Friend, sometimes I just need to write
Without worrying if it’s right or not.
Would you believe there’s an app for that?
Well there’s a place for that anyway.
Over at Lisa-Jo’s.
So I will join others and write unabashedly
for five minutes time.
On one word alone:
Too much. Not enough. Just right. Need more. Cut back. Have to lose. That’s good.
My mind whirls at the thought of trying to show my child the invisible measuring cup of life. These checks and balances we hold ourselves to in order to determine our worth. Our successes. Our failures. And I can’t help but wonder:
Who determines enough?
For isn’t that what we all strive for? Isn’t that word what determines our adequacy?
So how do I show him we have it all wrong? How do I explain to my 4 year-old impressionable boy that with Christ, we all measure up? With grace, we’re all more than enough?
For our weakness merely exemplifies His strength.
Our failures give way to revealing His mercy.
You see, my child, in this upside down Kingdom of Grace, we take the bottom out of that measuring cup. We hold it out. And we wait expectantly. We watch Him pour. Every day. We let it overflow.
And we see. That No matter. However. Despite all. In spite of. Wherever. It’s all good.
You’ll always measure up. You’ll always be enough.
Because you’re His. And He Is.
He’s more than enough.
How about you? How do you determine your worth? I’d love to hear.
Thanks for sharing your time with me.
Say, are we friends on Facebook? I’d love to be…
