Why is everyone hungry for more? “More, more,” they say. “More, more.” I have God’s more-than-enough, More joy in one ordinary day Than they get in all their shopping sprees. -Psalm 4:6-7 MSG
Shopping? Did someone say shopping spree? Ooh baby! And before you guys out there shake your heads and say “Women!” or start groaning, don’t forget – it may not look the same, but shopping sprees do tend to happen for most people. For some a trip to the grocery store, the lumberyard, or a yard sale can bring on a shopping spree!
But is that what you want? A temporary high that can only be found in the right convergence of events: the time, the place, the money, the item? Well, yeah, maybe sometimes.
But really, you have what is needed for not just a joy-spree, but for an every-day, life-altering, joy — God’s “more-than-enough”! And it’s there, available, on a normal, “ordinary” day! Pretty cool!
Oh Father – thank you so much for what You provide – life and breath, stability, hope-in-suffering … joy that can eclipse life circumstances or a blink-of-an-eye high. Please remind me of Your “more-than-enough” — especially during those moments when I’m thinking “more, more.”
- Thank God for joy that is available in your everyday moments.
- Ask Him to help you look to Him for His ever-present joy when you’re longing for a temporary happy-moment or thing.
