God is enough-nough…never to much-uch…You are enough for me…

Savannah hummed along with the radio as she finished up her breakfast. She slipped her shoes on, checked her hair in the mirror one last time and headed out the door. As her car started, the song came on again, and she smiled. What a wonderful thought, right? She took a deep breath as that nice thought was replaced with nervous jitters. This would be the third interview, and she could only go so long before she really would need a job. Unless she found a husband, but that was going nowhere. There didn’t seem to be any single Christian guys out there, much less up to her standards. Not for the first time did she wonder if she should try something other than waiting. She stopped a red light, and remembered where she was going. She frantically pulled out her phone and got the directions up just as the light turned green. She was only a block away.

The world was a grayer and more frustrating place as Savannah stepped back into the parking lot. “We don’t need anyone of your skill set” “We’ll contact you if we have any open positions.” Like she hadn’t heard that before. She started heading home. On the sidewalk, she saw a couple, and that longing began again. She slammed the brakes at the stop sign a little too hard. If only…

God is enough-nough…never too much-uch…

The chorus echoed behind her thoughts, and she stopped her self-pity for a moment, but then her phone rang.

“Hi Lana!…You’re what? Sorry, can you repeat that? A job! That’s, uh, great! Congratu-”

The car lurched forward, and Savannah shrieked, almost dropping the phone. A blue truck honked loudly from behind her.

“What? No it’s fine. I think I got rear-ended. No no I’m fine, just, I need to call you back.”

She dealt with the more than annoyed driver, the insurance that would cover it, but would increase her rates, and by the end of it, she felt like crying. She was finally on her way back to her apartment, but she would need a ride while her car would be getting fixed. That on top of no job, no husband, and the futileness of her future just croweded in on her again. She felt crushed with all this weight and responsibility. What was she going to do? What if it didn’t all work? What if she got evicted, what if the car couldn’t be fixed? She was feeling a little hysterical, and finally the tears began rolling down her face.

God is enough-nough…

There it was again. She’d had that song stuck in her head the whole day. She pulled into the driveway and turned off the car. She just sat there for a moment, and let the song roll through her mind. And for the first time, she listened to the words.

Lord is my Shepherd, I shall not want

Takes away my fears, you restore my soul…

Quench my inner thirst, there’s something more in life

No money, cars, relationships compare to joy in Christ…

God is enough-nough

You are enough for me.

Savannah bowed her head and poured her fears and dreams out to the Lord. She didn’t need them. God was all she needed.

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to his own glory and excellence, by which he has granted to us his precious and very great promises, so that through them you may become partakers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption that is in the world because of sinful desire.

(2 Peter 1:3-4, ESV)
