In this reflection for the 19th Sunday in Ordinary Time, Colin MacIver shows that the scriptures remind us that when we’ve had enough, Jesus is enough, and that we can turn to him to supply us with what we need to make it through the day.
Jesus provides us all that we need for the journey. If we trust in Him, and rely on the strength he provides and offers us in the Eucharist, we’ll have enough to get through whatever challenge may come our way. If you’ve had enough, and whatever struggles you’re facing seem overwhelming, remember that he is with you and he offers Himself, which is enough for you.
