Happy Friday, Team!
I pray you have experienced a wonderful week. If you haven’t, no worries. There’s always next week. In any event, I hope your weekend is blissful.
I am generally a person who believes in herself and others. Therefore, I hold myself to a very high standard and tend to have the same expectation of others.
However, What I have had to give to the Lord repeatedly is just that—expectations that may be realistic for me and unreasonable for others. I could hear God saying to me, “you all fall short.” And guess what? We do—all of us.
When I mess up, you don’t have to point it out to me. I promise you that I am my own worst critic. I bet you say the same thing. However, that’s what we do.
But we also are good at pointing out the mistakes, mishaps, and what we feel are incompetency’s of others. I am certainly not perfect and will not pretend to be.
I get sharp, frustrated, and sometimes challenging. You may not be like me, but you have your issues also.
We live in a world that challenges our sensibilities every day. People expect us to conform to how they want us to act and behave and forget that we are not the same.
Yet, God made each of us as we are and loves the rough edges as much as the smooth ones.
Let me encourage you with this one thing when you don’t get it quite right and want to beat yourself up.
When someone makes you feel that you are not measuring up and you feel rejected or defeated, remember none of us are perfect.
We will not be what everybody wants us to be always. But we must keep on working on ourselves.
We cannot use the “none of us are perfect” as a means of not trying to do better and be better each day. But, if we try, the Holy Spirit will help us. I believe that.
Have a wonderful and glorious weekend! See you on Monday.
