If God is Enough, You'll Always Have Enough!

 I just thought I'd share today's devotional from Max Lucado. It spoke to me, so maybe it will speak to someone else who needs to hear this today! 

Let’s face it–anxiety or worry have no advantages! They ruin our health, rob us of joy, and change nothing! Our day stands no chance against the terrorists of the Land of Anxiety.

But Christ offers a worry-bazooka. Remember how He taught us to pray? “Give us this day our daily bread. Matthew 6:11” This simple sentence unveils God’s provision plan: live one day at a time.
Worry gives small problems big shadows. Corrie ten Boom said, “Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength.” And Romans 8:28 affirms: “Every detail in our lives of love for God is worked into something good.”

Most anxiety stems, not from what we need, but from what we want. Philippians 4:4 says, “delight yourselves in the Lord, yes, find your joy in Him at all times!”
If God is enough, you’ll always have enough!



I have times where I have anxiety or feelings of worry and fear, usually about the smallest most inconsequential things, like clothes, or workouts, or food. I also often find myself worrying about "tomorrow".... or just wanting the day to be over or the weekend to hurry up and come-but that is no way to live! I want to really start focusing on living in the present and taking ONE day at a time, being thankful for each and every day that I have.

  1. Wow thank you so much! I really needed this!
    "Worry does not empty tomorrow of its sorrows; it empties today of its strength" is my favorite quote! and I really needed to read it again as a reminder...I have been having anxiety lately as well over little things: workouts/ diet/ decreasing body fat/ building muscle....I need to remember that each day is part of the PROCESS...and each day needs to be focused on as its OWN DAY and tomorrow should be left for tomorrow. Thank you for this reminder!!! love it :)

  2. So true. I've wasted countless hours worrying about things that never did come to pass. A good reminder to enjoy the gift of today & being "in the moment".
