My mind immediately fills with the thought “He is more than enough for me“.
But then it quickly switches to when I’ve had enough! You know what I’m talking about…I’m sure you’ve been there too. You just want to scream out: “That’s it! I’ve had it! That’s enough!”
It happened earlier today. My son was running back and forth behind me on the couch. Occasionally pulling my hair. I was trying to do something on the computer. I kept pretty much pushing him out of the way so I could do what I wanted. Finally I threw up my hands and shouted at him “okay that’s enough Thomas” and put him on the floor.
I felt bad. Guilty. Mommy too sucked into the computer to pay attention to the little one. He just wants Mommy to play.
So we start again and of course he still loves me because I’m mommy. He’s forgotten all about it in 10 seconds, but I remember.
And I’m thankful. That HE truly is enough. And that in all my failures and continuing to not get it right, HE never threw his hands up in despair shouting at me that HE had had enough.
Instead, He stretched His arms out wide on a tree and was enough to pay my debt.
Yes, HE is more than enough for me.
