Re-Thinking Perfect




I’ve been reading in Sarah Young’s newest devotional, Jesus Today. Its a devotional for difficult and challenging times, which let’s be honest, could just about fit any season of our lives.

Summer came in for me this year a little anxious. I’m suppose to be relaxed and taking it easy but I was stressed and anxious with so much that needed to be done.

I am a recovering perfectionist. I’m not too thrilled about that, but a lot has gone into making me this way. Not just DNA, but also some early trauma in life served to wire this need within me for things to go “right”. I’ve come a long way baby, but it is definitely a thorn in my flesh- a place where I come to Jesus day after day.

I suppose that’s the point of a thorn after all.

The thing about a perfectionist is this: failure is not an option.
