Freedom from Perfection

mirrored bridge

I find my thoughts reflecting on the perplexing, non-stop drive for perfection.

It is an epidemic in our society. And, I am a victim of it.

On a daily basis, I do battle with an internal voice that seems to find not-stop pleasure in teasing and taunting me and my imperfections.

I learned a long time ago that God isn’t looking for me to be perfect. That in my weakness He is strong (2 Corinthians 12:9).

Yet, He is teaching me something new.

He is asking me to acknowledge and embrace the imperfections in myself. When I learn to give myself Grace, I gift Grace onto others more freely.

Increasingly, I find that I have the capacity to Love others boldly and without shame, because I am learning to Love myself boldly and without shame.

In letting go and accepting of His gift of Grace for me, I find…

Freedom.

Freedom from striving, from pushing, from rushing, from exhausting myself in my endless quest for perfection.

Freedom to allow myself to Be with the great I Am of the universe. (Psalm 46:10)
