I never realized how okay it was to be myself. I never knew it was okay to be imperfect. I’ve always measured myself against others, a feat that only brought me despair and sadness. I am not perfect. And finally I have come to accept that and be at peace with it. But here’s why…C H R I S T. In the eyes of the Lord I am equal to all others. Even those I hold in higher regard, even those I envy, and yes, even those I despise. We are equal you see, because in the Lord’s eyes we are all sinners. And what better way to be flawed than perfectly flawed? How am I perfectly flawed you may ask? Because just as I am equal to all others, I am also offered the same redemption and forgiveness. My sins are forgiven, washed away, just as yours.
So if you ever wondered how to fit in in a perfect world, stop now. Because you nor I will ever be perfect. No one will ever be flawless. Except he who can redeem us all. So go about your merry way, flawed to the ends of all you do, our father will always be there, waiting to redeem you.
Be completely humble and gentle; be patient, bearing with one another in love. Ephesians 4:2
How foolish can you be? After starting your Christian lives in the Spirit, why are you now trying to become perfect by your own human effort? Galations 3:3 (New Living Translation)
For the law never made anything perfect. But now we have confidence in a better hope, through which we draw near to God. Hebrews 7:19 (New Living Translation)
For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves; it is God’s gift— not from works, so that no one can boast. Ephesians 2:8-9
For all have sinned and fall short of the glory of God. Romans 3:23
