"Before a word is on my tongue you know it completely, oh Lord." Psalm 139:4

Fear, doubt, and lack came knocking at my door this morning. Faced with more work, more changes to my chapters, more words to be added, more editing before my book is ready for the eyes of the publisher. Limited words. Limited resources. Limited time.

Then God so gently reminded me He is limitless. His wisdom far surpasses my own. His words have already been set upon my tongue. His resources are infinite. He knows no limits of time or space or beauty. He dared my imagination to run wild.

Therefore, this day my fear will be replaced with joy from the God of this universe who goes before me to plan and provide from His unfathomable depths of resources and wisdom. I shall drink from His pool of Living Water and pour out His words that overflow from His limitless love. 

"Everyone who asks receives, and he who seeks finds, and to him who knocks it will be opened." Matthew 7:8

"You hold me by my right hand. You will guide me with Your counsel." Psalm 73: 23-24

O Lord, our thoughts, our words, our resources are limited. But you are limitless. Fill us with your Holy Spirit to overflowing that we may dare to dream God-sized dreams. Go before us today, oh God, to prepare a way for us. Fill us with your wisdom and provide for us by your infinite resources so that we might partner with your creativity and bring your kingdom here. Amen.


  1. So beautifully said. Life gets really overwhelming for me sometimes with having and ill husband. Daily I have to remind myself that the Lord will never leave me nor forsake me and that He knows me well and will supply all my needs for the day. That He is all sufficient for me. Trusting Him in the outcome of things and trusting God to lead my every step.
    Thanks for sharing.
