I originally wrote this in December 2009, but it still fits. I'm linking it up to Holley Gerth's blog today. She is so full of encouragement!

I am not enough.

The battle wages.

What makes me enough?

Head-knowledge versus heart-knowledge.

The head says:
“You are God’s beloved daughter. That is enough.”

The heart says:

“You must be enough on your own. Try harder.

Keep pushing. Harder.

You’ll never accomplish it all.

But keep trying.

“Abide in Me.”

“Push harder!”

“It is finished.

You are complete in me.”

“I must fill this void.

Push, push, push.”

“I make you whole.

You can do nothing on your own power.”

But...if I abide, doesn’t that mean I am giving up?


It feels like weakness.

Head-knowledge battles heart-knowledge.

Feelings are not always true.

Listen to Truth.

That is enough.

Very fitting and isn't that the way it goes with the alternating voices! That's why we need to learn to hear God's truth above all! Beautiful post!

Thank you! Yes, it is so important to keep ourselves saturated with Truth. Something I need to work on continually.

It's so hard not to put our feelings first. I struggle with this daily. This is a great post. Thank you so much for this reminder.

Thank you, Holley!

Stacey, you know I share the struggle, friend. I'm glad it was a good reminder for you, too.
