Enough: Lent Devotionals



"Then the LORD God formed the man from the dust of the ground. He breathed the breath of life into the man's nostrils, and the man became a living person." (Genesis 2:7)

I am not technology.

I am made from mud

and stardust

and the hot breath of God.

I am not smooth or clean,

I scratch and I break

and there is dirt

under my rough fingernails.

I am not machine –

I am creature.

I dance and weep and sweat

and I love with my awkward body.

I am not perfect.

I make people cry

and I fail

and I fall again and again.

I am human.

A messy, heaving,

broken, coarse, yet

somehow glorious, human.

Gideon Heugh, Tearfund
