There will never be enough money for the school your child attends.
There will never be enough quality healthcare for all Americans.
There will never be enough resources to help the poor.
There will never be enough presents under the tree to satisfy every member of your family at Christmas.
There will never be enough time to handle everything you are responsible for.
There will never be a person in your life who doesn’t disappoint you.
There will never be a clean enough house to satisfy you.
There will never be enough sex to give you all the pleasure you desire.
There will never be enough hugs and kisses from your children to warm your heart fully.
There will never be enough exercise programs and diets to give you the body you think you need to have.
There will never be enough converts as a result of your ministry.
There will never be enough time alone with God to make you feel like you’re truly spiritual.
There will never be enough of anything until the One who is more than enough returns.
And when that happens, you will either have more than enough, or nothing at all.
- Watch therefore, for you know neither the day nor the hour. Matthew 25:13
- For to everyone who has will more be given, and he will have an abundance. But from the one who has not, even what he has will be taken away. Matthew 25:29
- Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away. Revelation 21:5-6
- Behold, I am coming soon, bringing my recompense with me, to repay each one for what he has done. Revelation 22:12
