You do not need define yourself by your status. Your income. Your weight. Your job title. Your husband. Your children. Your address. YOU ARE ALREADY ENOUGH.
You do not need to define yourself by who you know. Where you vacation. What you drive. Who your friends are. YOU ARE ALREADY ENOUGH.
You do not need to measure yourself against anyone. YOU ARE ALREADY ENOUGH.
This morning as I think about a few situations which have taken place over this week, I think about my guilt in comparing myself to others. I think about how I "measure" myself to others. I think about how I allow the opinion of others steal my joy or self worth. The truth is found in Colossians 2:10 where Jesus tells us, YOU ARE COMPLETE when you have Christ. COMPLETE.... what is to compare when you are COMPLETE IN CHRIST. You have it all, abundantly fully and glorious more than anything you could measure yourself against. You are COMPLETE. Meaning, ENOUGH, meaning He made you wonderfully and beautifully and you are HIS and what the world thinks, says or does in regard to you, is nothing. NOTHING. YOU are ENOUGH!
This morning I am preparing for a "road trip" down the Columbia George to visit my dear friend & catch up with other wonderful friends - I'm SO looking forward to it - but first, I'm going to be dating Jesus. The wonders of the Northwest surrounding me as I travel down 84, Klove on really loud or maybe no sound at all. Just myself and Jesus going on a road trip! I'm looking forward to this time with Him, I'm needing it. I'm needing to soak in His presence right now ~ I am needing Him to speak to me and to guide me and to remind me YOU ARE ENOUGH.
Blessings over you today as you go through your day and may you walk past a mirror see yourself and find yourself reminded as well YOU ARE ENOUGH, wonderfully and beautifully made!
When you have Christ, you are complete. He is the head over all leaders and powers. Colossians 2:10
