In the last couple of months I’ve been working and doing makeup work in the offline world to make ends meet. I almost said “real” world but I’d be quite wrong in saying the blogging world isn’t any more real than a dutiful desk job we can all be thankful for. I was coasting through and snagging threads of what I was trying to weave into a prosperous adult life but there were just some things left hanging in the balance that needed my attention. We had to clean out the thought attic. There’s this word most humans fear, the word “PERFECT”. I think deep inside many of us can’t stand it for real. Nobody really likes being reminded of something they’re not. I think we needn’t fear it though because I recently remembered that “perfect” is also an action word and not just a descriptive word.
To “perfect” is to work at and finish or make something as close to being complete as possible and to be “perfect” is to be finished completely. I never managed to put up a post for Spectrum bazaar because I felt back then that the event, while pretty, didn’t particularly strike a unique chord in me that day. I never delete pictures if I can help it just in case they can support something I want to say. One of the key words and phrases among the varied definitions of the word “perfect” are “complete” and “lacking nothing”. I’ve had my heartstrings pulled this month by the word “perfect” and also felt my Spirit telling me to no longer be afraid of this word. I just need to embrace what it means and the verse above that helps me in this does not contain the word “perfect” itself but bears its essence “I can do all things through Christ who gives me strength.” Philippians 4:13 We are only able to attain perfection with the guidance of the One Who lacks nothing.
May whatever you choose to perfect today bring you pure joy.
