In 2017, my OLW was ROOTED. (I'll put links at the end of the post to all my One Little Words since I started this in 2009, so you can meditate on the rather pathetic fact that I have the very same issues every single year.)
I started thinking about my 2018 word about a month ago, and there was really only ever one word on my list: ENOUGH. I want to remind myself that God's daily provision will be ENOUGH for me, without hoarding or fretting. He will also give me what I need so that I can be ENOUGH for what the people around me need from me.
Chances are that my provision won't come from the sky; it might even come in a lopsided truck like the one in the photo. But I know from experience that God will provide for me, and that His provision will be ENOUGH. I don't need to worry that I'm missing out on something I should have had or that someone else's manna is a tiny bit more delicious than mine. (Even Jesus limited Himself to one human life - and it was ENOUGH.)
