Just enough

Many of us go thru life living a “just enough” mentality. We want to do just enough so that we can get by in life.

So in our professional lives it may be just enough to ensure we get a paycheck.

At home it is just enough so that we can see another day.

In our Christian living it is just enough when we go to church on Saturday or Sunday.

“Now to him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us,” Ephesians 3:20


I want to be doing abundantly and exceedingly more in Christ and for Christ.

As a Christian you may have experienced times when you said this:

“I don’t feel like praying right now”

“I don’t feel the worship service right now and don’t want to sing”

“I don’t feel like going to church”

“I don’t feel like being nice or Godly”

Or even scarier, sometimes you don’t even think these things because you have continually created a habit of just doing enough and then all of a sudden you are in a place where your not as close to God as you would like to be.

I was a “Just enough” Christian… what woke me up? One night after a long and stressful day I started praying and realized I could not remember The Lord’s Prayer! That shook me like nothing else could… a prayer that I had prayed for a majority of my life I just could not remember and it made me realize how far I had come from God.

We can’t live our lives without the Holy Spirit… We can’t do more without Christ. Anything that we do will be “just enough” and won’t reflect God’s power.

In order for us to step into our fullness and give God everything, then it can’t be about us… it has to all be about God!

Food for thought: God loves us so much and just wants us to acknowledge HIM and submit to HIS will and not ours. The Holy Spirit will meet you where you are at and give you “exceedingly and abundantly” all that you need and ask for. All you need to do is ask!

Prayer: Father, hallowed be thy name. I pray Lord that your people will hunger and thirst for you. That their desires will be to decrease so that you may increase. May they worship you in spirit and in truth and call on your Holy Spirit, submitting to your power. In Jesus name. Amen

I became a Christian at a young age and baptized at the age of 13. My journey has been bittersweet. A majority of my life I have been a Christian. But not a Godly Woman. After many failures, tears and tribulation I realized that something in my Christian life had to change. No longer can I profess that I am a Christian but don’t show daily that Christ lives in me! No longer can I claim that I am HIS child when my thoughts, actions and deeds were not overflowing with HIS love. No longer could I live the way I was living and not seek him daily in prayer, scripture and worship. As the Lord blessed me with that knowledge I felt him also calling me to write my journey and share my thoughts, learning and mistakes with others. Hence the reason for 911. Not only was it a crises in my life to become a Godly Woman but as I delved into scripture to understand how to be Godly, I realized that we are living in crazy world where the desire to be Godly was no longer important. Many boast that they are a Christian and weekly attend Church, but lack the Godly qualities that Christ seeks in ALL of his followers. My deepest desire is to serve Christ faithfully, obey HIM joyfully, trust HIM always, seek HIM eternally and become his close friend so that I can share in his truth and knowledge. I pray that this blog blesses you and provide you with the strength, courage and wisdom to be a Godly Man or Woman.
