You More than ENOUGH
I know there are so many voices you hear
And meant with the best intentions, yet I want you to hear this one thing
YOU ARE MORE THAN ENOUGH!
There are lies and comparisons, charades of performance
Yet He has made you brave …
Brave isn’t always the grand gestures
Brave is the listening instead of talking
Brave is fighting when you want to give up
Brave is standing when you want to fall
Brave is being more than enough!
Sometimes brave can look boring, it can feel mundane, but that’s totally ok
For you are MORE THAN ENOUGH.
I know you think it isn’t enough, you feel weak and less than
Yet within you is an inner core, strength and substance
Unshakable in the busy-ness of life.
Listen more, breathe deeply. Here. Now.
Your life has meaning and purpose, not through what you accomplish
It is the deep and honest connections, kindness and courage
Living NOT for yourself
But living present in His presence.
Your faith is protection, a shield from frantic living, soul-less seeking.
Let these words take root, let them grow, as the tangled becomes untangled
The lies die, truth emerges, strong and vibrant, fragrant and fruitful
As you yield, surrender to your Father … For you are MORE THAN ENOUGH
He is always present, never changing, constant and faithful
Choose to be present instead of perfect
Living real instead of image,
Depth over shallow
Connecting rather than comparing
Meaning over madness.
Lay it down at the altars of productivity, capability, busyness and distraction
Breathe HIM in (pause)
For you are MORE THAN ENOUGH
Mark your life with quiet
With connection and simplicity
Leave behind the toxic, pushy and over-worked
For love is not found there.
You can’t prove it, earn it nor compete for it.
Love is down in the depth of your soul, the beating of your own heart,
It is where His spirit has made home, that is where you find it.
Embrace gratitude, joy from the inside out.
Measure your life, not in tangible measures.
Instead value deeply, hold fast
The words of your Father
For. Then. Your. Soul. Feels. It’s. Worth
And you are MORE THAN ENOUGH.
