Midweek Push: God is Enough

Hey Friends!

We would like to introduce you to our friend and sister in Christ, Andriea (Aundie) Knight. She is a sister in the Lord who is a proud parent of a beautiful son, Avion. She is in the transition of her life to becoming a faith walking Christian. 


"Yes, my soul, find rest in God; my hope comes from him. Truly he is my rock and my salvation; he is my fortress, I will not be shaken. My salvation and my honor depend on God; he is my mighty rock, my refuge. Trust in him at all times, you people; pour out your hearts to him, for God is our refuge."
(Psalm 62:5-8, NIV)

When God is ALL I Have

As I look back over my childhood, teenage years, and even part of my adult years, I vaguely remember having a male figure to protect me from other people.  My father was a verbally abusive alcoholic, so he couldn’t protect me.  My cousin was the physical abuser, so of course, he couldn’t protect me.  And then there were boyfriends that were abusers and neglectors, so they DEFINITELY couldn’t protect me! For a while, I was left to protect myself, or so I thought.  BUT that wasn’t good enough. Why? Because I didn’t know how to protect myself from others.

I was paralyzed from the abuse that I didn’t know what protection was.

Then I went through a string of recent trials over the past 3 years that almost broke me for good.  I had a blessed child out of wedlock where the father wasn’t there the majority of the pregnancy and birth.  Next, my son and I were treated as though we didn’t exist. After that, my mother was involved in a car wreck where she was supposed to die, however, the Lord saw her through. Then she passes away from an illness nine months later. After my mother passed, I remember my older sister saying out loud, “who is going to protect me now?” I pondered on that statement and all I could say was “God.”

I looked back and realized that God has ALWAYS and STILL IS protecting me from myself and my enemies. God had allowed all those things to happen so that I would only see Him and no one else.

Psalm 62:5-8 states that we need to wait on the Lord and put our hope in God. He alone can save us from ANY situation or circumstance. He is our refuge; so our trust should not be solely on man or woman, it should be in God.

Trials in this life will happen, but if we learn to experience God and put our trust in Him, we can all say…WHEN GOD IS ALL I HAVE, GOD IS ALL I NEED.
