Have You Ever Felt Like You Didn’t Have Enough
Have you ever felt like you just didn’t have enough? Like no matter how hard you worked or how much you saved, there was always something missing. It could be money, time, or even love. I’m sure we have all felt like this at one time, but what if I told you that there is a source of abundance that will never run dry? A source that will always meet your every need, no matter how big or small.
The source I am talking about is God. In Philippians 4:19, Paul writes, “And my God will meet all your needs according to the riches of his glory in Christ Jesus.” That’s a powerful statement!!! It means that no matter what you need, God has more than enough. He has abundant resources available to us, and He is more than willing to give us what we need to live a fulfilling life.
But it’s important to remember that these blessings come through Christ. Only through Him can we have a relationship with God and receive the blessings that He has for us. Without Christ, we would be cut off from God’s provision and left to fend for ourselves. But through Him, we have access to the riches of God’s glory.
So, how do we apply this verse in our lives? One way is to trust in God’s provision. I know this isn’t easy, but if we really have faith in the Lord, we should trust Him. Instead of worrying about our needs, we can trust that God will take care of them. We can also practice gratitude for the blessings that we already have, knowing that they all come from God.
Another way to apply this verse is to remember that our ultimate need is a relationship with God. It isn’t material needs that Paul is talking about. But, even if our material needs are met, we will still feel unfulfilled if we don’t have a relationship with God. So, we should make it our priority to seek God and grow in our relationship with Him.
And finally, this verse encourages us to share our blessings. As God provides for us, we should also be willing to share what we have with those in need. We can be a reflection of God’s provision in the world by being generous and kind to others.
25 “Therefore I tell you, do not worry about your life, what you will eat or drink; or about your body, what you will wear. Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothes? 26 Look at the birds of the air; they do not sow or reap or store away in barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them. Are you not much more valuable than they? 27 Can any one of you by worrying add a single hour to your life?
2 Corinthians 9:8
8 And God is able to bless you abundantly, so that in all things at all times, having all that you need, you will abound in every good work.
1 Timothy 6:17
17 Command those who are rich in this present world not to be arrogant nor to put their hope in wealth, which is so uncertain, but to put their hope in God, who richly provides us with everything for our enjoyment.
Philippians 4:19 is an excellent reminder that God is always there to meet our needs and that we can have a relationship with Him through Christ. We should trust in God’s provision, practice gratitude for our blessings, seek to grow in our relationship with God, and be generous and kind to others. So, next time you feel like you don’t have enough, remember that God has abundant resources available to you, and all you have to do is trust Him and reach out to Him.
I really needed this today! Thank you! God is soo good to us all the time!
I really needed this today! Thank you – God is so good to us!
Amen!! Sometimes it’s hard to keep the “line open” with God and truly thank Him for all he’s done for me. Thank you for the reminder 🙂
I hope this reaches many people who need to know Jesus!
Yes. God is the answer. Have a good day.
May God bless you in all of your endeavors! We are abundantly blessed!
May God bless you Tania for sharing Who Jesus is with others. He is the only way, our only hope! He could appear any day to judge, we must know Him and be ready.
Thank you for this message today. We all are so blessed & just need to remember God will take care of us. Thank you for reminding us!
God is Good all the time and that gives me a peace that passes all understanding.
I agree with practicing gratitude daily because it sure helps my mindset. Thank you for sharing.
As a chronic worrier, Matthew 6:25 is my go-to Bible verse. I am reminded that his plan is in place and that I should trust in it.
You are so right about practicing gratitude. I always feel better when I count my blessings. Thank you for sharing.

Such a wonderful truth to be shared today! Thank you!
Thank you for that oh so important reminder that God gives us everything we have ❤️
Beautiful words of truth. God is so good to give us all we need as He sees fit❤️
Thank you for this beautiful reminder !
I loved the Bible passages today. I have a question,when I pray I always pray to God. Am I praying incorrectly? One passage says Blessings come through Christ. Only through Him can we have relations with God. So to have relationship with God you should first pray to Jesus Christ. Am I praying wrong? This is an sincere question. Please help
Rita, I understand your confusion. I’m not a theologian, so don’t take my answer as gospel. But, since God, Jesus, and Holy Spirit are the God Head, I think that praying to God is good. When you pray for help her on earth, then pray to Holy Spirit.
Thank you for taking time to explain/answer my question. It still is a little confusing to me. At least I believe ! TY again
Tania, I love all your posts, filled with good information and style, but your devotions are always right on the mark. You are a blessing to so many of us.
Great Reminders. Thank you.
You are so uplifting! I love your blog!
Have a blessed day!
Loved this Sunday devotional! Thanks!
Thank you Tania. I needed these words today.
I love you, your beautiful personality, smile and fashion but my favorite is how you encourage others to have the most precious gift ever and that is a relationship with Jesus Christ ❤️
This is excellent as a reminder to all of us. It’s so easy to get caught up in worldly things & situations. Your post & verses helps to put us back on track😊
Thank you Tania for this well written reminder!
Loved today’s devotional – such a good reminder!!
Thank you for this amazing reminder, God is always with us, and will provide to meet our needs, trust Him and draw ever closer to His word. Thank you for your fabulous posts, and reminders! Looking forward to your next great shopping finds! Love the daily verses shared!! Have a week filled with the joy and blessings each day brings!
I find that letting go so God can bless me is powerful and difficult. I always pray I can stay out of his way. The more I am given help the more I want to serve others. These Bible versus are true and from a loving Father in Heaven.
When I am feeling worried or uncertain of the future I sing the song, “Great I Thy Faithfullness”. “All I have needed, thy hands hath provided…” God has never failed me. In times that I have needed him the most, He has never failed me. Even if the answer wasn’t what I had hoped for, He has always been beside me and never failed to reveal his presence in my life.
Great lesson today. Thank you for these scripture references that reminds us of God’s provision. Blessings to you!
Thank you for sharing these beautiful Bible passages! Have a blessed Sunday!
Thank you for the Sunday message.
Want to share with you and all of your readers what a friend told me she does to help her remember to put her trust in the Lord. We all know on our money here in the United States that it says, “in God we trust”. Thus, she puts a penny in all sorts of places in her home–even kitchen drawers–to help her to remember that is her truth to follow. So simple yet so helpful! Everyone have a blessed day!
Helen, I do that too. I have 3 pennies sitting in the window beside where I work.
Thank you so much for your Sunday messages!
A beautiful message today. Thank you. We all need to trust in God more.
God bless you 🙏
Thank you Tania for your Sunday messages. I enjoy them all so much.
I agree with Jacque–I do need ti trust more and worry less.
Thank you for the post this morning.
Thank you for your words of encouragement. Some times we forget what it means to be a child of God. We over stress and worry when we need to trust in him.
As always, a good Sunday post. Good luck on your new schedule- revamping keeps us on our toes!
Oh thank you SO much for this beautiful message, Tania! How I applaud you for sharing your strong faith w all of us who learned to love you for your “dressed to kill” fashion sense & your heart-warming stories of your family! What an amazing way to share Jesus w the world!! Thank you for being you, Tania!
Thank you for the inspiration, great reminder to be grateful for what I have.
oh yes thank you. I needed this today. I need to remember to be grateful for what I have and quit griping about what doesn’t make me happy. even if I don’t say these things out loud inside my head I’m complaining ha it’s a good way to get a headache!
Thank you for these words this morning. It’s exactly what I needed to hear and a great reminder that God is the great provider. We just have to trust Him.
Lovely words by a lovely woman. Blessings to you and yours.
Amen! Thanks so much and have a blessed day!
Your post is especially a blessing today. My Mama went to heaven to be in the presence of Jesus this past week. I’m thrilled for her! She was 88 and spent her life training us up in the ways of scripture.
Today there’s a different hurt inside me though. Those precious scriptures you shared Tania met me in a special place this morning. Bless you!
I’m sorry about your mother. It is wonderful that she loved Jesus, but I know you will now have a void in your life.
Thank you this is so true.
Thank you for your encouraging Sunday posts. I really enjoy them. It’s a great way to start out my week.
I needed this post today! Have a great day! I need to read it everyday.

My husband always say “our father owns the cattle on a thousand hills” Psalm 50:10
and just like all you wrote it is nothing but Truth !
Amen! Thank you for all you do!
Good Morning Tania-you are such a blessing to others. Thank you for being such a sweet “light” in this world and for honoring Jesus. The King of Kings and Lord of all!
This was a beautiful devotional today!
Keep shining your light and doing your great work-I love your content and your personality! You are so fun!
Have a blessed day!
This is just what I needed to read this morning . I felt a void in my life recently. My physical disability has been getting the very best of me . I’m not the active person I use to be and this adjustment in the last 2 years has been long and frustrating and tiring . I will begin to try looking at it differently with gods help. Thank you for sharing .
Great devotion today!
This reminds me of the hymn “Only Trust Him.” Beautiful post. Thanks
Excellent blog today! Thank you for sharing.
Thank you! I really needed this!
Thank you for your post today Tania. I feel like God was speaking to me through your words ! Have a great week!
Amen!! I look forward to your Sunday posts. God is faithful and we can trust Him to meet our needs.
Thank you, Tania, for your post today!! It is hard for me to ever feel like I am enough or have done enough. But, I know Christ is our Source! I just need to be a better listener.
One of my favorites is Matthew 6:26 and a a reminder, I have a decorative in every room in my home, either in plain view or hidden. As the song says, “…How I’ve proved Him o’er and o’er, ’tis so sweet to trust in Jesus…”
Tania. Your Sunday teachings are always my reminder of who hides and empowers us. You are such a steward of God. Modeling for us beauty worth and resilience comes from belief
I have been struggling with my faith lately, so I needed to read this post this morning. Thank you!
thank you, nice reading something so insightful.
