When You’re Not Enough.

“We all face areas of life where we feel insufficient. These are the times when the little voice comes into your head and tells you you’re not good or smart enough or just not enough in general. Do yourself a favor. Don’t listen to that voice. The truth is you are not enough and neither am I but that’s okay because you are not alone. God is with you and God is enough. You can do whatever God wants you to do, because He will do it through you.”

I stole this. Because I’m not enough. The fact of the matter is, God alone is capable of originality. No matter how brilliantly I may write on my best day, those brilliant thoughts originate with the God who made me and planned each step of my life, including education, influence and even my desire.

The quote above is from a new book by Dave Weiss, “Running A.M.O.K.”Kindle Version or Print Version available from Amazon.com.

I highly recommend you buy this if you are a creative person, or if you think you aren’t but know that creative thinking will help you be a better problem solver, and a better communicator of the good that God has done in your life.

If you want a preview of the book, and a look inside Dave’s thinking, peruse his blog at amokartscom.

      You’re so welcome, and thanks for the great book. I’ve been following your blog, and have only read part way through your book, and all I can say is, wow! I’ve read many books on creativity and they make good points, but really only make one or two points in 300 pages. You’ve looked at creativity and the concept of art in general and come up with a “hmmm” moment on every other page.
