Give Yourself Permission to Do It Wrong!


God wants us to be determined, not perfectionistic.

Too often, we’re blocked because we’re terrified of the idea of not being perfect. We have this project in our heart but ... what if it fails? I really want to write this book but ... what if it isn’t perfect? I’d like to get involved as a volunteer, but what if I’m not talented enough? Etc., etc.

The pursuit of perfection often leads to procrastination ... that is, putting it off until tomorrow. What if you readjusted your criteria today? If you have to achieve something that’s out of reach before even being able to start whatever it is, it’s quite possible that you’ll never start!

“Perfection resides in imperfection.” It’s found in the gift of being human, in making mistakes, in trying again—or not. God wants us to be determined, not perfectionistic.

Rather than expecting perfection, go forward with determination! Rely on God, on His wisdom. As the Bible says in 1 Chronicles 16:11-12, “Seek the Lord and His strength; Seek His face evermore! Remember His marvelous works which He has done, His wonders, and the judgments of His mouth…”

Fear of making a mistake doesn’t have to keep you in a place of inaction. I encourage you to lean on the Lord and release your imperfections to Him.
