What does it mean to be Enough?

     I hope I am not alone in this, and I don't think I am, but I struggle with what it means to be enough.  As well as I struggle with am I enough.  When I think about what it means to be enough I usually think about things that we have enough of or not enough of in our country.  Such as we have enough food, water, and shelter.  I have never once in my life gone hungry because I didn't have food.  Yes, I recognize that even in our country there are people who don't have this luxury but in comparison to other countries the needs are far different.  When I think of enough I think of a girl can never have enough shoes or chocolate. 

     But, enough isn't just an outward presence.  Enough is relative to how I feel inwardly as well.  I have always felt lacking!  I am not smart enough, pretty enough, thin enough, funny enough, athletic enough, loyal enough, friendly enough, compassionate enough, I'm just not enough is what I tell myself.  What really is enough though and who am I letting define enough?  I think being enough means using what you have to get through where you are.  I may not be enough for tomorrow, but God will provide for my future.  What I need to rest in is that I am enough for my present.  God has equipped me for this moment.  I challenge you to see that you are enough right now and right now is exactly where you are.
