When You Don’t Have Much

It’s a mercy love doesn’t have to be felt to be true.

We are called to “love the Lord your God with all your heart with all your soul with all your mind and with all your strength.” (Luke 10:27)

But as the widow who gave two pennies has taught us, our all doesn’t need to be much.

Ya’all I’ve been feeling tapped. out. Like running out of patience at 10am and having to swallow my annoyance for the other 12 hours until bedtime.

But to add to all of that was the SHAME I felt for not feeling better, more loving and patient. Why couldn’t I DO more around the house? Why couldn’t I FEEL like loving on my kids? So I’ve been floating in this dark shame and self loathing cloud of “not good enough”.

Until tonight.

I went to adoration and confession and was reminded that God does not call us to feel loving-we just have to love, even if it’s not pretty 😬

So even if you barely have any heart, soul, mind and strength left, give Him what you’ve got, even if it’s two pennies worth-He knows how to multiply it. ❤️

This week let’s release the shame and own our lack and offer it to Him.

Praying for you this week. Please continue to pray for me!
