Let me tell y’all what I see a lot of.
Within myself and within others. Shame that holds us captive. Shame that locks us down and locks us up. Shame that embeds itself deep down in the core of who we think we are.
We’re not good enough.
We’re not smart enough.
We’re not funny enough.
We’re not tough enough.
We’re just not enough.
Guess what – that’s true. We are not enough. We never will be. But we have a God living inside of us that is more than enough.
We have a God living inside of us that is strong when we are so very weak. He is smart. He is kind. He is compassionate. He is tough. He is sympathetic. He is honest. He is loyal. He is selfless. He is slow to anger. He is a leader. He is a friend.
He is everything I’m not, and He is living in my heart.
Let Him be enough today.
“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 of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.” 2 Corinthians 12:9 (ESV)
