Five Minute Friday - enough

Every Friday we unite for five minutes to write on one word. Only five minutes, that's all we get, that's all we have. And then, right where we are, no edits or second-thoughts, we publish those words. This week, we write on enough.

It's my worry
my heavy
my concern.
Will I ever be enough?
For you
for me
for him
for us.
Will I measure up?

But you all, you are enough.
You have always been enough.
To tame my anxious.
To give me my second chance.
To remind me of what is important.
You have always been enough.

Will I give enough of myself
to you
to my work
to him
to us
to my business
to my friends
to me.
Will I ever be enough for me?

But you all, you are enough.
For me
for us
for you.
You have filled a void.
You fill me full.

And I know where the insecurity comes from.
It's not hard to remember a time I was never enough.
I could never do enough,
accomplish enough,
fill a void they had,
bring about enough pride,
enough love.

But you all, you are enough.
You are the definition of love
your love will always be more than enough.
You are what I am most proud of,
finding you all, starting this journey.
Taking this first step and finding you all, creating this life,
you are more than enough.

I may sit in wonder forever now.
I may always have this question looming.
My worth may always be something I grapple with.
Something I fight for.
Even when I have had enough of wondering, even when I have had enough with the doubt.

But you all, you are enough.
You are all enough.



  1. Joanne Viola says:

    It is so true. All that is in our life reminds us that we do not need to be enough. He is enough for all and in all things.

  2. I figure as long as you've given Him your heart, you've given enough. He'll do the heavy lifting.
