When You Feel Like You’re Not Good Enough

When You Feel Like You’re Not Good Enough


Do you ever get that awful feeling that you’re not good enough?

Sometimes I’ll be thinking about something I want to do or dreams I want to fulfill, and all of a sudden a feeling of self-doubt comes over me. It’s like someone’s telling me I’ll never measure up. My friend Gary shared on his blog how he finally came up with an answer to his “You’re not good enough” feeling:

First, he just admits it. He tells himself, “You got that right. I’m all wrecked up. You don’t know the half of it.” Then he reminds himself that his “good enough” comes from God. And that settles the performance part.

The truth is, when we belong to Jesus, we’re covered in His goodness. We’re loved and accepted because God is constantly offering us His love and grace. So, it’s His goodness that makes us good enough!
