He is enough.

Everyone has those days. You know, those days where nothing seems to be happening the way you want it to & you just kind of feel like a let down.  That was my day yesterday & I can still feel it lingering on this morning. 

{I could also feel off to a bad start because the power went out, turned off G's music & sound machine, & startled him awake at 4:45am...but, that's another story.}

Nothing extreme happened yesterday, it just wasn't the best day ever. My car was being worked on ALL day, G only napped for 40 minutes, I felt sick off & on, and I just had negative thoughts.  Those annoying thoughts that you start to over-think & they just totally consume your brain. Yeah, those. Am I being the best mom I can be? Am I being the best wife I can be? Do I need to contribute more to our little family? Am I ready to have a new baby again? Will I be able to handle 2 kids at once? One little thought spirals out of control.

It's amazing to me that in those moments, when I don't feel like I am enough, the Lord just speaks to me. He is enough. That is what replayed over & over in my head last night as I was falling asleep. A reassuring way to end a not-so-great day. 

He is enough. I do the best that I can & am a work in progress, but HE is enough.  And goodness, I need to write that all over my mirror so I can remember that I will never be perfect. No matter how hard I try. And I'm not supposed to be. 

"My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." - 2 Corinthians 12:9

We all have those days. I have those thoughts often, wondering if I'm ready for this or that...if I'm doing the best I can. I think it means we are normal. :)

I think we've all been there - it's normal and this too shall pass. We're all trying our best and that's what counts!

We had a sermon recently called "Is God Enough?" Exactly what you are talking about. It was good to revisit it again through your eyes. You amaze me!
