Plenty 17 Oct 2018
Plenty sounds to me like having more than enough or more than needed. When I have 'plenty' of something I start wondering what I can do with the excess.
When I am honest, for me
enough is enough is a good quantity.
Thus with having plenty of something I have a problem.
It is perhaps too much for me and I may have to care for the excess.
What to do with the Plenty?
When I have plenty of time, I may feel bored and begin to look for distractions, usually somewhat disorderly.
When I have plenty of food, it spoils or I have to overeat and feel bad.
When I have plenty of water, I may experience a flood.
When I have plenty of love, I may start to spoil a few persons.
God is Love
Does God's love overflow? Perhaps few people would confirm the plenty of His love.
If God is true I would expect that His love is overflowing. So I am blind or there must be a good reason.
My best guess is that I am hindering the flow of God's love. Most probably at the output side. I am not as generous as I should be.
I also realize that if the power of His love would hit me, I would perhaps drift without control in the flood.
Would I trust God by giving up my control and opening for His plenty?
