You are enough

Goodnight little ones, this single mother says to her already sleeping children.  So many days I had been afraid, not knowing how I will ever do this on my own, but tonight everything feels O.K.  By your grace I have learned that even when I have obstacles that are yet overcome, there is nothing to fear because you are there, so no need to worry.  Tonight I am not worried.  Tonight I know myself and my kids are OK.  We seek to have our outside needs met, yet you truly do wish for us to prosper in our souls first, and this is what you have done for me.  You have shown me I’m accepted and met my deepest longing which is to be satisfied with love, to be loved.  There was a time when I didn’t believe this phrase, it was something that we Christians like to say, however as we say this, we are still reaching out our hands for more satisfaction towards things that do not satisfy like food, a lover, an occupation, a drug, an alcoholic beverage.  We think to ourselves “if only I can have… ____” fill in the blank.  That is what we can honestly refer to as an idol.  An idol back in Moses’s day was something made from wood or metal that people worshiped, yet it was obviously lifeless.  Now, because of your grace you have taught me that anything I reach my hand toward for satisfaction is just like one of those man made idols, lifeless.. because only you can truly satisfy.  When I get alone with you and when I hear your words come to my heart it gives me life.  It gives me love.  I love you Lord.  I worship you Lord.  You are enough.
