Perfect is Pretend

Posted by Lori Merrill on 09/23/2019

Perfect pictures to reveal perfect people—the perfect spouse in a perfect marriage living in a perfect house with the perfect children and having perfect friendships along with the perfect dog...all this perfection just isn’t real.

And when you see a snippet of a moment in a person’s life, don’t for a minute let the enemy make you believe everyone BUT YOU has the perfect life. 

PERFECTION JUST ISN’T REAL in this world. We only have One who is perfect. And because we can’t attain perfection EVER...then we needed a Savior. So God sent His Son, Jesus, to be that for us. We can, through the power of the Holy Spirit live a life displaying godliness, but we must always remember that godliness is given (by God) and perfect is pretend. In fact, people are drawn to God more by knowing that we can’t and don’t do it without Him. It is His power through us that attracts others to us. 

So, for you and me today, friend. Let’s stamp out our need to appear perfect and instead be willing to admit that it only because of God’s power within us and because of His grace to us that anyone might see any good in us!!!

“for all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God,” Romans‬ ‭3:23‬

“Based on the gift each one has received, use it to serve others, as good managers of the varied grace of God.”
‭‭1 Peter‬ ‭4:10‬

If you would like us to pray with you leave us a comment or emoji below. Together let’s throw down perfection and instead point to Christ within us. Blessings & love,

Lori Merrill
