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
Beyond impossible circumstances today? It’s ok! God looks after those! He holds them in nail imprinted hands so that you can free yours from the weight of it all. There’s no need to fret because ~ the most awesome thing? He does the impossible! He performs the miracles out of the emptiness and impossibility of it all. Take it to Him! Give it to Him and tread lightly in His footsteps as He guides your way! That issue isn’t yours, It’s His and He has a plan for it, even when it all appears like crumpled hope and a torn page out of your story. He’s guided many through the consequences of bad choices, the bitterness of brokenness, and through the dimmed lights of lost causes. He uses those very things to propel His plan and fulfill His goal to bring you to His preferred place, customized just for you. Don’t you know it? That just what He does!! He did it for our Biblical patriarchs and heroes and beautiful soul, all is well ~ He’s still the same today and He’ll do it for you ~ just for you!!
Trust Him and don’t try to figure it out ‘cuz even in our greatest thoughts of Him, He is greater still!
“Let me hear Your loving kindness in the morning; For I trust in You; Teach me the way in which I should walk; For to You I lift up my soul.”
“I will bless the LORD who has counseled me; Indeed, my mind instructs me in the night. I have set the LORD continually before me; Because He is at my right hand, I will not be shaken.”
Oh don’t we all need a big heap of God’s love today? Just to wrap us up tightly and carry us over the rough spots that come along. All the things hoped for seem to transfer to the back burner while things not hoped for nor even asked for come a calling. Yeah, the enemy can throw some pretty difficult stuff into our pathway and it keeps us on our toes for sure and make us wonder how we’ll make it through; but remember, our faithful God is so faithful and walks the same road with us. He’s rich in mercy! He’s compassionate in care, and perfect in love. His eye is on you and You are highly favoured in His economy. He heals! He mends! He repairs and He protects and that’s what we need today for sure. Yeah, just one big heap of it all to take it’s place right in our midst and give us a springboard to propel us on for His glory! So, beautiful soul, whatever has you down ~ whatever has come a calling that wasn’t asked for, you might not realize it yet, but it’s been perfected just for you and customized just for your needs today. He’s got it. Enjoy God’s faithfulness through it and let Him direct your path. Be blessed under His divine protection through the testing time and watch His miracles unfold.
“God blesses those who patiently endure testing and temptation.”
James 1: 12
“The grasslands of the wilderness become a lush pasture and the hillsides blossom with joy.”
Psalm 65: 12
So, we’re all in this together ~ you and I. There’s a new day a dawning! The morning comes and brings its moments with it. Little moments, big moments, happy and sad moments and so many moments that we have to encounter along the way. We can choose to make the best of them or we can give up the fight and crumble beneath them. We can sit and toss it all through our minds with worry while we miss the blessings or we can simply trust God for the outcome and enjoy the minutes as they present themselves.
So yes, beautiful you ~ Here we sit ~ together ~ you and I, in our little corners of the world ~ our far corners of the world, each with our stuff and some happiness and some heaviness of heart. Financial pressure, friends, relationships, church issues, work related situations, ministry situations, family issues, time pressures, kid problems and the list is long and the battles very real in our little worlds. But, it’s also a new day to praise the Lord ~ and beautiful soul ~ it’s a new day to be thankful in that heart of yours for all that you have and all that God will do for you today. There are sweet miracles tucked into unhappy corners and hopeless corners and tight spots that you just want to disappear from your life and dissipate into oblivion. So ~ stand firm, hold fast, and hang on to the promises of God! Claim the victory. Walk on undaunted by the unexpected events that may come along to discourage and defeat. Ask God for His direction in this moment and toss the worries aside to find the joy of divine miracles in your journey with God today. Going deeper with Him allow Him to serenade you with sweet serendipitous through the daily moments. Look under the rocks, the stones and the just plain difficult places! You just might find something awesome directly from His hand! That’s what he does! I love how He does it!
“Praise be to the LORD God, the God of Israel, who alone does marvelous deeds.”
“You are the God who performs miracles; you display your power among the peoples.”
