By His Design

22 Jun

I have mentioned before that I have a daily quote calendar and I am fairly faithful about turning the page each day to see what wisdom may be revealed. Today I saw these words:


And who am I to argue with God? It’s okay that I don’t like onions or coffee. It’s okay that I am not very athletic and I can be somewhat clumsy at times. It’s okay that I like dessert–it’s by his design! It’s okay to not be perfect…no one is.

But we all have moments when we wish we were different. Sometimes I wish I didn’t like dessert so much! (I say that in fun.)

Truthfully we do sometimes wish things were different.

We strive toward a form of perfection every day.

“I wish I had not said that.”

I wish I knew what to say.”

“I wish I ________________________.”

(fill in the blank)

No one is perfect, yet, God provides. Perhaps a new view of perfection is what God has for us and his wisdom is always available for our learning and inspiration.

Philippians 3:12–14 — New Living Translation (NLT)

” I don’t mean to say that I have already achieved these things or that I have already reached perfection. But I press on to possess that perfection for which Christ Jesus first possessed me. 13 No, dear brothers and sisters, I have not achieved it, but I focus on this one thing: Forgetting the past and looking forward to what lies ahead, 14 I press on to reach the end of the race and receive the heavenly prize for which God, through Christ Jesus, is calling us.”

Amazing God, Please do not give up on me when I fail to see the beauty of your design. AMEN.
