Let go of your “should” and your “ought to” and your “need to” and your implied and overt “and” attachments to Jesus. Live like Jesus is enough, and remember you do not earn any part of your redemption.

You don’t need to be qualified by a committee. You are accepted because, simply, He is enough. You can relax. You are loved and you are free.

You don’t need anymore “and” in your life. Jesus is enough.

Jesus is enough.

God alone is enough, yesterday, today, and forever.

Wildflowers, sparrows, you, me, listen: ” What I’m trying to do here is to get you to relax, to not be so preoccupied with getting, so you can respond to God’s giving. People who don’t know God and the way he works fuss over these things, but you know both God and how he works. Steep your life in God-reality, God-initiative, God-provisions. Don’t worry about missing out. You’ll find all your everyday human concerns will be met.” (Matthew 6:31-33 MSG)

In which we numb the light
In which I am brave in an ordinary way
