It has been far too long since I shared a “Sunday Scripture” with y’all and I am so excited to be bringing them back today- especially around this topic! These are actually some of my most time-consuming posts to put together, simply because when it comes to sharing my heart on faith topics I take it so seriously to get it “right” and convey exactly what I’m feeling. It’s important to me to share with a humble heart and all the transparency- so thank you for your grace while these posts took a little pause! 🙂
I have to give one of my besties, Emily, credit for inspiring this post! She shared this song with my last week and I couldn’t get it out of my head, because I think it covers a topic so many of us struggle with -feeling that we are not “enough.” These days there are about 1,000,000 ways in which we feel less than, like we are not measuring up, and simply that we are not enough. From seeing luxurious travel posts on IG and wondering, “Why can’t I afford that?” So seeing beaming families and wondering, “Why don’t I have that yet?” To seeing girls touting tiny sized clothing and wondering, “Why don’t I fit in that?” To seeing promotions & milestones being reached and wondering, “When is it my turn?” I mean, I think we all know the list can go on and on!!
But Psalm 149:4 and this beautiful song cut to the heart of the matter and remind me of the truth that I base my life on:
“So I’ll give thanks to God, when I don’t have enough. ‘Cause He’s more than enough & He knows what I need.”
The simple and beautiful and glorious truth is this: God is enough. And because HE is enough, as his children WE ARE ENOUGH. My life, your life, our lives may not look like anyone else’s- and he designed it that way on purpose! We can trust His plan and his creation because he loves us with an everlasting love and has a plan that is far greater than anything we can imagine. When I look at how He transformed my life in 6 short months I am reminded that I have nothing to worry about- He’s got this!
If you struggle with feeling not enough, or that you don’t have enough, I pray that you are encouraged and reminded that YOU ARE ENOUGH and God is full of plans and grace and love for you!
