(Deuteronomy 17-19, Mark 14:1-25)
“She has done what she could; she has anointed my body beforehand for burial.” Mark 14:8 ESV
Let me start with this, I’m all for dreaming. A redeemed imagination partnered with the gift of faith is an amazing part of our inheritance in Christ! However, between the act of dreaming and the process of its fulfillment we have the stuff of life, and we need to learn that these seasons are just as important and can be just as beautiful.
These seasons can be difficult. We can easily develop the tendency of taking an inventory of what we don’t have at our disposal and discontentment follows. We become visionaries of lack, noticing all the things that aren’t happening.
But Jesus has never asked us to turn water into wine… that’s His job. Jesus calls us to do what we can with what we have. He causes these little movements of our heart (that’s what I call them) to be significant. He calls us to do what we can. What do you have in front of you at this moment that can be poured out in worship? It’s enough. He said it was enough!
