He Makes Me Enough

The other day someone asked me if I still did "that little blog thing?" and if that's all I planned to do with my life.

I had two reactions to that, first, it showed me that they obviously weren't following the blog and second, I yet again didn't measure up. I wasn't good enough. As much as I want to shrug off their words, put on a pair of cute heels and some jazz and carry on, the truth is I want them to be proud of me. To celebrate our accomplishments. To have the scale tip, and let me be good enough in their eyes.

The truth is I'll never be what THEY THINK I should be because that's not where HE wants me. I don't have to change because I am loved just the way I am. I don't have to find approval with them because I've already found it with the King of Kings.


How quickly we forget this. We get caught up trying to achieve their approval, instead of following Him. We fixate on tipping their scale in our favor, piling on "achievements" but always falling short. 


Chances are their scale will never tip in our favor, we probably won't ever measure up to their standard. The truth is, we aren't enough but God sweeps in and fills the places that are lacking, and then He tips us over to fill others empty places. With Him, we are enough. We are complete. We don't have to compete to gain approval because He has already given it. We measure up. We're good enough.

We are what He has called us to be. We are where He has placed us. I don't know about you, but I don't want to be anywhere else.

  2. Oh So Very True our value is not in what we become in the world but who we are in Christ. I chose a very different path in life and have been looked down upon and shamed for that .. I am single and in my 40's and share a home with my parents. We love one another, respect each other, are best friends and love being together. Married life and children just didn't happen for me. On top of that I chose a profession that's different I create handmade items and sell vintage and antiques. And live on that income. Am I happy Very. And it is what God called me to do with my life I can see that now. The story is deeper the picture bigger when you fill in all the details .. but what's important is that I know that I am valuable in God's eyes .. I am the daughter of a King .. and when my life comes to an end the only words I am most concerned about are those of my Dear Sweet Christ Jesus. The rest of those that didn't know what to do with me because I live outside their box of normal .. that's o.k. as I have grown older I'm no longer concerned with their approval.. as the Bible say's Gods People are a Peculiar People .. and well I just chose to be a little more peculiar than the next gal in this world of ours .. LOL ! Sweet Blessings ..Sara

  3. I've spent my whole life trying to live up to what others expected me to be. Thank you for reminding me that I am who and what He helped me to be.
