“God alone suffices.”

Salaam and Greetings of Peace:

“Let nothing trouble you,
let nothing frighten you.
All things are passing;
God never changes. Patience obtains all things.
He who possesses God lacks nothing:
God alone suffices.”

St. Teresa of Avila

  3. Why does God alone suffice? How is it that He who possesses God lacks nothing?

    The answer is that because God isn’t lacking in any attribute of love neither need we be lacking. God isn’t lacking in patience or the desire to bless obedient people with his gift of patience. As we become more patient we will also become kinder. The key thing is to trust and obey God, so that He becomes our sufficiency. We have a mighty God to praise.
