"Just Enough"

















As I gazed upon the beautiful February "full moon" I saw abundant blessings. The darkness lit "just enough" for me to see! Often, I want to see farther into the future. However, GOD desires my focus! He gives me "just enough" light for the path HE has so delicately and carefully placed me on. As I continue to take the next steps on this journey, I will be more appreciative of the here and now and leave the future to HIM who loves me/us most!

Where are you on your journey?

Are you trying to gaze to far into the future losing sight on what HE has for you now?

By HIS mercy and in the grip of HIS grace,

Andrea

This is so true, dear Andrea. I used to worry way too much....I am with you, I have to live now and trust in Him now, in order not to miss His bounty in my life. He is in control of it all.
You are such a blessings,

Nope! Living in the here & now & struggling thru it all ... I know HE is going to lead us on this path of concerns & make all right in His own way.

Another wonderful share of your precious words & insight, sweet Andrea.

Are you at the beach now?
Have a beautiful week ~
TTFN ~
Hugs of love,

Thank you for this post today. I tend to look too far into the future and worry about things, but when I let Him direct my steps and just live for Him today, I'm so much better off as we all are.

I have definitely been guilty of trying to see into the future. I have also been guilty of dwelling in the past.

Thank you for the reminder to focus on what God has for me today!

Love you...

I am living one day at a time as my husband waits for a heart transplant.

Howdy Sweet Friend
Oh my it seems we are always trying to see just a wee bit more than we should .
All the time knowing God has everything under control and has a perfect solution to our circumstances.
I am in a dark place but if God were to turn on even a whisper of light too soon it would blind me .
I am so glad God allows us to crawl, take baby steps as well as run and leap and climb.
Prayers and hugs coming your way .
Love from Texas
Until next time
Happy Trails

Oh goodness I never try to look into the future. That's not for me to know. Besides I like to be surprised by what God has in store for me!
Love Di ♥

On my journey I am learning to trust. To release and trust God that He is in charge and all is well. Sandra

Andrea:
I had to learn that God has His reasons for not allowing us to
see very far into the future. He chooses His way because it's what's best for us.

This is beautiful, Andrea! Just stopping by with a hug to say hello. I'm so out of the loop, but you are always in my prayers. I do hope you are well.

Much love to you!

What a thoughtful and well-illustrated concept! If I look TOO far ahead, I panic. Best to stay in the "light" God has given me...
