My God's Enough

Here lately I have been listening to a lot of Barlow Girl's music in the car. While I really like a lot of their songs, recently my repeat song has been Psalm 73 (My God's Enough).

 Here are some of the lyrics:

I've had enough of living life for only me
and reaching just for the things
that keep destroying me
so sick of envying the lives of so many I see
somehow believing that they have what I need

 I can't explain why I suffer though I live for You
those who deny You, oh
they have it better than I do
cover my eyes now so that
my heart can finally see
that in the end only You mean anything

my God's enough for me
this world has nothing I need
in this whole life I've seen
my God's enough, enough for me 

Who have I in heaven but You
Nothing I desire but You
My heart may fail but not You
You are mine forever

 This song is so true to the way we are sometimes. We take our eyes off of God and start thinking that others have more than we do. We continually seem to lose sight of all that God has done for us and what we have in Him. It sad that He sometimes has to "cover our eyes" so that our hearts can see in the end only God and the things that we do for Him in this life mean anything at all.

I want my life to show that my God is enough for me.

My God Is...

As part of my young married group from church, I am reading Experiencing God by Blackaby. I have just started but already the book has been a great motivator to want to experience God in His many characteristics and by his many names.

My God Is...
  • the great I AM
  • My witness 
  • the bread of life
  • my hope
  • my wonderful counselor
  • the strength of my salvation
  • my comfort
  • my hiding place
My God is all of that and so much more. I want to fully experience God in all of these areas. I can "know" that He is all of these things, but I want to truly experience Him. That is my prayer today.

My Cat. Not because I want it, but because it chooses to stay. When Ben and I moved into our new home, we quickly figured out that this cat also lives here. We don't feed it, but it chooses to stay anyway. It spends most of its days laying on the picnic table on the deck or sitting in the kitchen window (on the outside)... It meows up a storm when I cook and watches me wash dishes. Sometimes it does get quite annoying, but I have begun to enjoy the company during my days here at the house alone, at least when I wash dishes there is someone else there with me. Best of all the cat makes a good photography subject :P

Maybe I should give it a name?
