  1. Whoa. Beautiful words.
    It’s sometimes not about being “enough” is it? It’s about being “too much.” And where is the “goodness” in that? And what is “beauty” or “success” or “achievement” anyway?
    Faithfulness, goodness and true heart beauty is never going to be found in a weight or dress size. Or IQ. Or college acceptance. Or salary. Truth is only found when God woos us. A deep, passionate longing He has for us.
    I, too, have asked for the mountain to be moved. (Several of them, as a matter of fact.) And it never, never, never happens. But God is still on His throne.
    So I asked – what do You want me to do, God? His response? Love me. Spend time with me. Make me your priority. I long to love you – Just as you are.


    • absolutely about being “too much” sometimes. And funny how “too much” can feel like not enough.

      and, amen!
