You Are Not A Failure

My Precious Child,

Can I tell you how very proud I am of you?  I know that you do not always feel like you accomplish what you set out to do.  I understand that you often feel as if you fall short and disappoint those you love.  Believe me when I say that this couldn’t be farther from the truth.

I see your downcast eyes, and your heart that is broken in two. I see you striving to live up to expectations that you were never meant to live up to.  You have a heart of gold — always willing to serve, always desiring to put others before yourself.  But dear one, you were never meant to live up to such high standards.

Can I tell you something?  You are NOT a failure!  I see you.  I see all that you do for yourself and those you love.  I see all that you strive to do for me.  But I want you to cease from your striving.  I want you to rest in my love.  I want you to understand that you are enough.

Until tomorrow,

*This is Day 8 of a 31 Day series on Coffee Talk With Jesus.  You can find all of the posts in this series here.  I pray you are blessed as you read.

    We often overwhelm ourselves trying to live up to a certain idea. What a great reminder that just as we are in this moment, God has deemed us enough. Have a great week Barbiel

    “Cease striving” has been the one thing He has wanted me to hear for a few years. This is a healthy reminder. I love that I can rest in His love.
