Why you should Embrace your Imperfections!
Do you ever wish you were faster, smarter, richer.... just better? Sometimes I think if I had the brain of doctor I would not have to take the long haul around, but then again I might not develop internally if I didn’t proceed on my journey.
Trying to be perfect makes me tired.
And sometimes my imperfections make other people tired!
I'll never be the fastest, the smartest, or the richest. If I plan on that, I'll die trying.
Maybe for a short minute we should stop looking at others, and stop trying for perfection all the time, and just FOCUS on Him...the author of perfection.
Stop trying to measure up and know that most of the time, your imperfections may turn out to be your greatest strength.
Therefore I take pleasure in infirmities, in reproaches, in necessities, in persecutions, in distresses for Christ's sake: for when I am weak, then am I strong.” – 2 Corinthians 12:10 KJV
Those that claim to have it all together just may not at all. They may just be giving you lip service
No one is perfect. The woman with her lipstick perfectly applied with her hands folded nicely in her lap every Sunday, and her Bible opened; especially her.
Let's hit the bull straight in the eye. If your heart is not in it, you can read the Bible all you want but your imperfections will get the best of you.
Public speaking used to terrify me, as it does most people! The truth is, all fear aside, I excel in public speaking and I believe God can use me in this area. Here is where the devil will try his best to distract me, to cause me to lose my focus.
I make mistakes every day and I am I do vow, however, to keep striving higher.
However, if you come to know God you will see how God can and does use our imperfections, our brokenness to help others.
It's all a part of the plan.
Change your perspective. Don’t get beat down by mistakes.
Pay special attention to your imperfections and how they can help others.
Ask yourself. How can my experience with this help others?
As long as we can admit our wrong we can repent and become stronger.
It is when we become prideful we become resistant to change and move away from our destiny.
As for me, I will keep putting one foot in front of the other, and allow myself to trip every now and then. After all I am a klutz. But by golly I’m a good one!
