I was getting ready for the Christmas program at our church the other Sunday.
Such a busy but fun time of year. There are weeks of program practice, there are decorating the stage and recreating the nativity scene.
As I was sifting through my American, walk-in- closet in hopes of finding the “right” outfit to wear, all the while thinking I have nothing to wear.
I reluctantly choose and head off to church.
There is a 45 minute commute to our local town. As I drive along, I am struck with this thought…
Too Much… I have so much, too many clothes, too much to do, too many people to see before Christmas.
Too much…. my schedule feels like too much.
As I sat in the pew that cold Sunday morning blessed by the toddlers singing, “Away in the Manger.”
I see the nativity.
I listen to teens reading the Scriptures announcing the birth of our Lord and Savior.
I was overwhelmed by the enoughness of our Almighty God.
I am overwhelmed by
the enoughness of our God Almighty.
For God so loved the world: He gave His one and only Son, for whosoever believes in Him will not perish but have eternal life. John 3:16
2 Corinthians 12:9
My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in your weakness.
In our busy. In our rushed … God is enough.
We somehow think we need more.
More money, more room, more time.
Yet God is very clear in His Word, we are to be content in any situation, whether hungry or full, plenty or want.
The ache for the want of more leaves your life dry and empty.
Let the enoughness of our Lord and Savior be just enough this New Year.
Until next time, Pam
