I'm living the dream in my fancy-pants world, and I've got the Instagram feed to prove it.
Who am I kidding? I'm literally holding it together with one more cup of coffee, yesterday's dry shampoo, and a prayer.
So I finally said enough. Enough of me. I'm bidding farewell to chasing emptiness and exchanging it for more of Jesus.
If we agree with Paul in Acts 20:24 that our lives are worth nothing unless we use them for finishing the work of telling others the Good News - where are we in our quest to get busy for Jesus? In our world of hashtags, hair color, and having it all together, chances are we aren't accomplishing much.
Enough of Me is an 8-week Bible study for women focused on what God's Word has to say about the tug-of-war between our flesh and our mission. The study explores the barriers that stand between where we are today and where God wants to use us to finish His work.
Do you have a nagging in your heart for more purpose? Are you right smack dab in the middle of a tug-of-war between your flesh and your mission?
Often we want to live out the purpose and mission God has for us, but we're too distracted, exhausted, and empty. Maybe it's time to say enough to the excuses, anxiety, and interruptions that get in our way. Could it be we're so busy chasing emptiness and playing the people-pleasing game, that we can't find time to live on mission?
It's time to take a deep breath and do some inventory. Let's dig in and see what God's Word has to say about this tug-of-war between our flesh and our mission. Let's figure out ways to quit chasing emptiness and take bold steps of obedience. Let's discover how we can glorify God and steer people to Jesus in our cubicles, at our dinner tables, in our mom-groups, and with people we encounter every day.
What would happen if we said Enough of Me . . . more Jesus.
About the Author

She has been married to her husband Coby for 10 years, and they have a blended family of six children. Priscilla is the Vice President of Marketing for the largest advertising agency in the transportation industry, and she’s been in the marketing and advertising business for 20 years. She serves as the Assistant Leader for the Real Women Ministry at That.Church in Sherwood, Arkansas. She speaks often, both in her professional career at industry conferences and trade shows, and at women s ministry speaking engagements. When Priscilla isn’t at the office working, speaking at Real Women events, or blogging, she is busy cheering on her Arkansas Razorbacks, chaperoning her daughter at her competitive dance events, and laughing way too loud about pretty much anything and everything.
If we believe that God is good, that means we know for sure that we are good, because we were made in the image of God.
Yes, we messed it up with our sin, but Jesus changed everything.
My identity is in Christ, not in the identity of the woman I’m chasing after. God didn’t make us to chase after an identity we’re not. He made us in His image, for His Kingdom, to live out His purpose.
If we know these things for sure, what the heck happened? When did we end up at our kitchen table weeping over hashtags, hair color and having it all together?
It’s time to dig deep, pull ourselves out of the pit of emptiness, and walk in the identity of being made new in the goodness of God.
Are you wedged between who you think you have to be and who you really are? If yes, what are you striving and believing you have to earn, accomplish, complete, or be that is creating brokenness in your identity? Pray through your list individually, and ask God to remove each piece of brokenness from your identity and replace it with the truth of who you are in Him.
