You are More than Enough
For you created my inmost being;
you knit me together in my mother’s womb.
I praise you because I am fearfully and wonderfully made;
your works are wonderful,
I know that full well.
Everyone has an inner voice that speaks to us in the midst of particular situations, during chaos, and in silence. It is always there – in the background. Sometimes the inner voice is louder, and sometimes we barely notice it.
The influence of the inner voice is highly dependent on the level of self awareness one has. Sometimes that voice within us is harsh and unkind. Sometimes that voice tells us that we are not strong enough, good enough, smart enough, focused enough…it makes us question our worth. When I experience moments like this, my inner voice prompts me to overthink, overanalyze, and hyper-focus on things that are often beyond my control. When I was a little girl I worried about EVERYTHING.
I was anxious and fearful of so many things. The weather, death, lack of money, becoming ill, and losing loved ones filled my thoughts on a regular basis. I was a little girl filled with many doubts and misunderstandings about my own thoughts and outlook on the world around me. As I grew into my teenage years, my heart opened to hearing God’s word and the promise of salvation. Although my faith calmed my worries and fears, my inner voice was still strong enough to creep up and cause doubt. I used to think that happened because I wasn’t strong enough, or saved enough, or maybe I didn’t pray enough, or read my Bible enough.
That word again…enough. It’s a tough word.
God knows we are imperfect; yet, we were perfectly formed through His eyes and hands. He knows our hearts and is aware of every doubt in our minds before we even consider it. He knows we will succumb to that inner voice of fear and doubt, and He knows how strong and convincing that voice can be. What we must remember is that we are fearfully and wonderfully made, which makes us MORE than ENOUGH.
Those tough days where the inner voice is picking a fight with me I have to remind myself that God created me, which means that I am MORE than ENOUGH. I was designed to fulfill God’s purpose for my life, and He knows there will be times when I am misaligned with His will. Thankfully, I am reminded to slow my roll, open my heart, and listen…not to that inner voice trying to infuse my mind with doubts, fears, worries, and anything else to get me off track…but to listen to HIM.
When God has control of your inner voice your heart and mind will be aligned with His purpose. Seek Him today. Thank Him for creating you perfectly, and knowing you are and will continue to be imperfect. Allow Him to infiltrate your mind, body, and soul. You were not made to live without God’s voice within you. Take time to listen today, and seek understanding that supports your efforts in becoming the person you are meant to be.
