My blog name. I wrestled with writing a blog. I’ve never done anything like this before. Yet, something called. A peace. Even an excitement at what might come at my sitting and waiting and writing it down.
It is a beautiful thing to trust God with something new. Something uncertain.
Most days I have no idea what I will write. And even in the stewing the days prior, thinking over words or ideas not much comes. A lot of mumbled mess. This is how I used to write. In school I had all these ideas and I had such a difficult time picking one and sticking to it. The pressure was too great to just pick one topic.
It’s not a big prayer, but each day when I go to write, I ask God what He wants me to talk about. The better days are ones where I’ve listened a little longer and got the clearer picture. But still I write.
So, today, as I’m getting my car inspected I’m reading Daring to Hope. And I am desperately trying to finish my two books for the month of April, which have proved challenging with kids in school, connect groups and family visiting-you know life.
Daring to Hope has been another life-giving pics this month. I thought I would feel insecure reading about this sweet girl name Katie Davis Majors who has adopted all of these Ugandan girls, single and runs a ministry. I mean that alone intimidates me. But as I read, I hear this real life person. This woman, a mom working this faith thing out each day. Its beautiful and powerful. It has made me appreciate the dark times, motherhood and ministry.
As I’m reading she italicizes this idea just enough for that day. I was struck.
Those words. Just enough for that day.
Those words have meant so much to me in these four months of writing. Asking God each day what He wants from me. What He wants me to be real about, to share a piece of my heart. It is humbling.
He’s calling me to new things, things uncertain, but things that He is going to walk with me through. And I can trust that I have just enough for today.
I don’t need an overflow, just enough.
So I’m sitting on this phrase today.
I’m not exactly sure what our future holds, but I will have just enough each day to live it out.
His promises are true, and He is faithful to provide. We just need to ask.
