At Least One More

Turst in Him…

And in that context, three little words have been dancing in my life these last two years: Now, Deliberate and More. They have filled my tummy with joy and frustration, they have kept me awake at night, they have enticed me to go on, they have challenged me to live. To really, really live.

And then, my heart kind of let go of More a few months ago. It just happened as I got more involved with Now and Deliberate. I guess I was satisfied. I didn’t need more anymore. Good or bad.

But then one day, Janet made this comment on my blog: “God always has at least one more,” and those words pierced my heart. I got right back on the More wagon–God has at least one more… Did I hear her right?

Wake up, sleepy soul. God has at least one more.

One more joy to receive. One more challenge to overcome. One more victory around the corner. One more child to feed. One more year to experience Him. One more prayer to utter.

One more ripple to make.

As long as He permits breath in my body, God has at least one more.

Wake up, sleepy soul; God has at least one more. Don’t waste it.

  1. This was super encouraging. I can think of some “one mores” that mean a lot. One more snuggle, one more morning, one more act of mercy, one more granting of grace. Thanks

  2. Barbara – you DID it! And it was GOOD! Now you’ve got me thinking about all the ‘one mores’…again. This was a great way to start my Wednesday!
    So proud of you!

  4. Great post – it’s easy to become too settled, get in a rut and fail to recognise where God is leading us next. It is a hard balance between satisfaction in the now and embracing the adventure of the more.
    Thanks for sharing at Essential Fridays.
