This Enough~Seek the Enough

My focus word for right now is “Enough.”

Focus Word Enough

Not in the “I’ve had enough!” sense of the word, which reflects frustration and lack of peace.

And not, in the “Enough is Enough” punitive determinism of push-back.

No, my lens for “Enough” is the bastante in Spanish and the abbastanza in Italian:

Peacefully Sufficient

EnoughWordCloudBecauseofGrace

 Here’s the truest of truths….
You are absolutely enough today….right now. You don’t need to do more, be more, or have more to be ok.
You are beautiful and kind and funny and smart, and the world is so much brighter because you shine your light on it….
Don’t ever ever ever let anything blow your light out….you are just way too important. Thank you for being you.
You are beloved. You always have been, and you always will be. ~Brave Girls Club

Mid Week Question~ January 7~Strength

Do you see how strong you are?

Please, on this first day of the new year, please twirl in honor of you!

Do not let negativity wear off on you

Sometimes very smart people have the ability to debate and negate almost any point of view.

Including the one that nurtures their own soul and their own efforts.

This is not because of grace… remind yourself today how strong you are, because of His Grace and Love.

a word from The Sponsor~January 4

      “God did it!” David exclaimed. “He used me to burst through my enemies like a raging flood!” So they named that place Baal-perazim (which means “the Lord who bursts through”) ~1 Chronicles 14:11 

breakthrough

My resolution is for us to find our individual and collective Baal-perazim in 2015!!

Mid Week Question~December 31~Resolutely Because of Grace

The last post of the year is written in the form of a question.

As you consider resolutions, what about Bible verses?

What is your focus verse for 2015?

“He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.” Ephesians 2:10

Resolve in 2015 not to lose your new-ness and your joy.

The easiest thing of all to lose is your joy. You can lose it with one phone call or email, a letter or conversation. You can watch a commercial on TV and lose your joy. It’s the easiest thing in the world to lose. And a lot of people in a lot of circumstances are conspiring to rob it from you. ~Rick Warren

My mother used to say that JOY means “Jesus Occupies You.”

When “Jesus Occupies You” then other gremlins have no room to wreak havoc.
