When There’s Nothing in The Fridge. . . — 6 Comments

  1. He “turns each of us into more than enough – more than enough to feed God’s sheep, to live the daily.” Maryleigh, a most beautiful post! I can remember similar newlywed days 🙂 My first attempt at making a meal landed me in the ER getting my first ever stitches. To this day, we laugh about it. May we never forget all He taught us for He has always been enough and always will be.

  2. Maryleigh, I just discovered your blog and was amazed that your linkup is about an idea I have had rolling around for some time and finally decided to launch. But it looks like you have been doing it for some time. I will probably add a linkup, too. I haven’t done one in a while. Blessings!

  3. It’s miraculous how God can turn our emptiness and limits into enough when we trust him to supply our needs. Because it’s not ME that has to feed the sheep, I’m just his hands and feet. This was an interesting post for me to read right now – after years of having the well-stocked home and feeding all my kids and their friends, my friends, and having as many for dinner as could fit around my table at least a couple times a week, my husband and I have moved and are settling into our empty nest (it’s reversed! We left our adult kids at the family home while we moved out!) and it’s oddly reminiscent of our very first apartment all those years ago when we have to start from scratch to stock our fridge and pantry. Praise God he provides the resources for us to do it!

  4. What a beautiful post! I really enjoyed reading your early married story. You must have gotten married around the same time my husband and I got married. We were married on June 11, 1988. God has been so good to us. I can see His faithfulness all over our life together as I look back, and my constant prayer is for God to give us many, many more happy, healthy years together. I trust He will do the same for you and your husband. May He bless you today.

  5. Hi Maryleigh, remembering that He is always enough and He is our provider will help me refocus my attention when I begin to feel I’ve run out of energy–more than run out of food (lol!) In Jesus, I have enough.

    Thank you for the reminder.


  6. oh this post is full of precious reflections, solid wisdom, and sheer love. i’m bookmarking it to come back later and sit again with you, Maryleigh.

    merry christmas!
