Why do we compare ourselves to other women? Why are we never satisfied with ourselves just the way we are? Why do we beat ourselves up internally? Why do we believe the lies about who we are? Why do we want to be different than the way God made us? Why do we forget God is FOR us, not AGAINST us?
The world tells us we are failing so we work harder, but all the striving to be better only distracts you from what God wants you to know about yourself. He loves you. Just the way you are. There is not one thing you could do to cause God to love you more than He already does. You are enough. Enough because He is in you. Living, breathing, working, planting His desires within you, using you to bless and encourage, and being your Salvation. You are enough because the King of Kings resides in you.
He knows what you need and when you are ready to surrender to His help in any area He desires to change in you. He doesn't ask us to "be" or "do" better just for the sake of it. He never uses condemnation, guilt or shame to motivate us. He always has a Kingdom purpose in mind...He is always wanting to draw us closer to Him so we become more like Him.
The next time you are tempted to dwell on the lie that you just aren't enough, please remember the truth.....you are a daughter of Christ Jesus, who died for you and lives again inside your heart and has great plans for you. This earth and everything in it will pass away and what will be left is you and your God....live for that moment....live in a way that readies you for the face to face encounter with the One who has loved you from your very conception.
Tracie and I love you today and would love to pray for you. If you are struggling and need some prayer support...please leave us a comment or connect with us through our website. God is bigger than anything you are facing and we want to stand with you in prayer.
