Is God Enough?



Is God enough for you?

This is a very important question. One that all Christians need to consider.

Is God enough for you?

Some of you may wonder what I mean by that question. Let me explain.

Is God enough for you?

Is He more important than your friends?
Whatever popularity you may have?
Your money?
Your romantic relationships?
Your family?

Something I've been processing through recently, if I lost all these things, would God still be enough?

Would I still be able to smile knowing God is in control? Would I still be able to find joy through the midst of trials? Would I still rely on God to give me everything I need?

Because, you see, God is always enough. It's just a matter of whether we make Him enough for ourselves.

Are you searching for happiness outside of God? Maybe you are searching for love and belonging inside the confines of a friendship, family, or a relationship. Maybe you're looking for happiness in money or popularity.

Those things will never be enough.

They will eventually fade away. Those friendships may die, the money will get spent, and the crowds will forget you in a couple years.

All these things will not lead you to happiness. That's why it's so important to realize that God needs to be at the center.

He is the only One Who can give you true joy; not happiness, but joy.

When we realize that God is enough for us, we won't be searching for belonging in any of these places. Because we know that nothing compares to knowing Jesus Christ.
"But what things were gain to me, those I counted loss for Christ. Yea, doubtless, and I count all things but loss for the excellency of the knowledge of Christ Jesus my Lord: for whom I have suffered the loss of al things, and do count them but dung, that I may win Christ." ~Philippians 3:7-8 KJV

  2. SO much truth here! Christ is beyond enough, and we must believe it instead of chasing after temporary things. :)

Bible Journaling : how to get the most out of your Bible Study

Heyyy Guys!  I'm Janelle from  The Ramblings of a Bookworm and I'm supper excited to be able to have the chance to share some thought on here... but first let me tell you a little bit about myself! I blog about life. Books. And of that which I know of. I am a storyteller. Anne Shirley is a kindred spirit of mine. I read, perhaps too much, but that can't be helped. It's probably not super healthy, but hey, you make time for the things you love.. right? I live in Up State NY where its winter most of the year round (kidding... kind of)     love watermelon. I read books like there going out of style. I have a dream coffee shop on Pinterest. Family is goal. God is best. Friends are fantastic. i live in a state of summer. Shoes and I don't really get along. i write stories. history addict. i love exploring. some times my words are so random that no knows what I'm talking about. Also home schooled.  ANYWAYS enough about me. lets move on to the real subject.

Love Beyond Measure

Dear America, I know it hurts the the pain we go through,  to have a family member or friend say that you are no good, they say they don't want anything to do with you so they don't talk to you anymore. People laugh at you they make jokes, somehow they sense inside that you are special, that God created you, that you are a Christian, they just say that they don't believe in that stuff and they don't want to hear anything about the name of Jesus. Don't give up hope He is with you, abide in Him. John 3:16 says for God so loved the world that he gave his only begotten son, that whosoever believes in him shall not perish but have everlasting life. His life comprehens the darkness not, He is light of the world. Remember we are loved beyond measure by Him. The Bible says to treat others with kindness as you would want to be treated yourself.  I know sometimes we get down in the dumps, we just don't know how to feel. We feel like someone just came and punched us in th…

Finding Acceptance

If you were to ask a group of young people what they wanted most from their peers, you'd probably get a variety of different answers.

Some may say love, or support, or maybe even respect. But what all those boil down to is acceptance. 

We all want to feel accepted by the people around us. We want to be validated and be a part of the crowd.

So we may do and say things that we normally wouldn't. Because if we say and do those things, then the people around us will accept us.

But why do we crave the acceptance of others? Why do we crave feeling validated by someone who is in the same state of humanity as we are?

Human acceptance will never be enough. We'll only keep living the people-pleasing life that is shallow and based on other people. We will never find true joy from that kind of life.

But, God offers us something different. Something that is far more satisfying than the life of people-pleasing.
