Christ is Sufficient

I've been thinking on this the past few days.  On Tuesday, someone reminded me that I am God's girl.  For me in that moment, that said "God is enfolding me in His care, and He is enough."  In the minutes that followed, I had a beautiful revelation.  This past summer, in Texas, when it was hot, and I was tired, I often took my pen and wrote on my arm to remind me of this truth of the sufficiency found in Christ.  When I am not enough, He sustains me.  When I cannot proceed, He enables me.

Let's take a peek...

 Okay, here's me, suiting someone up for the leap of faith.  Note the sunburnt arms.  :-P  Now let's flip the picture and zoom in on my arm.

Look carefully.  Do you see it?  Christ is sufficient.  Jesus is enough.  The Lord will sustain me.

Colossians 2:10  "And in Him you have been made complete, and He is the head over all rule and authority."

Is that not comforting?  Christ is sufficient, dear friends!

Thank you. Beautiful. Just when I think I'm believing this all the time, my lack of faith shows through at some point in my day :-( Although this is discouraging, I press on, forgetting what is past... and then you come along and remind me, again, that He really IS sufficient. Lord I believe - help my unbelief. Thank you Jesus!

I love your little crib notes on your arm :o) It's a wonderful conversation-starter for folks, isn't it?

The ones on my hand? Yeah, they were for memorizing American lifeguarding stuff so I could work on it throughout the day. :-)

And yes! Great opportunities.
