Sovereign LORD is on me, because the LORD has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners,
to proclaim the year of the LORD’s favor and the day of vengeance of our God, to comfort all who mourn,and provide for those who grieve in Zion– to bestow on them a crown of beauty instead of ashes, the oil of gladness instead of mourning, and a garment of praise instead of a spirit of despair. They will be called oaks of righteousness, a planting of the LORD for the display of His splendor.

Rest In His Shadow

So you feel undone, bent and broken, shattered and frazzled? What now? Where do you turn in your moments of it? In the long hours of it? In the days, the weeks, and the months of it? Maybe the years of its never-ending chaotic twists and turns where it relentlessly hunts you down to gnaw you apart much like a wild animal stalks it’s prey? The heavy heart it carries makes it so difficult to move forward ~ to even take a small step let alone make it to some place of destination. Maybe it’s depression has you caught in its web, entrapped you in its sticky circle of poison, relentless to let you go! Yes ~ for sure ~ What now? Sight and insight is limited with high walls ~ dark and cold! Choices are difficult! Thinking is impossible! Who can see through it? Well, right there, and right now, know that you are loved by a God who is right there and right now beside you, and He’s ready to shelter you under His wing, hide you in the cleft of the rock and love you just for who you are in the mess and heap of confusion you feel inside. He’s ready to carry you when you can’t move and bless you through the good and bad. He’s ready to grace you over the next step, the next hurdle, and through the deepest and steepest of valleys ~ just because He cares!

When you can’t see past the shadows ~ rest in His, and trust Him there ~ right there in the dark, for the son still shines illuminating brightly in the shadows! So hey, beautiful one, grasp the hem of His garment of love as He brushes by there even when it’s not felt nor understood ~ because it never will be understood. His love goes beyond anything we can imagine! It’s just the way God is and it’s His perfect presence there right now before you ~ for you!

Psalm 91: 1
“He who dwells in the shelter of the Most High will rest in the shadow of the Almighty. I will say of the LORD, “He is my refuge and my fortress, my God, in whom I trust.” Surely he will save you from the fowler’s snare and from the deadly pestilence.”

Ephesians 3:17-20
And I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts as you trust in Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvellous love. And may you have the power to understand, as all God’s people should, how wide, how long, how high, and how deep His love really is. May you experience the love of Christ, though it is so great you will never fully understand it. Then you will be filled with the fullness of life and power that comes from God. Now all glory to God, who is able through His power to accomplish infinitely more than we might ask or think

A Soul Friend

So when things just aren’t the way they seem, and when things just don’t go the way you planned, You gotta know it’s all ok anyway right? That medical diagnosis, just wasn’t what you thought it might be! That bank account that wasn’t topped off like you thought, and come right down it, it left high you and dry with huge demands nipping at your heels. That friend, who, well, turns out, wasn’t a friend after all and rather than supporting you ~ betrayed you, and just made for a terrible, miserable, very bad day! Yeah, so when you’re turned over to the wolves, shoved under the bus, or hung out to dry, life can pretty upsetting and it can rankle the spirits a bit, not to mention the hurt and the broken that comes of it. The hurt and the broken that you’re left to deal with and mend, somehow, someway!

Well, friend, there is a Soul Friend when everyone else go out. There is a Care Giver; a Sustainer, and a Provider when the bank account runs low and the cupboards are bare. There is a soul – saver and a mercy – maker when the underside of the bus is rusty and the ravenous wolves torment!

Oh yes, There is a Protector and One who is faithful, even in the hard places. David inspired by the Spirit of God, writes wisdom into Psalm 138 for all of us to read and learn from and in verse 7 he states, “Though I am surrounded by troubles, You will protect me from the anger of my enemies. You reach out Your hand, and the power of your right hand saves me. Ahh, then comes the thrilling realization for David, when he continues on to say, even in his hardship, “The LORD will work out His plans for my life–for Your faithful love O LORD, endures forever. Don’t abandon me, for You made me.”

Yeah! Our Lord has this too, whatever it is that has you, and when you’re looking at the gruesome underside of the bus, you can know, even there, even though He maybe didn’t cause it, He allowed it for a purpose and uses it for your good and His glory! Phew that’s a perfect thought for us right now!

So hey, beautiful you, right there where you are, you can know He cares and cares deeply! Abandonment isn’t in His vocabulary. He won’t leave you, just because you messed up! He won’t turn on you or reject you. That’s not what He does. Trust Him in your trouble and hide out in His presence. It’s so safe there!
