Give And It Will Be Given To You

Checked out my app, "Daily Bible Verse" and today's verse basically has summed up my emotions about current situations in my life perfectly!

"Give, and it will be given to you. A good measure, pressed down, shaken together and running over, will be poured into your lap. For with the measure you use, it will be measured to you." -Luke 6:38

So what does that mean to me? It means I have been patiently waiting and praying for so long in hopes that my prayers will be answered. I need to stop asking and just throw my hands up and yell (out loud for good measures) that I'm giving up and that he will be the one to give me what he wants when he's ready. He's waiting for the perfect opportunity to open up and is just making me strong enough right now to handle everything at once.

Have you ever seen or heard about those camels that have so much they're carrying that one single piece of straw will break them. Well, that's me right now! I feel like I've had everything thrown at me and I'm fully loaded down but I know that I'm strong enough to somehow handle it, that one day some I will be able to look back and laugh and say, "Wow I thought it was a lot back then, look at all that I have now!" I know that day's a comin, it just has to!


  1. That’s exactly where I am right now, Just yesterday I came to pretty much the same conclusion I can’t do this all myself so I just turned it all over to the lord, and will let him guide me because obviously I haven’t been doing a very good job of it myself. I have been praying about all of it but I didn’t really turn it over to him. As you said it will make us stronger.
    Take Care
