When you hear the term “enough” what comes to mind? Do you think of having enough money to make ends meet? Do you think about having enough education to land that perfect job? Attractive enough to land that perfect guy or girl? Normally that’s the types of things I would have thought of, but lately I have been taking that word “enough” a little deeper.
I have been meditating on the fact that I am enough. I am enough even if I don’t have the perfect job, or a degree on my wall. I am enough even if I’m single and haven’t met my spouse yet. I am enough even when there’s more month than money and I am still enough if I need to gain or lose a few pounds.
I am the first to tell you that in the past I have had insecurities that have left me feeling like I’m not enough. Like something was desperately missing from my life, from my appearance, from my relationships. I often felt like, if I would just do everything I could to be perfect, acceptance would come from those in whom I was seeking it. What I have found out is that often times there’s rarely anything we can do to be enough for some people.
I should know, I have tried to be all things to all people, I have given up time with my family trying to be “enough”, exhausting myself on the way down the path of hurt and disappointment.
I have decided that I Am Enough. I discovered this truth as I immersed myself in the Word of God. When I was able to connect with other believers who had similar stories and we were able to pray and encourage one another.
God’s Word is bursting at the seams with affirmations that He thinks we are enough. I invite you to discover that God purposefully orchestrated you just the way He wanted you to be. When we know we’re enough for the one who made us, not much else matters.
