like water to my soul today…

“Beloved, do we believe that the only way to do something acceptably is to do

it perfectly?  Sometimes God is more aware than we of just how much

He requires of us.  He knows how hard it is going to be for us.

…I’m not suggesting we shouldn’t do our best.  I’m simply saying

that sometimes just surviving certain tasks without falling

apart is our best and in those times God is not ashamed of our

performance.  He’s proud of us for fighting

overwhelming human emotions to do His will.  God isn’t

interested in our stellar performance but in our hearts.

He loves our willingness and obedience despite our insecurities.”

(from It’s Tough Being a Woman by Beth Moore)

I just really needed to read this today…Thank you Lord.
