What's There?

If you’re focused on what is missing in your life, I hope to change the channel of your brain onto instead what you have.  

I saw this TV commercial during the Olympics and at first it looked like one those extreme sports ads for a sports drink, oh but it's so much more.  Can you catch the secret?

It’s not what’s missing in your life today that should define you.

Maybe you’re thinking, "oh I don’t have a valentine this year!" But what's there? Think of the people the family that you do have to celebrate with. 

To single moms: I have such a heart for single moms especially during holidays like Valentine's Day. Because I am one.  Oh dear one, I just want to encourage you that I get it.  Instead of focusing on the fact that we are missing a man as your head of household to shower you with flowers and chocolate focus on what's there.  Your strength, God's covering, your children, hugs, kisses, candy hearts, and most of all God's never ending unstoppable love.  It's enough.  It's more than enough.

So instead of what’s missing.  What’s there?

Superabundantly

You know that kid who you have to remind over and over again to turn in their homework, bring their lunch box home, and to stay after school for music lessons, and they still forget. 

Well, that kid was me. Plus, now I'm raising one just like me. I love how God does that.  

That type of personality also so easily forgets the love and possibility that is available to us IF we allow God in.  We beat ourselves up when we forget, and make mistakes.  Others are hard on us, and we are even harder on ourselves.  

That must be why I love the Amplified version of the Bible. It uses the full translation of every greek word in the verse. It's perfect if you're like me and need the reminder of God's love drilled into your head over and over and over again! 

"His power that is at work within us, is able to carry out His purpose and do SUPERABUNDANTLY far over and above all that we dare ask or think infinitely beyond our highest prayers, desires, thoughts, hopes, or dreams" -Ephesians 3:20 (Amplified Bible)

You mean it really can be that good? Oh I want that SUPERABUNDANT life God! OH god, I let your POWER work within me...
