The only YOU I need

It’s so very easy to fall victim to negative thinking and self doubt. I am certain that a lot (if not most) average people would admit to thinking negatively or doubting themselves on a somewhat regular basis. The enemy of our minds has a way of convincing us that we aren’t worth much and that we are easily replaceable. I would venture to guess that if you were able to tap into your truth value (in Christ) and realize how worthy you really are, the enemy would be irate! So, instead, we often listen to that small nagging voice that constantly says, “You’re not good enough.”

Today, in my quiet time with God, I focused on my self image. I wanted to know why I had some of the same negative feelings, and I wanted to see what the root of it all was. I know my feelings are real, but they are not reality, so it’s important for me to examine them from time to time and make sure my thoughts are lining up with God. My mind was completely blown away today at what God spoke to me as I conversed with My Creator. God made me realize that I am SO valuable, He only needed to make one of me. I am enough me, all the me He will need for ALL of eternity. There can be NO other me, and there never needs to be because I am enough! Isn’t that powerful? To think that God created YOU with specific qualities that NO ONE else has or will ever have, because YOU ARE ENOUGH for God. You are one of a kind and who you are is pleasing to your creator.

I am encouraged and elated to meditate on this thought. I am enough me for all of eternity. God only made one of me because I am worthy and valuable enough to please Him. I am the only ME God needs….

I am a 32 year old teacher in Georgia, originally from Ohio (Go Buckeyes!). I am also a singer and I recently taught myself how to play guitar. For fun, I enjoy reading and lots of Netflix binges, which is my American right! I have also been known to cycle, run half marathons, and do just about whatever I set my mind to. A charming shepherd-mix dog named Kingsley lives with me and keeps me laughing at his antics at every turn. I am learning how to love the life I live with each passing day. Sometimes it's easy...other times, I write about it.
