Good Enough!

No not food this time.  This is about so much more.  Life has been really “crazy”.  If you don’t believe me just watch the news.  I live in the Chattanooga area and one would have to have been on a deserted island without electronics not to know what happened here.  Add that with other news and issues I have been dealing with and yes it has been really “crazy”.

My morning routine usually consists of my getting up, enjoying a cup of coffee and a daily devotion.  Spending time with God is an important part of my day.  The day goes so much better if I make sure and give God the first 30 minutes or so.  When I sneak on to Facebook before my devotion I feel a little guilty.  Well guess what I did this morning?

God speaks and often I don’t hear.  Even in my guilt this morning I was listening.  Someone had posted a photo with the following on it:

Today know that
YOU are
good enough.
Stop worrying
if you are pretty
strong enough,
rich enough
smart enough…
You must KNOW
that you are ENOUGH.
Don’t let negative
thoughts have power
over you…
Take a deep breath and
know that you matter
and you

It has been on my mind all day.  As we grow, develop, mature, we are often met with negativity.  As a young girl I got the message loud and clear that I wasn’t enough.  I wasn’t pretty enough, certainly not strong enough nor smart enough.  It takes lots to rewrite those negative thoughts.  Sometimes I am good at not listening.  After those head tapes have played over and over again and life is getting a little “crazy” I begin to believe the propaganda.   I have been listening to the head tapes.  I have been buying into the negativity and I have been struggling with those negative feelings.

I am pretty sure that I am not the only one that has those negative tapes.  I’m not the only one that struggles in this life.  For my sisters who have some of the same problems with esteem take heart.  If you are a child of God and you believe His promises know that you are ENOUGH.
