Mama, don’t confuse consistency with perfectionism.
Here’s the deal —You’re not perfect you're human.
The Bible is pretty clear on this fact: we are not perfect, far, far, from it. Indeed there are many verses that reiterate this in countless ways.
Give yourself grace while you Forgive, Release, and Bless - yourself and others. Have the courage to Walk Away from what’s holding you hostage and step all into what God’s calling you to do.
Below ⬇️ are 10 freedom blockers fueling inconsistent thinking:
Fear of man
Jealousy, Comparison, Compromise
Frustration, Anger, doubt
"Indeed, we all make many mistakes. For if we could control our tongues, we would be perfect and could also control ourselves in every other way."
This should help us forgive ourselves our mistakes more freely, and those of others. So much of perfectionism is rooted in the (intentional or unintentional) comments of others. “It’s wonderful…but here’s how it could be better.” “I expected more from you.” “You let me down.”
Words like these, even when meant to instruct or help, can have painful and long-lasting consequences. Even though we ourselves have been hurt by these types of comments, we seem to think that it’s perfectly appropriate to repeat them to others, especially our children.
If we can remember that we all make mistakes, we can extend to others the same grace that we ourselves would love to receive, the grace that says, “It’s okay to make mistakes, we all do it. Let’s work together to improve things.”
In this way, we put love and grace ahead of perfection. We focus on a consistent goal-oriented journey embracing the moments.
Forgive us Lord for being obsessed with “the goal(s)” and missing the treasures released during the journey. Help us to always honor and glorify you in the moments. Today. Right. Now in Jesus’s name, Amen 🙏
