Sometimes Things Don’t Mean What We Think They Mean

One recent morning my daughter struggled with deciding to play basketball. On the one hand she wanted to play, but on the other hand she enjoyed having more free time after school. She was also very concerned with being able to get her school work done if she played basketball.

We went over the options, and I asked her how she could get her homework done during the school day. She said she only gets 30 minutes for study hall, implying that it isn’t enough time. So, I pointed her to how Jesus fed thousands of people from just 2 fish & 5 loaves of bread.

As she reflected on that, a smile came across her face, showing how it was a light bulb moment for her.

No matter what you are going through, know that who you are is not defined or determined by your circumstances and situations.

We were created from the Source of life. We are not separate from that Power, therefore we lack nothing.
