What if you understood that right now, where you are with whatever particular sin you are struggling with, whatever ugliness you know lurks in the dark corners of you heart, whatever you have achieved or not, are doing or aren't doing, believe or don't believe - that you are enough? Right now. Not something in the future, something to attain or strive for, but that if you never added one more thing to your resume, never leaped over any more tall sins in a single bound, never wrote a book, rode the bull, lost the weight, ate all organic, made your million, nothing else. The current you, at this moment in your life with no more growth or achievements are loved with an everlasting love, and underneath are the everlasting arms. (Jer. 31:3 & Deut. 33:27) We say it, and confess it to be true because after all it's in the Bible, but we don't believe it.
My post yesterday was about fear, and I was struck with the vast number of responses that could be summed up to say the collective biggest fear is that I won't be enough. I won't do enough. As a woman, I can so relate. I have thought and felt every one of the same things. Just wanted to take time today to remind you that you are enough. He knows that you are but dust (Ps. 103:14) and loves you anyway.
