I asked the Lord if He wanted me to say something, and I kept hearing “Without Me you can do nothing”.
I was reminded of two devotionals I just read. From Watch For the Light:
“Jesus observed, “Without me you can do nothing” (John 15:5). Yet we act, for the most part, as though without us God can do nothing. We think we have to make Christmas come, which is to say we think we have to bring about the redemption of the universe on our own. When all God needs is a willing womb, a place of safety, nourishment, and love. “Oh, but nothing will get done,” you say. “If I don’t do it, Christmas won’t happen.” And we crowd out Christ with our fretful fears.”
The other is from Nancy Campbell of Above Rubies’ devotional book 100 Days of Blessing (Day 1):
“God will strengthen you each day, “not the grim strength of gritting your teeth but the glory-strength God gives. It is strength that endures the unendurable and spills over into joy.” (Colossians 1:11, Message)
Prayer (included in Day 1 Devotion):
“Father God, please help me to have an abounding attitude as I mother in my home – abounding in joy, fun, laughter, nurturing, sweetness, love and wisdom. Amen.”
