Wow this year has definitely been 20/20 ! We have been forced to truly see things and not just walk around oblivious. The unfortunate has been in our view. Everywhere we turn we are faced with something that has just shaken us to our core. The impact of what we have been witnessing probably has been sugarcoated with “this if life” statements. However in those nights when sleep has been hard to find, all that rushes to our minds is…how can I help ? What can I do? I’m seeing but am I really? What I’m I missing? I’m I giving my best to everything God is expecting from me in this season? Our nights have been hitting us like a flood, where we are just trying to stay above water. A flood where currents are pulling every way possible, while our spirit stays focused on above !
Let’s talk about that hovering feeling. That feeling of “I’m giving my best and it’s still not enough”. The one that steals our thoughts and chains it to ideas that are a burden. Those difficult questions that hit an area in us. Why do I feel so inadequate? Why I’m not moving forward? Why does nothing feel like enough?
I know this season I’m not the only one battling theses horrible thoughts. However let me bring some light to these dark moments!
You are enough! You will always be enough! Jesus Christ didn’t die for someone who isn’t worthy or enough ! He died for someone who is WORTHY AND ENOUGH! We didn’t deserve it nor can comprehend it but it’s a done deal! Our Lord and Savior died for us because he saw something we couldn’t within ourselves. Feelings of inadequacy? Rebuke those and tell yourself what the Lord told us ! “But you are a chosen generation, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, His own special people, that you may proclaim the praises of Him who called you out of darkness into His marvelous light; ~ 1 Peter 2:9”. You were chosen !!! So it doesn’t matter what the enemy is showing you because you were chosen. Since you were chosen, that means the Lord’s favor and grace is upon your life ! He will equip you in every area, in his own way.
Just a reminder: Just because we have God doesn’t mean we won’t go through things in this world. Take heart because the Lord has also overcome this world, so we could too! Bad days are the worse but their not the end of anything! If anything their the beginning of something new! A new perspective, a new start to healing an area, a new opportunity to reach for help, a new opportunity to run closer to God, a new opportunity to surrender, and a new opportunity to give up control and hand it over to the Lord!
Peace my brothers and sisters !
Take one day at a time !
