I have struggled most of my life feeling inadequate. I often fear even calling my sister just to chat with her. I have to remind myself she is my sister and I would be excited to have her call me. Even if she had nothing to say. Do you ever feel that way? Do you feel you need to be more do more? Maybe you feel you should not want more than you currently have.
Ask, Seek, Knock
In Matthew 7:7 We are Told Ask, Seek, Knock. “Ask and it will be given to you; seek and you will find; knock and the door will be opened to you. I often tell myself “no one knows If I don’t tell them. Back when I was a single mom, I remember it was so hard to ask. I needed help in almost every area of my life. Since I worked a conventional job, I needed someone who could watch my kid and I did not make enough money so I needed help with food. And often the housing was another story altogether.
When I opened my browser, this morning getting ready to type this article and struggling a bit because it meant barring a part of myself. I found Ephesians 6:12-13 (NIV) it reminded me of this subject of feeling inadequate was not how God would want us to feel.
If you remember in John 3:16 it says God loved us (that means you) that he gave his one and only Son, to die on a cross for us who believe in him. Meaning he loves you. Remember Jeremiah 29:11 (NIV) For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the Lord, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
So, are you worthy to ask? The answer in your head should be a resounding yes! I hope. I hope that you have seen you are more than enough. That you have value.
