Exhausting

Y’all know wnat measuring up is?

Exhausting. It’s absolutely exhausting.

First of all whose standards are you trying to measure up to?

Yours? Unobtainable.

Hers? Unreasonable.

His? Impracticable.

The worlds? Impossible.

I fall short.

And I’m not being mean – because you know that’s not who I am – but you fall short, too.

[We] will never be:

Smart enough

Savvy enough

Pretty enough

Strong enough

Skinny enough

Rich enough

Talented enough

Good enough.

And the list goes on and on and on.

And on.

But.

Thank goodness we don’t have to gauge ourselves against anyone’s standards but God’s. Open His word and let Him speak to you. Let His words be the only truth that resonates in your soul from here on out.

▪️Psalm 139:14 tells me that I am wonderfully made.

▪️Proverbs 31:10 says that I am more precious than rubies.

▪️1 John 3:1 says that I am His child.

▪️John 3:16 tells me that my God loves me so much that He sent His son to die for me.

Somebody testify.

The truth of the matter is that when it comes to God’s measuring stick you will always be top-notch. And that, my sweet sisters in Christ, is all the measuring you’ll ever need.
