Perfection is an Impossible Taskmaster

I’ve broken up with perfection.

I used to look in the mirror and wish.
I wished I was thinner.
I wished I was younger.
I wished I was smarter.
I wished I made more money.
I wished I hadn’t made so many mistakes.

I compared my real life to a snapshots of others.
I compared my dress size, my paycheck,
my presentation skills, my kids, and
my to-do list to other women.

And I couldn’t measure up.

Then I had a revelation!

I talk about how I had to learn to trust God with what I could not compete with or compete with on my own.

Take a look at this short video. (run time 2.5 minutes)

Does any of that resonate with you?
Know you are precious in God’s sight.

Lord, God, remind me that you are all I need and that I am worthy and beautiful and precious in your eyes. You alone see me as I am and love me unconditionally. Amen

God says to you, “I am the Creator and you are my creation. I breathed into your nostrils the breath of life (Genesis 2:7). I created you in my own image (Genesis 1:27). My eyes saw your unformed substance (Psalm 139:16). I knit you together in your mother’s womb (Psalm 139:13). I know the number of hairs on your head, and before a word is on your tongue I know it (Matthew 10:30; Psalm 139:4). You are fearfully and wonderfully made” (Psalm 139:14).  https://www.desiringgod.org/
