You are a blessed child of God! Stop and let the truth of that truth sink in for just a moment. We spend so much of the energy of our lives trying to prove ourselves, when we really have nothing to prove. We buy into the definition of success provided by the world, allow our egos to start calling the shots and before we know it, we find ourselves riding a runaway roller coaster to nowhere.
We convince ourselves that some how our being incomplete points to some kind of deficiency or lack on our part and there surely must be something wrong with us that needs fixing. We read books, take medicine, chase after goals and do any and everything we can think of to try and make up for what we have been convinced is missing.
We very quickly lose site of the reality that we are children of God and because we are God’s children we lack nothing. We lack nothing, because it is all His and through His love, we have access to it all. You are a complete, whole and blessed spiritual being, made in the image of the One who created you and empowered with His supernatural power.
“Consider it all joy, my brethren, when you encounter various trials, knowing that the testing of your faith produces endurance. And let endurance have its perfect result, so that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing.” -James 1:2-4
You do not need to be made perfect, you are perfect. You just need to learn to live in the perfection you were created in and for. You cannot add to God’s perfection, and any attempt to do so, is to take away, taint and diminish the purity of God’s radiant love. So stop trying to be something you are not, accept your life as it is with all it’s challenges and grow through them into the complete perfection you were created for. When you do this your life will give glory to God and enable you to experience and share His blessings…
