• Do I accept imperfection in myself?

    This used to be quite a struggle for me. I overcompensated for feelings of worthlessness and guilt by overachieving and outproducing. My self-worth was tied up in my ability to out perform others academically.

    Slowly God’s grace has softened my heart in this matter. I’ve come to appreciate, understand and live in this truth: If God accepts me and loves me – in spite of my shortcomings – then whom am I to disagree with God and declare that I’m no good and that my imperfections don’t matter?
