    What a great, encouraging message, Lois! So often I find myself feeling like I am not enough, comparing myself to whoever. But you are so right, only Jesus is enough and I need to set my eyes on Him to see that in Him, I am enough because He makes me able. Thank you for sharing this!

  3. Brenda says:

    Love! Great post, Lois. Praise Jesus, He’s always been enough. ((hug))

  4. A beautiful truth and reminder! Thank you Lois! Blessings to you!

  5. So wise, Lois. I can always tell when I’m too Me-focused, because I begin to over-analyze things and start wondering how I’m perceived by others. Better to spend my time wondering if I’m pleasing God and living up to HIS plans for my life.

  6. Simple yet powerful truth. I am not enough nor am I not not enough. I am the way God made me and HE is enough!

  7. Lesley says:

    This is so true and I needed this reminder today that we shouldn’t be comparing ourselves to others wondering if we are enough but looking to Jesus and knowing that he is enough.

  8. Hi Lois,
    You’re right that there is much talk about being enough! And so many of us do fight feelings of being less than in some area of our lives, but since I don’t think we can ever completely eliminate them, trusting that God is enough for us lifts our hearts in hope. The comparison game never satisfies, does it? I’ll be thinking about these words today . . .

      You’re right about the comparison game, Valerie. The opportunities to play it are everywhere, and they sometimes pop up when I’m least expecting them! Reading your words made me think of those greater than/less than math problems we used to do in grade school … I’m so thankful God doesn’t see us as compare/contrast problems or numbers or anything else but the wonderful individuals He designed each of us to be. I hope you have a wonderful day, my friend!

  10. Kristina says:

    Look at Jesus he is enough! Amen! He did it all and has made me who I am. What a truth to hold onto during the hard times visiting from #tellhisstory #18

    Well, this is so well said, concise, and true true true.

    May we only look to the Lover of our souls to find our true worth that comes from Him.

    Thanks, Lois …

    I love the lens you point us to, Lois. “Look at Jesus and know that He is enough.” I need the reminder every day that I will always be enough in Him. Blessings and hugs to you!

  13. That’s a powerful antidote to comparison: Look to Jesus and remember that HE is enough!

  14. I absolutely love this, Lois. I’ve been pondering these questions often lately. When I get stuck in these “striving for more” places in life, I have to stop and think, will it ever be enough? Will I ever be enough? Thank you for this: “Look at Jesus and know that He is enough.” That is truly the answer.
