You Are Enough || Preparation for 2019
I came across some really good stuff during my time of meditation this morning and wanted to share it with y’all 💞 Hope it’s encouraging for someone.
Don’t settle. Don’t give into fear. Don’t stand on the edge of all God has for you. You’re allowed to be happy. You’re allowed to be blessed. You’re allowed to live a full life. -Holley Gerth
When God instills a God-sized dream in your heart He is telling you YOU ARE ENOUGH. You know enough. You have what it takes. You may not think it, feel it, or see anything in front of you that proves it, but it’s true because callings and comfort don’t go hand in hand. - Kristen Strong + Pastor Jeremey
We’ve got less than two months left in this year, and it’s forcing me to take a step back to ask myself a few questions in preparation for 2019. What did I do well? Where can I make improvements? In what areas of my life am I playing it small? What am I believing for in 2019? What are those big, bold, specific prayers I need to lock into?
If abundance is the response to thoughts and feelings of abundance and the conviction that we are actually worthy of every good thing we’re believing for, it’s up to us to continually commit ourselves to believing we are worthy of God’s best for our lives. Not a fraction. Not someone else’s leftovers. But His absolute best uniquely tailored just for us.
Some of us feel stuck wondering what our calling is. And maybe that’s the prayer. Lord show me my gifts and talents. Show me my purpose, my calling. Give me the confidence to commit to it and pursue it wholeheartedly.
In bible study the other night, a line stuck out to me in Mark Batterson’s book, The Circle Maker, while Warren was reading: You never know what you’re praying for —I love that. Even our biggest grandest vision is still only a glimpse into the fullness of what He has for us. Imagine all the beauty that can come from a willingness to embrace our journey. Happy Monday guys! Have a great week!
