You Are Enough

Here is another insightful post from Carlee Lane. Carlee will challenge you as she reminds you that God will accept you as you are! This is a blogger you should follow!

In all that you are, in whatever place you may be, and in all that you do… You are enough.

There aren’t any prizes for, or even such a thing as, being the best Christian. There’s only grace.
We fall into these traps that try to wreck our relationships with God, because we believe that our performance produces God’s love and happiness toward us.
And that’s just not how it works.

We believe a lot of lies when it comes to seeking God’s approval. Here’s the thing- it’s already been given. He wants to love us. He does love us. Perfectly and completely. I’m working on believing that, rather than the lies I may be told from people who possibly have the very best of intentions. It’s not a performance, it’s a relationship.

Listen, tired one. Listen, striving one. Listen closely.
You don’t have to wake up early…

  1. Funny thing: I set my alarm label this morning as “with God I am enough.” Perfect timing for this reblog!

    • How often do we forget that though? We add all kinds of rules, imposed by ourselves or others, that oppress us. The rules are not Biblical commands but additions in the way the Jewish faith has extrapolated the Bibles rules. Something to be said about getting back to the basics.

      We visited a friends church on Sunday and as the pastor was illustrating his point he spoke about how we add rules to our faith. Or even worse, we allow others to add rules to us. He said why are we making things up if the Spirit has not placed it on our hearts? Pretty cool thoughts.
