“Even our successes are failures, compared to the perfection of God” ~M
Today I am another year older and I know that I’m not perfect and of course I never will be. Only God can be perfect. Yet I often wonder why I feel so discontented when it comes to my imperfections. Most of us continually strive for success; it is human nature to do so, but we always fall short because we are imperfect people. This can be quite frustrating for those of us who are perfectionists. I must remember this… If I was perfect, the Lord could not improve me; for he is the potter and I am the clay. I must bear in mind all of the things that he has revealed to me through his word, so I don’t end up feeling defeated or discouraged. Here are some verses that always give me the proper perspective. Hope everyone is having a very happy Sunday! 🙂
Romans 3:23 – For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God.
Isaiah 64:8 – And yet, O LORD, you are our Father. We are the clay, and you are the potter. We all are formed by your hand.
Isaiah 41:10 – Don’t be afraid, because I’m with you; don’t be anxious, because I am your God. I keep on strengthening you; I’m truly helping you. I’m surely upholding you with my victorious right hand.”
