Am I Enough?
Have you ever had the thought “this is too small, or not good enough?”
For example, have you been in a situation where someone is asking for money to raise for a charity or a family in need and all you have is like $1 maybe $5 and you decide to just not give it because its “not enough.”
Have you ever had the thought “I should text her, I should call her, we should hang out, but I don’t know she probably wouldn’t like me, she probably doesn’t want to deal with my kids, well I can’t relate to her so it probably wouldn’t be good to hang out, she has enough people to tell her she’s amazing I don’t need to.”
ALL OF THIS! I have done!
On a daily basis, I tell myself “it’s too small, it’s not enough”
My head: “the house isn’t clean enough, my kids are patient enough, I didn’t get enough bible reading done today, I didn’t donate to my friends go-fund me, nah I’m not going to text her shell think it’s weird” so on and so on it goes ALL DAY!
Friends this is so wrong. Every little bit counts. For everything.
If that friend who gave me a $5 gift card to Starbucks decided it was too small of a gift I would have never had that nice quiet moment to myself with a hot cup of coffee.
If the 200 people who decided to donate $5 to that go-fund me decided it wasn’t enough, that little girl would have been $1,000 short for her surgery.
In a time of need if my friend didn’t come over and bring me dinner and let me word vomit all over her where would I be emotionally? If she doubted herself and thought I didn’t need her would I have been able to pull through it?
If the little boy with the 5 barley loaves and 2 fish decided it wasn’t enough and kept it for himself Jesus wouldn’t have been able to perform one of the biggest miracles.
So much in our lives we belittle ourselves and think there is something bigger and better out there someone else can offer.
If we are offering nothing to God, he will have nothing to use. BUT here’s the good news friends! God can take what little we have and turn it into something great!
So, my question for us is: How much or any am I giving to God?
What’s holding us back?
