Tim Livingston Announces "More Than Enough" Essay Contest

Tim Livingston Announces “More Than Enough” Essay Contest

Tim Livingston is pleased to announce an Essay/Testimonial Contest in conjunction with his latest radio single, “More Than Enough,” which debuted in the Singing News July chart at #39.

Runners-up will receive a digital download of his latest album, “I Just Miss You,” which includes “More Than Enough.” Twenty Five (25) runner-up prizes will be given away.

“More Than Enough,” tells the testimony of a woman in the Bible from 2 Kings, chapter 4. The miracle of the borrowed vessels that were filled with oil as the Prophet Elisha had promised that God would provide. That miracle moment allowed this widow of a preacher to keep her home and bless her sons.

The chorus says, “God is more than enough, greater than I deserve, there is no
way to measure His worth.” Tim states, “I’m sure this message has a personal
connection with Christians that know the only way they have made it through
some specific trials was because of that same GOD that isn’t just
enough-but More Than Enough! I’d love to hear the testimonies!”

Here is how the “More Than Enough” essay/testimony contest works:

In 250 words or less, submit a personal testimony of how God came through
for you-right on time. It could be a healing, salvation, financial, family
or whatever you wish to share. Entries/testimonies should be emailed to:

contest. The grand prize winner will be announced on Friday, July 31, 2015.
