It’s hard feeling like you’re not good enough. I’ve been feeling that a bit lately.
God has blessed me with certain passions and dreams that I just cannot get rid of. I try to focus on something else because my dreams are big. My dreams are scary. It’ll take a lot of time and hard work to achieve them. Isn’t everything worth having worth working hard for?
He’s growing me through it, that’s for sure. But oh, those lies that can pop into our heads. The ones that disguise themselves as truth, but they are surely lies. The ones that tell us we’re not good enough, smart enough, pretty enough, tall enough, short enough, small enough, big enough, talented enough. The lies that compare us to the people around us who seem happier and more successful.
We have to fight those lies. We can’t beat ourselves up about it. God always chose the underdogs for the biggest victories.
Lately, I’ve been feeling like quite the underdog. But, God used them and He’s going to use me. I must simply be open to however that may happen. I’m so grateful for those passions He’s given me and the desire to work hard to achieve my dreams and to follow my passion.
He’s writing this story. I’ve seen His hand in so many chapters of my life and goodness, what I thought was best at the time wasn’t even close to what He had planned for me. It was always SO much better.
I must simply work hard, keep praying, and trust that He’s taking care of this chapter better than I ever could. I can’t wait to see what happens.
Linking up with my sweet friend, Heather, today!
