my little vs. my Enough

IMG_8121

The kids and I drove Scott to work and, on the way home, listened to the Jesus Storybook Bible on CD. [Kindle version is 99 cents right now, I just learned!]

These two parts struck me: “Jesus knew it didn’t matter how much the little boy had. God would make it enough. More than enough.”

And, “It was the strangest thing, no matter how much they broke off — there was always more. And more. And more.”

Made me think Jesus is reminding me that He takes our little (energy, time, thread we’re hanging on with) and makes it enough.

He says, “Bring Me what you have.” And then, with a knowing smile, “Watch this.”

Because He is our Enough.

I’m praying that He allows me to see Him in that reality today. And then again tomorrow when I look at the little I have and see it’s again not enough for what my day demands. But He is my Enough.

As Scott said tonight that I keep thinking about, chewing on: “God’s greater than our capacity.”

    How I need to be reminded of how BIG He is. My peanut sized brain can’t fathom His abilities.
