Blessed assurance. Day 10 of #25daysofgood.

Assurance.

That’s my good today.

Ministry comes in all shapes and sizes for Christians, whether caring for family, having integrity in our day jobs, volunteering, or whatever we do with our hands and hearts for Him.

Sometimes it’s exhausting.

Sometimes we wonder why bother.

Sometimes it feels like no matter how much we try to do the Lord’s will, we just keep getting it all so wrong.

Fear creeps in, with self-doubt right on its heels. 

This verse caught my eye today, as I was praying and thinking and wondering about all the work I do, whether as a nurse or a mama, a wife or a writer. 

I’m such a mess.

I’m so imperfect.

I make mistakes.

But I’m trying.

What a gift to know He sees my work.

What a gift to know He sees my crummy attempts to glorify Him.

What an incredible, amazing gift that He sees the whole world, and still has His eye on little old me.

Our God is good.

So very good.

Letting go…

So yeah, it’s Monday.
The world hangs

heavy
on our hearts.
Life
is about letting

go

and embracing, both
at once,
and how else can we
do that except
with the Lord’s help?
Help to release
with grace
and to accept
with graciousness,
help to remember
that when seasons

change

and we feel
depleted
that He is enough.
He is always enough.
And He is good.
All the time.

 

help. thanks. give.

help, Lord.
thanks and
giving don’t make much
sense when the
love’s taken out
of the mix
and
frost shrivels all the green
and
we can’t do
any of this
getting along
and giving
thanks without
You.
