Perfectly Imperfect


I am a daughter.
A sister.
A friend.
A believer.
A worker.
A perfectionist.
A woman. 
A sinner.


I can be selfish.
Angry.
Controlling.
Fanatic.
Depressed.
Doubtful.
Skeptical.
Complicated.

But...
 I try my best.
Evaluate my mistakes.
Continue to be better.
Am here to help.
Am genuine.
Hold myself to a higher standard.

And Continue...
To seek understanding.
Challenge myself.
Love first.
Forgive.
To put God first.

Always.

I am a daughter of a King that has no faults and accepts all of my flaws and shortcomings. Who brings out who He made me to be and corrects the things that He didn't make me to be. 

I am unaccepted by others. He accepts me.
I am judged. He redeems me.
I am a sinner. He forgives me. 
I am a wretch. He saved me.
I am a mess. He restores me.
I was dead. He gave me life.
I was unrighteous. He made me righteous.

I am perfectly imperfect.

But I am His.

And that is good enough.

-A
