Only Jesus is perfect.
For some reason this is a lesson that I often forget. And so, it manifests itself in trying to keep a perfect looking journal. Complete with nice handwriting. Nothing crossed out. No mistakes. Ink color that never changes. Scripture dressed up.
When I have this ideal – I don’t practice the habit of writing the Word.
This lack of being in the Word allows idolatry to creep in. Like perfection.
While I think it was noble of me to attempt to honor my children with the legacy of a handwritten Bible, it simply wasn’t practical.
I need Jesus now.
So I journal, take notes, list prayer requests, outline blog posts, and write the Word all in the same journal. The perfect Word of God mixed in with my imperfect but real humanity.
Just how God likes it.
I’m honored to host this week’s #WritetheWord link up with Traci from I’ll Take Tea.
