Good Enough

But God  demonstrates His love toward us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.

Romans 5:8


The “voice” speaks to me at the most inopportune times and in the most out of the way places.  Sometimes it screams, and sometimes it whispers.  It’s not always there, but I feel its presence much of the time.  It’s the voice that whispers, “You’re not quite good enough”.

As a woman on the journey, this voice is one I’m trying to silence.  Daily I remind myself that God accepts me where I am and as I am.  God doesn’t expect perfection, and neither should I.  Christ died because of my  sins.  Because of His sacrifice, God has forgiven every past, present and future sin.  I can rest in His love and calmly, not frantically, strive to accomplish what He wants me to accomplish today.  If I’m good enough for God, through Christ, then I must be truly good enough.

That voice that is whispering  “you’re not quite good enough”  is whispering a lie.

Thought for the day:  Perfection is only found in Heaven.  But because Christ died for me, I’m good enough for God.
