“Though my plans disintegrate and my aspirations die, though my dreams shatter and my goals are thwarted, even if no woman is ever romantically interested in me and all my friends leave me, though I never have another visible reminder of God’s presence of of spiritual comfort, if all I have in life is God and only God, I will lift up my hands up to Heaven and proclaim that my Yahweh is good to me. My Yahweh is AWESOME!!!”
I posted this a few years back. Actually, this pre-dates my WordPress blogs and probably goes back to at least 2010.
The point is not that I wish any of these things I mentioned would happen or that I fear they will happen.
The point of what I wrote is that even in the very worst case scenarios, God will still be good and I will still be blessed and I will still lack for nothing.
God is enough.
That is the cliffs notes version.
If you only get one thing from tonight’s post, let it be that God is enough.
Make that your mantra.
If you pin your hopes and dreams on anything else, ultimately whatever it is won’t satisfy you. Nothing else has the capacity to do so. Not your marriage, not your kids, not your career, not money, not anything. Only God can truly be enough.
If you have everything you ever dreamed of and don’t have God, you really don’t have anything. If you end up with absolutely nothing but God, you still have everything you need.
So, here’s hoping for at least 2,000 more blogs and enough creativity to fill those posts so that they will continue to be both fun to write and fun to read.
Maybe I can get Lucy the Wonder Cat to be a guest blogger one of these days. You never know, right?
