Marinating

Soaking this in, rolling it around in my brain.  Cause I need it to permeate every part of me.

By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence. 2 Peter 1:3

This is GOOD news, real good.  The issue is believing it when I don’t feel that I have what I need to make it through the day.  Not enough patience.  Not enough smarts.  Not enough grace.  Not enough strength. Not enough love or kindness……

And that’s why I’m meditating on this truth, this week.

By His divine power….everything I need.  EVERYTHING.  E.V.E.R.Y.T.H.I.N.G.  You got it, girl!!  Because He has given it to you!
