JUDGE ME TO BE IMPERFECT!
Have no fear of perfection, you’ll never reach it. Salvador Dali
I wanted to title this post; Is It Me, but the Grammar Checker keeps giving me the red line. I’ll have to admit, it wasn’t that usual because I am not the greatest when it comes to composing, but I am good at getting my point across as bad as it’s sometimes written. We all have to work in a manner that suits us in order to give our best performance although it may be mediocre to others. What works best for me is to not be interrupted.
When writing Passion is good especially when we think we are on to something and put our best foot forward, but passion can also get us into a lot of trouble. At times when discussing some of my post face to face, I have to ask Jesus to take the wheel.
By the way; Is It I, is correct, I didn’t see that one coming so, I downloaded another app, we’ll see what happens.
I did a pretty good job spelling in school and I use to enter Spelling Bees, but that’s another story, and many years ago. It just proves what we already know; If you don’t use what you have you will lose it. I always attempt to do my best but don’t get me wrong, I don’t want it to go overboard with perfection, I want my readers to understand me; you know, the regular guys.
A friend once told me when they write only a few reader’s respond. I wondered if those readers had a Ph.D. too? I couldn’t understand a word of it myself. Maybe it’s because I only have some college? I don’t believe that I believe Common Sense is more important than any Ph.D.
That’s just my opinion, and just for the record long-winded anything is too much for me, including what I write. Still, I would love to have a PhD., but if I could only have one of the two; Give me the Common Sense.
The Scholars; well some do know everything that’s in their field, and I do care that somebody knows something I don’t, but during the course of the conversation I got off track and started to wonder what happened to that person I call Me? When did she stop correcting, judging and debating vocally?
I don’t think we ever stop, I just think the older we get the better we get, especially if we learned anything from all those lessons life handed us causing us to gain knowledge the hard way; but the more knowledge the better. Bring it on is my motto.
It took a long time but when I stopped playing god and started to Listen to The Elders, (Mom, Dad, and all those with common sense) things changed for the better because of a few well placed Christ-like words (Bible verses). I stopped telling people what to do; I started listening and that alone enabled me to Testify about similar situations and how God‘s Spirit entered my heart and guided me through,This or That.
The I Got It All Together’s have their job, a hard job, and judging others may be a part of it. I have my job; the job of trying to learn something then share. Unfortunately, I don’t Have It All Together, if my friends do maybe I am missing something? Jesus is the only one Perfect, that’s my story and am sticking to it. It Is Written, we all fall short of the Glory of God.
I care about most people’s opinion, but nit-picking and debating over everything are not me anymore. Been there done that too many times. Truthfully I am burnt out on trying to be the Boss of What? Wasting time trying to live up to being Smarter than Who? (Nit-Picking Fault Finders, 5/24/2012 and Some People In High Places 10/23/2012)
My goal is to have a voice that is understood by those of us not so blessed with whatever the flavor of the day is, and the one’s interested. For me, it’s all about offering Something To Think About and praying others don’t do what I did through my posts and book, as they find their way to Christ Jesus, if not already there.

If you don’t know, am talking about being a Witness for Jesus Christ, and the long hard road I took to become that Witness. Flaws and all!
There is always something to learn. Accepting the fact we may be Imperfect is one of them, more like the issue once for me. I think I have something worth saying, flawed with grammar errors or not, because I lived it, and there is little about it that was Perfect. My sharing may help someone else know they are not alone in a particular struggle. As flawed am I, maybe I can help? You too if you are willing to tell on yourself. 🙂
Just kidding there are other ways.
The passion comes from The Spirit that lives inside. And I know you have something worth saying too because you’re reading this. Or, Is it, just me? Naw! You won’t let the message become lost because of a few misplaced prepositions; would you?
Am learning, but I don’t want to focus so much on perfection and using big words to the point that I lose the point and you along with it. What’s important to me is I care more about being a Friend to God by sharing what He want me to share to His Glory, and my bloopers, well they’re just a part of that process whether I like it or not.
I am not ashamed, go ahead and Judge Me To Be Imperfect.
Just so you know before we judge; Flaws are perfect in the eyes of God. After all, it was Jesus Christ The Perfect One who saved my life from Breast Cancer, and He is still Head of Security. Have you ever heard Dead men tell no tells? Well, I would be a dead woman not telling them either if it wasn’t for Him, instead, I still have a voice. To God Be The Glory!
I love Testifying about how Glorious it is to be a Witness for Jesus Christ even it does expose my shortcomings and the trials that lead to an education that is worth every pain I felt. I think you understand, even when I say I ain’t or Where you at?
My Spirit told me somewhere, someplace, somebody is getting something from the Word of God, and I helped. Now that can put a 🙂 on a girl’s face, even if she did get a C in English.
Maybe if I keep writing I can raise my grade a notch or two; It’s Something To Think About!
Thank you, Jesus, for we know we are not perfect and all have sinned and fall short of The Glory of God, (Romans 3:23) It is in your name that we pray.
Thank you for your support.
