The Sky’s the Limit.
Or is it?
There are no limits – except the ones we make up.
There is no dimmer that can be placed on His glorious light.
D.L. Moody said , “The world has yet to see what God will do WITH and FOR and THROUGH and IN and BY the man who is fully and wholly consecrated to Him”.
How bright is your life?
Are you expecting God to show up and demonstrate what only He can?
When I get overwhelmed, and tired, and weary of being bright, He reminds me -
“Jenny, there are no limits. Live like that!”
In marriage, I want to scream loud and proud that marriage is worth the work – it’s our legacy. It matters. I want the message of my love for my husband to be severely bright in a dark world of wrecked marriages and heavy heartaches.
In motherhood, with each of my five kids, I want to be an example – sincere and struggling every day to say - God is enough for every failure and all our shame. I want my son to know, when he comes to me with his mistakes, that my Jesus is Bright – and His light shines over our dark failures.
In ministry, as a pastor’s family, we know God is limitless and that He is leading Covenant Fellowship to shine brighter in our community and in our world. And it’s scary, exhausting, and overwhelming. And there are days, we havent’ a clue because the needs are so much bigger than we are. So we trust. Because it’s His Bright Light we carry. Not ours.
In believing God for more – I am relying on His power to continue boldly telling my story. As Tammy and I wait for our book, “Inseparable”, to be discovered by the right publisher, we believe in what we cannot see. We know that it’s His story within us that makes the world brighter. So, we trust Him, and hold onto the good work He started.
And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work. 2 Corinthians 9:8
Mark Batterson, author of “The Circle Maker” says:
I’ve always felt like I’m in over my head.
But that’s when God has you right where He wants you.
Because it forces you to live in raw dependency upon God and raw dependency is the raw material out of which God does His greatest miracles.
If you feel like you are equal to the task then your task isn’t big enough!
When we only swim in the shallow end, we don’t need His Light or His power. We’re fine on our own.
But when we jump in the deep water, we get scared and realize – we do need His Light.
Deep water faith requires our Deep Water God to show up.
Live like that! Get your Light on and Swim!
Where in your life are you needing God and His Light to carry you? What dream are you seeing as your deep water swim?
