cooking and cleaning and caring.
You who are carrying our future in your hands and in your heart,
wiping tears, kissing cheeks,
washing hands, and bottoms, and noses …
behind the screen,
pecking out words in the middle of the night,
tucking away thoughts while working
and raising those Babes ...
fighting to find your place,
find your way,
make a difference …
Even in the busyness of this day, with lists to-do and tasks to complete,
with your mind swirling or heart pumping or emotions rising,
just for moment,
Just stay still for a moment and let my Momma heart, my blogger heart, my living-life-just-like-you heart whisper to yours:
Friend, you are enough.
I know you’re trying hard, reaching out, and some days you don’t know how you’ll make it through,
while living and loving and walking faith-full and faithful,
while serving behind the scenes in the unknown, secret places where no one else sees,
while chasing this dream and pursuing His call,
when you’re tired and weary and you just want to collapse —
you. are. enough.
Whatever you’re chasing, missing, thinking you need, you are already enough.
You are known.
You are chosen.
You are loved.
You are called.
You, sweet sister, are enough.
So today, stop chasing after the wind,
stop trying to be someone or make a name for yourself.
Stop trying harder.
Lean into the One who has called you.
Abide in Him.
He will lead you.
Be faithful where you are, and leave the results to Him.
“Because of the sacrifice of the Messiah, his blood poured out on the altar of the Cross, we’re a free people—free of penalties and punishments chalked up by all our misdeeds. And not just barely free, either. Abundantly free! He thought of everything, provided for everything we could possibly need, letting us in on the plans he took such delight in making. … It’s in Christ that we find out who we are and what we are living for.” (Ephesians 1:7-11 MSG)
