Day 10

Good afternoon !! It’s been such a blessing hearing from some of you over the past few days. I know many of you are trying really hard to implement some changes not just during the fast but as life changes which is awesome! In growth and change it is important to know and understand that you are not expected to be perfect - though we move towards perfection, we are only perfected in Christ. What does that mean exactly? That means that we must rely on Him to help us towards perfection in HIS way not ours. It can get frustrating trying to make changes and to continue to mess up even as you are trying your hardest. 

Remember it is only your job to keep praying and keep trying, the Lord sees your heart and your effort and most importantly hears your prayers. In 2 Corinthians 12:9 the Lord tells us "My grace is sufficient for you, for power is perfected in weakness”. Being what society calls a “perfectionist” can cause you to stumble even more. An example may be that when you do not achieve the goal you wanted to, instead of embracing your progress you become negative and tear yourself down. 

Positivity is acknowledging those efforts in yourself and others while striving for Godly perfection which is actually in our imperfections. Sometimes the change comes in a day, sometimes it takes years but remember “And let us not grow weary of doing good, for in due season we will reap, if we do not give up.” Gal 6:9. Do not give up, do not get frustrated, just remember your progress not perfection. 

Today I challenge you to reflect on your progress and pray to the Lord to help you as you strive for His best. I am proud of you all for wanting to become more positive but most importantly God is! Have a blessed day!! -Monica
