What Inspires me Wednesday: More than enough
This time last year I was in crunch mode trying to finish working on a book with a message that God had been putting on my heart to share with the women of today. Mothers, wives, and women who just didn't feel like they were measuring up to the worth that that they desired. It was such an amazing experience and I have to tell you it changed me a lot.
I am learning this new balance of understanding that I am worthy of living a great life, and humble enough to appreciate it. I am learning that God is sovereign and He has planned my life for me, but in everything I have free will to choose which path I take. His or mine.I also understand that sometimes He waits for US to make known our own desires, and how in fact do they line up with His will?! I am sensitive enough to understand people in a deep manner, even if they choose to remain distant and secretive. I often can read someone's motive before they can, yet I sometimes struggle with my own. I love to be with people, but I also love to be alone. I can be loud and in the next breath be seeking for silence. This is me. This is who I am.
With all that said, I want to tell you right now that YOU are enough! Right now, just as you are YOU are ENOUGH! But please do not feel like that being enough is anything outside of you. Also, do not feel like being enough right this minute is enough to last you the rest of your days. While you are enough right now you will not be enough a week from now, a month from now, and especially a year from now. We were not created to remain the same or every single one of us would still be infants.
You need to realize that you are more than enough to remain the same as you are today. Every single dream you have, you have the ability and determination deep inside of you to achieve those dreams. NEVER ever under estimate the power that is inside of you, the abilities that you were created with when you were born. The desires, ideas, and thoughts you have are trying to get you to the next level. Yes, you will have some of those desires,ideas, and thoughts that will steer you the wrong way if you allow them to arise and take root. There is this feeling deep inside that gets us to know right from wrong. The feeling that stirs when you know your doing something that might not be a good idea just as well as that excitement leap of joy when you begin to do something you have always wanted to do. You have got to know that you are enough and you need to learn to trust those feelings, and the decisions you make. We get so fearful of making a mistake so we just do not do anything. FEAR will be one of your biggest dream and goal killers. Fear might move you to make choices, decisions that look promising but it will not sustain you! You have got to let go of fear of failure and take each step as a promise to the future ahead and the next step on the path that will lead you to living life completely and fully.
We need to rise up and realize that we are enough and nothing outside of us can make us any different. It all has to come from the inside out. How we feel about ourselves is huge and a big determination of the choices we will make. We need to understand that our daughters MUST be equipped with knowing they are more than enough or some boy (or even friends/acquaintances/school friends) will tell them differently. Let's stop leaving holes within ourselves and each other that need to be filled and begin to build one another up and remind each other just how much we really are worth this to world, to this moment of now.
