He is enough

I have been pondering the word contentment for years…

more than pondering

… actually wrestling with

… dwelling on and desiring to know what true contentment looks and feels like.

The dictionary describes contentment as:

1. the state of being contented; satisfaction; ease of mind.
    peace of mind; mental or emotional satisfaction    
2. to be possessed of unfailing strength
    a) to be strong, to suffice, to be enough, to be satisfied, to be contented

Tucked away in the midst of these definitions is:
              ... to be enough

But sometimes, I admit that I am not satisfied, my life does not posses unfailing strength, I am not strong, where I am at - does not suffice, it is not enough...

… and then…

I go to the foot of the cross and I see my savior with His arms stretched out and I ponder his words...

He said " it is finished"
it is completed

... it is enough

I treasure these words...

because of what He did…
because of Him… it is enough…

He is enough … For I have learned that His unfailing strength, suffices, satisfies all my needs, all my concerns, all my longings, and all my desires…

…He is Enough

When he had received the drink, Jesus said, "It is finished." With that, he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. John 19:30
