Life is hard. This world is full of sin and sickness, terrible pain and death. So how can I claim that "it's a good thing"? The beauty is in the battle and strength comes through the struggle. God is over all of it and it's a good thing.
I am NOT enough. I can't "do it all." I long to be able to do and be all the things. But I can't, and the truth is that I may be able to get most of it done sometimes, but I'll never be completely enough. I'm going to let my friends down. I'm going to let my family down. I'm going to let my children down. I'm going to keep letting myself down... as long as my focus is on "my do it myself" and my list of personal expectations is long. I am not enough. But God IS enough.
