I think the last wilbur stream was actually the first stream i've ever watched throughout this whole year of enjoying dsmp where i actually almost cried.... like, i've felt emotional for absolute sure, god, but not like. Actually feeling eyes sting... but. Hearing Tubbo talk about his trauma, and how he misses L'manburg, and him just,,, with such a broken voice, telling Ranboo that he wants to be left alone, I just..... man. Man. Tubbo my absolute beloved you're gonna make me cry just thinking about you again, oughghhhh,,,,,

I know You can
Do you see God at work in your life?
Things, both great and small, that you could never have done on your own. Situations that you know you couldn’t have gotten through without God’s help.
Moments when you had just the words that someone needed to hear – and you know that they weren’t from you.
Or are you stuck? Frustrated, wondering if God will ever show up?
The difference between seeing God at work in our lives or feeling stuck? It comes down to us. What we’re telling ourselves about God. And what we’re telling God about us.
God has a plan for each one of us. If you’re still on this side of eternity, then God’s not done with all that He wants to do for you, and with you, and through you.
But whether you and I get to see any of that in our lives? Depends on what we’re telling ourselves about God. And what we’re telling God about us.
If we’re telling ourselves that it can’t happen. That we’ve strayed too far. That it’s too late. That’s it’s just not possible. Then we’re going to God with closed hands.
When we do, we’ll end up just like the people in the first reading. Spreading discouraging reports. Telling themselves a thousand reasons why it won’t work. Spiritually keeping our hands closed.
And wondering why God hasn’t done anything, when what we’re doing is telling Him – “don’t do anything.”
Or we can go to God with an “I know You can” attitude.
Telling ourselves the truth. That God will be there for us and with us, no matter what.
Telling God the truth. That even if we can’t see a way, we know that God will make a way.
Not worrying about how we think it should be done. But trusting God’s way of doing it. Going to God with open hands. Ready to follow God’s lead. Ready to receive what God wants to give us.
When we do, we’ll end up just like the Canaanite woman in today’s Gospel. Overflowing with all that God wants to do for us, and with us, and through us.
Because one of God’s names is “I know You can.”
