Picked this book up a while back & just started reading it!
It’s got lots of gold nuggets if you’re someone who struggles with perfectionism!
Maybe this will speak to you too?
“Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is – His good, pleasing and perfect will.” Romans 12:2
Here’s the books take on this verse:
“Test & Approve are active words. They’re experimental. They imply trying something & seeing what happens.
If you’re supposed to be perfect, then you don’t feel the freedom to take risks. Every time you test something & it doesn’t work out, you see it as failure and as a source of fear.
In contrast, God is more likely to see it as part of the growth process in your life. You’ve learned something new that will help you move forward in what He has for you.”
Being perfect & being afraid to fail has always held me back & a big reason why I haven’t taken risks. Becoming a coach & leading a team would’ve been in the big time FAILURE category but for once I acknowledged His prompting.
IF you are feeling stuck or scared or not so equipped it’s ok.
It’s normal to have those feelings ———> but it’s also ok to just jump in the midst of fear.
It’s not about being perfect, it’s all about trying something new & learning what God has to teach you along the way.
