do you believe this???

I was singing the song “Enough” today–and it just hit me. Do you really believe this?? Do I really believe that He is enough?? Do I really LIVE that way in my day to day life?? I’m not sure about you–but being a girl (I might be 35–but I’m still a girl) I can have some crazy emotions/feelings/thoughts. But through all of those–do I believe and live the lyrics of this song…

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

You are my supply, my breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You are my reward, worth living for
Still more awesome than I know

…I can easily look around my world–and start thinking too much…evaluating friendships…thinking through things that don’t matter–like where will my 3 year old go to high school and what sports will he play…and I can actually CATCH MYSELF making decisions or beginning to have emotion based on those things. I’m sure I’m the only one that does this. Right;)??? Maybe it’s just me–and that’s okay:)

I catch myself wanting things–good things…like deeper friendships…to invest in this worthy cause or that…and then I really realize…that those things are still…just—not enough. I know the answer is…HE IS ENOUGH. But I really want to LIVE this out. As believers I know we go through seasons–but I want Him being enough for me to be my constant season. When I catch myself making decisions to please others (even my children/family/dearest friends)–I want to stop and ask, “You are enough Lord–does this bring me closer to you?? Does this please you?? Can you be glorified more in this??”

This momma has 3 really big things on her mind and heart. Some really, really, really big decisions ahead. They require turning off what others think…even my emotions a bit (or a lot)…and just sitting before Him–waiting on Him–and walking not by sight–but by faith.

When I feel FEAR creep in–I realize it only creeps in because my security has been placed in the wrong things–often really good things…but not completely in Him. FEAR is a byproduct of HOPE and TRUST being placed in ANYTHING other than the LORD. He is the only sure thing you’ve got here on Earth. He is the only One who can satisfy. And in Him–and following Him–fear vanishes. Psalm 27:1 “The LORD is my light and my salvation–whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life–of whom shall I be afraid?” …or even…of WHAT shall I be afraid? Some of you who just happen to be reading this–have things before you that initially bring fear to your hearts. Stop for a minute. And think through this…

If this or that happens…will He still be with you?

If saying yes and following Him in this thing means letting go of other things you hold dear…will He still be with you?

Is HE really enough?

When you can answer YES–I mean…REALLY answer YES–then your heart can REALLY sing that last line of this worship song. If you feel fear or uneasiness when you read it–maybe you are like me…and there are a few things you need to really work through…to lay at His alter–to give back to Him–and to really begin to walk and live in a way that demonstrates that He is enough…

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

You are my supply, my breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You are my reward, worth living for
Still more awesome than I know

Off to bed…hope you all have a blessed FRIDAY! Yes…tomorrow is FRIDAY. Not that any day is that different for a homeschooling mom…but still–weekends with Rico Suave home are always more fun. Hope y’all have a great weekend ahead!

xoxo!
