A lie I've believed

There's something that's been on my heart lately when it comes to blogging.
I write these words not just for myself, but for others as well.
Just I case someone can relate, just incase someone is struggling with the same thing.

There's a lie that I've boughten into when it comes to blogging.
The lie is that I'm not good enough.
I, at times, especially lately have felt that way.
I'm not good enough because I don't have as many followers as her
Or my blog doesn't look professional enough.
I struggle with feeling ordinary and boring.
I've caught myself thinking that a lot lately.
I must be boring because I don't have as many blogging friends as her,
I don't go to all these events,
Or I don't have all these neat topics to write about.
I'm not as good as her because I don't have a professional taking my pictures
or I can't go buy new clothes or the newest gadget whenever my heart desires.
Lies, lies, lies!

I don't know how I came to believe this.
I think it's been building up for a while now,
because the truth is when I started blogging I didn't even care about those things,
at least not the way I seem to now!
Blogging, for me, was never about those things.
It was about writing for me and my family.
It was about keeping an online journal of the life I live and if people wanted to read it, great!
If not, that's fine because this is my life and regardless of what others think of my life, I love it!

More importantly than others thinking I'm enough, Go does!
I know that God loves me.
To Him, I am important, beautiful, and more than enough.
I struggle with feeling at peace in the blogging world and here in this space.
I'm asking Him right now to give me peace here...
with what I have in my life and with my words.
Because peace from God and being thankful for what I have is what really matters to me.

If you struggle with this, please read these words and hold onto them.
You are enough to God. He is the only one you need to please.
Remember that and hold tight to it, friends!


  1. this is so important to remember. it is easy to get caught up in blogging - and every once in awhile i catch myself feeling down (or up) from petty things. perspective is key...thanks for sharing this!

    1. I agree! Sometimes I have to step away from it all! Thanks for reading!

  2. I don't know a single blogger that doesn't or hasn't at some point struggled with this. At some point you have to either give in or let it take over to the point where you quit. Sure we all still worry from time to time, but knowing that you're enough regardless of what other bloggers are going through is what matters!!! :)

    1. I agree... all bloggers have gone through this! I definitely have to step away from sometimes so I don't get caught up in it!

  3. Right on, girl. I needed this reminder today!

  4. ahhhhh ...
    I'm in the same bought. Thank you for speaking truth!!
