Quietly I make my way to the couch, sinking deep into its soft cushions. Pulling my feet up and behind me, I drag the old quilt over my legs, and I sip on coffee black as the night. This is my thinking time, my time to wrestle through all of the thoughts that run rampant through my mind, causing my sleep to stay somewhere in the night – waiting to be beckoned to my side.
Questions fling freely from my mind to my only hope for answers. The One, the ONLY true Superstar, Morning Star, and my true North Star. Because there are days in everyone’s life that it seems all our dreams have turned into pumpkins and we lose a glass slipper; and you wonder if you are enough.
What is the plan?
Where do I go from here?
How do I accomplish all that you have place in my heart?
Am I the only one who feels these things? Hears these words? Wants this change?
Am I enough?
Where, where do I belong?
The answer comes as warm as the blanket that covers me, and sweeter than the coffee I sip:
You belong to Me.
My Grace is sufficient.
My Power is made perfect in weakness.

My Power is made perfect in weakness. Yes, this. I know it well and it’s always enough.
Thank you Alia! I’m praying for you as you and your mom journey! You are amazing – A Star!
Diane, When I woke this morning the hamster wheel of my mind could not stop. This might be okay on a Monday morning but, oh Lord, not on a Saturday. There are so many needs – tugs of those around me and also the personal ones deep inside. Thank you for the words that remind me He is strong when I am weak. Bonnie
Bonnie, You are such a beautiful woman. Your gentle spirit gives such comfort even without a word. Thank you for taking the time to leave a comment! Love you, Girl!
