Day 1: Perfectly Imperfect


31 Days has October.

31 Days of LIVING UNLEASHED.

Now what?

What happens when you know what you know yet now you have to

PUT IT INTO PRACTICE.

You know what I am talking about.

You say the words~

FORGIVE & Forget.

GOD LOVES me.

Do not FEAR.

LOVE everyone as you LOVE yourself.

Let go and let GOD.

BELIEVE.

RECEIVE JESUS.

PRAY.

And the list goes on.

Words are just words unless you PUT them into PRACTICE.

Yet oh how I fail at times

because I can't do it PERFECTLY.

As I disagree with the saying PRACTICE makes PERFECT

because PERFECT is unattainable

because in this world you can always be better

and do better

PERFECT defined~

Unblemished

Undamaged

Flawless.

Hmm.

Should I add UNATTAINABLE

by you & me & everyone else

no matter how PERFECT we try

Because once you think you achieve PERFECT

you realize that it can be better and you can be better

so you start again.

PRACTICE does not make PERFECT.

We need PERFECT to make us

UNBLEMISHED

UNDAMAGED

FLAWLESS.

And there HE WAS.

On a CROSS. Looking quite IMPERFECT

with HIS broken limbs and nails holding HIM to the cross

as HE cried out~

“FATHER, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.”*

Oh THE STRENGTH of FORGIVENESS~

PERFECT!

Oh THE DIGNITY of FAVOR~

“Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”*

PERFECT!

Oh THE LAUGHTER of FREEDOM~

"JESUS called out with a loud voice, 'Father, into your hands I commit my spirit'.”*(Luke 23)

PERFECT.

The final words that sealed the deal

that sealed the tomb~

“It is finished" (John 19:30)

PERFECT.

Was JESUS laughing?

Oh I believe HE was

because

HE did what HE was born to do

and HE completed the task

PERFECTLY!

My friends, it doesn't get more PERFECT than this.

PERFECT crucifixion.

PERFECT burial.

PERFECT RESURRECTION!

Amen! Amen! Amen!

JESUS is the definition of PERFECT.

And all we have to do is wear

HIS PERFECTION that makes us

UNBLEMISHED

UNDAMAGED

FLAWLESS.

So how PERFECT are you?

Let's walk daily through the

days of November by

WEARING PERFECT

with our new devotional series

"PERFECTLY IMPERFECT"

by

PUTTING INTO PRACTICE

the WORD

just as PAUL who said~

"CHRIST JESUS came into the world to save sinners—of whom I am the worst" (I Timothy 1:15)

who was beyond IMPERFECT

And penned the WORDS~

"Whatever you have learned or received or heard from me, or seen in me—put it into practice. And the GOD of peace will be with you" (Philippians 4:9)

Because if JESUS can transform Saul to Paul

HE can make you & me & everyone else

"FLAWLESS" (listen to the song below)
