God Knows You’re Not Perfect

Stop crying and complaining that you haven’t been able to have a perfect life. Some people blame and hate themselves for failing, falling or not meeting their goals or some set standards even when God who created you knows and doesn’t expect you to be perfect in this world. God created us as human beings in His image, with a combination of faith and frailty, sometimes we aim high and sometimes fall short; sometimes we get some things wonderfully right and other times terribly wrong.

If you have failed today or experiencing some challenge or the other, do not despair or hate yourself for it, never consider yourself a failure because tomorrow is another day and you will have fresh opportunities to make up for your missed chances.

No life is sweet all the time. No one experiences successes and victories all the time, the same way the day gives way for the night that’s the same with our lives, we win some and lose some; we laugh sometimes and cry other times. Such is life. Let’s learn to accept it and live it!

Give Yourself Little Room To Fail

Some of us are too hard on ourselves. When it comes to our lives, goals, activities, we just want perfection. If you are one of those perfect human beings who always keep every resolution you make, and are in complete control of your activities and goals, more power to you. Personally, I still struggle with my resolutions and goals, and I believe it’s only natural to make mistakes, to fail in life. So if you find you are having problems keeping those rules you made with yourself, you are not alone.

Folks, don’t get too rigid on yourselves, allow little room to fail and make mistakes, because when you strive for perfection, to always be 100% efficient, it often leads to a life of misery when you fail. The resulting shame and guilt makes you judge yourself as unworthy; as good for nothing.

Truly great people always accept their flaws and inadequacies. They smile when they fail instead of feeling shame and guilt. They know that each failure often leads them straight to success. Failure is part of life, and he who must succeed must learn to fail.

While we may look at ourselves as being strong, intelligent, and highly advanced, we are still flesh… and like the Bible says, the flesh is weak. God knows you will fail, even in pleasing Him that’s why he allowed grace and mercy for you. As you journey towards greatness and success, don’t lose heart when you fail or make mistakes. Also try to empathize rather than condemn and criticize others when they fail also.

Live your greatest life! Give yourself little room to fail.
