This is possibly one of the biggest problems in many areas of our lives. We just don’t know when enough is enough. I believe that joy, rest, and peace come from contentment. Contentment comes from enough.
Many people spend their best years trying to get to the next house, the next deal, the next thrill, the next marriage, the next look, the next invitation, the next car, the next (you fill in the blank.) The question we should be asking ourselves is, when will I finally be ok with me and where I am now. When will enough be enough?
I look at the US political landscape (don’t get me started,) singers, actors, wall street and influencers etc. and clearly enough is not enough for most of them. When you look at what is happening around the world, this seems to be a reoccurring issue.
The first words in Psalm 23 says; the Lord is my shepherd, I shall not want. The entire psalm is the picture of rest, assurance, confidence and having enough.
Find that place where you can sit down, rest, take a deep breath and not think about that next thing. KT
