I am enough.

And so are you.

Our worth was determined on the CROSS when Jesus sacrificed His life for us and died to set the final price value over our heads.

So why is it so difficult to remember this when the world tells us that we are replaceable, unworthy, forgettable, and alone?

Because the world (and Satan) work counter to God’s truth, and they have been programming our brains to believe lies that will never be true (and will never provide comfort or peace).

Psalm 63 speaks about the soul being satisfied as with fat and rich foods. Do you know how you feel after a heavy meal? overwhelmingly stuffed, as if you cannot fit anything else inside of your body. That feeling can be duplicated in the spiritual sense if we are stuffed to the brim with God’s love for us. I want that feeling of satisfaction, and man cannot give it to me. I find (as an extrovert) I focus a lot of my thoughts on how I can spend more time with people, because that helps to fill my natural desire for human interaction. However, I sometimes catch myself having a fear of alone time that is not necessarily related to extroversion, but more closely related to my fear of being unloveable or unworthy of affection.

The cure for these fears and lies is truly spending time with My Maker, and allowing him to saturate my being with His undeniable truth. I am enough, and nothing and no one can change that.

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.
