ENOUGH--at Lisa Jo formerly Gypsy Mama

The first thing that came to mind was the praise 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...

Talking about God being more than enough to meet our need, satisfy the longings of our hearts.

I often feel like I don't do enough, am not woman enough or strong enough, to DO this thing called life. To live my life, to be who I am--military ministry wife, mother, teacher, friend, ministry team leader for more than one team. Writer, editor, maybe even a speaker someday.

I don't measure up to whatever ideal is in my head. And that's enough to drive me crazy.

When will I be enough?

I won't. I can't.

Not alone.

But with God, I am. He made me to be enough, but only if I allow Him access to my heart and life and the vessel I am in Him.

What an amazing thought. Revolutionary.

Now, to let it be enough to satisfy that longing in my heart to do more, be more, strive for more.

isn't that a lovely truth that never changes, even when we don't remember it? God is enough and because of Him we are too.
I enjoyed your post, and I am enjoying these Five Minute Friday challenges. So nice to meet you.

It is good to find others who struggle with similar thoughts and concerns. It makes the journey a lot less lonely! Thank you.

Isn't it nice to know we are enough for God and He is enough to fill all of our holes? You voiced the thoughts of so many of us beautifully, thanks. Nita
