IN THE WAIT FOR A MIRACLE, DON'T MISS THE MANY BLESSINGS RAINING DOWN
Have you ever been holding out hope for a big breakthrough, one that would take a miracle, and been gripped by the feeling of lack? Your chest tightens, muscles tense, thoughts run around scattered. Somehow, all we can see in those moments is everything that is missing and the weight easily causes a downward spiral.
In those moments, emotionally grasping-for-air, the gentle whisper of hope comes, dancing across our furrowed brow. But do we listen? It's so easy to miss, sometimes we get such a subtle and unconscious kick out of worrying, that it's hard to stop our train of thought long enough to hear.
A little life-hack I turn to in those moments, is to take a break from the panic and list out the many mini-blessings that I have received that day, that week.
Assuming that God is linear, and only has one way to provide for my needs is usually the error in my thinking. There may be perceived lack in a certain area but looking at the other ways He has overwhelmed me with gifts is a beautiful reminder that He works through every area of my life. Growing my heart, growing my mind and strength, increasing my capacity to work, create, and give.
If all else fails, I turn to the things I can touch - opening up the fridge and seeing even one piece of food, taking a shower and feeling the warm water flowing with ease, feeling the hug of my sweet daughter.
Oh no, there is no lack. He is providing for us constantly.
My job is simply to stop worrying and start releasing.
