good enough

Many times I personally struggle with not measuring up.  No matter how hard I try, I often feel like I miss the mark, that I am unable to attain some imaginary level of expectation I have placed on myself, or maybe others have place on me.  I have also had the opportunity to meet several people who share the same feelings.  It almost feels like we wear a mask hoping that no one will see the real person underneath.  The "not good enough" father, mother, husband, wife, worker, christian or person.  We can go through periods of anxiety, depression or even sadness, hoping no one will see the real person underneath the mask.

Yet despite these insecurities, God loves me (and you) with an everlasting love (Jer. 31:3), and this love can not be earned and is not based on performance or worldly expectation.  God's love is true and is based on His nature not mine.  I can rest today in God's love for me because my "not good enough" is "good enough" for Him.
