Recently I wrote & gave my life testimony for the first time and it was through that process that I was reminded how much I have always felt the need to strive for perfection. Recently, I've taken up learning how to hand letter during my daily quiet time with God and sometimes I find myself getting so frustrated that I'm not that great at it yet and feeling like if I just practice, I will perfect that skill. But God reminded me: practice makes PROGRESS, not perfection. It is PROGRESS (and God's wisdom!) we should seek, not perfection. Because if you, like me, constantly spend your thoughts and energy on striving for perfection, you'll keep falling short, so instead why not simply seek growth and enjoy the journey?
