I was thinking this morning of perfection and how unattainable that goal is within our lifetime.
I had started to rattle things off in my mind that I knew I had done yesterday, that ultimately, went against God…
Partaking in gossip…Realising I was still living under the “law” in an area of my life…Allowing frustration to build in another area…Thinking of lack in another area of my life…
Oh my goodness!!! But, at least you get the point.
There are days when I feel like I could conquer the world, and days, when I definitely feel a fraud – people assume that I have it all together, but in truth, I’m just as bad as the next person!
I realised a long time ago that when I take my focus off God – it’s easy to lose sight of what’s really important.
So the main thing, is that I’m trying to live how God wants me to, on a daily basis, and then the next day, I pick myself up, dust myself off, and start again – by admitting that I was wrong and not living in fear, because I know my true identity, as a Child of God.
I’m not perfect, but I don’t try to be. I know that I need Jesus…desperately…every day, and so, like this morning, I admit that I have wronged Him, and then I run back to His loving embrace.
