Perfectionism. . . LAME!!!
Posted On: 04/29/2012 Current Mood: cheerful
For the past month, every single verse I read about how to live, I'd been trying to apply to my life. Key word: I'd. I was becoming a perfectionist. I was so insecure with my walk with the Lord that it'd been taking a HUGE toll on me. But the worst part is that I was so wrapped up in keeping my wittness that I was keeping it from all those who loves me. Then our wonderful administrator Tomm brought some things to my attention. I suddenly in my pitiful mess stopped acting like a vitim. Boo-hoo I tried and failed. Those issues are so much smaller than I made them. That huge giant before me had just turned into a mouse. That's what God does. He hears your crys. He see's your pain. He let's you endure until you about break. That's when he steps in and brings everything into perspective. He raises you up. Strengthens you and shows you what and who you are in him.
Guess what people, I'm NOT perfect. I DON'T have all the answers and sometimes I can be slightly insecure. What I write is what the Lord has been laying on my heart and I share it with you. You may not agree with everything I say. OH WELL! That's okay. I love you anyway. ^_^ See here's the beauty of all this. I walk in grace. I don't walk to please others. I don't walk because I'm told to. I don't walk because a book tells me too. I walk because I am adopted royalty. I wasn't born into the Lord's Kingdom. He adopted me and loved me! I didn't deserve his Mercy, quite frankly neither have you. That's okay though because it was his LOVE that brought you and I to where we are now.
This world is crap. It hurts. Life hurts. Things around us don't always reflect what God is doing. It's not supposed to. See when things go wrong and hurt and you try and try and try and try and fail and fail and fail and fail, then you know it's time to just stop. Stop crying. Stop worrying. Stop being afraid. Take a deep breath and look deeper than the issues. Get on your knees and pray. Take up your armor (spiritually) and fight. Rely on God's discernment and MAKE the enemy leave you alone. Stop feeding into all the darkness. See here's the truth. You ready?
Satan isn't going to come out and surrender.
He's not going to walk away because you pray.
He isn't stupid.
If he can make you believe that you are less than what you are, he will.
He doesn't want you to know that you have Authority over him.
He doesn't want you to know the power you have to make him leave.
That power was GIVEN to you by the Lord. USE IT!!!!
Humans don't naturally beat themselves or others up. So what's behind it? BINGO! The enemy. Therefore, stop beating yourself up in self-righteous perfectionism. And start beating up who's really behind all your torment. Why do you care what other's will say? Who are they?
You are ROYALTY. Prince/Princess. Dude you got s.w.a.g.! You're so loved and adored by your father.
Matthew 5:48 (NKJV) "Therefore you shall be perfect, just as your father in heaven is perfect."
The word "perfect" in this verse actually translates different in Hebrew. The Hebrew word for it is "mature" so take out "perfect" and place "mature" now you see how much more obtainable that is? You make mistakes when you are mature you just learn from them. =)
(The verse Tomm gave me.)
John 14:27 (NKJV) "Peace I leave with you, My peace I give you; not as the world gives do I give to you. Let not your heart be troubled, neither let it be afraid."
That verse basically concludes this blog entry perfectly. God Bless You!!! Remeber feedback is mucho appreciated! Love you all!
