Never Enough


If only I could

Be better . . . 

Accomplish greater . . .

Need less . . .

Love deeper . . .

Work harder . . .

I have to do more so I will be loved more

But the truth is no matter how hard I try, it will never be enough, and that statement scares me to death.  My identity is found in what I do, and if what I do is not enough, then that means I am not enough.


If God's love for me is based strictly on who I am, then I'm in BIG trouble because I'm no one special.  But I just realized something.  God's love for me is not based on who I am, but on WHO HE IS.  I can't earn God's love because God IS Love. 


Father, I feel like such a failure.  I've broken all the rules and let everyone down . . . and I believe I have let you down too.  I'm scared, and tired, and I feel alone.  Yet when I open my eyes I see the signs of Your Love all around me.  You are trying to remind me that I am loved. 

God, "I do believe, but help me overcome my unbelief!” (Mark 9:24)


Many blessings,

  1. "Yet when I open my eyes I see the signs of Your Love all around me." And out of that great Love flows our only hope... the One who continues to save us from the enemy and from ourselves. Beautiful post... love your heart.

  3. Our true identity is based solely in Him. It's so hard to separate what we do with who we are. I am so thankful that God accepts me, failures and all!

  4. Hi Lisa - ahhh, thank you for this great reminder. Our self worth is not found in who we are, but who we are in Christ. And He loves us because of who He is. Amen and amen
    God bless
