“Every fear we have is based in not being enough or not having enough.”
This one line changed my life! God had already shown me that I have a fear of not having enough that stems from childhood worries. He had been working on me and teaching me how to give to others as He commands without fear about what I will have left.
But this statement helped me realize that I have another type of fear that keeps me from walking into all that God is calling me to be; fear of not being enough. Fear that I will fall flat on my face.
In the moments when I have thrown caution to the wind and tried something that I wasn’t really sure I could do, I have soared on heights that I never imagined.
However, there have been moments when I failed. Those moments taught me that I am not enough. And I believe that. I am not enough to do what God is calling me to do.
I can’t build his kingdom. I can’t end the poverty cycle for single mothers and their children. I can’t raise children who love God while dealing with my own dysfunctional upbringing. I can’t have a healthy marriage because I didn’t see one growing up. I can’t write this blog consistently with everything else I have going on. I can’t live a life that is pleasing in God’s sight. I am not enough…
but He is!
“Christ is in me. I am enough.”
