Today has been one of those days that just feels like never.
I will NEVER get enough sleep.
My three-year old will NEVER potty train.
My seven-year old will NEVER learn to read.
I will NEVER get certain health issues under control.
My house will NEVER stay clean.
I will NEVER be able to stay caught up on my Bible reading.
There will NEVER be enough time to get it all done.
I will NEVER get that quiet time and personal space I crave.
I will NEVER stop struggling with impatience and expectations.
There will NEVER be enough time, enough money, enough of ME to go around.
It just feels like never, never, never.
Today, I don’t feel equipped to handle it all. To be good enough. To be anything enough.
By faith, I choose to believe that I am equipped. That HE is good enough. That HE is everything.
That HE will never stop being enough and everything.
That HE will never stop working on and in and through me.
That this day matters; and that all the little stuff that right now feels like big stuff, really isn’t.
Tonight, I will go to bed saying, God is faithful and that is enough.
Tomorrow, I will wake up and say, I will NEVER stop trying.
Because that’s the only “never” that is really worth saying.
