Spiritual Hunger & Thirst

Measuring Up

“Whatever your hand finds to do, do it with all your might…”
– Ecclesiastes 9:10

In Mississippi, where I was born, there is a little town by the name of Soso. Years ago, when they were building the railroad, a group went ahead to scout out a place where they could set up camp. Upon returning, they were asked if they had found a good spot. And they replied, “We found a place. It has some water, but not enough. It has some shelter, but not what we’d expect. The place we found to build is just so-so.” Just so-so. Not quite adequate? If that is how you would describe your spiritual life right now, don’t camp there! God is at work in your life, so press on, and He will turn your so-so life into “so much more” than you could ever imagine.

Ask God to forgive you when you settle for anything less than His very best for your life. Never forget that He is able to do “exceeding abundantly” beyond anything you can think or ask.
