6 Verses For When You Feel Not Good Enough

Hello dear friend. I was just thinking about you. How are you doing today?

I am struggling a bit with feeling like I am not good enough, I do not matter. Yes, I deal with depression and negative talk quite a bit.

Do you ever feel this way?

Have you ever been told that you are worthless? Have you been told that you were not wanted?

I have. It is not easy to think about, but I know that the self doubt I deal with stems from that. Oh, and of course, satan is doing his part to stir things up as well.

I am at the point that I could use a shoulder to lean on right now while I cry.

6 Verses For When You Feel Not Good Enough

I thought that I would share some of my favorite verses with you. These verses are perfect for when you feel down, worthless, etc. Remember (I am telling myself this as well) you do matter, you are important, and you are loved.

John 15:5 CEV I am the vine, you are the branches. If you stay joined to me, and I stay joined to you, then you will produce lots of fruit. But you cannot do anything without me.

John 15:16 NIV You did not choose me, but I chose you and appointed you so that you might go and bear fruit --fruit that will last -- and so that whatever you ask in my name the Father will give you.

2 Corinthians 12:9 NIV But He said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness. Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.

Philippians 4:13 NIV I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.

1 Timothy 1:12 NIV I thank Christ Jesus our Lord, who has given me strength, that He considered me trustworthy, appointing me to His service.

2 Timothy 4:17 NIV But the Lord stood at my side and gave me strength, so that through me the message might be fully proclaimed and all the Gentiles might hear it. And I was delivered from the lion's mouth.
