You are (not) enough.

We’ve all read the mom blogs that tell us over and over again; You are enough. I do understand that those mamas mean well when they say this. But, I’ve got some news for you…. 
You are not enough.
And it’s ok. 
If parents were enough for their kids, then they wouldn’t need Jesus. Our children were loaned to us for a short period of time so that we can show Christ’s love to them and teach them about Him. 
We are incomplete.
We fail daily.
We are insufficient.
2 Corinthians 12: 9 And He said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for My strength is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore most gladly I will rather boast in my infirmities, that the power of Christ may rest upon me. 10 Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in needs, in persecutions, in distresses, for Christ’s sake. For when I am weak, then I am strong.

He completes us.
He cannot fail us.
He is sufficient for us. 
He is enough.
We have got to stop trying to be the perfect Pinterest mom and just trust God to be all that we need. Let Jesus in to fill the holes that nothing or no one else can fill.
The only way we can take care of ourselves, our husbands, our kids, work a full time job, keep the house clean, cook, and accomplish the million other things us mamas have to do is by leaning on Jesus. We cannot be perfect apart from Him. He is the only One who makes us righteous. When you don’t feel worthy or good enough, allow Him to complete you. He is always there when we need Him. God’s grace alone has the power to meet our needs. It is help in our time of need. It is enough.
