Think about the phrase “God is more than enough.” Do you believe that? If so, do you live that way? In this book, Jim Berg brings us face to face with those questions and the reality of our answers.
Do you ever struggle with “What ifs” or “If onlys” or “I don’t like” thoughts? Dr. Berg shows that the basis for discontent is unbelief, and gives five compelling biblical statements to combat that unbelief.
What about worry? That is something with which I can struggle. Jim Berg uses the phrase “noisy soul” and “quiet soul.” When I worry, my soul is not quiet. At the root of that worry, is something I don’t believe God for. For example, recently John and Jesse went on a backpacking trip in Colorado for a long weekend. They didn’t have cell signal to communicate with us through most of their backpacking time, and I began to worry about them—a noisy soul. I was reminded once again that God is more than enough. With my trust rooted in Him, I didn’t need to worry. Worry doesn’t solve anything, while faith quiets my heart. Prayer, which I can do, cements that trust.
I love having a quiet soul and dislike it if my soul is noisy. If you ever have noise in your soul, I highly recommend God Is More Than Enough as a great book to read this summer.
Trusting in Jesus,
“Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden,
and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you, and
learn of me; for I am meek and lowly in heart: and ye
shall find rest unto your souls. For my yoke is easy, and
my burden is light.”
