PERFECT IS NOT MY REALITY, ANYMORE!

06 May

.Perfect is not my reality, it use to be but I’ve grown, and now my sight is set on success. As odd as this may sound, success is easier to obtain than perfection.

It took a long time for me to realize I would never be perfect. The harder I tried the more flaws I found; the cause was a never-ending task, but I knew success could be achieved because it is an obtainable goal, with good work ethics and perseverance we can get there.

The greater the emphasis on perfection, the further it recedes.”   Haridas Chaudhurl

I understand some of us will never believe we may not be all that, still to be perfect is to be without any flaws, defects, or shortcomings, accurate, exact, or correct in every detail. Who can really claim this, but Christ?  If you believe it is you, then more power to you.

I don’t compare myself to Christ. But I do believe it is better to do something imperfectly than nothing flawlessly.  “Perfectionism is the enemy of creation, as extreme self-solitude is the enemy of well-being.”   John Updike

God is the only one I know of who is perfect in every way, and although I will never be as He, the more Christ like-minded I became, the more tasks I was able to complete, with little error. I was told the very perfection of man is to find his own imperfections. At least knowing our capabilities will allow us to know how far we can go with what we have.

“He is the Rock, his work is perfect: for all his ways are judgment: a God of truth and without iniquity, just and right is he.”   Deuteronomy 32:4

I know as well as you that I am not that rock, nor am I perfect.  I can hardly drive down the street without screaming out curse words about some human blunder; after all, I may be the only one on earth that is perfect. I don’t believe that about myself, but there are some who believe the world is stupid, all except for themselves.

We say all types of things, giving reason to make ourselves exempt. Nothing is our fault; we are so perfect, even when we create a wrong, we refuse to see ourselves as being imperfect.

If only they had done this or that is our excuse. Now some like to twist words in their favor, for fear of looking foolish, because some of us are smart enough to not proclaim we are perfect; we are simply flawless.

What a bunch of crap. Our self-centered attitude can cause some of us with a snap of the finger to look down on the mistakes of others with perfect eyes. I know I have done this myself, and on more than one occasion.

For us to be flawless, we must not have defects or faults of any kind, even in our opinion of others or coupled with a bad attitude. Especially one that diminishes the value of something perfect; if you touch or tamper with that perfect thing, it is no longer perfect. It has your fingerprints, DNA, dirt, whatever on it, it’s now flawed.

I know that is taking things to a stretch, but you get the point. If I were perfect, I would know how to live and balance a perfect life in my so-called perfect world.

“Dost thou know the balancing of the clouds, the wondrous works of him, which is perfect in knowledge?”    Job 37:16

Back in the day, I would admit to not being perfect, even today I own up to it. But I will have to admit, I added, “but I am close enough.”  That type of thinking has the tendency to embarrass me from time to time. Arguing a point I am certain of but wrong, wrong, wrong. Commonly labeled as, “I didn’t know what I was talking about in the first place.”

So sure of myself, checking the facts was considered a complete waste of time, causing me to realize if I was so perfect, how come I got that wrong, and why would I need to do research? It’s only common sense, to ask those types of questions, in my mind.

Jesus said: “If you want to be perfect, go, sell your possessions and give to the poor, and you will have treasure in heaven: Then come, follow me.”   Matthew 19:21

What do you want me to say: Matthew 19:21 doesn’t have a single word in it I do not understand. What about you?

We can have success with flaws, and be nowhere close to perfection. We always have a choice; an out, get a relationship with Christ. The world will not forgive us for our transgressions, mistakes, our sins, perfectly flawless or not, but Jesus will; leaving room for all that understand we can be the best we can be, thru Christ.

“There are no perfect men in this world, only perfect intentions.”  Pen Densham  (Robin Hood)

FYI:  Stay cautious of those who claim to be perfect, for they are of the devil, and mean no one any good. Their veiled, covered perfectionism usually stems from the lawless way business in done. We all know these people, and some of them are us. Christ is not confused about who we are, we are.

“They talk about hiding their snares, they say,  “Who will see it?”  They plant injustice and say, “We have devised a perfect plan!”  Surely the human mind and heart are cunning.”    Psalms 64:5

Get right with Christ. Praise God, from whom all blessings flow, for the Lord knows we are weak, regardless of our so-called strengths; with Him, we can fight off the wiles of the cunning and downright devilish. Please try to understand; we can’t do anything if we don’t join or belong to the Body of Christ. God wants to take care of us.

“My grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness.”   2nd Corinthians 12:9

For us to know ourselves, we need to understand, we are only as  “good as we give.”   If we keep our mind on Christ and love for others, we may receive some type of perfection. I wouldn’t mind the perfect love of  Christ, forever and ever.

I read my own blogs over and over, before, during and after posting, and I always can find something wrong. Never have I written the perfect post. At some point, I have to stop, and it’s when I know I have given the best I have, hoping it will, but realizing it may not be perfect, I tried.

Now there are those who can write a perfect post, all the I’s are dotted, the T’s are crossed, with perfect spelling; maybe this is all they can do, that is perfect. I look words up and still misspelled them, so sometimes it maybe my typing, but still, my imperfection. (Fault)  Some can do it; just not me, and I can respect that fact.   I have finally realized I can live with my imperfections and not be ashamed of me

We all have our own set of unique skills, and some of them are flawed. What a blow to some of our ego’s. When I gave up on being perfect, I found strength in Christ.

Being strong means rejoicing in who you are complete with imperfections.”   Margaret Woodhouse.  Accepting flaws in our character can sometimes bring other things, full circle.

“Being happy doesn’t mean everything’s perfect, it means you’ve decided to see beyond the imperfections.”   Unknown.

Perfect is Not my Reality, Success is!  Whatever, as far as I am concerned the bottom line is;

“It is what it is, and Thy Will be done.”   Let’s go tell that so we can be one step closer to perfection.

    I’m not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with web browser compatibility but
