Will I Ever Be Enough?

Standard

Enough, will I ever be enough? Pretty enough? Strong enough? Smart enough? Popular enough? Enough for someone to date? Enough for someone to want to marry? Enough to be a wife? Enough to be a mother? By now you probably hate the word Enough. These questions bounce around my brain like ping pong balls.  The seemingly condemning ,yet encouraging thought rings in my mind that I can never be enough to please God without Jesus.

So, no, I can never be enough for Him. My own righteousness is like filthy rags (Isaiah 64:6). Yet, in Christ I am enough. I am covered in His Righteousness and that’s more than enough (I Corinthians 1:30). Jesus gives me all I need for life and godliness  (2 Peter 1:3). He will provide all I need at all times so can “abound in every good work” (2 Corinthians 9:8). He withholds “no good thing from those whose walk is blameless” (Psalm 84:11). So, Lord if I’m enough in you and You withhold no good thing from me, if I’m following you, why am I alone? My conclusion is I don’t know. Maybe I’m not blameless enough? Maybe whomever you have for me isn’t a “good thing” for me right now? Maybe I don’t depend on You enough?

But right now, I’m going to hold on that in You I’m enough, that You have give me all I need so I can follow You, and that You aren’t withholding good from me. You are Father. You are Faithful. You are Sovereign. That’s Enough more than Enough.
