  1. In Courage,

    For years I felt “Not enough” Being born with two punctured ear drums made life hard. Three surgeries later the right ear fixed, but the left one wasn’t. Had to take speech pathology classes all through HS. not being able to hear good made me shy. Thus I didn’t have many friends. I always felt like everyone else’s life was moving forward while I felt stagnant. Even my sisters seemed to be moving on & enjoying life. I was constantly comparing my life to others. It wasn’t until a few years ago that I felt I belonged. God sent me some trials that helped me see my worth. I felt important & useful. Now I have a job that requires much thinking & caring. God took my inadequacies & has shown me how I can use them for His glory. I know a little sign language. I do sign language to music for my church. In the end I thank God for my drawbacks. That is what He used to build & grow me to the person I am today.

    Blessings 🙂

  2. thank you for this! i am in a season where i am learning me and am gradually releasing the measuring stick that has been my constant companion. i am learning who i am in Christ and that the comparisons i’ve long harbored have undermined his craftsmanship and minimized both Him and me. over a year ago, my pastor’s wife told me i am enough. it didn’t make sense then, but it is now starting to sink in. i am enough! and what i’m not…God is!
