Reading John Piper's devotional today - A Godward Life - and was caught by an idea...the idea of enough.

Enough - in Jesus' words:"each day has enough trouble of its own." Matthew 6:34. You don't have to go seeking it...it will come to you. So don't spend your time moaning and groaning, but realize you and I are connected to One who says to the daily trouble..."enough."

That's good news...and a bunch of relief.

Oh, and on the other side of the coin, His presence with us by the Spirit is more than enough..."God will not let you be tempted beyond what you can bear. But when you are tempted, he will also provide a way out so that you can stand up under it." I Corinthians 10:13. As the Message translates it..."God will never let you down; He'll never let you be pushed past your limit; He'll always be there to help you come through it."

May you and I live in the content peace and joy of enough.
