"We have this treasure in jars of clay to show that this all-surpassing power is from God and not from us."

Trusting Jesus, that is ALL!

Today was one of those days that I woke up with lots of anticipation. James and I were going to one of our local college campuses to pass out Final Exam Survival Kits. God opened an incredible door for us to go on a public campus and pass out items to the students, which also included a gospel tract and information about our church.

I had "fantasies" in my head of how things would be. James and I would have a leisurely breakfast before we had to be at the college.

HOWEVER....things did not turn out as planned. We ended up having to take care of some pressing matters which included coming back to the ranch. Needless to say, I didn' t get that breakfast, but I did get much MORE!

We were both frustrated and so we just prayed out loud as we were driving. Asking God to help us keep our focus, praise Him despite circumstances, and to obey HIM and follow HIS plan regardless of the distractions and the pressing temptation to fall deep into discouragement.

We were able to take care of our business and make it to the college on time. God's presence was with us and He blessed our time on campus. I had also committed to go back tonight to pass out more packets to the night students.

On my way back to the campus I was LEANING on Jesus as I was reflecting on the things that had happened earlier.

All of a sudden a song came to mind and I knew it was the Holy Spirit reminding me of an old Hymn that I learned long ago.

It's called, "Trusting Jesus"

The line of the song that came to my mind was:

"Even when my faith is small, Trusting Jesus that is all."

The song is not saying, "That is all?, That's all you are doing?" It is saying that is enough....it is ALL.

It is ALL we need.

We can trust Him with our ALL, it's ALL His anyway.

Isn't their also a song that says that He is our ALL in ALL?

What that says to me is that regardless of how awful it ALL seems.........He is ALL we need for ALL of it!

ALLways Amazed at His comfort and peace,

PS: I never got that breakfast, but I did get a nice lunch at my hubby's favorite lunch spot,
which makes me happy!
