Your ARE Enough
I am a mess. A broken mess. And I am okay with that. I know I am a sinner but Christ paid for all of my sin, and I know in His eyes, I am flawless. Isn't that amazing? That even though I still make so many mistakes, God loves me. It is mind blowing, amazing, and beautiful. It is so past our knowledge and understanding that once I think of one word to describe it, I think of another. No set of words can describe how amazing it is because it is INDESCRIBABLE. The truth that gets me every time I hear it is: God loves me and wants me. HE WANTS ME. Me. He wants me to be all His. He listens to me every time I pray. He loves when I bring my joy and pain. I know He gets me. I love that even when I don't know what my feelings are or can't put my thoughts into words, I know He already understands. Even better than I do. And how He loves me just the way I am, but refuses to let me stay that way (quote from Just Like Jesus by Max Lucado). I remember my mom telling me a few weeks ago that He disciplines us because He loves us. He teaches us because He loves us. He forgives us over and over because He loves us. When I am feeling down on myself I love when the Holy Spirit reminds me that I am worthy. Loved. Chosen. Beautiful. Special. Important. I am enough. I am unique. I am HIS. And that is enough. Alone I am nothing but with Christ I AM ENOUGH. Soak in that truth, friends. You are enough. But more importantly you are HIS.
