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.

Live Life Unedited.

Hey guys! :D For those of you who don't know me, I'm Faith and I blog over at Stories by Firefly and Chosen Vessels. I'm so excited to be joining this blog and these lovely young ladies. 


We edit things, don't we? Maybe you don't that much—or maybe you've just never thought of it this way before—but I realized recently that I edit a lot of things.

Books, stories, blog posts, emails, text messages, social media posts...and the list goes on.

And in a way that's good, really good. When we are angry, upset, or hurt, we should be careful what we say and take time to work through our feelings before we spout off something hurtful. (Ranting on social media is rarely a good idea. *wink*)

But what about any other time? What about when we retract something, click that backspace key and remove our personality?

Are we bettering the original? Improving ourselves and our life stories? Or are we telling ourselves it's not right, it's not good enough, it just doesn…

Don't Be Afraid to Stand Out

In our culture, there seems to be a lot of pressure to conform. You know, to fit in with everyone you're friends with, and only do what is 'culturally acceptable'.

I find that there's a lot of pressure (shall we call it peer pressure?), especially during the teen years. There's pressure to fit in - by getting into the cliques, by wearing "cool" clothes, and just by generally blending in with everyone around us.

We want to be liked by our peers, and there's nothing wrong with that.

But I'm here today to tell you: You don't have to conform. You don't have to be like everyone around you. You don't have to be the teenager who rebels, the guy who sleeps around, or the girl who goes to every single party. You don't have to be popular to be loved.

Because that's what the culture says is cool. That's what the world around us is doing.

You can rise above that. You can be so much more. Don't listen to what the world says about y…
