Perfect Expectations



There is something about that smile that persuades one into believing in miracles.  One looks deep into the eyes of Christ and finds that nothing is impossible.  Love is only a prayer away, but why is it that we humans feel so unloved sometimes?  Why do I look into the mirror at the end of the day to see everything I have done wrong instead of the things I do right?  Why is my brain trained to underestimate my accomplishments and focus on my failures?  This world expects things that are not aligned with the heart of Christ.

This world expects perfection, but God sees us with mercy.
God did not create us as perfect beings.  We are here on this earth as people who are free to struggle, not struggling to be free.  God does not want us to be perfect because he wants us to experience his amazing grace.  If we were perfect, we would not want God’s hand intertwined with ours, guiding us through the waves of life.  There would be no struggle if we were, in fact, perfect.  This world wants everything to make sense.  This world itches for answers to all of the “why” questions.  The one thing that this world has yet to understand is that there doesn’t need to be an answer to every question.  There is a God who already has it all figured out, and all we have to do is trust Him.  He created the world and everything in it, so he is very much capable of walking with us through this life.
