Do you seek perfection? In your home, your family, your friends, your life? If that question were posed to me I would emphatically say, no. I am not a perfectionist...I am a get er done kind of girl.
But life has been showing me lately that I do...seek perfection. And when people fail to live up to my expectations I am disappointed and sad and hurt and even angry.
My devotion from this morning said this, "Remember that you live in a fallen world: an abnormal world tainted by sin. Much frustration and failure result from your seeking perfection in this life. There is nothing perfect in this world except Me...Most people seek fulfillment in other people and earthly pleasures or achievements. Thus they create idols, before which they bow down. I will have no other gods before Me! Make me the deepest desire of your heart. Let Me fulfill your yearning for perfection." Sarah Young - Jesus Calling
"Take delight in the Lord, and he will give you your heart's desires." Psalm 37:4
Once again I am reminded where my focus should be. What I need to let go of and what I need to cling to and it's not anyone or anything in this world. It is in the only One who ever was and ever will be perfect. Life is a lot easier that way.
