More Than Enough!

October 16, 2014
My eyes fail, looking for your promise; I say, “When will you comfort me?”  
Psalm 119:81-83

Are you seeking  the Lord’s promise, His comfort?  I am.   Comfort presents a soothing image like this perhaps:

bedroom comfort

 The sun is streaming through my bedroom window, the sounds of birds are singing and children at play outside while rushing off to school  .  . . the afghans, quilts, pillows and things I’ve created provide comfort.  I am, at this moment designing something of that sort to provide comfort to someone I love.  I know my gift will be appreciated.

Still, it will not be quite enough.  We cannot, in our humanness, provide “enough.”  As I read what the Psalmist writes “when will you comfort me” I am convicted.  For, like him I know the Lord’s promises, know they are real, know they are mine, and know they bring me more than enough  . . . as only He can.

“Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God; believe also in me. John 14:1-3 My heart is troubled.  But I am working on that because He loves me.  Just as the throw I design and make for the one I love will provide warmth and comfort, so then will the Lord provide in much greater ways than my love can do.  So, I will stitch, I will pray, I will listen, and I will wait.  I already know how my story ends, for He already won for me the victory!  

Thoughts Over Morning Coffee & Robert Louis Stevenson

October 15, 2014

RLS has been a favorite of mine since I was a little girl holding my first of his books, a Little Golden Book my Mom got for me. She and I quoted those sweet verses all the time. He is how I discovered poetry at the age of 3 and why I love it . . . and why I have been a writer and poet since I could hold a pencil. He said:

Don’t judge each day by the harvest you reap but by the seeds that you plant. – Robert Louis Stevenson -
