Not Enough

November 4, 2012 — 2 Comments

Enough by Will Davis, Jr.This time last week, we began our trek to Colorado.

We had a sense of the size of our living quarters, but not an accurate measure. So, we took just what we could fit in the car and would return for the rest of our stuff later.

In a week, it’s easy to tell we don’t have enough. We have too much. We’re only using a small percentage of what we packed. In the car. Not enough, too much.

Just before our move, I started reading Enough: Finding More by Living with Less by Will Davis, Jr. and it helped prepare my heart and mind for this season. We’re still “Moving Toward Enough” though we’re not there yet.

I’ve adopted this prayer from Prov 30:7-9

Two things I ask of you;
deny them not to me before I die:
Remove far from me falsehood and lying;
give me neither poverty nor riches;
feed me with the food that is needful for me,
lest I be full and deny you
and say, “Who is the Lord?”
or lest I be poor and steal
and profane the name of my God.

We are loving Colorado, and loving this living for the Lord. We are richer than we’ve ever been. Thank you, Lord, for our daily bread.
