Sometimes I stress about not keeping up with friends when life is crazy. When all I can manage is a text or a Facebook message, or a random like on Instagram, to make sure they know I haven’t forgotten them. Sometimes they won’t even know, but I sent up an arrow prayer for them instead.
I feel worse when it is someone close to me that I can’t fit in. Someone that deserves more. Someone that, in a perfect world, would get a candle lit dinner, scintillating conversation, and hours of love making but gets a quick cuddle instead.
The wonderful thing is that those who love me know, that it won’t always be this way, they appreciate the moments and they look forward to picking up where we left of the moment things settle down. They know this is as close as we’ll get to perfection, for the time being.
I have learned that God is gracious like that. He is glad just to be kept in the loop sometimes. He is secure in our relationship. He is humble. He is generous.
It is only me who is tempted sometimes to do nothing at all, because just a little cannot possibly be enough. But God is not like that.
All God needs is for us to turn, towards Him. Just our face is enough. All He needs, is us to come to Him. Just showing up is enough. All he asks is that we do not refuse him. Just saying ok is enough.
In return, He gives. He gives us all of Himself. He gives us perfect rest and He gives us life to the full.
Isaiah 45:22 says,
“Turn to me and be saved, all the ends of the earth! For I am God, and there is no other.
Matthew 11:28 says,
Come to me, all who labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.
John 5:40 says,
Yet you refuse to come to me that you may have life.
Just fitting God in, is better than leaving Him out altogether. It is enough, God will do the rest. He does not need our performance. Just us.
I encourage you today to fit God in. In amongst whatever you must do, not in amongst what you will put off doing.
Do not be afraid or ashamed to give God just you. You are enough. Just turn up, let Him bless you. Just turn your face to Him, let Him smile at you. Just say, “Ok,” let Him give you life to the full!
Be blessed, be encouraged, comment, like or share this post and pray today.
Lots of love,
