The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas

The Reward for Surviving Rough Seas
We are all like sea shells tossed about in rough waters and being re-shaped in wondrous ways. But have you ever contemplated the notion that sea shells have to complete their journey through the rough waters before they get to rest on the shore? Yeah, we are ALL like sea shells and Heaven is The Great Shore.

Enough :)

Greetings All,
Let's talk about having enough.
Enough is a really big deal.
It has boundaries.
It has borders.
It almost has some geographical properties.

ENOUGH is when you open the pantry and you have what you need to make the meal you want to make.

ENOUGH is when you have the ability to have choices about what you can cook.

ENOUGH is when you use the last of the toilet paper and you don't panic cause there is another roll left.

ENOUGH is when there is gas in the car and you don't have to anticipate if you can get somewhere without running out.

ENOUGH is when you need to go the doctor and can pay the office visit charge right then.

ENOUGH is when you can share whatever you have without causing harm to your own family or self.

ENOUGH is comfortable.

But there are other places: TOO LITTLE and TOO MUCH

TOO LITTLE is when you reach for something and it is not there.

TOO LITTLE is when you are it mentally, physically, emotionally, socially, or faith starved.

TOO LITTLE is when you look at others and yearn for things you see them with.

TOO LITTLE is sad, and lonely, and desperate sometimes.

TOO LITTLE and TOO MUCH are close cousins.

TOO MUCH is when things begin to overflow and you have no place to put them.

TOO MUCH is when you feel entitled and lazy...mentally, physically, emotionally, socially... and when you grow lethargic in your faith.

TOO MUCH is when your possessions, or your job, or your life begins to get too heavy for you to bear.

TOO LITTLE and TOO MUCH are difficult geographic places to thrive in.

God, thank you for ENOUGH.
Please keep us from TOO LITTLE and TOO MUCH.
Thank you for loving us and blessing us.
Help us to share your love with all we meet.

In Him,

It was on my heart this morning.
Been doing quite a bit of writing recently.
But you my friend, have probably already noticed that:)

Big Hugs to you & yours,
