Five Minute Friday: True
Linking up with Lisa Jo Baker for Five Minute Friday. This week's prompt: True.
I know some things to be true:
God's love is unconditional. He loves me exactly as I am.
There is nothing I can do more of, or less of, for Him to love me any more.
I know, all too well, I am far, far, far from being anything near perfect. God alone is perfect.
So then, why do I spend so much of my time, thoughts, energy, and efforts trying for perfection? Regardless of what I am doing at school, at home, with family, with friends, so much of the time I feel "less than." I feel like I'm not doing enough, not doing well enough. That I can do more, do better. The enemy invades my thoughts way too often, and if I'm not careful, those thoughts take over my mind.
But then what I know to be true comes back to me again: all I can do is all I can do; all I can ever be is what God made me. God's love, grace, mercy does not depend upon on me. Not in the least. Thankfully.
And I need to settle that truth more securely in my heart.
