Enough.

December 6 –  8:00 a.m. I arrive at the office, sit down at my desk and flip my inspirational desk calendar over to the next day and these words stared at me:

“You are loved as you are by a God who does not change. Nothing you do will make Him love you more. Nothing you don’t do will make Him love you less.”

Lately, I’ve been struggling and wondering if I’m doing enough? Am I as good as I should be at my job? Am I fulfilling God’s plan for my life? Am I truly living up to all that I could be?

It seems as though our world is centered on ENOUGH.

It’s like somewhere along the road this idea gets placed in our heads that suddenly everything will become crystal clear. Suddenly we will finally get it “figured out” and will be certain we are doing enough.

Well, I don’t have it figured out. And I rarely feel like I’m doing enough.

Some days I wake up with purpose, like I’m where I’m supposed to be. Then there are the days (most days) I wake up dazed, confused and overwhelmed at the thought of my hopes and dreams and wonder if I’ll ever get there because there is no way I could ever do enough.

Do we ever figure it out? Is it ever enough?

That’s where the truth in those words hit me like a rock. It is likely that I will never have it figured out. And I can keep going and going and going, but it will never feel like enough.

But here’s the truth… that’s okay! We don’t have to figure it out because He already has. And we don’t’ have to keep going and going because He is already enough.

My Lord never changes. In the midst of the confusion, the successes, and the failures – He loves me just the same.

So, my friends – rest in these words today. And know that YOU ARE ENOUGH.

“You are loved as you are by a God who does not change. Nothing you do will make Him love you more. Nothing you don’t do will make Him love you less.”
