Each Tuesday, my dear friend Ann Voskamp and I are writing a series of letters about loving Jesus and others with our words. We’d love to hear your heart too. Will you join us?
It snowed a little last night. The white is spread out like icing over the brown of leaves. It brings to mind another kind of icing on another kind of morning when you and I shared a sweet, sticky cinnamon roll in a tiny bakery in the center of my town. Do you remember that?
Earlier this morning I thought about all the hungry hearts in the world that need to be fed with words. It felt as if God might as well be asking me to care for every snowflake outside the window.
And then it seemed He whispered, “Just offer what you have. I will make up the difference.”
Yes, of course!
The loaves and fish.
You know that story. It’s the one where Jesus is teaching a huge, hungry crowd and there’s nothing to feed them. All anyone has to offer is five loaves and two fish. But in the hands of Jesus…
They all ate and were satisfied, and the disciples picked up twelve basketfuls of broken pieces of bread and fish. Mark 6:42-43
Yes, in the hands of Jesus a little is a lot, even more than we need.
Will you read the rest with me over at Ann’s place today? Oh, thank you! To get there, just click here…
Next Tuesday: We’re inviting you to write a post about words on your blog and link it up here with us. Oh, would you please? We would love to hear your heart. If you don’t have a blog, you can share in the comments section that day.
