If you are trying to be good enough, just stop. Just stop and be who you are. Quit trying to be good enough. Take a lesson from the glorious eagle below:

Inspiring, right? So are YOU. May I tell you a little bit about who you are?
The entire universe waits with excitement,
yearning to see the unveiling
of God’s glorious sons and daughters!
For this is the hope of our salvation.
But hope means that we must trust
and wait for what is still unseen.
For why would we need to hope
for something we already have?
So because our hope is set
on what is yet to be seen,
we patiently keep on waiting
for its fulfillment.
Romans 8: 19, 24-25*
Did you catch it? ALL of creation is waiting for us to just be who we are … God’s glorious sons and daughters unveiled. Each of us is unique in order to hold and display unique facets of the Creator of All. Our “job” is connection with the One who can fill us with what we are made to be! When we do that, heaven can literally dwell on earth because we are His temple (1 Corinthians 3:16). For the glory of the Lord to cover the earth … it needs to be unveiled in you and me (Habakkuk 2:14; Isaiah 60:2).
Now there’s a reason to hope!
