I want to say that I have left everything behind while I seek to share Jesus. The fact is, I haven’t. It is a process. Gideon, when God told him to tear down the idols, built by his very own father, was so afraid that he did it in the middle of the night. Leaving behind old fears and patterns takes time. Here are a few things Im learning to leave behind.
Perfection. I want to be a perfect mom, perfect wife, perfect friend. I can’t be. Perfectionism does not make us available to be used by God. It is through our weaknesses that God’s strength is shown.
