Imperfect

I am imperfect. Yes that is something that I am always needing to remind myself. I am human, I am imperfect and I make mistakes. I fail, I fall, I say things I shouldn't, I let my pride get in the way, and I'm fearful. Could you imagine what our God would be like if he was imperfect just like me? Sometimes I look at being imperfect as a horrible and awful thing. But then God reminds that if I wasn't imperfect, I wouldn't need His strength, love, guidance, or peace. I wouldn't' need God's help, and I wouldn't need to seek his will for me. Embrace your imperfect nature, and lean on God. Isaiah 26:4 "Trust in the Lord forever, for the Lord God is an everlasting rock." When I say embrace your imperfect nature, I do not mean to love your sinful ways and party it up. I am simply saying that by embracing it you can see how much in need you are of a Savior. A Savior to save your life. A God who will love you just for you, mistakes and all. "It is better to put trust in the Lord than to put confidence in man." Psalm 118:8    By embracing your imperfectness you rely on God's strength and wisdom for your life. We are all fallen and full of sin, but because of our Lord Jesus Christ he gave his life for us so that we could spend eternality with him. "Proverbs 3:5 "Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding."
