I watched a really sentimental movie this past weekend, ‘Catching Faith’. I recommend it for everyone. There are many lessons to be learned. It touches on family struggles, raising teenagers, grief, insecurity, integrity, gossip, malice, societal expectations, vulnerability, courage and strength.
Here is a synopsis of the movie:
John and Alexa Taylor appear to have the perfect life – they’re the envy of all the parents in town. Their son Beau is the high school football star and their daughter Ravyn is a straight-A student. But when Beau is caught drinking alcohol, his place on the team and his bright future are on the line. With the football season at stake and the judgmental community turning their backs on them, every member of the Taylor family is at a crossroads. Now, they must find the strength from one another, and the spiritual courage from within, to prove that faith and family is the only score that really matters

The one thing that stood out for me and I will probably remember for a long time is, at the end of the movie, the mother gave her daughter a locket with the words ‘GOD IS ENOUGH’ inside.
This mum had struggled with identity crisis, she had tried to keep up a facade and failed. She thought that the fickle things of life could satisfy her but they didn’t. Her conclusion of the matter was:
This is such a beautiful summary of life. This is what I hope to keep teaching Miss K through my life and my words, God is enough! Circumstances may change overnight but God, He remains the same. And, in Him, we are satisfied.
God is enough in all seasons.
Each season of life has it’s own challenges. Yes, some seasons are more difficult than others, but we should strive to enjoy the journey. We have all that we need for living a godly life.
2 Peter 1:3 NLT
By his divine power, God has given us everything we need for living a godly life. We have received all of this by coming to know him, the one who called us to himself by means of his marvelous glory and excellence.
I don’t know what you are going through, what life has thrown at you, but my prayer is that you will realize that God is enough for you. May He be the wind beneath your wings that strengthens you to reach higher heights. May His peace guard your heart and mind in Christ Jesus.
GOD IS ENOUGH!!
