I am imperfect

I am …Perfectly imperfect.

My wish for 2016 is that everyone can fall in love … with themselves. For so many years I struggled to love that one person who I could not get away from – me. We many times hold ourselves and others to standards that nobody can possibly meet. Why can’t they be met? Because we are human, we make mistakes.

When we make mistakes we have a couple of choices – wallow in self-condemnation, or learn from it and move on. And guess what, just because we learn from it, it does not mean we will not make the same mistake again. Why do we do that? Because we are human.

There are things in my personality that drive me nuts about myself. But the funny thing is, what I see as weaknesses others see as strengths and would trade that trait. Likewise I admire in others things that they see as their own weakness. What I have found is many times our gifts are also our curse.

When we begin to understand the fact that we are not perfect, that is when we can grow emotionally and spiritually. This year instead of making a resolution on physical appearance or materialistic things, make a resolution that will feed your soul. Make a resolution for 2016 to love yourself in your imperfect state.

My true belief is that the best way to preach is by our actions and not our words. However, we need some daily inspiration to keep us on our path. We as Christians have a responsibility not to judge others by our words but to show the love of Christ by loving them where they are at on their personal journey in life...and if they never turn their life over to Christ, continue to love them for who they are - after all God does.
