what's in my heart..not on my coffee table

Emily shared with us what was on her coffee table and as much as I'd like to share what is not on my coffee table because I do

not have one...it is on my kitchen table...I am compelled to share what is in my heart today.  Whether you love home decor blogs,

mommy blogs, foodie blogs or a hodge podge of them all one thing we all have in common as women --  is our hearts.  

.

That is the energy behind all that we do = heart energy.  We love our homes and our families and I'd likely bet we'd do just about anything for them.

I know I would.  It is of utmost importance that we take care of our hearts because it is from the overflow that we live our daily lives out of.

I want to keep this short and to the point as I can so maybe .. like me .. this can simmer in your soul all day

Last night I watched Oprah's interview with T.D. Jakes.  I don't know a whole lot about him but something he shared last night stuck and answered

a question I had been asking

...

Abba...what do I do?  I don't have the means...I trust YOU do..I don't know is all I keep hearing myself say

( and by the way this has taken a looong time to be at this point in the journey..so don't give up! )

You all know the story of the 5 loaves and 2 fish right?

If not you can find it here

Jesus took the 5 loaves and 2 fish the boy brought to feed thousands .. and you know what He did?

He gave thanks for not enough

and then He broke it..

the blessing is in the breaking

HE GAVE THANKS FOR NOT ENOUGH

and then HE BROKE it

( to me being broken isn't a catastrophe or scary thing it is a knowing of my littleness..my can't to His GIANTness and His can..God's ableness

my unableness...His lavish love for me and what He did on the cross when I didn't deserve it..desiring me..ME..YOU to be His child forever and loving me

every.single.day in spite of all my ugly..ugly!  It is His patience towards me..He waits for us as long as it takes and I could go on and on but I am trying to be short...lol! )

:::::::::::::::::::::

ME HERE:  today I am giving thanks for not enough and in trust I am opening myself up to all He is doing new in my heart.

in honor of Father's Day I am reminded that my Father is the God of more than enough.  As I learn to trust Him for a safe place

 I am able to turn to Him first more and more in my everyday circumstances.  I am finding Him faithful.  I am falling in love

more deeply.  

the blessing is in the breaking .. and in the end there was more than enough to feed all those people.

He is more than enough for you too friend..my prayer today for us is that we let these words sit atop our hearts like dew and

slowly seep inso that with awe inspiring mouth gaping open love -- our lives are forever changed.

SO no matter your blogging preference ... may I come along side you and remind you as T.D. Jakes did me last night to take

care of your heart?

now off to clean off my kitchen table...maybe I'll show you that tomorrow;)

much love to you....tiff
