Is it possible to ever BE enough?

Enough.
It seems to be one of those overused words in the English language.
We hear it ALL the time.
enough definition Confession.
I say it all the time. I think about it all the time. I worry, yes, I worry about it.

Enough.

  • Do we have enough money in the bank? Is there enough food to eat? Will I have enough gas to get to across town? Is there enough milk for cereal?
  • Did I sell enough? {gulp}
  • Was I enough of an attentive mom? {double gulp}
  • Will I ever...ever...be enough? {choking}
Enough seems to run through my head constantly. Like some stupid measuring stick. Except, really, who am I measuring myself against? Am I playing a comparison game? Because if so, I fail EVERY single time.
There will never be enough money, or food or gas or milk. We will always run short. Unless I get a cow, but since I live in the city, and they frown on the whole idea of "bessie" roaming through neighborhoods, I highly doubt that will happen. I digress.
The big question, the one I can only answer for myself is "am I enough"? And really, by the worlds standards...better yet, by my own skewed measuring stick...I will never be.
How depressing. How futile. How worthless.
But that is not the end.
I have hope. For me personally? I believe someone else thinks I'm enough. Why? Because he is enough.
I don't know what you believe in. I don't know what your "religious faith" life is. But I know...for me...knowing that I have a God that loves me, who IS enough, helps me to face my inadequacies. It does not give me an excuse to be a slacker. What it gives me is someone to lean on when my "enough" tank is thoroughly empty. And being very visual, I needed a tactile reminder I could see. I wear this everyday.

Maybe you need just need to be reminded that you are enough. You are so uniquely you. Perfectly fabricated...to be who you are...where you are.
Take a deep breath.
Remember.
You.Are.Enough.
