Standard

Good morning, DearHeart.

Did you see the Kentucky Derby and pick a favorite horse over the weekend? It was an insane ending that made no sense to me – where it was won by the second place finisher due to instant replay technology, not won by the horse that crossed the finish line first. Apparently, the horse in first stepped out of his unmarked lane – who knew there were lanes (?) and got into another horse’s personal space. How frustrating and messed up is that? I bet if they put big designer hats on the horses like they do the ladies, then their space would would be marked clearly. They may have a time keeping them on, but surely the ladies had the same struggle – especially with those side gigs.

We humans wear lots of hats … I’ve have been a

daughter,

sister,

wife,

in-law,

mother,

employee,

aunt,

mother-in-law,

and Nanny.

Who knows what hats will be donned today?

The truth is I haven’t and won’t wear any hat because I could fit the role perfectly … as I am quite flawed, and my mistakes have been plentiful.

Yet, over and over God has positioned me to fill a role for which I was totally unprepared, or unequipped, to do. I have asked the question many a times, “Am I good enough?”

As His called one, whatever the role, I’ve learned it has nothing to do with being

good ‘enough’ (it’s impossible),

or prepared ‘enough’ (it’s impossible),

or equipped ‘enough’ (it’s impossible),

God positions us. He calls us to prepare as best we can and to just “be”.

Be there.

Do the thing.

Be in Him.

“My grace is all you need. My power works best in weakness.” So now I am glad to boast about my weakness, so that the power of Christ can work through me. That’s why I take pleasure in my weaknesses, and in the insults, hardships, persecutions, and troubles that I suffer for Christ. For when I am weak, then I am strong.” (2 Corinthians 12:9-10, NLT)

It is His grace. His power. His fuel. And it works best in our weaknesses.

Our weaknesses are opportunities for the power of Christ to be seen and speak of God’s grace.

And … He is enough.

Wear the hat today that He has chosen for you. He will meet you there.

Wake up.

Be in Him.

Go.
