Is it Good Enough
Sometimes it seems like even if we show up, it’s not good enough. We should be doing something, helping in some way. But that’s not always possible. Maybe it seems like no one wants what you have to offer. Maybe life has gotten the best of you and all you have left is a dream. That’s all it takes.
My shortcomings lately have been a little overwhelming. I can’t do this and I can’t do that, so what’s the point? It seems like the whole world, one person after the other, has told me I wasn’t good enough. Even when it comes to just volunteering my time and trying to help others, people are simply not interested in what I have to offer. It’s discouraging and lately, it has sucked dry every ounce of hope I had.
Just Show Up
I’ll be the first to admit, it’s not easy for me to let go. I dedicate a lot of time and energy to being the best I can be, so this constant beat down is a bit too much. Lately, God has given me a serious talking to. Sometimes, the discouragement is deafening and I can’t really hear or understand what he’s trying to tell me, but when He does, the message is always the same. My weaknesses don’t matter. He does not require perfection, He requires me to just show up. The rest is up to Him. People might or might not be interested in what I have to offer, but it’s not my job to make them see my worth. My own job is make myself available for what God has called me to do.
