My God's Enough

Tonight we had our weekly women's Bible study at Becky's house. We are going through Beth Moore's study on Daniel. We are also watching the dvd's that go along with the study each week. Tonight was phenomenal! I can honestly say that God spoke to me tonight stronger than I have felt Him speak in a long time. It was powerful!

Then, I got in the car to come home and immediately this song started playing. I can't describe to you how appropriate the words of this song are to what the "message" was tonight at Bible study. I don't think it is a coincidence at all and I believe that God is moving in a powerful way to communicate this truth. The song is entitled "My God's Enough" by Barlow Girl and is based on Psalm 73:

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
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
I can't explain why I suffer though I live for You
Those who deny You 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
Who have I in heaven but You
Nothing I desire but You
My heart may fail but not You
You are mine forever


  1. thanks for sharing that Amy! what an awesome song!! what an awesome God!! becky

  2. I am definetly feeling like the Lord is opening my heart and mind lately, and I know he wants me to let go of all the worldly things I rely on, and strive to live the life that He wants me to live, not the way I want to live it. I am so thankful for his love and the strength he gives me every day! For the first time in my life, I have a thirst for Gods knowledge and it is such an uplifting feeling.

  3. I am so stubborn that God has to knock me off my feet to get my attention and that He did last week. I was very sick but I had to keep going because Cletus was out to sea and 4 kids needed me. I felt so tired, so drained, and physically awful. In desperation I confessed my need for him; not only for that moment but for everyday and everything.
    Not having grown up in this country and having spent much of my teen years away at boarding school I feel so inadequate in parenting. During this illness God also made me aware that He is by my side to help me through this process. My prayer is that my family and I will seek Him with all our hearts.
