Episode 111—Perfect Failures

Episode 111-Perfect Failures Podcast Cover

Perfect Failures

The issue of perfectionism keeps us spinning in circles. We try to be perfect, but as humans it is just not perfect. So if you have a goal of being perfect, you will fail. And then that will stop you dead in your tracks every time. 

Our goal should be to live as God wants us to live. So if you want to be perfect, be the perfect failure. Confess your failure, hand it to God and then, continue on your journey learning all you can from your failures.

Without God’s grace flowing through me, I am weak in our human strength. When I stop trying to get everything perfect and allow God to work through me, life begins to start working out. That’s because finally I realize I need God.  “Then, I am strong, truly able, truly powerful, truly drawing from God’s strength,” (2 Cor. 12:10 AMP).

In this episode I talk about how to overcome perfectionistic tendencies, set good boundaries for your life and allow the fruit of the Spirit called self-control to be evident in your life.
