WE. ARE. ENOUGH!
When will we think that we are enough? Society, family, friends, acquaintances and colleagues, can put so much pressure on us both knowingly and unknowingly. This can make us feel insecure, ugly, stupid, guilty, weak and any other negative connotation out there, but who is right? Who made the heavens and earth? Who made YOU? There is NO THING or NO ONE that our Most High God has made that is wrong, so YOU, my dear, are exactly as you are supposed to be!
You may feel as though you are finished with; at the end of your days. You may feel as though you are a lost cause. You may feel as though nothing can be done for you. You may feel as though you deserve every negative thing that has been thrown your way…but MY God…YOUR God…is telling ME/US that WE. ARE. ENOUGH!
This is no matter what age, colour, ethnicity, intellect, sex, size or whatever other way humans are categorised.
The world may try to tell you to improve in different ways so that you fit in or comply with your surroundings but, how about becoming at peace with yourself. It is when you are at peace with yourself that you will make amendments that you deem necessary. Now, with me saying that you may feel that I’m saying it in a ‘nicer’ way that you are not enough but I’m not. Our mental existence is a state of mind. You may have heard the scripture that says ‘how a man thinketh in his heart, so is he’ (Proverbs 23:7). One interpretation of this, for me, is that an individual can think negatively about themselves and live in turmoil or acceptance that they really are as they think or believe. They will live a sheltered life and not to their full potential because they do not believe they are worthy. However, putting it into that context, when there has been a complete change of mind; you begin to see yourself as what you really are and who The Most High God says you are. It is then that what you think of yourself will overflow into your life and it will truly begin. You’ll be able to walk with your head held high and life will truly be golden. How one feels is down to the individual. In the beginning our Most High God created Adam and Eve, and as when everything else was created, He saw that it was good! Affirm it!
An affirmation is the confirmation or acknowledgement that a statement or something is true. Placing an ‘I am’, ‘I can’, ‘I will’ or ‘I must’ before a statement can solidify it and make it concrete. Below are a few that I have said haphazardly. You can affirm them any number of times per day and for as long as you think it is needed. I have found the longer and more consistent you are, the better. However, it varies for each person. Depending on whether it’s your first time or according to your brain capacity (i.e whether or not you can retain a lot of information), start off with one or as many as time will allow. As you build up momentum, increase the amount or replace some. It sometimes helps to do it before a mirror, looking into your eyes and telling yourself what you are affirming. Decree and declare it!
Here are a few that have worked for me!
- I am enough
- I am fearfully and wonderfully made
- I am in charge of how I feel and TODAY I am choosing happiness
- I am made in His image
- I am whole
- I believe that nothing is impossible, if I only believe
- I deserve the best and I accept and create the best now
- I have the power to create change
- I let go of ALL that no longer serves me
- It’s a good day to have a good day
- Today I abandon old habits and take up new, more positive ones
Remember, The Most High God has given YOU this AMAZING, DYNAMIC POWER, to do, be, have and create ALL that you desire, so go out and make it.
