Perfectly Imperfect

rough edges

I have an article featured on Encouragement Café today that I would love for you to read and then come back and share your thoughts in the comment section.

Here is just a small sample of the article:

As a busy wife and mother, I find myself striving for perfection only to be disappointed for falling short. As a closet perfectionist, it is difficult to let go of that preconceived notion. There is no such thing as a perfect wife, mother or Christian. Therefore, we need to accept this fact but be willing to have God refine us – smooth off those rough edges, so we can move closer to Christ’s example…

***Don’t forget to get entered to win the canvas picture of Ephesians 3:20. The winner will be announced on Friday.

  1. Looking upward instead of inward….Thats where I am stuck right now. I’m working on several projects at work and am struggling with wanting praise for my work. I want all praise, glory and honor to be for my Lord and Saviour, but these human emotions can be troublemakers. Without Him I wouldn’t be in the job I have now; which is perfectly suited for me. It’s been a real challenge to sort this out. He has some rough edges to smooth out here.

  2. I viewed myself as being imperfect. I was a single mom, dealing with a rebellious daughter and an “I don’t care” son. I cried many a night because I knew I was not a good mom. My mom and sister would tell me my kids would be juvenile delinquents, in jail, or pregnant, before they were 25 years old.
    Then one day, I heard God ask me to give Him my children, that He would take care of them as a father. I released them to Him that day. There were some rough times, but both of my kids turned into wonderful adults
