26 Days of Thanksgiving: Day 23

A couple of days ago, I was feeling the weight of the world. All day, I was feeling like I was not good enough. I needed to sit through the pain, process, yet I could not just get out of my own head.

By the end of the day, my husband was getting ready to teach. And, I decided to take the kids, go get gas, a Dr. Pepper, some Hershey’s Milk Chocolate, and go on a drive.

After we filled up, and left the gas station, I was talking to God, telling Him, it was too much. I hate feeling this way. And, He sent me two songs. At just the right moment, He sent me a song about moving mountains, and a song about being enough.

And, in that moment, I felt heard and known, and seen by Him. And the weight of not feeling like I was enough, lifted.

Today, I’m thankful for these God moments.

Also- please know, that if you’re feeling like it’s too much, or you are not enough. You are. You are loved, you are more than enough, just the way you were created to be.
