Day 1: Perfectly Imperfect
31 Days has October.
31 Days of LIVING UNLEASHED.
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.
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
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
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~
Oh THE DIGNITY of FAVOR~
“Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in paradise.”*
Oh THE LAUGHTER of FREEDOM~
"JESUS called out with a loud voice, 'Father, into your hands I commit my spirit'.”*(Luke 23)
The final words that sealed the deal
that sealed the tomb~
“It is finished" (John 19:30)
Was JESUS laughing?
Oh I believe HE was
HE did what HE was born to do
and HE completed the task
My friends, it doesn't get more PERFECT than this.
Amen! Amen! Amen!
JESUS is the definition of PERFECT.
And all we have to do is wear
HIS PERFECTION that makes us
So how PERFECT are you?
Let's walk daily through the
days of November by
with our new devotional series
PUTTING INTO PRACTICE
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
