Have you ever said that? Enough Already! I know I have! I've said it in the heat of arguments, I have said it when my kids are fighting with each other, I have said it to the Lord when I think I cannot take another minute of a trial or a test. Usually we say "Enough Already" in frustration. Laying in bed this morning, the Lord brought the Chris Tomlin song "Your Grace is Enough" to my mind. Chris wrote this song based on II Corinthians 12:9 "My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness".
So today, as I feel a little laggy and actually overwhelmed by the work on my plate (thank you God for blessing me in my job) I have to look to Him and realize that I have "enough already". I have to really rely on the fact that his 'grace is sufficient' or 'enough'. . that in my weakness (ADD and the want to do nothing because I have so much to do) His Strength can find perfection in that. That is overwhelming to know that God knows our weakness and wants us to say, you know, I have enough already. Enough Grace, Enough Love, Enough Strength, Enough Reliance on God - to get through this day.
I promise I did not intend for these blogs to seem like devotions, but that seems to be the theme right now. Maybe these blogs are my communication with the Lord and I just happen to be sharing them with you, the reader. I just know that I woke up with this today and couldn't shake it off, so I thought if I'd just type it out, it would help me get my day going in the right direction.
Speaking of right direction, I lost another pound today..WOOT! Since my biggest, I have now lost 23 lbs and went from size 20 pants to a comfortable 16 (and a not so comfortable - some 14's). . anyway, I'm gettting there, slowly but surely. . and that's enough already!
