31 Days to Clean - Day 12

Day 12 - The Thing We All Have in Common - Imperfection

No matter how much you think a person is one has it all together. Not even your super organized has everything in their proper spot sister that you've been wishing to be like.

She is not perfect, and neither are you. And that's ok!

"We have Jesus' perfection imparted to us for all of eternity if we know Him" - Hebrews 10:14

Isn't that a sigh of relief?!
So why get our panties in a wad over having everything together. Life is just a huge step of faith that we take one day at a time. We all try our best as we fight against a sin saturated world that pushes hard against us. Give yourself a break though. You're not alone in your struggles or your feelings of failure. We are all there! You don't have to be good enough. Your worth does not lie in your ability to clean well; your worth and value lie in Christ ALONE!

Mary Challenge:
Think about some areas in your life where you have been striving to be perfect (or near perfect). Perhaps you are comparing yourself to another mom, or putting unnecessary burdens on yourself because of what someone else has said or written. Take these areas before the throne of grace and ask God to replace and lies you are believing with the truth.

Martha Challenge:
Living Room - Clean and organize shelves and electronics. Shine wood furniture.
