One Word - ENOUGH!!!!

Happy New Year - 2014. It's been a long time - way too long. But I'm working on a project that is going to keep me from disappearing as long as I have and it's something G-O-O-D.

Need a HINT?

Putting the pen to the paper...hint, hint

In the meantime, I'm feelin' the need to share my ONE WORD - 365. 

Are you ready?

It is.....

Enough

Out of all the words that I could've chosen, I feel as if ENOUGH is it for this year.

I've had ENOUGH of being complacent.

I've had ENOUGH of not trusting God, ENOUGH.

No longer will I allow myself to feel that I'm not good ENOUGH - I am cause I Am says that I Am - ENOUGH.

When I have  ENOUGH on my plate, I need to say to myself, "ENOUGH" and mean ENOUGH.

When the things around me become overwhelming and I feel like I can't take another step, breathe another breath or whisper another prayer, I know that my heavenly Father knows that I've had ENOUGH. 

Today, this very minute, I'm committing to being more than ENOUGH in my marriage, in my relationships, in my time spent alone - enjoying the silence.

I will not throw up my hands and say, "ENOUGH" when the dog barfs on the bed, when the 16 year old princess turns her music up full blast, when I've heard the same story told over and over again, or when I'm in pain and don't think I can deal with it anymore.

I will say "ENOUGH" when I can't eat anymore, think anymore, go anymore or do anymore.

I won't say, "ENOUGH" when I am denial and need more sleep, not drinking ENOUGH water or taking the time to be still.

2 Corinthians 12:8 says, "Three different times I begged the Lord to take it away. Each time he said, “My grace is all you need {paraphrased -ENOUGH}. My power works best in weakness.” 

I'm going out on a limb here but I think that Paul has just been told, "You may not be ENOUGH in your weakness but I am more than ENOUGH."

How about you? Are you ENOUGH?

Good thoughts. Yes, God's more than enough...for each of us. We have Him and He will provide. We just listen in our daily lives, for His words. Good to hear from u again!

Welcome back! It's good to pop over here and see you posting. I've missed your sweet wisdom.

Excellent word for the year and your reasoning for it...awesome! My word this year is "freedom."

Looking forward to seeing what you have to say this year.
