  1. Great encouragement for those of us with big hearts. That’s why I like the song “When I’m with you” by citizen way. “I’m never too much for you to take. There’s only love there’s only grace when I’m with you”

    • Aliza thank you for what you wrote today. It reminds me of Song I learnt in Sunday school class when small. It reminds me of the love Jesus has for us all. It is “Jesus Love is very wonderful oh wonderful love.” You get it on YouTube. That song is do true of Jesus love for us. We may lack at times to be Jesus love to others. But Jesus love never fails to be there for us at all times. Love Dawn Ferguson-Little xx

  2. Yes, indeed!
    “He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; he gently leads those that have young.” ‭‭Isaiah‬ ‭40‬:‭11‬ ‭NIV‬‬
    Many times I have asked God to hold me close to His heart!

  3. Thank you Aliza. In the “too much” that sometimes drains me, then I feel I’m not enough, it is so calming to remember Jesus lacks nothing and when I remember He is right beside me, I too lack nothing.
    Merry Christmas sisters

  4. Thank you for reminding me that with Jesus I am never too much and I am always enough… this is very encouraging and enlightening.

  5. Aliza,

    I have often felt both too much & lacking. Feel sometimes like I’m not smart or good enough. But God in His infinite wisdom sends people my way that encourage me. They let me know I am enough just as I am. Praying right now for those who feel lacking or too much. Asking God to come near & show them they lack nothing. Have a blessed Christmas.

    Blessings 🙂

  6. Beautiful Aliza. Thank you. So important to grasp. Potentially life-changing. If we could all live having really grasped this, how effective would we be. It reminds me of Acts 17:28 For in him we live and move and are!
