Perfection Not Necessary
So, you know you don’t have to be perfect right? You don’t have to be supermom, or superstar or anything like that. All you have to be is you, all wrapped up in God’s love and wrapped so tightly in His grace and stamped with His mercy that you couldn’t bear to be without! Oh He’s got your story, your life and your imperfection and He knows just who you are and how you think. He understands your feelings and your thoughts so well, yeah, even so much better than you do.
So hey you! Relax and rest in His ever-loving favor and tender mercies. They’re new each morning you know. And find the beauty in your moments of imperfection and mistakes and failures. They’re not all that bad and they’re not all wrong, not all the time. And what is, can be forgiven and will be forgiven if we give it over and move on forgetting what is behind.to press on to higher heights. So you see, beautiful soul, imperfections or not, you are beautiful just as you are. Don’t ever doubt it!
“Not that I have already obtained all this, or have already been perfected, but I press on to take hold of that for which Christ Jesus took hold of me. Brothers, I do not consider myself yet to have laid hold of it. But one thing I do: Forgetting what is behind and straining toward what is ahead, I press on toward the goal to win the prize of God’s heavenly calling in Christ Jesus.…”
“Great is His faithfulness; His mercies begin afresh each morning. … they are new every morning; great is Your faithfulness. … ”
Lamentations 3: 23
