I AM DONE WAITING FOR PERFECT

I am done waiting for perfect!  I have been hindered for far too long. I have had moments of going after it, then fear grips me and I retreat feeling ashamed and scared.  NO MORE!

I will speak when you say to speak God.  If I did not hear you perfectly then humbly I admit it.  I will go and sit in your presence and try again. I won’t remain silent, I will not try to suppress your desire to speak through me. I won’t be afraid!

I am done comparing myself to other bloggers.  Waiting for every post to be perfect before I hit publish.  Lord I trust that you will take what I have said and minister to those that read it.

No, I don’t have a perfect life, a perfect head of hair, a perfect marriage or children that are always perfectly behaved.  But I serve a perfect God who is doing something BIG in me!

I am done

I am done

I am done dancing to the beat of your drum afraid that the beat that God has given me is not perfect enough.  

Today I shed the scale of fear clothe in perfection, I stick my head out and I am going after it.

I am going after my purpose with a tenacious grit.  No I am not perfect but the one who has called me is; and as I move in obedience, He is perfecting me!

Have you been waiting for perfect?  How has it hindered you from doing what God has called you to do?

Farmers who wait for perfect weather never plant. If they watch every cloud, they never harvest.  Ecclesiastes 11:4 NLT
