When you’re feeling like you’re not good enough

imageRemember this, there’s a reason you’re here. There’s a reason you survived your birth, the car ride to work today, the heat of the summer, the sickness you’re enduring, and so many other things. You are a survivor, and you have a purpose, because God destined you with one.

In Christ, you are worth so much more than riches and worldy possessions. He placed you on this earth to make a difference. Some may reach the world and some may reach a few. We all have different gifts and abilities suited perfectly for our purpose.

2 Corinthians 12:9 But he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.” Therefore I will boast all the more gladly of my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may rest upon me.

We are weak. The flesh is weak. Our God is strong. His power is made perfect in weakness, which means, His power is unmatched when it dwells in us. Claim His power in your life and surrender your life to Him. Everything He wants for you is what’s best and out of love for you.

You are enough, because God says so. That guy who dumped you? That friend who dissed you? They don’t have any idea of your worth and beauty. Pray for their heart and their happiness, then move on. Find people who see your strength, abilities, beauty, and originality!

Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s Day to this guy. I wouldn’t have the high expectations I do, the strength to carry on when I’m knocked down, the courage to persevere, and the ability to take a step back when needed if it weren’t for him. He has taught me some of the most important life lessons and has been the backbone to our family for 30+ years. He’s why I stand firm in what I believe and am my own person without regret. Love you, Dad.

Happy Father’s Day, everyone! This is an oldie but a goodie. I had the pleasure of photographing my brother and beautiful sister-in-law’s wedding in 2010. This is one of my favorite moments. A man who didn’t have to be there stepped up and has been a wonderful dad, friend, and provider. Thanks to all those dads who didn’t have to be dads!
