We are stuck in a society that celebrates the illusion of perfection while demonizing the transparent and authentic.
Take the perfect family photo.
Edit your selfie so it looks perfect.
Write and rewrite your tweet until it’s perfect.
Put a smile on before you walk into church.
Pick yourself up by the bootstraps.
In a world that is promoting a fake perfect, Jesus says, “Come all who are weary and broken hearted.” I don’t know where you are reading this today, but you aren’t perfect. You don’t have to be. You are loved despite all of your imperfections.
It’s okay to not be okay.

The world doesn’t need the perfect, put together, edited version of you. Jesus doesn’t want the manicured pristine version of you. He wants you.
I’m tired of everyone, including myself, trying to display perfection all the time. Perfection isn’t always perfect. Sometimes we need something different.
Let’s be authentic together.
Allow Jesus to redeem our imperfections together.
It’s okay to not be okay, but we don’t have to stay there. In order to make some progress in our lives, let’s commit today to being as authentic as we possibly can. Be vulnerable with your struggles. Stop pretending you are perfect. Allow someone else to speak words of encouragement and hope into your life.
It’s okay to not be okay, but we don’t have to stay there.
