I Am Enough
I am enough…that’s what I keep saying to myself over and over. I notice how feelings of inadequacy show up subtly in my life. Noticing my behaviors and thoughts that are rooted in my need to perform or prove my worth. Feeling like I’m not good enough for this and not good enough for that. This belief is rooted in lies so I have to continue to uproot the negative weeds and plant seeds of truth. Contrary to the beliefs of being blemished, flawed, inferior, invalid, useless, insignificant and worthless, I am enough and there’s so much evidence in the Bible to prove it.
Psalm 139:14 says I’m not blemished because I am fearfully and wonderfully made.
2 Corinthians 12:9-10 says my flaws don’t detract from me being whole and effective because God’s strength is made perfect in my weakness. When I am weak, He is strong.
Psalm 8:5-6 says I am not inferior because God made me only a little lower than the Angels and crowned me with glory and honor. He gave me charge of everything He made, putting all things under their authority.
1 Peter 2:9 says I’m not invalid because I am a part of God’s chosen people. I am royalty and His very own possession.
Jeremiah 1:5 says that I am not useless because God purposely formed me in my mother’s womb, set me apart, and appointed me as His prophet to the nations.
Romans 5:8 says I am not insignificant because God showed His great love for me by sending Christ to die for me while I was still a sinner.
Isaiah 43:4 says I am not worthless because others were given in exchange for me. God traded their lives for mine because I am precious to Him. I am honored and He loves me.
I share this to encourage you to walk in truth. You are not who you believe yourself to be. You are enough so let go of all that you think you aren’t.
