For my my beautiful sister and all the women out there.
Ladies, I wish I could go to coffee with every single one of you. I want to sit you down, look into your beautiful eyes and let you know that...
You are enough.
you always have been
you always will be
you are enough.
Say it again and again. Keep repeating it until you believe it.
We are fed so many lies from the enemy. He wants us to believe that we are inadequate women who are unable to be loved. So before you start to undermine yourself again, thinking that you are not enough, remember that you are more then a number between 1-10, you are more then how many friends you have on social media and the number of likes you get on a single photo. You're more then your new beautiful grey hair this world tells you to dye and the stretch marks that came when you carried your sweet child. Let us address these lies because it's about time we stop believing them and start to see ourselves and others the way Christ views us. God doesn't love some futuristic version of you, He loves you just as you are.
Let me speak truth over you right here and now.
It all started when you were fearfully and wonderfully made in the womb. God made you to be a unique woman with value and a purpose. How beautiful does that sound? You are Gods beloved creation. His love for you is infinite and unconditional. He chose you and brought you to life. He remembers you, loves you, redeemed you, He made you pure when darkness was in and all around you. Absolutely nothing can separate you from the love of Jesus. You are a daughter of the King.
Ephesians 1 is an amazing piece of Scripture. Lets read it together.
Greetings from Paul
1 This letter is from Paul, chosen by the will of God to be an apostle of Christ Jesus
I am writing to God’s holy people in Ephesus, who are faithful followers of Christ Jesus.
2 May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace.
3 All praise to God, the Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us with every spiritual blessing in the heavenly realms because we are united with Christ. 4 Even before he made the world, God loved us and chose us in Christ to be holy and without fault in his eyes. 5 God decided in advance to adopt us into his own family by bringing us to himself through Jesus Christ. This is what he wanted to do, and it gave him great pleasure. 6 So we praise God for the glorious grace he has poured out on us who belong to his dear Son. 7 He is so rich in kindness and grace that he purchased our freedom with the blood of his Son and forgave our sins. 8 He has showered his kindness on us, along with all wisdom and understanding.
9 God has now revealed to us his mysterious plan regarding Christ, a plan to fulfill his own good pleasure.10 And this is the plan: At the right time he will bring everything together under the authority of Christ—everything in heaven and on earth. 11 Furthermore, because we are united with Christ, we have received an inheritance from God, for he chose us in advance, and he makes everything work out according to his plan.
12 God’s purpose was that we Jews who were the first to trust in Christ would bring praise and glory to God.13 And now you Gentiles have also heard the truth, the Good News that God saves you. And when you believed in Christ, he identified you as his own by giving you the Holy Spirit, whom he promised long ago. 14 The Spirit is God’s guarantee that he will give us the inheritance he promised and that he has purchased us to be his own people. He did this so we would praise and glorify him.
Paul’s Prayer for Spiritual Wisdom
15 Ever since I first heard of your strong faith in the Lord Jesus and your love for God’s people everywhere,16 I have not stopped thanking God for you. I pray for you constantly, 17 asking God, the glorious Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, to give you spiritual wisdom and insight so that you might grow in your knowledge of God.18 I pray that your hearts will be flooded with light so that you can understand the confident hope he has given to those he called—his holy people who are his rich and glorious inheritance.
19 I also pray that you will understand the incredible greatness of God’s power for us who believe him. This is the same mighty power 20 that raised Christ from the dead and seated him in the place of honor at God’s right hand in the heavenly realms. 21 Now he is far above any ruler or authority or power or leader or anything else—not only in this world but also in the world to come. 22 God has put all things under the authority of Christ and has made him head over all things for the benefit of the church. 23 And the church is his body; it is made full and complete by Christ, who fills all things everywhere with himself.
Wow, so beautiful.
To know your value is found in Christ and not what others think of you or what you think of yourself is to understand why you are enough through Jesus. Your value is determined by how God views you, not this world.
My prayer today is that we come to understand that we have a Savior who loves us, who gave up His Son for us, which was the ultimate sacrifice. That we realize how much love our God has for us. I pray we become a generation who opens our bible to seek, pray and fast in the word. That we listen to what God wants us to hear. I pray we remember that God is enough. If we have Jesus, we have all we need. Praise be to our creator for being a good good Father. Amen
Remember today that you are a daughter of the King and that is enough<3
