Enough

I know I am not alone. As a woman who has multiple sizes of clothing in her closet due to the fact that my body doesn’t go much more than a year without getting pregnant and the effects that it takes on it. Lets just say my body is not the same as when I got married. Even then, I didn’t feel like I was perfect enough, all I saw were the flaws. It’s easy to have doubts about being enough. Why is it so hard for us to believe that we are enough? Why does it feel more comfortable to hide? Why is it hard to believe the words “I love you”, “you are beautiful”, and “you are perfect.” For some of us we hide behind our work and others of us in the sweatpants and t-shirt. It is easy to curl up into a ball and not allow the outside world in, to ignore what is going on or run away. I think of how Jesus hung on the cross, bruised and broken before us. Naked and unashamed being vulnerable and humble before everyone. His eyes were focused, His heart full of love, and mind centered the Father. How often do I look God in the eyes? I mean really study His word and how He sees me. That is when we discover the truth of who we are. Because really, we’re our own worst enemy. We are the ones who entertain the idea of not enough. When we do not know who we are in Christ, and believe the lies it can slowly ruin our life. God begs us to come to him, to be honest and vulnerable before Him. We are enough. God trusts us with His creation; do we trust Him? He first loved us and never stops loving us, do we truly love Him? I constantly have to remind myself of what true love is. The meaning of true love can be easily forgotten in this self-centered world.
