Shut down the negative voice inside your head that tells you that you are not good enough. Shut. It. Down.
You are good enough. Period. God thought that you were good enough to die for you. Now tell me how anyone else’s opinion can matter more than that.
Most of my anxiety comes from feeling inadequate. If only I could be perfect I would have nothing to worry about. So, we try to improve ourselves to make us appear more acceptable and adequate.
Self improvement can be a good thing, but you are good enough at your starting point. God loves you at your starting point. God loves you no matter if you have it all together or if you keep messing up. That’s so encouraging to me. We can never mess up so bad that God will not love us. So, if you’re having one of those days, weeks, months, years, decades when you just can’t seem to get it together. That’s okay. We all go through times like that. Its part of life. Some people are just way better at hiding their mess than others.
You are good enough. You are pretty enough/handsome enough. You are smart enough. You are important enough. (This is starting to sound like a line from The Help.)
Don’t let insecurity rob you of your peace. You are fearfully and wonderfully made. You are a child of God and you are good enough.
