More Than Enough

This last Tuesday on my drive home from class, this song by Barlow Girl came on the radio.  I cranked up the volume to 40 (which is loud in my car :) and sang along at the top of my lungs not caring for a second what other drivers on the road thought! (it was dark, though)

All of You
is more than enough for
All of me
for every thirst and
every need
You satisfy me
with Your love
And all I have in You
Is more than enough
 
I once wrote a paper in an English Composition class regarding "Pecuniary Emulation", the desire to acquire "more".  With this song, Christ reminded me to be content in the place I am in life and for what I have; and it also brought back memories of the days when I struggled to put gas in my car and ate a lot of peanut butter and jelly sandwiches for dinner.  I feel so blessed to be married to such an amazing man, to have a great career especially in these "hard economic times" (a phrase I've been hearing a lot lately).  I thank God for such a supportive family who helped me through those difficult years with masses of emotional support.  So, just when I was feeling the urge to desire "more", I was reminded of what I am MORE than thankful for! 

I am more than content

All I have in You

Is more than enough

  1. Amazing. It's crazy how messages & reminders come along just when you need them. Sometimes you just have to be quiet long enough to pay attention. It makes me wonder how many times I missed God talking to me just because I couldn't stop complaining or stressing long enough to pay attention. The nuts & bolts of everyday life are always going to be there to worry about, but it makes it so much easier knowing you are not alone.
