Little Daily Doses

If our heart condemns us, God is greater than our heart. And equally, if our heart flatters us, God is greater that our heart. I sometimes pray not for self-knowledge in general but for just so much self-knowledge at the moment as I can bear and use at the moment; the little daily dose.  ~ C.S. Lewis

The mystery of the heart. It condemns, it flatters, but rarely does is get it right.

I’m so thankful that God doesn’t turn my entire insides out for me to see all at once. Just as much self-knowledge at the moment as I can bear and use at the moment; the little daily dose for which I am grateful.

Grace in abundance!

    thank you! I have been silently saying in my Heart “God doesn’t give us more than we can handle…” over and over again for a month now.

    YOU sum it up beautifully.

    thank you! xxx Jen

      Dearest Jen –
      How my heart has been aching for you. You’ve been daily, often, in my prayers even though I haven’t been able to get on line to tell you.
      I know He’s sufficient for you. But sufficiency doesn’t mean that He takes away the pain – only that He carries it as He carries you.
      You remain, always, close to my heart,
      ~ Debbie

    “turn my insides out” a clever phrasing of words to help us understand

    Thank you. A dab’ll do ya! Truly, if you keep that prayer or thought in your head/HEART … you can’t go wrong. It’s like living in the middle, WITH Grace … assistance. Thanks again, sweet woman. mel

      Dearest mel –
      Isn’t it wonderful how He carefully administers little daily doses of revelation but lavishes us with grace beyond measure!
      Thank you for journeying along here with me.
      You continue to be in my prayers as your heart aches for Harper.

    The hardest part is after He shows us and we think: Now, at last, I am finally all exposed and He is about to fix the last broken thing, and then I will be all fixed.
    And then He takes us for yet another test run. A-a-ah. Not quite, never quite perfect. Sighs.

    So very true! God never gives us more of anything than we can handle…not even ourselves! Thank you Jesus!
