Perfectly Flawed

You loyal readers will notice that I changed the name of my blog. Nothing too exciting but I'd love to share with you how this name change came about. :)

I have really enjoyed exploring my creative side lately; not just in music, which seems to be the creative category I fall into ALL the time. But I have loved exploring what I can make with my hands, like sewing. Being able to slap a few pieces of fabric together and transform it into something beautiful is so rewarding and fuels my creative mind.

The problem with each of these creations is that no matter what I do, there is always some flaw along the way. Yes, I've made some ugly things and messed up a lot, that's how you learn (in case you didn't catch that in elementary school). But even my final projects, the ones I take such time to finish, always have some element of imperfection.

As I pondered on this I was brought back to my relationship with Jesus. Jesus, the Perfect One, no other human being has walked this earth like Him. He was completely perfect. Jesus could do no wrong! Yet, the Perfect One, reaches out to me, the flawed one and says "I don't expect you to be perfect, that's what I am here for."  God made me and all of my imperfections so I would completely rely on Him.

So here I am, perfectly flawed. Just like my sewing creations no matter what I do, I will never be perfect. I will never know everything, be able to do everything or have every right answer. I'll try something, mess up, then try again. But Jesus is there every step of the way saying "I don't expect perfection, I love you for your imperfections."

As I continue my journey as a wife, mother, daughter, sister, friend and all other hats of life I'll wear, I will remind myself that it's okay to be flawed...

because I am perfectly flawed.
