Making Something Out of Nothing

“Now to him who is able to do far more abundantly than all that we ask or think, according to the power at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus throughout all generations, forever and ever” (Eph 3:20–21 ESV).

As a young mother, I often found it difficult to find time for a devotional with God. When it came to my relationship with God, I found myself believing that I would have to sustain it on my own. I hadn’t realized that while I thought I’d been upholding our relationship in the past, it was God doing the work in me all along—in His strength, my weakness was made perfect.

I believe in a God who specializes in making something out of nothing. When I carve out a moment to come to Him now, I know it will never be enough. But I come in faith, trusting that He will multiply the little time I have and provide me with enough nourishment for that moment, with some to spare.
