Our Imperfection...Made Perfect

I have an antique library card catalog next to my desk upon which I have a bunch of clutter...amidst the clutter is this wooden block with one of my favorite verses, Jeremiah 31:3 😊

Each time I look at it, however, I see the imperfection. The crafter wrote "and" instead of "an." It always bothers me.

This morning I said to myself, "Lord I wish this didn't have that mistake - or I wish I would have seen it the day I purchased the block" (there are sayings or verses on all sides - and when I saw this side- it immediately went into my basket ...in such a hurry that I did not pay close attention and did not notice the flaw).

Today, the Lord whispered back to me...this block was created by man-in all his imperfection. Yet when viewed through my eyes- I only see perfection. The day you bought this block, I allowed you to see through My eyes-perfection...in the same way I view you."

I am so grateful to my Lord- the Lover of my soul- who loves with a perfect, unconditional, everlasting love -his creation, who because of His amazing sacrifice, is able to view me as one who is perfect and worthy of His unconditional, everlasting love.

May your day today be blessed!
