|Awkward middle school years--gotta love 'em!|
By design, we are all perfectly imperfect.
This little nugget has gone with my pretty much everywhere--the same holds true with our husbands, our friends, our bosses--if people in our lives were perfect, than what use would we have for God? We would be too busy worshipping everyone on earth, because we'd all be so awesome!
But God, in His infinite wisdom, made people who can support us, come alongside us, and walk with us, but never able to completely replace the love, abundance, satisfaction, and perfection that God can bring to our lives.
One of my FAVORITE Psalms is Psalm 145:16, which says, “You open your hand and satisfy the desires of every living thing.”
Isn’t that imagery beautiful? I love the idea that God stands ready to open up His hand and perfectly satisfy our every desires.
