The adversary whispers, “You’re weak. You’ll never get it right. God couldn’t love someone like you. All the bad things that happened are punishment because you’re evil, unworthy, worthless. Stop trying so hard. You’ll never be enough.”
Truths:

*I am a sinner but not worthless. Jesus died to prove how much He loved me before I was born.
*God sees my effort as good and offers to help me. Why would I give up the opportunity to see God bridge the distance I cannot?
*True, I’ll never be enough, without Jesus. But God…
