“Whom have I in heaven but you? And earth has nothing I desire besides you. My flesh and my heart may fail, but God is the strength of my heart and my portion forever.”
All throughout my Christian life I have heard that “God is enough”, and I agree.
But the longer I live as a Christian the more I have to admit that it’s very easy to agree with that statement intellectually, but really hard to make it connect to your heart. There are inumerous things clamouring for my attention, affection, and time.
So how can I know if I am living as if God is, indeed, enough?
1. Experience Contentment
Don’t you wish you could walk into any store, look at any magazine, or even browse pinterest and walk away feeling completely content with what God has given you? I do.
But reality is sometimes different.
One of my particular weaknesses are kitchens. I have to avoid pictures of beautiful kitchens because looking at them leaves me very discontent with what I have at home.
I believe everyone wants to be content, but finding it and maintaining it are rarities.
We want a nicer home, newer clothes, and different furniture. We want more time with our spouses, less time cleaning, and fewer errands. I dream of the day when I can start my morning without children staring me awake and asking for breakfast before I am even fully conscious.
The person for whom God is enough will be content.
How do we get there?
