All of me…



This is from one of our leaders at Rejoice, the church I lead. It really resonated with me today, so thought I’d share it. Such meaning in so few words. With permission:

Doctrinal Text
The disciples replied to Jesus, “We have nothing here but five loaves and two fish.” And he said, “Bring them here to me.” Matthew 14:17–18

I tend to bring to Jesus just what I think is worthy, what I think he can use. But Jesus tells me to bring whatever I have, he’ll use it, it can feed others. I want to believe it, but I know my limitations, what I can and cannot do. I know where I’ve failed in the past. How my mind tends to shutdown and I can’t find the words. I know all my weaknesses so well. But Jesus says he’ll use those things too. He wants all of me.

Jesus, help me to trust you with all of me. Amen.
