WHAT WEIGHS YOU DOWN
At times the burden of a few problems can make them feel
like fifteen thousand problems? Before we count ourselves "down and out" over them, we are able to turn and look at
the one standing next to us!
Christ can do the impossible! We simply need to give Him
what we do have and watch Him work it all out!
WHAT'S IN OUR LUNCH PAIL
JOHN 6:11 states, "Jesus took the loaves; and when He had
given thanks, He distributed to the disciples, and the
disciples to them that were set down; and likewise
of the fishes as much as they would.
This was the story of the day Jesus fed the five thousand men, plus women and children. He didn't have to use the loaves. He had made manna fall for the Israelites. Instead, He chose to use the single basket of a small boy.
This small boy's mother had made a basket lunch for her
son and filled it not just with food... but this basket
was filled with FAITH and how God could use it!
I ASK "LORD WHAT DO I HAVE TO GIVE YOU"
So today, it makes me ask myself... "What's in my lunch pail?
Is all I have to offer just a wimpy prayer?" It may be so...
but I will give it all to Jesus!
If all I may have is a meager skill, I will choose to use it for my Lord. He can have all of me, all that I have and all
that I am... even if this world or even I think, that it is
not enough for my Lord and Savior.
WHEN I HAVE NOTHING TO GIVE
There are many days... when I can't walk and
there are days when I can barely move at all. But
if all I have is strength for just one step? I'll say,
"TAKE IT LORD AND USE IT FOR YOUR GLORY!!"
And in the Lord's hands, it becomes enough! It is
more than enough, just as the the little boy's
five barley loaves and two little fishes were
enough to feed the crowd!
God used only three nails and a crude cross to redeem humanity. IF God can turn a basket into a buffet,
don't you think he can do something with just a
little boy's five loaves and two fishes...
GOD CAN DO EVERYTHING WE CAN NOT
I might lose a battle here and there, but I will not lose my
Faith! Nor will I lose the will to keep following
my Lord and Savior!
We all just need to remember, we are never alone and
should Jesus asks us to do or give, "Just what we have..." remember:
HE PROMISES HE WILL DO THE REST!
