Life can be very hard and confusing. It often seems that when you take one step forward, you wind up taking five steps backwards, doesnât it? Itâs okay, and youâre okay. In fact, youâre more than okay. Youâre perfect just the way you are because God loves you. That makes you perfect, and strong, and beautiful.
I know itâs hard to believe this at times. You probably wonder how God could love someone who makes as many mistakes, who falls short on their faith, who sins as much as you do. How could someone like you be perfect?
Godâs love, and only Godâs love makes us perfect.
The reason this fact is sometimes hard to understand and believe is because we think in terms of the worldâs definition of a perfect personâsomeone who never makes mistakes. Based on this definition, itâs no wonder we so often feel we donât measure up.
But the reality is that thereâs only one perfect beingâGod. It is only through him and his love that we are made perfect. Since no one else in the world is perfect, does it make sense for us to try to be perfect in the worldâs eyes?
The next time youâre feeling anxious and disappointed in yourself, just remember, even in your anxiety and disappointment, God loves you just the way you are.
