Imperfections are okay

So, I have a pimple on my face, and this is rare because my skin is pretty clear. Its funny because as I was looking in the mirror, I realized that I won’t ever be perfect. Our flaws are what makes us unique. I’m a believer in Jesus, and I believe that one day he will return and we will live eternally with him.

As long as we’re on this earth, we will never be perfect. I hear the term “I’m human” to justify behaviors, but I do understand that being perfect or being close to perfect will never happen. Revelation 21:4 says, “He will wipe every tear from their eyes. There will be no more death’ or mourning or crying or pain, for the old order of things has passed away.”(NIV) How wonderful it is to know that one day all of the foolishness and the craziness of this world will be over.  I hold onto this hope and it keeps me going.

In my past relationship, the guy I was involved with made me feel less than constantly pointing out my flaws. After we broke up, I felt like I needed to lose all my weight and look amazing to spite him, but  then I realized that was his problem with me and not my problem.  I am fearfully and wonderfully made. I am fine just the way that I am and if anyone has an issue with it, its their problem not mine. I like me. I am comfortable and loving who I am and the person I am becoming. I have accepted me for me and I love it. I’m going to be judge regardless so its best to live my life.

God loves me and that truly is all that matters. I have a great support system of family and friends. Imperfections are okay and its what makes us the unique, incredible individuals that we are, and besides who wants to be like somebody else, when you can be you.
