While visiting my son’s lakeside apartment, I suggested that we take a walk in the park across the street.
As we began our stroll, we noticed some heavy equipment parked near the fishing dock.
Neither of us could tell what work was about to be done, but it obviously looked as though some serious digging was planned.
On the way back from our walk, I decided to photograph the machines.
Can you imagine what it would be like to have only a spoon with which to dig in order to complete a task like the one probably planned near the dock?
Diligent work for weeks and months—perhaps years—might still not be enough to tackle the need.
There are many times in our lives when God provides a spoon for us to complete a work because a spoon is all that is needed.
At other times, situations loom before us as we feel helpless and defeated with our lack of resources or ability.
God knows our limitations.
Sometimes, He is the only One who can take care of a situation.
In an instant, He can heal, provide, change, forgive and encourage.
Even so, we can forget that He is available to help us.
With spoon in hand, we tackle those things never meant to be faced alone.
Philippians 4:6 says,
“Do not be anxious about anything, but in every situation, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.”
