Here we are again…another Five Minute Friday with Lisa-Jo Baker and the gang. She prompts, we write. Five minutes (give or take…give a little for me usually), real, raw words. Short. Sweet. Hopefully. 😉 Enjoy!
Big word, mighty is. Well, not a really big word, but it means big. Right?
Powerful. Strong. Brave. Willing. Mighty.
Well tonight I don’t feel very powerful. strong. brave. willing. or mighty.
Sometimes we have minutes, days, weeks, years that suck the life right out of us and leave us anything but mighty. Much less than mighty.
And then the thought of the Mighty One comes to mind.
The One who gave me this life. To live free.
He never meant it to be about me. My wants. My needs. My desires. My might.
He gave me this life to be about Him. His will. His love. His ways. His Might.
Jesus died in humility so that in three days His Might would be revealed and never questioned again.
When He died and rose again, His Might took over for my failings. As a person. As a parent. As a wife. As a friend.
In His Might, I can prevail. Not because I am. Because He is. The Great I Am.
No matter what gives you the thought you are un-mighty today, there is One whose Might can fill that void.
It’s not up to us to be what He wants to be for us. What He’s already proved He can do in us. If we let Him.
We have a mighty call alright. To stop the fight and give into His Might.
Your Mighty Mess,
And if you have a mother, know a mother or “am” a mother…don’t miss Lisa-Jo’s book “Surprised by Motherhood.” I’ll never be the same for reading it. And I’ll recommend it to every woman I know. Mother or not. Get it here now. Go. Now. You’ll be sending me chocolate because you love it that much. (Vanilla Lindt preferred. Thanks!)
