Has something ever caught your eye that was so perfect and you just stood in awe of it? That’s the way I feel about God he is absolutely magnificent in each and every way. When I first started walking with God and reading through the Bible I didn’t know much but I knew that I wanted to change my life for the better. As I would read through the Bible of his commandments and different stories I would feel as though I had my work cut out for me. Every morning I would wake up and tell myself today you were to be absolutely perfect! I would trip up so badly multiple times just before breakfast alone. I would get so angry at myself telling myself,” WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU, YOU CAN’T EVEN MAKE IT A COUPLE HOURS WITHOUT MESSING UP!!!!!” It took months before a chaplain had sat down and explain to me that there’s no way we could be perfect and that I needed to ease up on myself. God is all about forgiveness and isn’t expecting us to walk perfectly when we’re just starting our journey with Him. If I didn’t stop with these high expectations I would actually give up on myself and the Bible. This scripture proves it Romans 3:10 as the scriptures say,” No one is righteous- not even one. Plus when we go through trials and tribulations in life it does not mean that we’re bad people those are all growing experiences for each and every one of us. So next time you’re standing in front of the mirror or self-reflecting about the day you just had just remember that you are God’s creation and he loves you for who you are and who you are going to be. Just remember to have patience, pray, and look to God when you’re not feeling worthy. If you’re having a rough time today or any day and want to feel a little bit better I challenge you to pray about it everyday, every morning, anytime. Please join me in prayer this morning. Heavenly Father, thank you for yet another beautiful day. Thank you for always forgiving us for our sins and trespasses. We know that we all fall short of your glory Lord but we know that you’re there to pick us up when we fall on our face to hold us when we’re feeling sad or lonely. We know that when we make mistakes we can look to you for correction. Thank you for always leading us, guiding us and being our inspiration. In Jesus precious name amen.
