Mom E-votional : Not Good Enough?

Eczema devotional More BetterThink 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.

Bible verse:

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

The challenge is with the definition of “good,” right? My struggle is “how can there be so much pain and suffering in the world if God is good?” I have my own reconciliations, but it’s a tough one. 🙂

I understand, I think of it as our faith will be superficial if we go to God just so we have good days on earth.. not sure if that’s biblical correct but makes sense to me 🙂 Hugs!
