Enough.

enough“I feel so inadequate for you Lord.”
“I AM enough.”

Well, let the waterworks flow from my big brown eyes…because it is true and I needed that reminder.  2 Corinthians 12:9 tells us that He is enough and that we should rejoice in the fact that He is enough to cover us.  The grace of our Father is enough to cover our inadequacies, weaknesses, and our sin.  I recently watched the movie, “Mom’s Night Out,” and my kids laughed at me because in my usual fashion, I cried.  If you have seen the movie and are a mom or even just a woman you probably you know where I cried.  That moment where the heroine of the story realizes that the real reason why she has been weary is because she believes she isn’t enough.  She wrestles with her imperfections and believes everyone else (including God) must be wrestling with them too.  Yet, that is just the thing, too often we are harder on ourselves than anyone else is and I firmly believe we are much harder on ourselves than God is.  His love and grace are enough to cover my inadequacies as a writer, as a missionary, as a worship leader, as a mother…as a woman.  I know I need to remind myself of that and I’m willing to bet you just might need a reminder too.  He is my enough, is He yours?
