We must learn to stop mixing our performances with our personality.  Sadly, very often we find ourselves broken down when our performance doesn't match with our personality. We beat ourselves up and tag ourselves as failures. It's okay to want to be better than we were yesterday, but whoever said it was okay to write ourselves off? The older I get, the more I come to realize that God's mercy never runs out. He never writes anyone off. Our sins may be great, but his mercy and love is always greater.

In our world today, there’s always the pressure to be perfect, to have an impeccable performance before you get applauded nor recognized. The efforts and sweats, put in don’t always amount to anything if you fail. Sitting on the sidelines of life becomes a norm. You feel as though you’ve blown it too many times, you don’t measure up.

Today, I need you to get this truth down into your spirit: You may have made mistakes. You may have struggled with one addictions or the other, none of your flaws should define you. You are more than your scars, there’s more to you than you can ever imagine. God isn’t running from you, he’s running to you.

Stop going through life rejected. Turn around and see the beauties around you. You may have made a mistake, it doesn’t mean you’re a mistake. You may have failed, it still doesn’t mean you’re a failure. That’s what you did and not who you are. Your performance may not have been perfect, but when your heart still trust in God completely, then, there are no limits to what he can do through you and for you.

Some situations may not be good to us at a particular time, but will be good for us in the long run. It’s never easy to see the forest from the streets, but with perseverance comes victory. Quit playing the pity party and start the greatness in you. No one has got the right to write you off unless you give them the permission to. Do your part and no matter what happens, keep moving forward.

Blessings and Love ?
