Let Go of the Weight of Perfection

A woman in a hard hat

And God saw every thing that He had made, and behold, it was very good.—Genesis 1:31 (KJV)

In the above verse, the Great Creator didn’t describe the Universe as perfect. “It was very good.” When you find yourself seeking perfection in yourself or something you’ve created, turn to today’s verse. Your best is good enough. Celebrate very good jobs well done.

Today's Prayer:

Dear God, help me to let go of unreal expectations and unattainable goals. Help me to be fulfilled knowing my best is very good.
