If you’re anything like me, you probably came to the point over the course of Christmas day where you had had “enough.” Even if you were offered one more slice of meat, one more chocolate, or one more drink, you couldn’t do it.
When you have had “enough”, it can be a very satisfied feeling, there’s a fullness to it.
I encourage you, even just for a day, contemplate the fact that you are enough.
Enough change has taken place this year, enough growth and stretching, enough personal bests, enough reaching above and beyond where you have ever been before, and enough striving.
Be satisfied in you.
New Year’s resolutions can wait, what you may be or could become in the future will have their time.
Take a moment or two to rest in all you’ve done and all you’ve become, and who you are right now because you are “enough”! You are lovable, loving, kind and generous, trustworthy, and unique in your own skin.
Psalm 4:6-8 says, “Why is everyone hungry for more? “More, more,” they say. “More, more.” I have God’s more-than-enough, more joy in one ordinary day than they get in all their shopping sprees. At day’s end I’m ready for sound sleep, for you, God, have put my life back together.”
Even beyond today, consider the fact that God can use whatever state you are in right now to outwork His purposes.
You may think you need to be more for God to use you but God specialises in the “enough”.
Look at the boy in the Bible with the two fish and five loaves. Everybody else thought it wasn’t enough to feed thousands of people, but it was. We read in Mark 6 that Jesus took that offering, looked up to heaven and blessed it.
God takes our “enough”, blesses it, and causes the miraculous to happen.
When we come to the place of realising that we are enough, offer ourselves to God to be a blessing, He takes who we are and uses it for good. You are His “enough” right now and it is amazing what God can do with your “enough”.
So, enough from me 🙂 Go and enjoy being you, just the way you are!
