When you realize that you can’t do it
on your own
and that maybe you aren’t enough.
Know that the God of Heaven is.
The Great I AM who is an All-Powerful
loves you like a protective mama bear
over her cubs.
I pray for you, the one who wonders
if they are noticed-
the one who feels inadequate
in his responsibilities
the one who struggles with a heavy addiction,
that dark stain which dishonors God.
May you go forth this week
washed in His Word,
dipped in the blood of the Lamb
so you come out
like fresh fallen snow
pure and clean.
You don’t have to be enough
because God is.
That is why Jesus came.
He lived to die so that you might really
start living forever
It’s weaved in and out of history
with a crimson cord of love
and He holds it out for you too.
Salvation is not just for those
who think they are good enough
or strong enough
because they aren’t,
What we deserve and what we are offered
is the difference between life and death.
I pray you know Him.
I pray you see the Christ King
Who will one day make everything right.
It starts first with you.
He touches that heart
battered, bruised and betrayed
by the world,
opens it up and places Himself inside.
My prayer for you
is that you comprehend the deep well of love
lavished on your soul
by the sweetest name on earth: Jesus.
Look for His Handprint
today in everything
good and beautiful.
He points us to Himself that way
so that we can enjoy our Gracious God
and rejoice, again I say rejoice!
Grace upon grace,
