Enough

How do you live like you are enough? The theme of the student camp Passport this year is “Enough,” focusing on 2 Corinthians 12:9a, “My grace is sufficient for you, for power is made perfect in weakness.” Throughout the week the students learned that God is enough, I am enough, there is enough, and enough is enough.

The lesson from the week that stuck out to most of us was the “I am enough” lesson. No matter how old we get, there will always been something we feel like we aren’t good enough at doing or being. This is when we start to think about our weaknesses and failures and realize sometimes we don’t measure up. But what does God say about us?

“I praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works;
that I know very well,” Psalm 139:14. This verse sums up how God feels; we are exactly who we should be and that is enough for God. If this is how God made us then why do we fail and have weaknesses? Other than the obvious answer that we are human and are not perfect creatures, it is to show God’s glory. Everything that we feel isn’t good enough God can use through perfect power. But living like we know we are enough should look different than the world. This isn’t a prideful way of living, but knowing God can shine through our weaknesses. How will you live like you are enough? When we are weak, then I Am strong.
