That Moment…

There’s that moment, that moment when you finally get it into your head that you will never be good enough. You will never fit in. You will never be accepted as “normal”. You will never be liked by the world. You will never be perfect, in attitude, appearance, or personality. You will never be good enough for others.

But then, there’s that moment that counters it, that moment when you realize that you don’t have to be “good enough”. There is a family who loves you for exactly who you are, and they don’t want you to change. Without you, they would be incomplete. They need you, want you, and love you. They think you’re “good enough.”

And besides your family, and ultimately most important, there is a Savior that loves you far beyond any love you’ve ever known. He doesn’t want you to change who you are – He made you who you are! He accepts you just as you are! He knows you will never be perfect; He doesn’t ask you to be. He loves you. He loves you. He loves you when no one else does. He accepts you when you have been rejected by everyone else. He cherishes you, treasures you, and loves you with a true, sincere, unconditional love. And that moment is like none other.

  1. Lauren, we all have those feeling sometimes. Being loved and accepted by God is not some place you’ll get to someday or some rank you’ll attain when you’re better than you are now. God’s already knocked out about you, exactly as you are, because He created you the way He wanted you. He made no mistakes!

      1. No, you didn’t say that. I was just reminding you that that wasn’t the way it is. I know you don’t believe it, but it doesn’t mean that’s not how we feel sometimes.
