Am I Enough?

Am I Enough? 

Absolutely not. 

And absolutely yes. 

It’s a paradox: a seemingly absurd or self-contradictory statement or proposition that when investigated or explained may prove to be well founded or true. 

You are nowhere near enough. 

You are absolutely enough. 

How can both be true? 

Today is my last day working for Union Gospel Mission. In this, my last blog post, I wanted to explore a truth, a crazy paradox, that God has been teaching me over and over again – a glimmer here, a slice there – for the past fourteen and a half years (and, honestly, the lesson started long before that). UGM proved to be an excellent training ground for the most profound lesson of my life.
