Gratitude Day 96 – Making God Enough

God enough

Mon., Aug. 6, 2018

2 Corinthians 9:8 – God is able to make it up to you by giving you everything you need and more so that there will not only be enough for your own needs, but plenty left over to give joyfully to others.

Most days, I think of someway in which I do not feel “enough.”

Not healthy enough.

Not eating right.

Not exercising enough.

Not organized enough

Not completing enough.

Not crossing enough off my to-do list.

Not investing into relationships enough.

Not appreciating Hubby Rick enough.

Not following up with people who I know are struggling.

Not working enough.

Not writing enough.

Not getting household things taken care of.

Not confident in what I do.

Not committed to my faith.

Why does it seem there is always “more” that I yearn for rather than being content with who I am and where I am at this place in my life?

Maybe it is because I’m getting just a little older.

Possibly because I am realizing my time is not infinite.

I want to make the most of today, my time and my activities.

But I realize that quite often, I’m looking for things in all the wrong places.

Rather than trying to stuff my life with more “things,” or squeeze another volunteer activity onto my calendar, I just need to see that I have all I need in God.

All the security I need.

All the peace.

All the grace.

All the contentment.

All I need, I can find in God.

Not in another scoop of ice cream.

Not in a full calendar.

Not with another appointment.

Not with another affirmation from someone else. (OK – but don’t we like these?)

Not in a larger bank account.

Not in a new pair of jeans that fits me fantastically.

All I need, I can find in God.

God is enough.

I just need to discover God’s enough-ness in me.

I can search for “something” in so many places:

Work, relationships, possessions, financial security, or people who respond to a social media post.

That “something” is always there. It’s always God.

Thank you, God, for being enough for me. Yesterday, today and tomorrow.

For God’s “enoughness,” I am grateful.

Lord God – forgive me when I look for something to make me feel enough in all the wrong places. I pray that I can feel completely fulfilled in you today. May you be my enough.

Blessings –

Dianne
