Don't Let the Devil Steal From You

Perfection! That is what has held me back in the past. It has been what has kept my confidence down. It has been what got my feelings hurt a lot. It has kept me from joining in on fun activities because I didn't want to look like a fool. I am a perfectionist when it comes to myself if you don't see the point.

Give Grace to Yourself

Even as I step out and film my blog Into the Water I find myself getting my feelings hurt if someone mentions something I could have done a little different. I strive for perfection. I tend to compare myself a lot. Deep down I want to be the best at everything I do. Thats not a bad thing, right? No!

Here is something that the Lord has been directing me to change in my mind though. He has been reminding me to, yes, do everything as onto the Lord. (Colossians 3:23) That is scriptural. He reminds me that I am not perfect and that I am still going to always be learning as I step out into the new things that He has called me to do. There will probably always be a learning curve. I will always be seeing a more efficient way to do what I was called to do. Rather it be at work, in my home, in relationships, or anything I will always be changing my thinking and habits as I am transformed daily by the Word. The Holy Spirit will be constantly working with me as I allow him to help me in this transformation.

Don't let the devil steal from you.

So, perfection is not a bad thing to strive for. But grace needs to be given to myself in the daily transformation to be more like Jesus. As I learn to develop a podcast or write a blog post or anything within what the Lord is laying on my heart, even if it is not perfect, the Lord knows my heart. He knows that I am trying to do something that is outside of my comfort zone. He knows that I will always do my best at whatever I do. None of us need to allow the thought that I'm not perfect enough to do this (whatever this may be). Your "this" may be trying for a new job. It may be trying a new hobby. It may be getting involved at your local church. Satan wants you to stay stuck instead of stepping out in the water where God has the best for you. He wants you stay insecure and in fear. Don't let him keep you there! Take the chance and let the Holy Spirit lead you into the best for your life. Don't let the devil steal from you.
