Sufficiency in God alone

“And God is able to make all grace abound to you, so that having all sufficiency in all things at all times, you may abound in every good work.” ‭‭2 Corinthians‬ ‭9:8‬ ‭ESV‬‬

Do you ever feel like there isn’t enough time in a day? I wake up at 0430, I’m out the door to work at 0515-0530. I get home at 1700. Over 12 hours of every day, M-F are dedicated to commuting and working to support someone else’s vision, someone else’s purpose. By the time I get home, I have to cook dinner, clean up dishes and collapse onto my couch. 

I’m not trying to make you feel sorry for me. That schedule pays my bills. But…it doesn’t make my heart sing. I enjoy my actual job…I help people feel less scared of the dentist. But…it doesn’t make my heart sing. 

God’s promise above is that He will give me the grace to be sufficient in all things at all times, that I may abound in every good work. 

Over the next few days, weeks, that is going to be my touchstone verse. If it is in God’s power to give me the grace to abound in every good work, who am I to stand in his way?
