There are moments when I feel less than adequate in this big ole world. I can’t figure out which direction to take. For months now I have grappled with putting into intelligent sentences the swirling feelings and often disjointed thoughts that pass through my cluttered mind. I have wondered how did something I once love become such an anxious-laced-labored activity rather than a cathartic release. Somewhere between my beginning and my unexpected longer than normal pause I forgot and started doing what came natural– looking to myself for the solutions.
And what a faulty place that is to look.
We like to believe that we can do things on our own or pull ourselves up by our bootstraps, if you will. But what happens when the bootstraps are tattered or you can not find the strength to pull?
When we come to the end of ourselves we can behold more clearly what has been there all along.
The answer to the heart’s deepest searching … we can find in Him.
He didn’t leave us empty handed but provided it all.
EVERYTHING we need. What is it that you need today?
It doesn’t promise us everything needed for a good and comfy, Pinterest-perfect life but a godly life.
His divine power has given us everything we need
for a godly life through our knowledge of him
who called us by his own glory and goodness
2 Peter 1:3(NIV)
