So I had one of those weeks. Nothing turned out as planned. I have to laugh right now at all my failed attempts at that Illusive “perfect day”. And the non-existent “perfect me”!
Somewhere mid-week I realized I had two choices: Option Number 1= Frustration with myself and everyone around me for not dancing to my well-composed music, or Option Number 2= Rest and make the most of each day.
The Clincher for me though was Reading Gen 15, God says to Abraham:
” I AM YOUR SHIELD, AND EXCEEDINGLY GREAT REWARD!”
God is my shield, and for me these days, He shields me from disappointments and this imperfect life
God is my exceedingly great reward, I have everything I need in Him. He gives Himself to me.
I value His acceptance, His grace, His provision, His love and His amazing presence with me
Even though I am not Perfect
Even when “things” are not Perfect
Its really ok
Its really Ok, because He is Perfect and He is my Shield and Exceedingly Great Reward!
