To everyone thinking that they aren’t enough. Don’t believe that lie. Remember that you are enough. You are enough otherwise you wouldn’t even be here. God has a plan and a purpose for your life. If He didn’t then you wouldn’t be here and you wouldn’t be living your life.

Find Your Purpose

Your purpose is a very special and unique one. It takes guts and determination to figure out what your passions and purposes are in life. But God will help you take the right steps and take the right actions to get to where He wants you to be in life.

Your True Friends Value You

You are enough for your friends. They want to be around you and they want to spend time with you. Your true friends want to see you succeed in your life. They will even help you decide which paths to take and cheer you on as you continue to accomplish your goals throughout your journey. You are also enough for your family. Your family will always be there for you, through thick and thin. They are there for you through all of your highs and lows. They love you and want nothing more than for you to succeed in life.

You Will Make It

To those of you who never thought you would get anywhere in life, you will make it. Never listen to the naysayers. Never give in to the lies of Satan telling you that you aren’t enough either. Satan wants you to believe that you will never accomplish anything or make anything of yourself. Anyone else who says that about you might be jealous of the things that you can accomplish as well. If people are jealous of you, you can actually use that as a stepping stone to help yourself reach your goals.

Don’t Listen to Other People

It can be difficult at times to not let the words of other people bring you down, but if you let their words get to you, then you will, unfortunately, start to believe the lies that others say about you.  Rather than listen to them, listen to your heart and know that you are going to do well in your life. Know that you are someone special to your friends, your family and most importantly, that you are someone very special to God. More than that, you are sacred to God. He made you in His image and knows you by name.

God Will Help You Make Your Dreams Happen

God would not bring you this far in life to not have your dreams, aspirations, and passions become a reality. If you have a dream and you work hard enough, He will help you make it happen.

The Right Job Will Come

To those who are struggling to find a job, the right job will come in time. God will help you get the right job, in the right field and with the right company. Wherever you are supposed to be at, you will end up there. It is all in God’s perfect timing though. He will help you know which jobs to look at and apply for, and which ones to let pass through your grasp.

Enjoy Your Job

Don’t let anyone stop you from doing the job you want to do. If you want to become an astronaut, a doctor, or a nurse, go for it. If you want to work at McDonald’s just to make extra money, jump at the chance. Anything you want to do, you can do. Always do something because you want to do it, not because someone else tells you to do it. Find the job that you love. That way working will actually seem less like work.

You Can Get Through School

To those who struggled in high school to get good grades, you still made it to the other side. You are stronger than you think and braver than you believed. Keep believing in yourself. Amazing things will happen to you. For those still in high school or college struggling to get the grades you need, you will graduate. God will give you the right teachers and professors to help you navigate through school. They will motivate and challenge you. Take each day as a learning experience and don’t ever give up. You will graduate and get the diploma.

To those of you who saw how others sailed through high school or college with honors and with ease, don’t even worry about them. They aren’t you.  Just because you might not have gotten a scholarship in either of those times in your life, doesn’t mean that you were a bad student. Just because you didn’t get the grades that they did, does not make you a bad person, either.

 Everyone Has Struggles

Everyone has struggled in school at some point. Remember, those people who sailed through school with ease will have struggles in other areas of their life, too. Life hands us struggles, no matter how hard you can try to fight them off.  It may not always be in school, but they will struggle with different tasks. Just because you struggled in school and they didn’t, doesn’t make you a worse student. You know how hard you worked to graduate, without the scholarships. Your perseverance proved to be all that was needed.

Give Your Doubt to God

To those who have struggled or still are struggling with self-doubt, fear of failure, or, uncertainty, things will turn around.  As long as you work hard, keep pushing forward through any of your setbacks.  Learn from the mistakes you have made, you will succeed at anything in life.

Be proud of what you have overcome instead of looking at how far you have to go. Look at the glass half full instead of the glass half empty. Be proud of the person you have become through your struggles. They often shape you into the person you are meant to be for the rest of your life.
