I feel like I've really been on top of my blogging game lately..."in the zone" so to speak. Suddenly, when I felt like I didn't have a "great" story, I wasn't willing to settle for okay. I didn't want to just phone it in, so I called in sick instead, a "vacation day."
When Donny Osmond was doing "Joseph & the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat" he did well and got great reviews. Instead of increasing his confidence however, it increased his expectations on himself that he had to do better and better. Finally, after driving himself crazy, his wife said "Just be the best Donny you can be. That's enough."
So after driving myself crazy this week to come up with a fabulous blog posting, I decided instead to just have to be the best Kelly I can be. That's enough. God's grace covers the rest. Maybe this post won't make you feel fabulous or have you typing "great analogy!" Maybe you'll have to hit another blog today for encouragement. (Maybe you're even thinking you must have missed the great postings! LOL!)
Or maybe you do need to hear that you too are indeed enough. Maybe you don't need to hear it your writing, but in some other area of your life where you are trying hard, but still feel like you're not making the mark. Just be the best YOU that you can be. That's enough. Because God's grace is enough.
I'm not perfect. But I know the One who is.
Psalm 18:30 -- As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is flawless. He is a shield for all who take refuge in him.
Psalm 19:7 -- The law of the LORD is perfect, reviving the soul. The statutes of the LORD are trustworthy, making wise the simple.
2 Corinthians 12:9 -- But he said to me, "My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is made perfect in weakness." Therefore I will boast all the more gladly about my weaknesses, so that Christ's power may rest on me.
