Enough

enough

 

perfection:

the condition, state, or quality of being free or as free as possible from all flaws or defects.

 

I ran into the lawn mower in our garage this winter and now it is busted. busted.

I wear clinical strength deodorant. clinical.

I never make my bed. never.

Sometimes I feel totally overwhelmed. totally.

I always leave the laundry until Sunday. always.

Awkward. I feel this way always.

Not good enough. I feel this way always.

 

Perfection. Trying always.

Reading that definition. Why do we do that to ourselves?

It is not happening. Ever.

 

His grace is enough. It really is when I slow down long enough to think about it.

It is sufficient. Everything we need.

 

Love to you this Monday.

  1. Awwww, Lisa. I think you’ve read some of my posts about Enough. Thank goodness we don’t have to try to be enough in our own strength. God makes us enough through Jesus. The trick is to believe that we don’t have to be more than He’s made us to be. I think He gives us weaknesses, failings so that we will learn the beauty of depending on Him rather than on ourselves . . . both in how we perceive ourselves and in the things we do. With His grace, we are enough. Always.

    Hugs, friend!

  2. Thanks for sharing this, Lisa! Good words to meditate on. We don’t have to have it all together. It’s always good to hear from you, friend! Have missed your place!
