When Your Best Isn't Enough... For the World.
What do you do when your best isn't enough? When you give everything you have... When you lose sleep over something... When you spend countless hours stressing and crying... When you are completely drained and you have absolutely nothing left... and it still isn't enough...
When you desperately hang on to the few things that are going right, and suddenly even those things are out of control and you crash, you fail... and the tears don't stop coming.
Who are you not enough for who? For yourself and for the world?
Your best will never be enough for yourself and for the world... The world tells you to be perfect, but all people are imperfect. People are flawed and make mistakes, it is part of our humanness.
How often do you give yourself room to make mistakes? You tell yourself it is okay to make a mistake, but secretly inside you know you would never show yourself mercy. When you make a mistake you ruthlessly beat yourself up.
No matter what is happening in your life right now, look at yourself in the mirror and say these words:
My best is more than enough for God.
It is hard, but do your best to believe it.
God is loving and merciful and when you beat yourself up over a mistake, it not only hurts you, but Him too.
Be kind and show yourself compassion. Remember that no matter what is happening, God loves you and He has a plan.
Sometimes it is in the breaking that our Fathers love is revealed.
In Christ's Love,
2 Corinthians 12:10
