All I gotta do is share publicly about my prayer life to be driven to my knees.
All I gotta do is talk about my kids’ relationships with each other to begin to feel desparate that they’ll never talk to each other once grown.
All I gotta do is try and I’ll be sure to face a challenge. It’d be easier not to but,
“You must do the thing you think you cannot do.”
Sometimes I let my own desire for comfort get in the way and ask “why?”. Why must I do the thing I’m sure I can’t? The answer, as comfortable as lemon juice on a paper cut, but as true as the sun rises in the east: if you are given something, it’s not really yours until you give it away.
I haven’t just been given an opportunity but more so an obligation, to give what I’ve been given. We’re blessed to be a blessing. What do YOU need to give today?
Earth’s crammed with heaven,
And every common bush afire with God,
But only he who sees takes off his shoes;
The rest sit round and pluck blackberries.
—Elizabeth Barrett Browning
