Perfection To No Place
I’ve always been a B student in English, and I claimed it( don’t judge me ). That has been my mantra, and I seemed to shout it from the mountain top. I remember clearly writing papers from high school to college and always getting a B. Remember; I said I’m a B student in English.
So fast-forward to the current day, now I am a Blogger. That mantra has come to haunt me. You’re just a B writer; this isn’t your expertise. Well, in all my wisdom, I signed up for writing classes got books you name it( did you start singing greens, beans you name it… Or just me). So that I could be perfect for you all at writing these blogs and this devotional I am still laboring on.
The problem is that even though perfection is the goal. The notion that we have to be perfect out the door is a tactic of our fears to delay us. This search for perfection before starting leads to a neverending cycle of delays that never end. Yes, I know mediocrity is not acceptable, and I talked about that a few weeks ago, but Sis all that means is we have to put in the work.
Listen, the same God that created heaven and Earth in 6 days is the same God who created you. Plus, the bonus is He created you and me in His likeness and image! So you know we got this! The problem is we are placing our faith in the wrong thing or person. Come on, let’s not allow our desire for perfection leads us to No Place At All. So remember this-
When we trust in God and not rely on our strength, He demonstrates His greatness.
“But he answered me, “My grace is always more than enough for you, and my power finds its full expression through your weakness.” So I will celebrate my weaknesses, for when I’m weak, I sense more deeply the mighty power of Christ living in me.”2 Corinthians 12:9 TPT
We serve a God who holds the world in his hands. Surely He can solidify your movement.
“For I know the plans and thoughts that I have for you,’ says the LORD, ‘plans for peace and well-being and not for disaster, to give you a future and a hope.”Jeremiah 29:11 AMP
Well, Sis, I am no longer looking for perfection, but I am walking in Excellence, giving my BEST, executing my Goals, and Showing Up every day! So what are you going to do?
