As you have previously read in my first post it has taken me years to start this blog due to fear and laziness. But there was another reason as well, I was suffering with something…. Drumroll please………………….. , PERFECTIONITIS ( yeah I know it’s not a word but just go with me) . I believed and wanted everything to be perfect before I started and put the blog out there. I mean I am Christ’s ambassador , I represent him right so it should be perfect right?
I wanted the perfect color combo , perfect logo, perfect WordPress theme, perfect content , perfect layout, perfect pictures …… Perfect perfect perfect
Well what I eventually realized is that when GOD has called you to do something HE doesn’t ask “you” to make everything “perfect” before starting. HE just tells you to GO and walk in obedience. When we try to make everything “perfect” we rob GOD from revealing Himself to us, through HIM helping us along the way. It also allows us to grow in our trust and see HIM work even through our weaknesses. But please do not misunderstand I am not saying, I am not saying to just do things without effort and be be mediocre, No No No definitely not. What I am saying is Go girl with what you have.
• Say you want to use your talents to be a photographer but you do not have money for a Canon Rebel (or whatever is the best camera), we’ll do you have another camera or an iPhone or Samsung cell phone ( cell phone cameras have come a long way ). If you do, download some accompanying apps and give your all. Take the best pics ever until you are able to upgrade. Who knows GOD may allow a bomb sale to come around or someone to see your passion and gift you with one.
• GOD may have been seeking you out and putting a desire in your heart to get closer to him. But you are saying I do not know where to start and in order to come to GOD I need to be “perfect”. No start where you are , start reading one of the Gospels and allow GOD to transform and speak to you through his Word!
In Judges 6
GOD had called Gideon but Gideon starting looking at what he didn’t have … But the LORD said this
“The Lord turned to him and said, “Go in the strength you have and save Israel out of Midian’s hand. Am I not sending you?””
Judges 6:14 NIV
Guess what, This hold true for us…. When GOD calls you , Go Girl and watch GOD work! HE is calling YOU specifically !
Go Girl in the strength and with what you have!
