Day 22: Perfect

The hard TRUTH is that

I will fail you.

Now that is hard to say coming from a recovered PERFECTIONIST.

I have failed my husband.

I have failed my children.

I have failed my friends.

So does that make me a failure?

Oh you would think,

because aren't I supposed to be PERFECT

because I follow a PERFECT JESUS?

Oh because I fail is why I follow a PERFECT JESUS.

Does that mean that I have permission to fail others?

Oh no.

But as long as I am in this body

my flesh only knows how to fail


"Even youths grow tired and weary,

and young men stumble and fall..."*

And that is why we have to HOPE~

"...but those who hope in the LORD

will renew their strength.

They will soar on wings like eagles;

they will run and not grow weary,

they will walk and not be faint"* (Isaiah 40:31)

Oh to soar above our failures

when we fail others and even ourselves

when we aren't even trying~

"What a wretched man I am! Who will rescue me from this body that is subject to death? Thanks be to GOD, who delivers me through JESUS our LORD!" (Romans 7: 24-25).

Oh the taste of


that washes the slate clean

that is so overwhelming

that is so undeserving

that it is hard to believe

when you look at yourself

with your own eyes

or through the eyes of another

that confirms that you are capable of failing

even when you try the hardest



as that is just who HE IS

for you & me & everyone else

who don't deserve it

who can't earn it~

as it is FREE to all who BELIEVE.

So will you bask in HIS LOVE

that is so






that it covers every


past, present & future


that is why we all need


because we all need

"PEFECT LOVE' (listen to the song below)
