Finding Enough in God
An Interview with Brandon Heath
In his interview with Family Life Radio, contemporary Christian artist Brandon Heath shared the foundation of his latest album, Enough Already, speaks directly to the heart of the human condition. The lyrics explore his feelings of inadequacy, only to find that through God, he has been deemed “enough” all along.
“I have kind of a thing of not feeling enough in my life,” Brandon said. “And so, I wanted to write songs around how God qualifies us as being enough.”
2 Corinthians 12:9 says, “And He said to me, ‘My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness’” (NKJV). Just as Paul did in this verse, Brandon has learned to let go of his feelings of inadequacy, trusting that God’s grace is more than enough to make up for his perceived shortcomings.
“I feel like God is saying, you’re enough already,” he continued. “With you wanting to be enough by looking elsewhere for somebody to qualify you … so, that’s where that the idea came from.”
By admitting our feelings of insufficiency and releasing them into God’s hands, we can all experience the humility that opens the door to God’s grace.
Brandon acknowledges his past without being bound by it, saying, “I am not the the sum of my mistakes. And so, I don’t necessarily believe that the past defines us. But it certainly is a part of our stories – and it’s a part of my story.”
Philippians 3:13 says, “Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead” (NKJV). Paul encourages us to focus on the future while learning from the past.
Brandon said, “I don’t want to deny mistakes that I’ve made in the past because it’s really important to learn from them. But also, it’s really just a part of who I am. It’s a part of what has gotten me here.”
This conversation with Brandon offers an inspiring blueprint for navigating life’s trials and triumphs. Through vulnerability and authenticity, we each can become a living testament to the transformative power of God’s grace and love. May Brandon’s words encourage you to embrace your own ‘enough already’ in Christ.
If you choose not to be anxious about anything, you can live a supernatural life.
