Christ is enough.

In this world there are certain things that will make us happy. Whether it be your favorite food, clothes, good grades, fun games, the list goes on. Now those things are all fun but there's only one person who can truly bring us unending joy and that one person is Jesus. You can have all the money and the fame in the world and still not have enough. With God, we have enough. He's all we need in life. He is the one who satisfies us and gives us that enough we need. So dont stress if you dont have what you want or whatever because in the end it wont last forever but God will. He is the only thing that will be forever in the end. He brings us unending joy.

And yeah for me, Christ is enough. Everything i need is in Him. What else do i need to ask more?

He > me.

Sometimes i get so caught up in this life.
I find myself so focused on me; on my vision, on my accomplishments (or failures), and on my future.
On my life.
Anyone else ever feel so consumed in their own self that they lose sight of this one huge truth?
Our lives are not our own.
Still so often i wrap myself in the worries in the life around me, striving to meet a certain goal or setting a certain expectation of how something will turn out.

It sort of reminds me of the story when Jesus calms the storm. While the storm was raging, the disciples were afraid, awaking Jesus and saying, "Aren't you concerned we could drown?"
Jesus calms the storm and then asks them, "What were you so afraid for? Do you have no faith?"
He doesn't say "I understand why you were afraid" instead He questions their doubt in His power over all things, in His concern and power over each of their lives.
In my own storms i admittedly begin to worry when i dont find much certainty or when i feel insecure. And in my victories, pride admittedly begins to creep into my heart. 

But then i am gently reminded this:


Yeah, He is greater than me. He is greater than the life around me, greater than anything i could do on my own.

So let me encourage you as i often have to encourage myself, let Him be Lord over your life.
He is greater than all trials we will face and He is also greater than all of our triumphs.

You are great because He is great. You are love because He is love. You live because He lives.

HE > ME.

Keep praying.

Have you ever noticed how just as you're losing hope, God works everything out..?

Isaiah 40 : 31 - But they who wait for the Lord shall renew their strength; they shall mount up with wings like eagles; they shall run and not be weary; they shall walk and not faint.

Lamentations 3 : 25 - The Lord is good to those who wait for Him, to the soul who seeks Him.

Micah 7 : 7 - But as for me, i will look to the Lord; I will wait for the God of my salvation; my God will hear me.

1 Thessalonians 5 : 17 - Pray without ceasing.

Whatever's going on right now, dont give up. Ever. Keep praying for it. Keep telling people about how you're keeping the faith because you know God has got it under control. Keep expecting it.. with that faith of yours that can move mountains. He has got it. He hears you!! He has a plan, and it's going to be great. It will happen at exactly the right moment. Not a second too late. He knows how much you can take and He knows that this is all for a great or purpose: His purpose. Keep on keepin' on because the creator of the universe is in control. There's no other like Him. And He loves you. So much..

You are worth it.

You are worth more than you could ever imagine.
Worth more than the number on the scale, or the hair product you use, or the shoes you wear.
More than the price tags on your clothes or your position on the career ladder, or even the number of followers you have on instagram or twitter.
Head cheerleader or high school drop out, miss popular or miss lonely, whether you love yourself or you cant stand to look in the mirror and feels like everything is falling apart--regardless of who you think you are.. the reality is that in Jesus Christ, you deserve someone who would give up their life for you; because in the eyes of God, you are treasured, loved, strong, and capable.
As a children of the living God--you're cherished, loved, and adored above all things by the Creator of all things for the glory of Him who is greater than all things.
