I recently had a dream that I and another girl were at the beach. We both were working out, but she had a gym membership and emphasized that I didn’t have one. I replied and said that I didn’t need one and that I would still work out. I started running on a beautiful beach. It was amazing cause I was running so tirelessly!
I woke up feeling wonderful and wishing that I could actually run like that, especially on the beach.
JESUS IS ENOUGH
- Others around me have the resources and skills, but all I need is Jesus.
- When I have Jesus and let Him flow through me, my actions will become tireless.
You know, this sounds wonderful, but how often do we exert ourselves trying to do things with our own strength and energy. Its great to do good things, actually it is a command, but our good deeds should come out of a desire to please our Heavenly Father! Jesus desires me, more than the things I do. I have gotten this confused so many times. I do this and that and another thing and then not spend time with God. But God wants me to spend time with Him and then do Great things for Him. When we do this, Jesus will work through us and we don’t need to use our own strength, but lean on our strength giver.
In my dreams – Jesus is enough. In my job – Jesus is enough! In my family – Jesus is enough! In my relationships – Jesus is enough! In the unexpected – Jesus is enough! In the hard things – Jesus is enough! In the good times – Jesus is enough!
