Will you join the Enough Movement?
This site is called “Enough”, because like most girls growing up in this society we live in– I learned from an early start that I am not ever enough.
I remember the first time I watched the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show and saw a guy from my town tweet “Why can’t the girls in our town look like this?” I soon questioned why I wasn’t skinny enough. That night, I worked out for three hours. That year, I went from a size 4 to a size 0, and still didn’t feel skinny enough.
I remember when I found out a guy wasn’t as faithful to me as I had thought. I couldn’t help but find myself questioning what I did wrong. I didn’t believe I was good enough to ever please a guy. That night, I cried and doubted my worth. The other girl was prettier than me and cooler than me, and I just wasn’t enough for this boy.
And then in college, when I failed that test I spent all week studying for, I realized I wasn’t smart enough to keep up with my classes 24/7 and have the GPA I dreamt of.
Although these are personal stories for me, I know these are normal for most girls. We doubt our worth, compare ourselves constantly, and never seem to be good enough for the world. And it is time I tell every young girl what I’ve learned in my lifetime of 19 short years–you will never be enough.
If there is one thing we struggle with as girls, it is the never-ending desire to be enough for the world. We put on makeup and that obnoxious push-up bra in hopes of being hot enough for the attractive guy in our Chemistry class. We use big words to sound smart enough for the job we want. We do everything our significant other wants us to, even if it is in a toxic relationship, in hopes of being good enough for him and feeling wanted. However, we always fall short, because the grass is greener on the other side, and yes, there is always someone out there hotter, smarter, and more “enough” than you.
However, you will never be enough for this world. See my sister, you weren’t even created for this world. While on this world you are created for a purpose that is far greater than being “pretty enough” for the hot guy, or “popular enough” to sit with the cool girls at lunch. You were created to find joy in walking with the Lord, to praise Him for His perfection. To praise Him for His love. To praise a God who looks at you, your flaws, you pimples, your 56 on your Biology test and says “you are enough for me”.
You aren’t enough for the world–and that is a beautiful thing, because it makes God’s love for you even sweeter.
So this websites for the girls who aren’t enough, admit it and are seeking to praise God through their lives. This is for the woman of God who says “forget the world, I don’t care what the world thinks, I want the Lord”.
Join the Enough Movement. Walk with the Lord daily. And never forget, the One who created puppies, carbs, and sunflowers designed you on this Earth for a reason— and that is something to praise Him for.
