FlyLady says that perfection is our enemy and that a job done imperfectly is still a job done.
Jesus was our perfect lamb! Just a thought but if we strive for what only Jesus accomplished and try to do it on our own are we pushing Him away? I guess that I really need to remember that though I am created in His image, I am not perfect. Therefore, my house does not have to be perfect. He has called me to make my house a home. Not a perfect house but a lived in, comfortable home.
So, as I am backing away from this perfectionism will you join me? Let that stress just run right off of you. Give it all to God our perfect sacrifice!
May God strengthen you as you try to walk in His ways!
