Even if we don’t consciously realize it, we can get caught in the trap of not feeling ENOUGH.
Oh the list can go on of poison darts of thoughts that the devil aim at our vulnerable souls.
Being completely open here, I struggle with feeling ENOUGH on a daily basis.
My type A, perfectionist personality comes as an disadvantage to me at times.
Plot twist: Those thoughts AREN’T TRUE.
God looks at you with Love, He sees a beautifully perfect creation of His very own hands.
I want you each to feel at peace with yourself. At peace with the beautiful (or handsome!) human being God has crafted you into. You are a masterpiece, darnit!
I want you to freely love yourself. Your quirks and all. I wish I could give a big hug to each of you, but instead I will leave you with scripture that warms my heart & reminds me in times of doubt that God made me & I am enough.
You made all the delicate, inner parts of my body and knit me together in my mother’s womb. Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous—how well I know it. You watched me as I was being formed in utter seclusion, as I was woven together in the dark of the womb. You saw me before I was born. Every day of my life was recorded in your book. Every moment was laid out before a single day had passed. (Psalms 139:13-16 NLT)
But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me. (2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV)
“What is the price of five sparrows—two copper coins? Yet God does not forget a single one of them. And the very hairs on your head are all numbered. So don’t be afraid; you are more valuable to God than a whole flock of sparrows. (Luke 12:6-7 NLT)
Then Jesus said, “Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you. Let me teach you, because I am humble and gentle at heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy to bear, and the burden I give you is light.” (Matthew 11:28-30 NLT)
See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me. (Isaiah 49:16 NIV)
For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago. (Ephesians 2:10 NLT)
