Enough is Enough

Have you ever felt like you weren't good enough? Like you were as worthless as the piece of plastic on a shoelace? I know I have. For a matter of fact, I know that most of us, if not all of us, have. It's not the best feeling in the world. As humans, it's natural for us to feel this way.

There have been many occasions where I have felt all of these things, but we have to look at the bigger picture. The bigger picture is this: even if we feel worthless or unloved, we really aren't. Think about this: God sent His only Son to die for us for our sins. He has loved us and forgiven us; even in our darkest hourshow crazy is that? To know that our Heavenly Father unconditionally loves us no matter what, just blows my mind.

Psalm 138:8 says, "The LORD will work out his plans for my life--for your faithful love, O LORD, endures forever. Don't abandon me, for you made me."

No matter what we face, or how abandoned we feel, God has a plan through it all. It is to test our faith in Him. If God gave us EVERYTHING that we could ever want, there wouldn't be a point in having a God - hear me out. We have to remain faithful to Him, even when we feel like He has turned His back on us, or when we feel like we are less loved. He has planned everything out and made everything in a purposeful manner, so that we can grow stronger in our faith.

For we are God’s masterpiece. He has created us anew in Christ Jesus, so we can do the good things he planned for us long ago.

Thank you for making me so wonderfully complex! Your workmanship is marvelous how well I know it.
— Psalm 139:14 NLT

You are God's wonderfully made masterpiece! There is no mistake in YOU. You are enough for God, for others, and for this world. THAT is ENOUGH. You are LOVED!
