enough already

lately i've found myself fighting against the sometimes subtle, but always debilitating lie that i am not enough. you know, not whatever enough...smart enough. pretty enough. good enough. skinny enough. nice enough. Godly enough. cool enough.

and wow...allowing yourself to even entertain those kinds of thoughts will mess you up completely. make you question everything. make you doubt everyone (especially yourself). bring out emotions that never would have surfaced otherwise. put you on the defensive. generally just turn you into an emotional, hypersensitive mess...and place your focus completely on yourself and your own shortcomings. which, obviously, means your focus is not on Christ. or His incredible love and concern for you. or His unspeakable grace. or His desire to use you for His purposes.

God, never let me believe those lies again for even a second. May my confidence and worth come only from you. you are the only one that matters.

"from heaven the Lord looks down and sees all mankind; from His dwelling place He watches all who live on earth--He who forms the hearts of all, who considers everything they do."
Psalm 33:13-15
