yeah, today? just 3 powerful words to stop comparison from stealing our joy:
I. get. enough…
because I get enough Jesus — and Jesus for me is enough.
because I get enough God — and God in me is enough.
because I get enough grace — and His grace to me is enough.
because I get enough Love — and His Love all around me, for me, in me, is enough.
I’m enough… because I get enough — because I get enough Jesus and He’s enough for me.
