What's in your tool kit? What's in your hand that you can use to propel your life's purpose forward? There's always something there to start with.
"Everything we could ever need for life and complete devotion to God has already been deposited in us by his divine power. For all this was lavished upon us through the rich experience of knowing him who has called us by name and invited us to come to him through a glorious manifestation of his goodness." -2 Peter 1:3
When preparing for a shoot, I often sit and wait for inspiration either in word or flashes in my imagination. As a "BIG" picture thinker, I usually think that I lack the necessary elements to accomplish the vision. Truthfully, I work my blog with "limited" resources. So oftentimes, there's no extra to go out and pick up anything. But God always reminds me, "Everything you need to accomplish this task is ALREADY here!" And sure enough, He enables me to carry out a creative concept using what is already in my "tool" kit!
Have you ever felt like there was not enough...of ANYTHING?!?! Not enough time, not enough money, not enough strength??? Me too!
Just recently, I had reached the end of my rope. And so I thought! I told God, I have nothing left. I can't go another step. I'm exhausted. (Honestly, this is NOT the first time I said this to God. Yet, I'm still here!) I headed to a women's bible study that night, not knowing that my whole life was about to be shifted for the better. I had just enough strength, just enough faith, to get to a place where the answer to my prayers were awaiting me. I have found this scripture to ring true over and over again in my life:
"He gives power to the faint and weary, and to him who has no might He increases strength [causing it to multiply and making it to abound]." -Isaiah 40:29 AMPC
