Wednesday Worship: Enough

This morning, our little one crawled in bed with us. At one point, she snuggled up close to me and curled her head into my shoulder. I leaned my cheek against her red curls, and she turned squeezing both arms around my neck. Patting my shoulder gently, she whispered, “Mommy.” That was all. That was enough. And I realized she was right. I have enough. More than enough. And all of this is because of what I have in Jesus.

My morning walk this morning found my steps a bit brighter as I reveled in the love of my daughter and my Savior. I could smell the sweet fragrance of flowers in the air. Lush green lawns trimmed by the retirees in the neighborhood. Cheery waves of greeting from other moms pushing strollers full of children. Every sense heightened, I talked with God as I do every morning while I walk. I breathed my thanks for how He has given me so much. And the lyrics to one of my favorite songs came into my head, so I sang while I walked.

Enough is written by Louis Giglio and Chris Tomlin, and performed by Chris Tomlin, but it’s also been recorded by Jeremy Camp and BarlowGirl. It speaks of the thirst within, the promise of satisfaction with Jesus. This life isn’t about stuff or things. Even though we experience it, life isn’t about the unbearable heartbreaks that we undergo. And as often as I want to believe it, this life isn’t about me. It’s about Jesus. It’s about relationship. And as I look at all the “things” He has blessed me with, I realize that every relationship, every heartache, every possession would be empty without Him. But He makes it enough for each day. Because He is enough. He is the center of everything. Every inhale and exhale is His, because He is my breath of life. He is worth living for.

All of you is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with your love
And all I have in you is more than enough

You are my supply
My breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You are my reward
Worth living for
Still more aweesome than I know

And all of you is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with your love
And all I have in you is more than enough

You are my supply
My breath of life
Still more awesome than I know
You’re my coming King
You’re my everything
Still more awesome than I know

And all of you is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with your love
And all I have in you is more than enough

More than all I am
More than all I need
You are more than enough for me
More than all I know
More than all I can say
You are more than enough

And all of you is more than enough for all of me
For every thirst and every need
You satisfy me with your love
And all I have in You is more than enough

Amen and amen! What is your breath of life today?

One response to “Wednesday Worship: Enough”

  1. Angie, these lyrics not only spoke to my heart but moved me to send them to Juliana who is headed to Benin today. This is my prayer for her, that she would find Jesus more than enough for her every need while there. May God’s peace and blessing flood over your soul. We love you.
