Is Jesus Really “Enough” for Me?
Can I confess something to you?
It’s not going to be pretty. I am embarrassed to admit this, but here I go:
I don’t always live like I truly believe that “Jesus is enough.” I say that I believe it. But I don’t always live those words. That sobering reality brought me to my knees recently when I was singing along to a song that blared through my car speakers.
I’ll bet you’ve heard the song, and maybe you’ve even sung it. Here’s the chorus:
“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”
As I drove along, I sang the words loudly, and I knew every word by heart.
The song played on, but I stopped singing.
Because did I really believe that? Did I really believe that God is “more than enough?”
Could I sing that song if something awful happened to the kids? If my marriage fell apart? If we filed for bankruptcy? If I lost all my friends? If I couldn’t afford the stuff I love so much? If I lost my ability to reason, or think, or speak?
Would God really be enough then?
