It is an awesome thought to consider that we are often rejected by men, but are totally accepted by God. The world is constantly telling us that we are not enough, that who we are is not good enough to garner its approval. We are told that we are too young, too old; too fat, too skinny; too dark, too pale. The list goes on and on; it's never ending. No matter what you do, no matter how many changes you make, no matter how arduously you twist and contort yourself to fit the mold society has created for you, the world's message essentially remains the same: you are not enough. And so, many young women starve themselves to be thinner. Some black people buy bleaching creams to be lighter, while other white people are using tanning creams to be darker. It's all insanity!
But in the midst of all the world's pomp and circumstance, if you are still enough, if you are quiet enough, you hear a gentle voice saying, "You are enough for me". That is what I heard this morning. I knew instantly who it was and I could feel my spirit tremble in the presence of a truth so simple, so unassuming, so liberating and yet so easily overlooked and forgotten.
I am enough for God. I don't have to be any taller or shorter; lighter or darker; younger or older. No, I am enough for God. The world requires more, but all that God wants from me is me, to see my face, to hear my voice, to walk with me and talk with me. I satisfy God. What a thought! Almighty God, the indescribable Mystery who is the source of all that is, all that ever was and all that will ever be is satisfied by me and my company.
You are enough for God. You. Just as you are. Black, white; rich, poor; gay, straight, you are enough for God and all that God wants from you is you, to see your smile, to hear your laughter, to go through life's journey with you. When everything is going well and when everything has shattered to pieces on the ground God wants to be with you. You are enough for God. Your presence satisfies God. Divine Love is extending itself to you. Why wait another moment to embrace it? You are enough for God.
