Revelation While Writing at the Bakery

Scarcity says,
“I can’t commit to using all this paper.
I can’t write these words, they’ll fill up the space.
And then what?
There will be no more words.”
I just know it.

Scarcity says,
“I’m afraid,
I don’t trust you
there is not enough.”
Like a greedy 5 year old
at a best friend’s birthday party–
There’s no way there’s enough
birthday cake to go around.
They’re gonna run out.
“I just know it.”

Want stands empty-handed

staring at the hole instead
of the donut,
missing the super-sized
abundance of it all,
the over-the-top
carb and sugar count–
why look at all that frosting!–
that is clearly more than enough
for you
for two
for all of you.

I don’t want pastries
I don’t need cake
I just want Jesus–and there He is,
arms outstretched, hands full of life
with everything I need to take my holes
and make them whole.

There’s enough–I just know it.

Sharing is caring!
