I love this new song from Natalie Grant, Perfect People:
“There’s no such thing as perfect people.
There’s no such thing as a perfect life.
So come as you are, broken and scarred,
Lift up your heart and be amazed,
And be changed by a perfect God.”
I unintentionally dropped the ball on something at work this last week. It exposed my subconscious desires to be and do everything just perfectly. Yet, in the midst of my failing, I felt led to trust God as the One who assures me in His Word that this would be for my good. How could I not accept this misstep as part of His plan for my life to teach me a valuable lesson? Not only did God provide for my need that resulted from my mistake, but He also taught me in the process more about trusting Him and more about who I am in Him.
It has caused me to rejoice all the more in His perfection and His sovereign ways.
He is also in the process of perfecting our faith, in spite of our imperfections.
It’s such a beautiful picture, and I praise our perfect God for Who He is, for His perfect ways and His great love for us.
“I will proclaim the name of the LORD.
Oh, praise the greatness of our God!
He is the Rock, his works are perfect,
and all his ways are just.
A faithful God who does no wrong,
upright and just is he.”
