“Letting God be Enough” by Erica Wiggenhorn
Erica’s own testimony:
“For years I tried to be the superhero Christian woman. You know- put together, well-behaved kids, faithful volunteer, always dependable. I strove to meet every need, make everybody happy, and keep up the image of doing it all in the joy of Jesus. But, inside I was exhausted. And I did it out of fear not love. I worried that if I dropped my superhero cape, people would reject me. Maybe even God would be disappointed in me. So, I kept up the pace of frenetic performance. Still I felt judged, rejected, diminished, not enough. But then I found freedom from all this and more by letting God be enough.”
