More · thin

feeling at odds…

Feeling at odds with Him…
as I’m longing to embrace my finitude…
He seems to be wanting to show me how much is possible in Him…

Stretched thin…
is how I’m feeling…
and as soon as I write it… I think of thin places

I don’t remember who… or where… I heard it from first…
so I Bing-ed… and found a site…

In the Celtic tradition such places that give us an opening into the magnificence and wonder of that Presence are called “Thin Places.” … A thin place where the veil that separates heaven and earth is lifted and one is able to receive a glimpse of the glory of God. …

—Sylvia Maddox, Where Can I Touch the Edge of Heaven?

And I see… how being stretched thin… can become a thin place… where His presence and glory become more readily revealed…

With each success… with each completion… of each call… I know it’s Him… and not me…

Only by His power… in this place of what feels like too much… will anything get done…

Feeling at odds… or just feeling odd… in a new place… a stretched thin place… increasing my faith and trust in Him…

Let the favor of the Lord our God be upon us,
and establish the work of our hands upon us;
yes, establish the work of our hands!
Psalm 90:17 ESV
