“Do what you can, with what you have, where you are.”
— Theodore Roosevelt
Teddy Roosevelt was onto something! Hmmm . . . Was Teddy thinking of me when he said those words? No, while family folklore may lay claim to our being related, he couldn’t possibly have been thinking of me. However, I find those words packed with practical information and wisdom. How often have we heard (or said) “but what can I do?” However, in Christ, we have all we need. He equips us for the work He has for us. He places us where He wants and needs us to be. He speaks to us, holds us close and hugs us while surrounding us with His grace and blessings. He desires to make our burdens light, if we’re willing to hand them over to Him. He leads us in all we are called to do. Popular magazines may try to make me feel like I lack much, but in Christ I lack nothing! As I see it, Jesus and Teddy Roosevelt are telling us the same thing!
Yes, Lord. I’m listening and I’m ready to serve! Lead on!
