I Am Enough


How many times have we felt we didn’t measure up to someone’s expectations?

We all have probably felt that way at some point in our lives…
What does enough really mean? To be sufficient, adequate, or satisfactory level or quantity.

What does God say? YOU ARE good, righteous, and enough, because you are covered in the blood of Jesus. You are enough because God has arranged a salvation plan to make you enough.

Isaiah 49:16: See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me.

Don’t let the enemy discourage you or get in your head. Read the Word, the enemy doesn’t like it when you are following Jesus. It defeats him.

I read something recently and it really stuck with me…

I am a woman on a mission.

I am a woman of strength.

I’ve been through some seasons that bruised my dreams, and tore me up inside.

I’ve tasted the bitter winds of betrayal and disappointment.

I’ve been in the fire and I’ve been through the storm.

I haven’t always understood the ways of God, but yet I continue to trust Him.

I have felt the sting of hot tears rush down my face.

Anxiety has entered my personal space numerous times, and then that thing called “depression” has tried to take over my life before too.

I tried desperately to fix some things but they were outside of my control. I finally had to let go and give it to God.

What I have learned through each season (good and bad) is that prayer must be top priority. I cannot do life without it, for in prayer is where I have found my voice, my tenacious spirit, and strength.

God is within me, I will not fail!

Even when I fall, mess up, and skin my knees, He is with me.

I will continue to get back up, and I will keep fighting the good fight of faith.

I look to You Lord for direction and strength…1 Chronicles 16:11 “Look to the Lord, and His strength; seek His face always.”

I am stronger than I think I am because the Lord is my strength!

Proverbs 31:25. “Strength and dignity are her clothing and her position is strong and secure; And she smiles at the future [knowing that she and her family are prepared].”

We have to raise our head high. Will there still be people that will say things to make us feel inadequate? Maybe so, but remember you have God right beside you… NO MATTER WHAT.

I AM ENOUGH, YOU ARE ENOUGH, never forget that.

I pray that this helps you or maybe you know someone that this might be what they need today, so share it with them.

Have a blessed day.. and remember never let your cup be empty.
