Do you ever just sit and think to yourself?? Do you wonder why you have so many pains, hard times, and things go wrong while other people don't seem to have any pains or hard times and they seem to be the perfect person?? Well, I'm almost sure that by now as a survivor or care giver you have noticed that the world is not perfect. You don't have to live long to figure that out, but something within us as human beings still want to experience perfection in our lives.
We want the perfect family celebration, the perfect marriage, the perfect friends, the perfect job, the perfect neighborhood, the perfect salary, the perfect vacation and the perfect religion. Maybe we want what we think would be perfect. I have even rolled a perfect game in bowling, that's a 300 game, 12 strikes in a row. But the truth is perfection is a completely unrealistic expectation. It simply doesn't exist on earth how we want to think it should and it was with Jesus Christ in His days.
As long as we live we will deal with imperfection. We can be miserable about that or we can be gracious toward ourselves, others, and our circumstances and respond with our faiths, which ever they are, and flexibility. We must remain flexible to every situation in our lives. Yet we will say our health was perfect so how did we encounter a stroke??
When anyone can get us to focus on the imperfections in our spouse, our marriage will be filled with frustration and disappointment instead of peace and joy. When we continue to focus on our stroke our lives will fill with things we feel can't be done by us.We tend to think we are now not in a perfect physical condition but still able to get things done ourselves.
Expect good things to happen in our lives but be realistic and realize that we all have to deal with difficult things and remember there are no perfect human beings on this earth no matter how you see and view them and what they may have accomplished. Our attitudes will make the difference between whether we live with continual frustrations and disappointments or whether we can accept the imperfections and continue to enjoy our lives in spite of them. We can't be perfect human beings in our world these days and times. When we try we are setting ourselves up for failures!!
