Persistence over perfection. I’m not sure if you’ve heard of that. One day I woke up and I had a really hard time with just life that day, because I feel like I was doing so good in a lot of areas of my life, physically, my healthy lifestyle. I’m a mom, all the things. And then that day I woke up and I felt like I was doing a horrible job at everything, like I just went backwards. And then I heard from God and He said, “Persistence over perfection.”
In the word of God, it says in James 1:12, “Blessed is the one who perseveres under trial because having stood the test, that person will receive the crown of life that the Lord has promised to those who love him.” So He’s actually saying you, He’d rather you be persistent. He wants to give that person the crown. So wear the badge of persistence well, not perfection. That’s why Jesus came and died for us. He’s the perfect One. He’s carrying that burden. We don’t have to. We just have to keep going. And when we do, we will see that all of the things that we are hoping to be, He’s going to help us be them.
