Brad, the master guitarist, learned to play Ben Kweller's song Lizzie. He wanted to learn the lyrics (so Amy, master singer, could sing). After listening to the song, tons of times a couple of weeks ago I still could not figure out a repetitive line. What's a girl to do? Google it.

The line turned out to be a word. Dayenu. What does that mean? I didn't know... Google it.

Dayenu is a Hebrew word that means "it would have been enough" or "it is sufficient." There is a Jewish song that goes through all of the blessing the Israelites had in the desert, exodus, etc. After each blessing, it repeats this word, dayenu.

When I first looked it up, I thought it was interesting. However, today in my quiet time I was thinking just how much I am like the Israelites. I go through those up and down phases of faith. I don't always put my trust in the Father. Currently, as I am thinking about my future I have not put trust in Him. Why not??!?! I have seen over and over how He protects, loves and leads to me to good things. He does something great and not five seconds later, I have forgotten and wonder why he has left me. I wrote out my own little version of the Dayenu (Jewish) song with the many ways Father has blessed me just this year. Hopefully, the next time I get to feeling sorry for myself, I will remember dayenu.
