Both my greatest and weakest attributes are wrapped into one.  Being the first-born daughter of a perfectionist, I have a root within that strives for perfection.  Unfortunately, time doesn’t always allow for perfectionism and it can be tiresome always having an inner battle to win.  I am reminded that I am perfectly loved; therefore, I don’t need to exhaust myself trying because He has already made my way perfect.

Perfectly Loved

“There is no fear in love.  But perfect love drives out fear” (1John 4:18)

Knowing that ‘God has armed me with strength and makes my way perfect’ (Psalm 18:32) creates a beautiful inner peace.  It means I don’t have to rely on my strength to reach my desires.  I find when I am struggling to get things done, it is on my own strength.  When I am aligned with God and leaning on Him, it is so much easier!

As a mother, a wife, daughter, sister, friend etc., at times I feel guilty for not only making time for my needs; but also, the needs of others.  As such, I used to put a lot of pressure on myself to reach my high standards.  I have since learned I don’t need to carry that weight.

I am reminded of His perfect love in both the big and small areas of my life.  When faced with life changing goals or in day-to-day tasks, I need to remember I am not in this alone and His way is always best!  He carries me through to see even the smallest details come to pass.

 “By the grace of God, I am what I am.” (Corinthians 15:10)

Perfectly made.  Perfectly imperfect.  And perfectly loved.

“She didn’t have to be perfect because she was…perfectly loved.”
