On days when we feel less than, it helps to recall how God has made us more than enough in Christ. By His grace, we can live a more than ordinary life, touched as we are with His sacred love and light.
We are more than we know, more than we see, more than we think or experience. With Holy Spirit taking up residence within, we are fully equipped to face anything this world may throw at us.
Though we don’t always feel strong, God’s word reminds us we are more than conquerors in Christ, far more than our current circumstances may suggest.

The poem below came out of a desire to live out this glorious truth, to be on fire for Christ when life makes us cringe and want to run away and hide.
More than enough
Sometimes I want to cry, ‘enough!’
when life’s pain becomes too much and all
I want to do is hide away
Though I can never escape your loving
touch—you, the Lord of abundance
where enough is superseded by such
lavish, extravagant love
You are a God of more than enough
and a Man of Sorrows who bore more
than we know for us on the cross, with arms
stretched wide—a spear in your side
When my love burns down to a flickering
flame, my faith is insufficient and
the eyes of my heart grow dim
may I remember how you willingly gave
everything to die for my sin; and may it
stir these cold embers within
into more than enough to live my life
as a witness to your love, as I learn
to speak freely, joyfully again and let
you shine bright like drops of rain
Happy to be a slow Saturday slider as I add my poetic words to fellow word-weavers offerings at the five-minute-friday link up being hosted at Kate Motaung’s site. This week’s prompt is ‘enough’ and you are warmly invited to join us here, and to read the great variety of words being shared.
