In This Moment

There is enough oxygen in this moment

For the next breath.

Enough grace in this second

To supply all our needs.

 

Courage comes

Not in the backward glance,

Nor in forward flight of fancy,

But in the here and now.

Self-abandoning, Christ-clinging trust

That simultaneously surrenders and stands its ground.

 

For in this present moment,

He is here,

And whatever He requires,

He insists He will supply.

Mindful of all the educators and students who have rounded the corner into the 2013-2014 school year.  Blessings on your year.  Challenges await, that much is sure, but so does provision if you call out to Him for it.  I’m particularly mindful of those of you who are heading into it afraid, alone, weary, or in the context of change.  I think we’ve all been there at one time or another.  Hang in there.  He will supply. 

He will. 

Philippians 4
