when i think about having 4 children (or maybe more one day), i don’t worry about having enough space for them, enough clothes for them to wear (or the “right” clothes), enough food for them to eat (or the “correct” food), what i truly worry about is having enough love for them, enough time to spend with them as individuals, and enough of me to truly shepherd each of them well.
because i know that despite what the t-shirts and pretty-background-memes tell me, i am not enough. i can’t love enough, i can’t do it well.
however. i have the holy spirit within me, which can respond with peace, love, joy, patience, self-control when i have nothing left. which can love with a better love than i could ever give on my own.
