Are you good enough?
This is a question we have all asked ourselves, it is a question that brings up many different emotions and often reveals areas in our lives that we are struggling with. Its a natural human tendency to always want to be better and grow yourself, but i think for a lot of us it goes further and perhaps deeper than that. We generally don’t believe we are good enough.
The reason behind this is often caused by our predisposition to always compare ourselves with others, we are always looking at the people around us thinking “what can I do to be more like them”, instead of accepting who we are. With media being so popular these days we are constantly faced with unrealistic ideas of who we should be or what we should be able to achieve. We are no longer satisfied with just being ourselves and if that isn’t the case then peer pressure has caused us to be embarrassed of who we really are.
But it doesn’t have to be like that.
Jesus has made you an original, so unique that there is no one else like you in the world.
You are wonderfully and fearfully made by the God of the universe, so to answer your question, yes, you are good enough. There is no one that can be better at being you, than you. So don’t allow anyone or anything to make you feel differently, you are 100% perfect the way you are.
No matter where you go or who you surround yourself with, know that Jesus loves you the way you are and that there is no one he would rather you be than yourself.
Live life with passion and joy knowing that who you are is more than good enough, so good that Jesus chose to die for you.
