Preschool must have been a good time for me. Although I wasn’t a whiz in school, I am certain in preschool I learned one of my greatest gifts…to share. I LOVE to share a good deal, a good recipe, a good book, a good verse, a good workout, and the list goes on and on. I realized recently my blog is just another attempt for me to share some of my “favorite things”. Most days I don’t know why I blog. It is therapy for me to write. But more than anything I actually think I have a deep deep desire to share.
This is an excerpt from a devotion that I am reading…man, I can relate. Thought it was share worthy!
I desperately need to learn how to live in the present moment. My mind so easily slips into the future, where worries abound. I also spend way too much time analyzing things in the past. Meanwhile, splendors of the present moment parade before me, and I’m too preoccupied to notice. Part of the problem is my tendency to strive for self-sufficiency. Help me to learn to rest in Your sufficiency, depending on You more and more.
You need My grace in order to live in the present. Grace is all about My provision for you, and accepting that goes against the grain of natural tendencies. Do you really believe My grace is sufficient for you? If so, then it makes sense to stop your anxious striving.
My grace is sufficient for every situation you will ever encounter. However, you must learn to receive My provisions by looking to Me continually.
Each day you face a number of situations requiring My help. Moment by moment, I proffer to you the needed assistance. Your part is to recognize your neediness and receive what I offer. My Presence is always with you, providing everything you need. Don’t worry about tomorrow’s needs. My sufficiency is for one day at a time–today!
My grace is sufficient for you, but its sufficiency is for one day at the time.
Sarah Young (Dear Jesus)
“My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.”
2 Corinthians 12:9
“And my God will meet all your needs according to his glorious riches in Christ Jesus.”
“Therefore do not worry about tomorrow, for tomorrow will worry about itself. Each day has enough trouble of its own.” Matthew 6:34
May You Be a Blessing and May you Be Blessed~
