I DON’T HAVE TO BE PERFECT

You know sometimes I beat myself up
Trying to be the perfect writer.
To have the perfect rhyme.
To have the perfect poem.
I can’t count the times that God
has whispered to me…
“You don’t have to be perfect…
Just share what’s in your heart.”

It’s true!
Writing isn’t about having the perfect line…
The perfect phrase
Or the perfect quote.
It’s about what’s in my heart.
And for me it’s more about what
God has placed in my heart
To share with others.

I don’t have to be perfect.
I just have to be who
God created me to be.
And share the gifts
He has given to me.

He knew me long before I was conceived.
And He knows the plans He has for me.
To inspire and lead others to Him,
With the words He graciously bestows.

He knows I’m not perfect,
And never will I be.
But He knows my heart.
A heart that longs to bring
Others closer to Him.

And if my words touches one soul..
Then that’s a blessing.
And I am blessed to be a blessing.
