    Can I be a bit real here?

    I'm tired.

    It's been a long, rough week in our world. From Charlottesville to Barcelona, there's been so much hatred and fear in the news.

    It's exhausting!

    But, God keeps reminding me that nothing is beyond his reach. That nothing catches him off guard. That, even in the darkness, he has placed his people to boldly shine his light.

    That in the end, hatred will never win. God's love will always defeat bigotry, racism and hatred.

    So as we head into the weekend, I pray for healing, peace and hope for those who may be feeling a bit hopeless.

    Joshua 10:25 reminds us “Do not be afraid; do not be discouraged. Be strong and courageous.”

    You've possibly said it hundreds of times. “Give us this day our daily bread.” I always thought of it as simply asking for God's provision in my life. And, that's part of it, certainly…realizing that everything we have is His and He will provide all that we need.

    But, I read something the other day that added something to that thought. It said this: “Give us this day our daily enough.”

    Not “Give me that promotion that will make me look really good,” not “Help that girl on TV to call out MY Lotto numbers,” but “Give me only what I need.”

    I don't know about you, but for me, this prayer helps me to simply “exhale.” I don't need to frantically try to grab on to all that I think I should have in life. I don't need to worry about getting “overlooked” or not getting the prestige I think I deserve. I simply need to hold on to God's hand and walk through this day, knowing that He will give me exactly what I need.

    Because, ultimately, isn't that what we really want? Just enough to stay in a place of thankfulness and total dependence on Him.

    So today, God, I pray “Give me this day my daily enough.”

    I think we all love to hear stories like Milly Forrest's story. She's the 23 year old woman who dreamed of being an opera singer and got her dream for one incredible night when she was pulled from her job in the cloakroom to the stage after the lead soprano got sick.

    It got me thinking. Have you ever had something like that happen? It might not have been quite so dramatic, but maybe it was something you dreamed of doing from the time you were little that you finally got to do? 

    I also wanted to sing and spent many hours singing into my hairbrush as a kid! And in high school? My dream was to be Amy Grant!

    Well, a few years ago, Amy Grant visited KLOVE and I not only got to tell her that, but I got to sing a duet with her on the radio! And, although I am exactly where I want to be doing exactly what I know I'm supposed to do, I got a little bit of the childhood dream in that moment.  It was SO much fun!

    What about you? What did you want to be when you were little? Did you ever get a moment where that dream came true? I'd love to hear about it!
