Stop Juggling It All 

  

Recently I was quietly reflecting and began to think about the words “My Portion”.  

Portion:

a part of any whole, either separated from or integrated with it.

“My Portion” those parts I try to carry or juggle sometimes is not always the portion God has for me. His portion is perfect and and is always better than my portion.  

I definitely would prefer to be integrated with instead of separated from… 

I am not a very good juggler! 

I am learning to yield when God is showing me which of “My portions” I need to release. Which ball I should let go of….

You know, those things that we just choose to take ownership of or control of without seeking Him and His plans first.  

It becomes so much that it is like too many balls being tossed up at once and there is no way to juggle them all…. It leaves us feeling like well…the image above-laid out flat on our face with all the balls gathered around us on the floor. 

As I was hearing Him speak to my heart about Portion and Juggling….I also got the word “Enough”.

Enough:

      adequate for the want or need; sufficient for the purpose or to satisfy desire.

Adequate, sufficient, satisfy….

Sometimes do you feel like you are inadequate? Insufficient? And far from satisfied? Do you feel like what you are doing is not ever “Enough”? That it all just seems to fall short no matter how you slice it? That you have way too many balls juggling? 
Of course we all feel that way sometimes, but 

That is the enemy-and that is a big ole lie!  

The first thing to do is- stop juggling!

Second, check your “Peace Gauge”.   


If we are feeling separated, short, stressed, loaded down and ill equipped without any peace, that is our indication our peace gauge is on Empty- and we have gotten out of God’s Will.  

It’s time to fill up with Christ!

Strangely to fill up with more of Christ, our peace, we have to learn to release and surrender those balls ( or our portions) back to Him. 


Christ is in us so We Are “Enough” and We Have “Enough” Always! We will always have peace if we are in His will, carrying only His portion

I then started thinking of the lyrics to this great song and that is when it came together for me- you know that “AhA” moment. Not Oprah’s AhA. No, my AhA version is a much brighter and bigger Light than a simple lightbulb moment. 

“my AhA” is “A Holy Answer” from God…..


When we allow God to be our portion, follow His direction and get in rhythm with the Holy Spirit,(stop juggling it all) and taking on our own “portions” and instead seek His portion as My Portion it will always be “Enough” because God is always Enough. His Portion is perfect! He is All we need. 

Fall in love again with this classic song as you too think about…

is “My Portion” His Portion? and is He “Enough” for me?
