Why are we so hard on ourselves? Why do we feel like everything in life has to be perfect all the time? To show others that our life is perfect? To show them that we aren’t actually a hot mess and half the time we are running around like chickens with our heads cut off?
Do we not realize that life will never be perfect? So if life will never be perfect, neither will we.
This is why it is so important that we continue to align our hearts up with our Creator who IS perfect and can turn anything bad around and make it good. Our Creator who can calm our anxious hearts.
I want you guys to examine this picture below for 1 minute.
You may recognize this image because it is from the movie “The Shack.” There were so many metaphors in this movie that were symbolic to US as humans.
The lady in this picture is playing the role of the Holy Spirit and she asks Mac the guy behind her what this looks like to him. Mac replies with “a mess.”
She comes back with yes. This is a representation of you. You are a beautiful mess and you have to be tended to and watered for you to continue to grow.
Well this is US guys! We are a beautiful mess! A beautiful mess is not a bad thing! It’s what makes us who we are.
This is why we need Jesus so much. We need God to water us and help us grow in life. We will never be the people we were created to be without God at our center.
I want you to find beauty in your imperfections. God will work on those imperfections with you.
Run into His open arms and ask for Him to help you grow into what He wants you to be!
