I used to fear and feel I wasn’t good enough or I wouldn’t be enough and then God came into my life and let me know that I am strong enough, loved enough, good enough. He led me out of the land of “enough” and gave me a garden of “saved” where I dwell in its beauty and comfort and never starve nor wonder to lands like “enough” again. “Saved” is the most beautiful, peaceful, restful, and producing place you could ever be.

So get out of “enough” and find your way to “saved” and you’ll encounter a love for you that is so deep and real that you’ll never wonder if your “enough” again.

Romans 12:1-10 (NIV)

A Living Sacrifice

12 Therefore, I urge you, brothers and sisters, in view of God’s mercy, to offer your bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God—this is your true and proper worship. Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.

Humble Service in the Body of Christ

For by the grace given me I say to every one of you: Do not think of yourself more highly than you ought, but rather think of yourself with sober judgment, in accordance with the faith God has distributed to each of you. For just as each of us has one body with many members, and these members do not all have the same function, so in Christ we, though many, form one body, and each member belongs to all the others. We have different gifts, according to the grace given to each of us. If your gift is prophesying, then prophesy in accordance with your[a]faith; if it is serving, then serve; if it is teaching, then teach; if it is to encourage, then give encouragement; if it is giving, then give generously; if it is to lead,[b] do it diligently; if it is to show mercy, do it cheerfully.

Love in Action

Love must be sincere. Hate what is evil; cling to what is good. 10 Be devoted to one another in love. Honor one another above yourselves.
