12 Bible Verses To Remind Yourself "You Are Enough"
Katherine Henson

I want to start throwing parades for people. I want marching bands in their honor, their name in fireworks and uncontrollable confetti in their honor. I want to start recognizing the people who love without conditions and open their arms without questions. I want days dedicated to loving them.

Why?

Because people like this are a rare bread.

We all want to love and we all want to be selfless, but those that actually do are few and far between. So I want to call out those brave hearts that really do show up. I want to call out their hearts and I want to call our their love. I want the world to see just what it really means to love someone in this harsh world of ours. I want to start throwing parades for people.

I also want to call out you - I want you to feel your own worth. I want you to selflessly love yourself, and I want you to open your arms to yourself with no questions asked. I want you to be able to tell your self you are enough, and I want you to believe it when you do. Can you do that for me? Can you do that for yourself?

1. 2 Corinthians 12:9-10

"And He has said to me, 'My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness.' Most gladly, therefore, I will rather boast about my weaknesses, so that the power of Christ may dwell in me. Therefore I am well content with weaknesses, with insults, with distresses, with persecutions, with difficulties, for Christ's sake; for when I am weak, then I am strong."

2. Isaiah 49:16

"Though she may forget, I will not forget you! See, I have engraved you on the palms of my hands; your walls are ever before me."

3. Romans 8:1

“There is therefore now no condemnation for those who are in Christ Jesus.”

4. Psalm 138:8

“The Lord will fulfill his purpose for me; your steadfast love, O LORD, endures forever. Do not forsake the work of your hands.”

5. I Corinthians 6:20

“For you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body.”

6. Ephesians 1:6

“To the praise of his glorious grace, with which he has blessed us in the Beloved.”

7. Romans 8:16-17

“The Spirit himself bears witness with our spirit that we are children of God, and if children, then heirs–heirs of God and fellow heirs with Christ, provided we suffer with him in order that we may also be glorified with him.”

8. Philippians 1:6

“Being confident of this very thing, that He who has begun a good work in you will complete it until the day of Jesus Christ;”

9. Ephesians 2:4, 6

“But God, being rich in mercy, because of the great love with which he loved us, and raised us up with Him and seated us with Him in the heavenly places of Christ Jesus,”

10. I 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.”

11. Ephesians 2:10

“For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.”

12. Isaiah 43:25

”I, I am he who blots out your transgressions for my own sake, and I will not remember your sins.”

Because self confidence is sexy

And as a woman, I want us all to love ourselves a little bit more today.

143

Women have such high standards to live up to today. We’re expected to do and be so much. The great Tina Fey said “Every girl is expected to have Caucasian blue eyes, full Spanish lips, a classic button nose, hairless Asian skin with a California tan, a Jamaican dance hall ass, long Swedish legs, small Japanese feet, the abs of a lesbian gym owner, the hips of a nine-year-old boy, the arms of Michelle Obama, and doll tits. The person closest to actually achieving this look is Kim Kardashian, who, as we know, was made by Russian scientists to sabotage our athletes." This quote is not only hilarious, but also incredibly true! How many of you feel insecure every time you walk on campus, or every time you walk into a party? Even the girls you think are perfect are insecure. Everyone has flaws. Sure some flaws may be more exaggerated than others, but that doesn’t mean that the girl still feels bad about them. My point here is that it doesn’t matter how “perfect” you are, what matters most is how “perfect” you feel.

With the dawn of social media comes an entirely new character: the Facebook politician. Usually, articles or posts about politics are fairly sporadic. That is until a major event happens. Suddenly, everyone knows everything about everything. Everyone seems to have a very strong opinion. Everyone is super knowledgeable, and what better vessel of information than they themselves? Which is pretty reasonable, given that people’s emotions run high when something major happens. And I don’t blame them, emotions are good!

The NBA playoffs remind me of my basketball journey through time

Syracuse Basketball

I remember that when I was very little, my dad played in an adult basketball league, and I remember cheering him on with everything in me. I also remember going to Tuscola basketball games when the old floor was still there and the bleachers were still wooden. I remember always wanting to play basketball like my dad, and that's just what I did.

In America, we tend to stick up our noses at certain things that aren't the norm. For example, people who are overweight, or the politically correct term “obese." Men and women who are overweight get so much backlash because they are not skinny or "in shape," especially, African-American women, who are typically known for having wider hips and thicker thighs. Robert Darryl, an African-American filmmaker, explains the overall intention of the body mass index in his follow-up sequel, “America the Beautiful 2: The Thin Commandments."
