God's More Than Enough















"When I call, you give me answers. God, take my side! Once, in a tight place, you gave me room;Now, I'm in trouble again: grace me! hear me! You rabble-how long do I put up with your scorn? How long will you lust after lies? How long will you live crazed by illusion? Look at this: Look Who got picked by God! He listens the split second I call to him. Complain if you must, but don't lash out. Keep your mouth shut, and let your heart do the talking. Build your case before God and wait for his verdict. Why is everyone hungry for more? "More, more," they say. "More, more." I have God's more-than-enough, More joy in one ordinary day than they get in all their shopping sprees. At day's end I'm ready for sound sleep. For you, God, have put my life back together." Psalm 4: 1-8 The Message

God is always there for us. He listens when we call. All we need is found in Him. Through all the circumstances of life, we find peace when we realize "God's more-than-enough."

Seeking His peace,

Andrea

"For you oh God have put my life together"
and that is not a one off in the womb nor a one off after a crisis but an ongoing work of the grace of God.
Thank you for the reminder.

Just last night I read a post where they don't spend enough time in prayer since they blog..it seems just the opposite with me...I have found such truly wonderful Christian women on here and men that I feel closer to our Lord every day because of bloggers such as yourself.
May God Bless You and that Marine of yours. So happy you liked my post. You are more than welcome to put it on yours for others to use
Love
Maggie

Sometimes we find it so difficult to just trust that He will be there for us, but if we stop and listen, He is there and he is "more-than-enough".

Oh Andrea! I LOVE this passage in the Message! How HE WANTS US TO KNOW THAT!!!

I love this! Thank you for sharing--perfect for me to find on a MONDAY! :)

Love you!

P.S. Max is a happy lark in my backyard. I went out to feed him and as I went back in the house to wash his water pan and bring him out fresh water, he had finished eating and as I bent over to put down his water pan, he had gone and picked up his favorite toss toy and hit me in the back of the leg with it! "Play Mommy" seemed to be what he was saying! Of course we played. And yes, I was late for work.

Thanks for continuing to pray for Max.
