Think with me, ‘my child’s skin is not good enough’, ‘the moisturizer is not good enough’; sometimes we start thinking ‘my career is not good enough’, ‘my ___________ is not good enough’. Some Not-Good-Enoughs are ‘good’ to improve, while others can easily lead to a joy-sapping way of life. For eczema, I do think the occasional use of prescription cream, daily use of moisturizer, some decent (though interrupted) sleep is good enough. In life, the benchmark varies widely for everyone.
Sometimes as a Christian, I do guard myself when I start to think that God is not Good Enough. Hush.. how can you say that? God is God! I do think that this is very possible, although taboo to say it out right. It is a very real challenge, in daily living, in our performance-driven, results-oriented, materialistic society to remind ourselves and actually believe and live by the notion that God is good enough for me. He is sufficient, He meets my needs, He is what I want.
Philippians 4:19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus.
Dear God, I pray that I will have the wisdom not to go after things in life that I don’t need. I pray that we will all find contentment and gratitude in life, despite living with eczema. I pray that we will find You to be enough.
God is Enough
