Can I tell you something?
I’m not perfect.
Whoa. Wait, what?! You’re not, Mere?!
Yep, it’s true. I’m not perfect. Big surprise, right?
And it’s funny because as I’ve been preparing mentally and spiritually for my big trip to Peru, I’ve realized it even more so. All my flaws are coming out and it’s humbling because I see how imperfect I am.
I can be selfish.
I get aggravated when things don’t go how I expect them.
I get ornery when I’m hungry.
I covet other people and their belongings, life, blog, jobs.
The list goes on and on, and you can see I’m not perfect. I’m extremely far from it. However, I love that I’m not perfect and that God still wants to use me. I love that He sees past all my flaws and He molds me into His image.
I’m a work in progress.
God is refining my character and personality traits daily. I’m trying to be more like Him in what I say, do, and how I react to situations. He is taking all of my flaws and making me into a beautiful work of art.
Don’t you love how God can take an imperfect work in progress and turn it into something beautiful? I sure do.
