- Write on the word for 5 minutes…no looking back.
- Link to the Five Minute Friday page on Gypsy Mama’s website.
- Don’t forget the most important part: stop by to give an encouraging word to the person before you…and anyone else you want!
I sing songs like, “More Love to Thee, O Christ” and many others with a similar message.
But honestly, I’m not sure I love Him in the way I need to.
You know, that joyful, contented way of being satisfied not only with Him,
But with the gifts He gives…all of them.
Is Jesus enough?
If “all” I had was Jesus like fellow believers in many parts of the world, would I be satisfied?
I’ve always been a rather “antsy” person.
I have difficulty sitting still. I was a finger sucker/ nail biter until age 14.
I seem to always have something nearby that I am messing with.
My brain is often running at 100 miles an hour…now it’s maybe only running at 90.
When it is time for bed at night, I have difficulty turning it off!
I thought my uniqueness extended there and sitting still and being content was something I wouldn’t experience.
I have though. I have experienced periods of contentment.
With age and less energy available to “change the world”,
I have come to see that contentment with Jesus is something I need to develop at a deeper level. STOP
Logically, when I think through all He is and has done, I find much to be content about.
It’s just that when I look at my life, I always seem to find things that I wish were there.
I wish my children lived closer. I wish this. I wish that. I want to change this or that.
There is always something. I certainly don’t think it is a problem with Jesus.
I think it’s me. I haven’t learned to be content.
I need to find fulfillment in my relationship with Christ and the things He has provided…
Because I know one thing
Jesus IS enough! Whether I feel it or not.
JESUS. IS. ENOUGH.
