Becoming Great Again: Overcoming Feelings of Inadequacy

At times you may feel that you are not adequate enough, that you aren't living up to the standard, that you are not qualified. To be honest with you all, I feel this way at times. I know you all think I am oh so perfect (just kidding), but I am far from it. At work this week, I felt a little inadequate and not qualified, but God says that we are.

Check out what the Bible says through the story of a young man called Daniel.



Scriptural references:

Daneil 1:7-9

The chief official gave them new names: to Daniel, the name Belteshazzar; to Hananiah, Shadrach; to Mishael, Meshach; and to Azariah, Abednego. But Daniel resolved not to defile himself with the royal food and wine, and he asked the chief official for permission not to defile himself this way. Now God had caused the official to show favor and compassion to Daniel

Daniel 1: 17

To these four young men God gave knowledge and understanding of all kinds of literature and learning. And Daniel could understand visions and dreams of all kinds. At the end of the time set by the king to bring them into his service, the chief official presented them to Nebuchadnezzar. The king talked with them, and he found none equal to Daniel, Hananiah, Mishael and Azariah; so they entered the king’s service. In every matter of wisdom and understanding about which the king questioned them, he found them ten times better than all the magicians and enchanters in his whole kingdom.

Act 10:34

And Peter opened his mouth and said: Most certainly and thoroughly I now perceive and understand that God shows no partiality and is no respecter of persons

Philippians 4:13

I have strength for all things in Christ Who empowers me [I am ready for anything and equal to anything through Him Who [a]infuses inner strength into me; I am [b]self-sufficient in Christ’s sufficiency].

1 Peter 2: 9

But you are a chosen race, a royal priesthood, a holy nation, a people for his own possession, that you may proclaim the excellencies of him who called you out of darkness into his marvelous light.

2 Peter 1:3

His divine power has granted to us all things that pertain to life and godliness, through the knowledge of him who called us to[a] his own glory and excellence

Colossians 3:23-24

Whatever you do, work heartily, as for the Lord and not for men, knowing that from the Lord you will receive the inheritance as your reward. You are serving the Lord Christ.

Know that God is madly in love with you and He wants a relationship with you!

XOXO,

Jenn

Fun Facts About Jenn Jenn



As a kid I use to love reading books. I went through a crazy horse obsession for about a year or a year and a half from 8-9 years old. Every book I bought at the school book fairs was about horses. I even had a horse sweater with legit yarn added to it as the horses mane. Lol. 🙈🙈

Not sure where that obsession came from but that died pretty quickly. And thankfully my fashion sense has also greatly improved.

Ok, that's the end of my story. Haha. 🤣
