Why Can't "Good" Be Good?

This devotion is based on an awesome Christian author and speaker, Beth Moore of Living Proof Ministries. This past weekend, I had the experience of participating in a simulcast at our church based on marriage. It was a conference broadcast across the United States and into Canada. I think they had around 500 churches participating. It was a really neat experience.

One of the most impactful speakers was Beth Moore. She spoke directly to the ladies on why "good" can't be good enough for women. This totally hit home because I've caught myself on many occasions asking myself or saying aloud, "why can't my husband do this, or why can't my husband be more like that..." WHOA! Stop for a minute, gals....why can't "GOOD" be GOOD ENOUGH??

As women, we all have probably been guilty of not being satisfied with what we have. We need to remind ourselves that what we have is good. My man is good....he's good enough. He's good enough for God, so he's definitely good enough for me.

Here are some "good" verses to ponder today:

"Give thanks to the Lord, for he is good; his love endures forever." Psalm 107:1

"Be cheerful no matter what; pray all the time; thank God no matter what happens. This is the way God wants you who belong to Christ Jesus to live." I Thessalonians 5:18 (the Message)
