Yesterday, someone said those words to me when I told them the reason why I wasn’t at a church meeting. They told me that my reason was ‘not good enough.’
I was helping out a family member with a homeless project.
Question: Was I doing good? Answer: YES
Question: Was I telling the truth? Answer: YES
So what’s the problem??
Even Jesus healed someone on the Sabbath day, so why tell me that my reason is ‘not good enough?’
To tell the truth those words cut deep, I was having an amazing time till this was said.
I feel really hurt because I believe my heart was in the right place and that is with God. Everything I am doing is for HIS glory.
I also understand that some people may not get that but that doesn’t mean ‘it’s not good enough’, it just means that I have a responsibility to myself and to God to live out my God given desires and that might not fit into other peoples expectations.
I know that the purpose God has for me is individual to who I am and hand tailored for me.
I don’t want to be in anyone’s box. I don’t even want to be in the box that I have made for myself.
I am however free to be who Christ made me, listening to his instructions solely.
I now realise that the devil used that person to discourage me, to make me second guess myself.
My deepest insecurity was that ‘I am not good enough.’
I am going to end with this.
I am Good enough.
Always listen to the still small voice inside you, it’s your Journey.
Dont let anyone make you feel bad for doing what you believe is right (as long as it’s right in Gods sight, remember he has a plan for you)
God bless x
