Don’t you just love Monday mornings? Nah, me neither. This week my calendar is packed with the Thrive Conference at Bayside of Granite Bay and Justin’s Birthday on Friday. He is going to be 12 years old, my little miracle child. When I look at a week like this, the question that hovers is, “How am I going to get everything done?” Okay, I ask myself this question no matter what my week looks like. Nonetheless, how am I going to do it?
Let me tell you how: one thing at a time. One day at a time. I don’t know if I will get everything done I want to, but I know that I have a Savior that will walk with me through it. I have a Shepard to guide me and give me what I need, when I need it.
” When some basic need is lacking- time, energy, money- consider yourself blessed. Your very lack is opportunity to latch onto Me in unashamed dependance. When you begin a day with inadequate resources, you must concentrate your efforts on the present moment. This is where you are meant to live- in the present; it is the place where I will always await you. Awareness of your inadequacy is a rich blessing, training you to rely wholeheartedly on Me.”
– Jesus Calling , April 30th by Sarah Young
What a refreshing perspective. Yes, today I will be unashamedly dependent on God.
For some of you, your days are not busy with work but they are busy with waiting.
For some of you, your days are not filled with places to go but are filled with the mundane monotony of daily duties at home.
For some of you, your challenge comes not in working hard but in resting well.
No matter what your day is filled with, busy or slow, going or staying, working or resting…you have a Savior who longs for you to lean on Him. To take it moment by moment and allow Him to give you what you need when you need it.
How are you going to do what you need to do today?
By taking it one thing at a time, one day at a time, one moment at at time in unashamed dependance on God.
Oh, to see your lack as a great blessing- that is when the Kingdom of God is truly released in your life!
“He has given us all that it takes to live in our present circumstances and relationships”

The Lord is my shepherd, I lack nothing.
(Psalm 23:1 NIV)
What a blessing you are to me and I appreciate every comment you leave -it is a connecting point I don’t take for granted. Thank you and have a blessed unashamedly God dependent day!
