Last night as I was standing in front of my 365 Days of Thanks Calendar, I was reflecting on the day and deciding what I should add to the calendar. I decided on ENOUGH. Just, enough. I'm thankful that God is enough. That God supplies enough. That I have enough. Just, enough. Oh, at times, I'd love to have more money or more things... but really I have enough.
I have enough money so that I remain dependent on God. Having more would make it easier. However, when I have to depend on God to pay the bills and care for me, I learn more about God and His creative ways of supplying.
There are "things" I'd like to have, but don't really need them. More things may make some tasks easier, but then again, are not necessary for living. And if I had more things, would I ever be satisfied with what I have?
Enough. I have enough to accomplish God's will. I have enough to live so that I can glorify Him. I have enough...if I keep my focus on God. If I look to the "Jones" or "Smiths", then I begin to want.. and that is a sin. I need to know that I have enough.
God is enough. Often people want things to fill a void in their lives. They know something is missing, and try to fill it with things. Yet, a relationship with God fills that void. God created us to have a relationship with us. When that relationship isn't developed, we feel incomplete. God is not a religion. God is God. He is our Creator. When our relationship with God is in order, than God is enough. However, if that relationship has been hindered in any way (all on our part), than we begin to want.
So, I'm thankful for ENOUGH. God is enough. God supplies enough so that I continue to build my relationship with Him. And when my relationship is right with God, than my days are positive.
