Dear God

Sharing a piece of my journey with you, directly from the pages of my journal. Simple things turn into bigger gifts. Never forget these precious moments, they play a part in Gods grand design. This is how He Loves on us!

You know this may seem strange, but God I hope you and my readers understand. I tend to be a bit clumsy. I rush to complete a task, without pacing myself. LOL!

In the past, I would get so frustrated with myself over spilt milk, so to speak. I was very hard on myself. Let’s face it, God you knew I was an extreme perfectionist. (We’ve come along way in our walk together, Jesus!) I never like to make mistakes, even if its an accident. At that point of my life, I never appreciate who I was and how to let mistakes go. You know we could be our own worst critic.

Anyway, fast forward, I was in the bathroom putting some hair oil into a plastic bottle. Instead, of holding the small bottle in my hand to prevent it from tipping over. So, it ended up all over the floor and on my gym clothes. (I found this out later at gym, when I looked in the mirror and seen oil blot stains on my clothes, lol! I didn’t let it ruin my workout!). What can I say, life’s full of spills!

This time, I didn’t get terribly upset at myself. I took a deep breathe, calmly cleaned up the mess. I didn’t chastise myself, accidence happen. Doesn’t make me less of a person. A still small voice spoke to my heart, “It’s alright. Accidents happen unexpectedly. You are still a Child of God.” As I was cleaning, I thought about how I’ve changed, not only my mind, but my heart is in sync. The way I see it, now. God when we make mistakes, you never get mad at us. In fact, you never give up on us, you never say, “You’re a mistake, a disappointment.” You say quite the opposite, “Daughter you are valuable, worthy, and a women I’ve designed for purpose. Nothing you can do will stop me from loving you. I love you unconditionally.” God, you cleanse us and give us a fresh start. A fresh start everyday!

“Create in me a clean heart, O God; and renew a right spirit within me.” Psalm 51:10

What a great reflection. I’d say, the old is definitely gone and I’ve stepped into the new. Still, under construction. Certainly, not achieving perfection. There is no one like God. I’m sure many of your other children can surely relate. Thank you for this special moment to see the beauty of transformation.

  1. I can totally identify with this! I am a perfectionist, but learning the art of not being so “perfect” in things. lol We have to learn to embrace the mistakes and imperfections, because they add that zest to life. This is a beautiful thought, Tiffany, and an awesome message that when we beat ourselves up, God is there to lift us up and remind us that He loves us with our imperfections and all. ☺️

  2. Wow I needed this today…as I was feeling defeated in replacing my bathroom fixtures + and nothing worked. Yes I have to reorder everything because I didn’t measure properly …Yes I called myself all types of names because I felt stupid for not knowing. But I have to remember to look at things differently + how would I have known what to do if I hadn’t tried and failed. It’s about learning something new everyday…now deep breath…calm down and start again.

    1. Yes, it is. There’s purpose in mistakes, (you know what not to do, lol!) and we go at it again. There’s purpose is pausing and breathing deep to alleviate the pressure of anger and frustration. 😖. I feel your pain though, I still have moments. 🙏🏼
