You are enough.
Commercials, schools, and employers can fool you into thinking that you need improvement-- you need to be thinner, you need more extra-curriculars, you're only valuable when you have 1-2 years of related experience or a 4.0 grade point average. But let me tell you you are not insufficient because someone dumped you. You are not defined by your employment. You are enough, my dearest Reader, and "enough" fits well in the right sorts of places.
I am not telling you to stop trying. No, always try, never give up. Reach for the star you want, but do so standing on the right sort of ground. Plant yourself, darling Reader, where people treat you like you are enough. Find friends who accept you. After all, they see you for the person behind the accomplishments and failures. And they will lift you up so you can catch that star you reach for.
What has the world taught you, that you cannot look at yourself in the mirror and be happy about what you see? Has the world to

That we are weak fools.
Claiming our beliefs are lies
While they worship false knowledge and sparsely dressed idols.
They persecute us and slander our names
While they roll in their adulteries and drink the blood of the saints.
They feed off lies and hide in the shadows,
Persecuting us for following the light.
We put up our crosses and hang our signs
While they scream at us to take it down,
Claiming it is offensive.
But when they hang up images of naked idols and scream profanities and practice their dark arts,
And we ask them to take it down, saying it is offensive,
They merely laugh
And wave us away.
They allow the practice of witchcraft
The screaming of profanities
Encourage evil deeds
Lust for blood spill
Spread deception and harmful rumors
And promote acts of impurity.
Yet they refuse to allow Scripture and the church.
They make it illegal to teach the Word to those who need it most
And punish those who try or even mention its name,
''Oh my g-word''This semester, I decided to take Bible History. I was super excited to enter into the class, hoping we would begin each class with a prayer and really dive into a better understanding of the Bible. Well, I was wrong about the prayer since the class couldn't evangelize, I did get a couple neat facts I never knew about the Bible, but otherwise all we did was worksheets, take boring notes, and watch a few videos.More Like This
But the curriculum of the class wasn't what was important, but rather the students. I was surprised that I would frequently enter the class only to hear obscene language and several "Oh my" you know the rest. In addition, I also had a class with a boy who constantly pointed out his Christian background and how important it was to him that he was saved only to hear him throw down "Oh my" you know the rest many times.
It saddens me that such a term has become so mainstream that many Christians spit it out frequently. It appears that many do not give notice to those three litt
