You didn’t do it and it’s not your fault BUT your comment, your post, your success, your decision, your words – they made me feel inadequate and not perfect.
I know I’m NOT but I don’t like being reminded. Wikipedia says that perfectionism has its good and its bad. Perfectionism can motivate us BUT in this situation I started drifting off into that depressive idea that “I’m not good enough and I never will be!”
And then He spoke up and reminded me, “You don’t have to be perfect my child.”
“Do you not remember just this morning when you told your own son that he need not fret or worry but to do just do his best and that’s what matters?”
“Do your best my child! That’s all that matters.”
“You matter to me and that matters MOST!”
My momentary depression has ended. I will move on. I will hold my head high. I did my best and He loves me.
What more could I ask for?
“But he said to me, `My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness.’ Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ’s power may rest on me”― 2 Corinthians 12:9
