Couldn’t help but reblog this from

“If someone wants your very best version, that probably means that they’re going to get the same version that you’ve done before, the same as the best version you produced a week ago. If you want the best, it also means that you’re asking someone to repeat what’s come before.

On the other hand, if they want you, right here and right now, it won’t be perfect. It can’t be. It will merely be different and real and in the moment.
The opportunity in any given moment is to share your truth, to light a spark and to leap. But you can’t do that at the same time you’re being perfect.

There is no best jazz performance. That’s why it’s interesting.”

What’s best isn’t the same as what’s best for me.

God’s always moving, always at work but much of the time we don’t get to see it. It’s best that way. On those occasions when it’s clearly Him there’s nothing better, especially when He uses you to touch someone’s heart. One sure way to have your view obstructed again is to start to think you’re all that. Special and unique, which you are, is not the same as better.

It is so comforting to look back on the day and be able to see how God put it all together. How He somehow managed to keep my best interest in mind without once forsaking what was best for those around me. How He made it all work to the betterment of each of us. How could I not trust Him even more with tomorrow?

Too often when we have stepped away from The Lord we feel like we have disappointed Him and that we need to stay away until He feels better about us. This grieves Him. He wants to walk through everything with us; our best times, our worst times and all the time between.

Well, not really but it could be. If we’ll allow God into the difficulty or situation that’s troubling us, the good will be found. He wants the very best for us and has promised to show us what that is if we will let Him. He loves to take the crap in our lives and turn it into something wonderful.

No Guilt

If yesterday’s post was too familiar and the result was feeling guilty, I’m sorry. God never intends to shame us, that’s not Him, guilt is a crappy motivator. His desire to walk with us at all times is for our benefit, not His. He, way more than us, knows what’s best and with Him is always what’s best.
