Good Enough

2cor.jpgHave you ever struggled with thinking you’re not good enough?  I have.  When I am wearing so many hats – wife, mother, employee, team leader – it’s hard to not have that thought from time to time.

I am so thankful, though, that I don’t have to be good enough.  Because boy, if we really HAD to be good at all of our roles – wouldn’t that be a lot of pressure?  2 Corinthians 3:5 says “It is not that we think we are qualified to do anything on our own.  Our qualification comes from God.”

If you struggle with these things too, let’s remember that God is always there for us.  Noah did not feel qualified to build an ark, but through God, he was able to.  Moses sure did not feel qualified to lead the Jews from Egypt, but through God, he was able to.  There are so many stories like this in the Bible that can give us hope.

Prayer:  Father, help me to look to you in guidance in the things I do.  Help me to use your word as an outline for my life.  Thank you for sending your son, Jesus, to be perfect for me so I don’t have to be.
