What does "You Are Enough" mean to you?
"You Are Enough" means that even when I feel in pieces, broken to the point of despair, I am made whole. No matter what flaws or weakness I see, He sees right through. He loves me "AS IS". I chose to live in this theme because I can see my Father looking into my eyes, reminding me everyday of my worth and value as far more than I could ever comprehend.
SHARE A Story THAT AFFIRMED THIS TRUTH.
Last winter I had experienced a spiritual warfare that I did not think I could overcome. On a drive through the mountains, I overlooked the city and saw a vast amount of creation. I pulled over and walked through the brush to a point of scenery to speak to God away from distraction. In fear, I told God, I did not have what it takes to overcome such obstacles. I doubted my gifts, I doubted my strengths, and most of all, I doubted Him. A sense of warmth and peace then overcame me. I started to see every door He opened for me as if a projection film was displayed. It was flashbacks of my life. Whenever I fell, His hand was always extended. When I could not even crawl in tears, He carried me. When I needed someone to talk to, He was waiting there patiently.
With Him, I have been able to serve to impact, pray expectantly, and love unconditionally to those He leads me to. In my imperfections, He makes me perfect. Just as I am, I come to Him.
WHAT ONE Encouragement WOULD YOU LIKE TO LEAVE OUR READERS?
I want to encourage those who are reading this to never feel worthless. You ARE beautifully and wonderfully made in His image to live. You are not a mistake but rather a handcrafted creation that is designed with a divine purpose. Spend time with Him, distractions aside, and most of all be vulnerable to Him molding you. And to remember, You ARE Enough.
As Brandon has found his worth, we hope that this can inspire you to seek yours. We may think we know who we are. But let's face it, we are constantly changing. Some days are harder than others, as we come up against new challenges that impede on our self-worth. Brandon is a friend and brother to me. I admire how he lives out his life, approaching each day completely raw, real, and relational.
