Letting God Be Enough: Why Striving Keeps You Stuck and How Surrender Sets You Free
Everyone thinks you’ve got it together. But inside, you’re asking, “Am I enough?” No matter how good we look to others, the nagging voice of self-doubt is hard to shake. We ask questions like:
- If people really knew me would they still accept me?
- Will I be rejected when I can’t perform?
- Can I pull this off?
- What if I end up alone?
- Am I missing out on what life should be because I can’t shake this fear?
If you find yourself having thoughts like these, Erica Wiggenhorn wants to lead you to freedom. Drawing from the story of Moses—the greatest self-doubter in the Bible—Erica shows how self-doubt is tied closely to self-reliance. It’s only when you cast yourself on God that you find the true source of strength. Are you enough? The answer is no . . . but your God certainly is. Step out in His power instead of your own and watch your confidence blossom because you’re in the hands of I AM.

About the book Letting God Be Enough
Do you feel like you’re missing out on some secret other women know? Do you wonder why her faith seems so strong? Are you curious about how she finds success around every corner, or her marriage seems so happy? Do you wonder how she’s such a good mother?
It’s easy to feel like things fall into place so easily for others while you’re striving hard to keep life from falling apart. In a world where “never enough” is the norm, what do you do with those feelings of inadequacy? Do you strive more or expect less? And how does God fit into the equation?
We aren’t the first people to deal with feelings of inadequacy, insecurity, or impostor syndrome. The life of Moses was plagued by self-doubt, fear, and comparison to others. Yet, God repeatedly worked miracles through Moses’ weaknesses.
